Franklin Graham claims to be an evangelical preacher. He is an avid supporter of Donald Trump. What he is not is a Christian; denying the teachings of Jesus Christ.
This son of Billy Graham is concerned about both the deportation of immigrants and their ban from entering the United States, but only if they are Christians. This Islamophobic ‘pretend-Christian’ believes that all Muslims should be removed from America.
“I understand a policy of deporting people who are here illegally and have broken the law,” Graham wrote. “I don’t know all of the details, but I would encourage our president to give great consideration to the threat to lives of Christians in countries like Iraq.”
Graham has unquestionably accepted the immoral and unconstitutional policies of Trump and his circle of sinners.
A staunch defender of Trump’s travel ban, he masked his true feelings with the following statement.
“We have to be sure that the philosophies of those entering our country are compatible with our Constitution,” he wrote in a January Facebook post. “If a person does not agree with our principles of freedom, democracy and liberty, which we cherish, they should not be allowed to come. Without question, Sharia law is not compatible.”
Notice how bigots always focus on the extremes. Graham does not mean sharia law, he is referring to the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad in the Quran.
This is more of the “Trump Effect” in America. White supremacy, Islamophobia, homophobia, anti-Semitism, and hatred are thriving under Trump’s illegitimate presidency.
Refuse to accept Trump’s encouragement of fear, anger, hatred and violence. He is not an American; he does not believe in the Constitution, or human rights. He cannot be labeled as the President of the United States.
Please re-post; thank you.
