Could Dr. King Have Given the Inaugural Benediction?

Trying to surmise what a leader long dead might do in response to the issues of today may be an entertaining thought exercise, but it's a fool's errand if taken seriously. We simply don't know how King's thinking might have evolved had he not been gunned down in Memphis. And regarding Ms. Parker's claim of an "ongoing march toward tyranny," may I suggest that what she and her ilk are actually undergoing is an ongoing push toward the politically impotent fringe as their rigid ideas fail to evolve with those of the rest of society's. They are welcome to think whatever they want in a free country, but they can hardly expect anachronistic nonsense to be treated seriously in mainstream circles.

Morality does NOT evolve Dumb Dumb.
It is a Biblical Principal. God, (and I know you despise the concept), said it, therefore it is FACT.

Correction: Ms. Parker's actual wording is "the ongoing march forward of tyranny...."

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 Louie Giglio, designated to give the benediction at this year’s presidential inauguration, has withdrawn, under apparent pressure, after the surfacing of remarks he made, some 25 years ago, about the sinfulness of homosexuality.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