Christian evangelist and hate-preacher Franklin Graham was scheduled to speak in Liverpool this summer as part of a longer UK tour, but that stop won’t be happening anymore. The venue where he was speaking, ACC Liverpool, announced that he would no longer be welcome. They cited Graham’s history of statements which are “incompatible with our values.”
Perhaps its because its nearly Christmas. Perhaps its because Donald Trump is being impeached, but there’s been a few talking points from the Christian internet world this week.
No. Its totally all about Donald Trump being impeached and American Evangelicals… reacting…
Christianity Today had something to say…
So. The US magazine Christianity Today, has pretty much come out and said this week that Donald Trump should go, and Christians shouldn’t support him.
Whether Mr. Trump should be removed from office by the Senate or by popular vote next election—that is a matter of prudential judgment. That he should be removed, we believe, is not a matter of partisan loyalties but loyalty to the Creator of the Ten Commandments.
It has lit Twitter on fire, and credit should be given to Christianity Today for making it clear where they stand.
To the many evangelicals who continue to support Mr. Trump in spite of his blackened moral record, we might say this: Remember who you are and whom you serve. Consider how your justification of Mr. Trump influences your witness to your Lord and Savior. Consider what an unbelieving world will say if you continue to brush off Mr. Trump’s immoral words and behavior in the cause of political expediency. If we don’t reverse course now, will anyone take anything we say about justice and righteousness with any seriousness for decades to come?
Remember Franklin Graham? The guy in charge of Samaritans Purse, featured in Donald Trumps Inauguration, and this video.
Here’s an interview where he talks about a wall needing to keep out “dangerous people” from America, that there is a business man as a president, and if Donald Trump as a sin problem. (spoiler – Franklin Graham doesn’t say yes to that).
Interestingly, the video is called hypocrisy…
Honest question. How would an IRS audit make a company feel targeted, isn’t completing audits, something the IRS does?
