The Rev. Luis Leon will deliver the benediction at President Barack Obama's second inauguration.

Pastor Louie Giglio, of the Georgia-based Passion City Church, had been selected to deliver the inaugural benediction but withdrew after reports surfaced that in the mid-1990s he advocated for therapies which claim to “cure” gay people's sexual orientation and called on Christians to prevent the “homosexual lifestyle” from becoming accepted in society.

According to The Huffington Post, Leon, an Episcopal priest who ministers at St. John's Church near the White House, will replace Giglio.

“I'll be doing it,” Leon confirmed to The Huffington Post.

The Presidential Inaugural Committee is expected to make an official announcement on Friday.

Leon, whose parish is known for welcoming LGBT members, gave the invocation at President George W. Bush's 2005 inaugural. Every president since James Madison has attended services at St. John's Church.
