Could Dr. King Have Given the Inaugural Benediction?

Recent revelations also place Hoover as gay and JFK as a notorious philanderer, as well as BHO frequenting Chicago gay bathhouses. My friend, we are all sinners - MLK, Andy Young, and the other black preachers among them. It doesn't change the fact that they were doing God's work, nor does it change the fact that BHO is undoing God's work.

If non-sinners were the only people who could do God's work, God's work would, alas, not get done. And I suspect it is a sin to elevate oneself above other sinners. For example, bashing gays or muslims as though one had a divine advantage from God to do so, I would think is the sin of "Pride". And if you find yourself prideful, look to Christ for lessons in humility. If the only way you can feel God's glory shining on your life is by smiting other sinners with the written word, look to Christ. But, if you want to exclude people who don't follow your faith and tennets from your homes and your temples, again, look to Christ -- he kicked their butts out on the street! But he left them alone again as soon as they were out of temple...

Right on! That's why we need a real Redeemer/Savior. But his Spirit has been alive in all people since the beginning of time. David 1334, I love King David, who did an unbelievably terrible thing, but he never stopped being the "beloved of God," which is what he remembered as he was able to face himself and accept his lack of perfection and asked for forgiveness. Was he perfect afterwards? Probably not. The race is long and falling and taking detours is reality.

This is the old "We are all sinners" ploy. Then homosexuality, adultery, pedophilia are all "God's Work"? There is NOTHING valid or credible that Hoover did anything homosexual. You are trusting Jan Leno Letteman who impregnated a servent of his. You are just chanting the homosexual line. People forget that Hoover did a great deal to ferit out the Klan racists. Some of those cells had more FBI type than Klansmen. Hoover didn't trust King -- a sign of wisdom, -- but lying about Hoover is just what the uber-Left & foppish feys do.

BHO is a good man, but I believe he is a bad president. If history could rewrite itself, I firmly believe that MLK would have been a far better president.

Sadly, history is written in stone and can not be changed.

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