"You and I have a rendezvous with destiny. We will preserve for our children this, the last best hope of man on earth, or we will sentence them to take the first step into a thousand years of darkness. If we fail, at least let our children and our children's children say of us we justified our brief moment here. We did all that could be done."

Lawrence O'Donnell's Bible Rant - Nobody including Obama believes in the Bible

Pastor Louie Giglio of Passion City Church in Atlanta was given the boot from Barack Obama's upcoming inauguration ceremony.

Think Progress uncovered an audio file of a Giglio sermon (1990's), where Giglio called homosexuality a sin and proposed conversion therapy as a remedy for homosexuality. Giglio also defined the gay rights movement as one that “is not a benevolent movement, it is a movement to seize by any means necessary the feeling and the mood of the day, to the point where the homosexual lifestyle becomes accepted as a norm in our society and is given full standing as any other lifestyle, as it relates to family.

Addie Whisenant, the spokesperson for The Presidential Inaugural Committee, issued the following statement about Pastor Giglio:

"We were not aware of Pastor Giglio’s past comments at the time of his selection and they don’t reflect our desire to celebrate the strength and diversity of our country at this Inaugural… As we now work to select someone to deliver the benediction, we will ensure their beliefs reflect this administration’s vision of inclusion and acceptance for all Americans.”

Apparently, only those who reject the same parts of the Bible that President Obama rejects, are welcome to his inauguration.
