    For a country which claims to have separation of church and state, I find the notion of a national day of prayer hypocritical especially in a government facility and worse, having a ‘pastor’ officiate who believes our orientation is a chosen lifestyle, unlike his religious beliefs that are chosen and mutable.

    The hypocrisy of these people is astounding. What a screwed up society America has become. Not all Americans subscribe to the abrahamic cults and I would think many would be offended by the arrogance of these god bothering religious addicts.

    We’re always accused of shoving our sexuality down their throats, but when it comes to religion, they have a free pass. Woe betide anyone who slags them off.

  2. Maybe next year there avecsomeone from they KKK

  3. It is not good public relations to pressure
    the US government to dis-invite a prominent preacher because of his religious beliefs against marriage equality and gay relationships in general.

    In order to win’s people’s hearts and minds, one must choose one’s battles wisely.

    Bigots of ANY sort do not need to lead anyone in ‘prayer’! They are unfit based upon their evil bigotry and hatred. Scum!

  5. He and his church are not only against marriage equality, they’re (surprise, surprise) vehemently opposed to homosexuality: “We believe that homosexuality is a result of sin’s widespread effects on the world. Homosexuality is a sin of behavior; therefore, people are not born into a homosexual or a lesbian lifestyle. We believe that the redemption for this sin, as for all sin, is only possible through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.”
