“One of the country’s most well-known evangelical Christians, Franklin Graham, said Pete Buttigieg, an openly gay 2020 presidential candidate, should repent. Graham called homosexuality a ‘sin’ and ‘something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized,’ in a tweet Wednesday. ‘Mayor Buttigieg says he’s a gay Christian. As a Christian I believe the Bible which defines homosexuality as sin, something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized. The Bible says marriage is between a man & a woman—not two men, not two women,’ Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelical Association, tweeted.”

Jesus Christ had volumes to say about the sins of pride, self-righteousness, greed and envy, but he didn’t have a single word to say about homosexuality.
The Old Testament prohibits many behaviors including wearing clothing made from mixed fabrics, letting your hair become unkempt, sleeping with another man’s slave ( I guess it’s kosher to sleep with your own slaves), getting tattoos, trimming your beard (lots of heathen millennials walking around), and men having sex with men and women having sex with women.
“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.”
I don’t lose any sleep over my neighbors having unkempt hair, tattoos, or neatly trimmed beards, and I don’t give a rat’s as if they sleep with same sex partners. My duty as a Christian is to mind my own business, worry about the beam that’s in my eye, and show them the love of Christ.
The hypocrisy of Franklin Graham knows no bounds, he praises Donald Trump, who openly and brazenly flaunts the seven deadly sins, but goes ballistic over Pete Buttigieg because he’s a proud gay man.
Mayor Pete is a practicing Episcopalian who’s imbued with the Spirit of Christ, and his policies of universal health care, respect for immigrants, and support for welfare programs embody the teachings of Christ. Trump, on the other hand is the antitheses of everything Jesus taught.
Memo to Franklin Graham: A prophet should speak truth to power, you should be condemning Trump for demonizing immigrants, sexually assaulting women, marginalizing minorities and lying his fool head off.
If Graham makes it to heaven, by the skin of his teeth, he may discover that there’ a rainbow flag next to the throne of God. Read More: https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/nation-world/national/article229629454.html
