Could Dr. King Have Given the Inaugural Benediction?

"Free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, we are free at last." Truly inspirational; but, something that hasn't been achieved in the USA. The Federal government has replaced the plantation owner and independent economic freedom has only come to a small percentage. Sadly, fatherhood and family unity has regressed from the time of this speech. What would Dr. King have to say about the abortion industry and the millions of unborn that have been denied their freedom to live. Would have likened Planned Parenthood's Clinics to the Hitler's ovens? We may never know; but, we do know that he valued the sanctity of human life and equality for all.

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 Louie Giglio, designated to give the benediction at this year’s presidential inauguration, has withdrawn, under apparent pressure, after the surfacing of remarks he made, some 25 years ago, about the sinfulness of homosexuality.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