Louie Giglio forced out of Presidential inauguration

Louie Giglio has been forced out of the Presidential inauguration because of an old sermon that took a traditional position on gay rights Giglio outed. Giglio did not retract this.

The sermon had warned against gay rights because he saw it as "...a movement to seize by any means necessary the feeling and the mood of the day, to the point where the homosexual lifestyle becomes accepted as a norm in our society.” With some irony Wayne Besen, who is the founder of Truth Wins Out, responded to Giglio, saying that “It would be a shame to select a preacher with backward views on L.G.B.T. people at a moment when the nation is rapidly moving forward on our issues.”

Besen has rather proved Giglio's point, but is this really what liberal gay rights is all about, to force through one view and silence dissent through direct discrimination?
