Partial transcript of the briefing (I'm not sure who the reporter was that asked the question, but Jay Carney responds):
Q The website “ThinkProgress” is reporting that Pastor Louie Giglio, who President Obama asked to deliver his inaugural benediction, held vehemently anti-gay views in the 1990s. In a recording attributed to him from that time, Giglio advocated for a wildly discredited ex-gay therapy, references a biblical passage often attributed to require gay people to be executed, and impels Christians to firmly respond to the aggressive agenda and prevent the homosexual lifestyle from becoming adapted in society. Does the White House have a problem with Obama’s inaugural pastor holding those views?
MR. CARNEY: I haven’t seen that report. I would refer you to the Inaugural Committee. I haven’t seen the report.
Q So it’s fair to say that the administration was not aware of these
MR. CARNEY: I’m just saying that I haven’t seen the report.
Today it looks as though the good reverend has humbly withdrawn from performing the benediction at the ceremony. Good call rev, President Obama has been pretty cool with the gay folk for a while now, best not to stir the pot.

So lets call it a good day, some poor staffer didn't get fired for bringing Mr. Fire and Brimstone to the party and they can call it a lessened learned on properly vetting religious representatives of the president.
