Louie Giglio pulls out of inaugural over anti-gay comments

An evangelical pastor from Atlanta announced Thursday that he would not give the benediction at President Obama’s swearing-in ceremony after a sermon he gave on homosexuality in the mid-1990s resurfaced earlier this week.

In that sermon, the Rev. Louie Giglio called for Christians to “firmly respond to the aggressive agenda” of some in the gay community and warns that widespread gay marriage ”would run the risk of absolutely undermining the whole order of our society.”

In a statement, Giglio said that his participation “will be dwarfed by those seeking to make their agenda the focal point of the inauguration.”

“As we now work to select someone to deliver the benediction, we will ensure their beliefs reflect this administration’s vision of inclusion and acceptance for all Americans,” the PIC said. ...

Jesus Christ knows The Truth infinitely better than the people in the movie you linked

Matthew 11
20 Then He began to rebuke the cities in which most of His mighty works had been done, because they did not repent:
21 “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Tyre and Sidon, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes.
22 But I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you.
23 And you, Capernaum, who£ are exalted to heaven, will be brought down to Hades; for if the mighty works which were done in you had been done in Sodom, it would have remained until this day.
24 But I say to you that it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment than for you.”


25 At that time Jesus answered and said, “I thank You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and prudent and have revealed them to babes.
26 Even so, Father, for so it seemed good in Your sight.

27 All things have been delivered to Me by My Father, and no one knows the Son except the Father. Nor does anyone know the Father except the Son, and the one to whom the Son wills to reveal Him.

Apparently not...

Clearly, speaking on this issue has not been in the range of my priorities in the past fifteen years. Instead, my aim has been to call people to ultimate significance as we make much of Jesus Christ.
And Jesus never said go and sin no more?

Yes, God bless him for preaching biblical morality nearly 20 years ago.

Has biblical morality not been relevant since?

It couldn't happen to a nicer guy! He seems to never have known,
Gil Rugh said or, wrote:
The character of God's Word reflects the character of Him who gave it. That means it is unchanging, sufficient, and powerful to save, to effect, sustain and nourish spiritual growth. Because the very character of God is revealed through it, every detail shall come to pass exactly as God has said. It is in the addition of man's philosophy, ideas and opinions to it, that it becomes nullified and ineffective. 'The pure milk of the Word' is eternally sufficient to satisfy and nourish the believers heart and mind.

Just as God doesn't change, neither does the responsibility of God's people to, and with, His Word change

excerpt from the summary of Responsibility to God's Word.

No the Obama team doesn't want him because they want to be inclusive to queers, but remember Bush never invited back the black preacher he delivered the Gospel at "Baby-faced" Bush's first inaugural.

"The new political gospel: public office is private graft." --Mark Twain

Christopher is right. By backing out and issuing his statement of surrender, Giglio is saying "Well I stand for the gospel and marriage is no so important that I would step into the fire and be a distraction". Marrkiage and the gospel are intertwined in Scripture. We are the bride of Christ. Husbands love your wives as Christ loves the Church and gave himself for her. What God has joined, no one can separate. Giglio should have made them disinvite him. or shown up as a Godly witness with a backbone.

Why would Giglio even say yes to Obama? Also, did he really withdraw (as his press release indicated) or was he fired by Obama?

Well, thats what it's all about these days...can't offend anyone. What really bothers me is that so-called followers of Christ are becoming increasingly politically correct and tolerant. They seem to be caving in to the pressures of this world instead of standing up publicly for what's good and right. I don't know how any Bible believing Christian can cave to the pressures around them, especially the leaders who are now teaching their sheep to be tolerant, basically teaching that God has changed and now accepts almost everyone...no matter what. Well, that's true, I guess, but not before they have repented and turned from their wickedness.
