New Pick To Deliver Inauguration Benediction Reported
CNN reports that Rev. Luis León, pastor of St. John's Episcopal Church, located across Lafayette Park from the White House, has been chosen to deliver the benediction at President Obama's inauguration next Monday. León replaces evangelical pastor Louie Giglio who withdrew after an anti-gay sermon he preached in the 1990's surfaced. (See prior posting.) León, a naturalized citizen, was born in Cuba and came to the United States at age 11.
