I am not a letter writer. This may be the second or third letter I have ever written to the editor, but enough is enough!
Pastor Louie Giglio, Pastor of an Atlanta based church was uninvited by our President to pray at the inauguration this month. It seems that Pastor Giglio’s “sin” was preaching that any sexual experience outside of a conjugal, Biblical marriage is an act of sexual immorality. His sermon was his statement of his belief concerning homosexuality. Thus, he was told by the President to stay at home! It is now impossible for one with a Biblical view of marriage ( i.e. a man and a woman) to pray at a public event. Frankly, as someone has said: “We now have a de facto established state church.” The state can now tell Pastors what they can and cannot preach.
I don’t want to impose my faith on anyone, but I will be happy to share it with anyone. I don’t want to exclude anyone of their civil rights, but I will insist that I still have my right to free speech, at least for now, and I will express it even if I am accused of “hate speech.” Sometimes a man has to stand up and speak what he believes to keep his integrity and that I intend to do!
I think we know from this incident where we are headed as a country and it behooves every sincere Christian to pray and stand on the Word of God .
