(RNS) “First Corinthians, Chapter 6. In verses nine and 10, it talks about the things that prevent people from entering the Kingdom of God. It talks about all kinds of immoral behavior. And right in the midst of that passage, right in the middle of that verse it says “and those who are homosexual.” It’s clear.”
– Atlanta pastor Louis Giglio, in a mid-1990s sermon unearthed by ThinkProgress, preaching against homosexuality. Giglio withdrew Thursday from offering the benediction at President Obama’s inaugural cermonies.
