Tony Perkins and the FRC Upset Over Anti-Gay Pastor Giglio’s Removal From Obama’s Inauguration

Tony Perkins and his ever bitching anti-gay right-wing extremist hate group the Family Research Council is ever so pissed that exposed anti-gay “Pastor” Louis Giglio has been removed/dropped out from delivering the benediction prayer at President Obama’s upcoming send term inauguration.

“The President’s endorsement of same-sex ‘marriage’ wasn’t the culmination of the homosexual agenda–in many ways, it was just the beginning of a sweeping zero tolerance policy for any American with a biblical view of sexuality. The country is witnessing that for itself in the breaking news that the President’s inauguration no longer includes Pastor Louie Giglio, an evangelical minister who, years ago, delivered a sermon on the Christian response to homosexuality. Gay activists brought the comments to the President’s attention and demanded his removal from the ceremony. Although it’s unclear whether the White House forced him to withdraw or not, Pastor Giglio formally dropped out less than 24 hours later. In a press release, he insists that his participation and prayer ‘would be dwarfed by those seeking to make their agenda the focal point of the inauguration.

“What a difference four years makes! In 2009, when the Left was in an uproar about Pastor Rick Warren’s prayer, the President was quick to come to his defense. ‘We have to disagree without being disagreeable and then focus on those things we hold in common as Americans.’ Now, having revealed his true position on same-sex ‘marriage,’ the President seems determined to create even more division. If anything, this pulls back the curtain on the Left’s real agenda. And it’s not about tolerance. It’s about forced acceptance. Americans need to wake up and realize that the homosexual movement cannot be appeased–not by marriage, not by special benefits, not by anything but the sanitization of Christianity from the public square.” – Hate group and white supremacist leader Tony Perkins, via press release.


“A sweeping zero tolerance policy for any American with a biblical view of sexuality.”

Works for me.

And by the way Tony, mind your own fucking business.
