The Louie Imbro-Giglio – The big rhubarb is Louie Giglio withdrawing from the Inauguration Prayer of President Obama because of an “anti-gay” sermon preached in the 90’s.

I normally have a pretty reserved perspective on the relationship between the church and homosexuals, but this is a significant story that deserves attention and discussion.
Inauguration Prayers, Black History and the Homosexual Agenda – John C. Richards Jr. at Urban Faith provides another side of the coin of the Inauguration, but has some very good thoughts on how with Giglio’s exit, his dream Inaugural Prayer duo was wipe out.
