I struggle a lot, always trying to be respectful of our President for my children's sake. I totally sugar coat my concerns with his Presidency in their presence. I tell them this is America and I have the right and duty to disagree with the President as needed be. Much of the time I feel like I will be taken advantage for being 'too nice', and not as mean. I would get that a lot when I worked as a lawyer, for being 'too nice'. Maybe I don't want to give my children nightmares either and let them know how things have really fallen apart for our country.
So Evangelical Pastor Louie Giglio of Atlanta Georgia, raises 3.3 millions dollars to combat human trafficking. Impressive and respectably would make the right choice to give the Benediction for the second inauguration of President Obama. Wait... he like the guy from Chik-fil-a believes in the Biblical form of marriage. Giglio even in the past has spoken on homosexual acts as sinful, just like other sexual sins. The answer in his sermon wasn't hate, but change.
So be it, the Pastor withdraws.
Due to a message of mine that has surfaced from 15-20 years ago, it is likely that my participation, and the prayer I would offer, will be dwarfed by those seeking to make their agenda the focal point of the inauguration. (my emphasis)Clearly, speaking on this issue has not been in the range of my priorities in the past fifteen years. Instead, my aim has been to call people to ultimate significance as we make much of Jesus Christ.
