I see that the reverend has changed his mind 'for now.'

Once again a member of the religious right gets millions of dollars of free publicity by being outrageous. (Remember the guy who got all the free publicity by saying that SpongeBob Squarepants is a homosexual?)

Do you suppose journalists understand they are being manipulated and just go along with it to increase circulation? Or are they merely naive?

One thing is for sure - nobody doing something noble or intelligent would get all this free publicity.
