Scott Lively 'not real pleased with' Pastor Giglio

by Jeremy Hooper

One of the most proudly anti-gay people in the world, Scott Lively, says onetime inaugural preacher should have run headfirst into the controversy regarding his anti-gay comments. Because, ya know—this is "the moral issue of the Endtimes" and all:


[Janet Meffed Show, 1/11/13]

Right, Scott. Because what, if the Pastor stood up and was all like, "Yup, gays are terrible," those of us who have strong support for the pro-equality President Obama would have just been all like, "Well at least that's clear" and moved on with our days? Um, no!

My belief is that Pastor Giglio likely was unwilling to roll back his comments (at least in full), and that's why he had to pull out. The only way for him to stay in the role was to issue a sincere apology, and he seemingly did not want to do that. This administration was never going to be able to move forward with the situation as it laid because this administration has aligned itself with moving the ball forward for LGBT people. Sure, in Scott Lively's dystopian vision of a pro-discrimination America, running headfirst into anti-gayness is advantageous. But that's not our world. That's not the vision the American electorate chose to support.
