I love Louie Giglio. He is one of the most encouraging pastors I have ever had the pleasure of hearing speak. I know that he has a huge heart. So, it hurts to read so many news outlets painting a portrait of him that is akin to Fred Phelps from Westboro Baptist Church.
For those who are not aware of the situation, Louie Giglio was scheduled to give the inauguration prayer for President Obama when he takes office again. A liberal biased organization dug up a 20 year old sermon Pastor Giglio gave on homosexuality and cried foul rather loudly to the administration. Louie released a statement backing out of the prayer, which you can read at the link to his blog below.
With Passion Conferences, Louie has rallied Christians around the world with common goals: to provide for the poor, to work towards social justice, to provide clean water for Africa, and of course to spread the good news that Jesus Christ died for the sin of the world. He does this all because he loves God, and he loves people.
If you have read the news, please look Giglio up through youtube, visit his passioncitychurch blog, and develop your own informed opinion about him.
