“We, as a nation, we’ve turned our back on God. We have just left Him behind, basically. We support abortion, same-sex marriage – these are things that are against God’s standards and God’s laws.
And, we celebrate sin. Instead of being ashamed of sin, we’re celebrating sin. Our politicians are celebrating sin.”
Franklin Graham has his panties in a twist because in his opinion America has turned her back on God and His standards. His God being the Jehovah of the Bible, and God’s standards being white evangelicals’ interpretation of Scripture which is synonymous with White Christian Nationalism.
What are America’s sins that trouble Graham’s soul? Our indifference for the poor, homeless, immigrants and other marginalized communities? Our fascination with guns and lust for violence? Our neglect of the mentally ill?
What really upsets the evangelical blowhard is a woman having autonomy over her own body, he would prefer a woman to be pregnant, barefoot, and trusting a man to know what is best for her.
What really infuriates him is same-sex marriage, he can’t bear the thought of gays and lesbians enjoying the rights of all of God’s children.
If you interpret the Bible or any other holy book to mean that God condemns sex outside of marriage, same-sex love, masturbation and abortion, then don’t engage in any of those activities, and don’t worry what anybody else is doing or not doing. One person’s sin is another person’s pursuit of happiness and fulfillment.
