Blasphemy: Obama Picks ‘Gay’ Bishop for Easter Prayer


President Barack Obama hosted about 150 Christian leaders at the Fifth Annual Easter Prayer Breakfast on Monday. At the conclusion of the event, the president chose to desecrate the Easter observance by spontaneously inviting the Episcopal Church’s first self-avowed, practicing homosexual bishop to offer the closing prayer. In his and the culture’s celebration of everything “gay,” apparently nothing is sacred.

Too bad President Obama wasn’t in as gracious of a mood towards Louie Giglio, pastor of the Passion City Church in Atlanta. Giglio had been selected by President Obama to deliver the benediction at his inaugural on Jan. 21, 2013, but he was forced to withdraw over the furor that was sparked when it was discovered he had delivered a sermon about homosexuality in the mid-1990s. The media promptly labeled the incident the Giglio Imbroglio.

The Right Rev. Gene Robinson expressed his shock in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind the podium: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!”

Speaking of his impromptu prayer, Robinson indicated that his words were “totally off the cuff! OMG!”

“The bishop, 66, retired from his New Hampshire diocese in 2013. He now spends time helping out the Washington [based] Center for American Progress on gay rights issues,” Newsmax reported.

At one time, even Bishop Robinson thought marriage should be defined only as the union of one man and one woman. But he later embraced apostasy and began an open homosexual relationship with Mark Andrew. The two made it legal in a civil “union” ceremony in 2008, followed by a “religious” service, both held in St Paul’s Church, Concord, New Hampshire. Earlier, Robinson reportedly said, “I always wanted to be a June bride.” Oh, please!

Evidently, there’s solidarity between fellow “evolvers” on this issue.

Islam, Muslims, immigration, Jihad, Sharia, and the war against our civilization, culture, and creed is a present reality. Gutless public officials are selling us short either by complicity with the enemy or due to a doctrinaire commitment to idiotic tolerance ideology. Whatever the case, citizens must stand up against the invasion now before it is to late. The author suggests that the fuse is burning and the results will end in a complete upheaval of America and every free nation, unless we act now. Forget the lame stream media. Forget Obama.
