“You would think itd be incredibly easy for an evangelical Christian leader to denounce Donald Trump`s alleged affair with porn star Stormy Daniels, which reportedly took place months after giving birth to his fifth child with his third wife. Yet Franklin Graham, appearing yesterday on MSNBC with anchor Alex Witt, had no words of condemnation for his Republican savior.
Graham initially suggested the entire story was fake since Trump hadn`t admitted it – but added that it wouldn`t matter even if it were true because Trump isn`t `President Perfect.`”
During the 2016 presidential campaign Donald Trump famously claimed he could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and not lose any voters.
I would argue that Trump could rape a 13-year-old girl in the middle of Fifth Avenue and not lose any support from evangelicals. Evangelicals would claim that the little harlot tempted him, and that he repented anyway immediately after closing his zipper.
If Stormy Daniels produced a blue dress with a semen stain that was verified to be Trump`s DNA, evangelicals would claim that the stain was in the shape of a cross, and evidence that God`s blessing was upon him.
Franklin Graham has been one of the most diehard Trump supporters, time after time again he has justified the president`s sins and transgressions. I`m not surprised that he has failed to condemn Trump for having an affair with a porn star, and paying her money to keep quiet.
The Rev. Graham had the audacity on Sunday to declare that President Trump defends Christianity more than any recent American leader.
With all due respect the good reverend is full of crap, Trump`s policies, behavior and words are antithetical to Christianity. Trump has defiled the Christian faith more than any recent American leader.
Trump and his evangelical enablers are destroying democracy and Christianity, and the president and his white evangelical supports should be anathema to true Christians, and true patriots.
