BREAKING: Anti-gay pastor removed from inaugural program http://thkpr.gs/WSBcW2


Louis Giglio, the anti-LGBT pastor who had been announced to perform the benediction at President Obama’s second inauguration, has been removed from the program, ABC News’s Jonathan Karl reported Thursday.

The move came after ThinkProgress reported Wednesday that in the 1990s, Giglio had given a lengthy sermon in which he advocated for dangerous “ex-gay” therapy for gay and lesbian people, referenced a biblical passage often interpreted to require gay people be executed, and impelled Christians to “firmly respond to the aggressive agenda” and prevent the “homosexual lifestyle” from becoming accepted in society

Update:

CNN’s Eric Marrapodi is reporting that Giglio voluntarily withdrew from the program.

(In D.C. parlance, that can still be interpreted as a WH takedown)
