Franklin Graham is one of the most vociferous homophobic evangelical ministers, he never misses an opportunity to demonize and marginalize the gay and lesbian community. He’s made dozens of anti-gay comments including this doozy: “legalization of same-sex marriage was orchestrated by Satan.
Franklin who leads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan’s Purse dispatched chaplains to Colorado Springs to provide “emotional and spiritual support” after a gunman murdered five people in a gay nightclub.
This is the epitome of hypocrisy and cynicism, that’s like an Aryan Nations’ congregation dispatching their pastor to lend support to the community where an African American church was fire bombed.
For someone who incites violence against the LGBT community pretending to engage in ministry after such a violent act does nothing but further traumatize the victims. Franklin’s brand is synonymous with misogyny, homophobia and racism, and he and his minions aren’t welcome in Colorado Springs.
Fortunately, LGBTQ ministers who embody the loving and caring spirt of Jesus Christ are on scene at the nightclub providing comfort and love.
