Could Dr. King Have Given the Inaugural Benediction?

What really sucks is it raises the cost of premiums for everyone, nationwide. But some people get a subsidy to make up for it. The sad part, even with the subsidy, they'll still have to pay more in premiums than they probably would have before the ACA. Those of us who make too much to qualify for subsidies, well, we'll pay out the nose ONCE AGAIN to support bad policies and poorly thought out economics. Which makesme think it really is just another trick to funnel our money to the cronies of the year.

The Rev. Louie Giglio, designated to give the benediction at this year’s presidential inauguration, has withdrawn, under apparent pressure, after the surfacing of remarks he made, some 25 years ago, about the sinfulness of homosexuality.

Note that the pastor of the evangelical Passion City Church in Atlanta has been pushed off the stage not because of a deed, but because of words he said -- words expressing a widely held Christian belief that homosexuality is a sin.

Let’s recall that freedom of religion appears in the First Amendment of our constitution, alongside the protection of freedom of speech.

So what kind...
