White House Has No Comment On Anti-Gay Inaugural Pastor

At this afternoon’s White House press briefing, the Washington Blade’s Chris Johnson asked Press Secretary Jay Carney about the anti-gay sermon once given by Pastor Louie Giglio, who has been tapped to give the benediction at President Obama’s Second Inauguration. Carney had not yet seen the ThinkProgress report and directed questions to the inaugural committee. He would not address whether or not the administration was familiar with Giglio’s anti-gay views before selecting him to speak.
