Louie Giglio is hardly a fundamentalist firebrand. But in the brave new world of Obama’s progressive secularism, little distinction is made between Giglio and Fred Phelps. Anyone (and according to Lifeway research, that is 44% of Americans) who believes homosexuality is a sin is unwelcome in the public square. One who holds to the biblical truth about this subject will not be eligible for appointed office or elected to significant places of service.
I mentioned this in a post last week, that we are going to have to get used to being a minority, and increasingly, I believe, an excluded and perhaps eventually persecuted (Bullied? Oppressed?) minority.
It should not surprise us. I don’t have time to write extensively on this, but you can look at our blog roll and see articles by better men than I that deal with this.
Here are links to some good articles you can read about Louie Giglio’s exclusion from Obama’s inauguration because of comments he made 15 years ago about homosexuality.
- Ed Stetzer The Louie Giglio Moment: Are Evangelicals (and about 4 in 10 American Adults) No Longer Welcome in the Public Square?
- Denny Burk “Louie Giglio dropped from the inaugural program“
- Russell Moore “Louie Giglio and the New State Church”
- Mark Lamprecht “Sadly, Louie Giglio Withdraws from President Obama’s Inauguration“
