Update: Pastor Backs Out of Obama Inauguration Over Previous "Antigay" Comments

 

An update on the story we just reported:

Rev.  Louie Giglio, who had been announced as the pastor to give the invocation at the presidential inauguration, has now pulled himself out of the ceremony, after criticism of his previous anti-gay comments and actions, sources confirmed to ABC News.

Giglio, who is now Pastor at Passion City Church in Georgia and his role at Obama’s second inauguration was first announced Tuesday. But the liberal website Thinkprogress reported Wednesday on video of Giglioi  delivering a sermon in the mid-1990s in which he said homosexuality is a sin and advocated gay “recovery.” (ABCNews The Note)
