Could Dr. King Have Given the Inaugural Benediction?

The biggest reason King would be unwelcome is because he was pro-life and believed in the sacredness of human life.

...actually, as a Republican, it's hard to imagine Dr. King would have been welcome at a Democrat's coronation...

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 Louie Giglio, designated to give the benediction at this year’s presidential inauguration, has withdrawn, under apparent pressure, after the surfacing of remarks he made, some 25 years ago, about the sinfulness of homosexuality.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