Could Dr. King Have Given the Inaugural Benediction?

The 1960's King, maybe not - a modern-day King, sure no problem. We have no way of knowing what King might have become had he lived. Look at Jesse Jackson, for example. Pointing out that yesterday's liberals were more conservative that today's really doesn't say much.

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 Louie Giglio, designated to give the benediction at this year’s presidential inauguration, has withdrawn, under apparent pressure, after the surfacing of remarks he made, some 25 years ago, about the sinfulness of homosexuality.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