Could Dr. King Have Given the Inaugural Benediction?

While I'm not personally religious, it offends me that self-righteous (!) progressives are waging a WAR ON RELIGION (a real one), when christianity is so fundamental to our moral code. I wonder the historic fate of Dr. King, when today the liberals are intent on belittling and/or denying our founders faith. I fear in 50 years Dr. King will be a legendary figure, unrelated to reality, recast in terms the elites find most helpful. For doubters--refer them to the ancient monument as evidence. Our grandkids will be taught it in school (and pre-school).

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 Louie Giglio, designated to give the benediction at this year’s presidential inauguration, has withdrawn, under apparent pressure, after the surfacing of remarks he made, some 25 years ago, about the sinfulness of homosexuality.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