Franklin Graham

Franklin Graham is always pissed off. Franklin Graham will never be known for his sense of perspective. Apparently he has determined (like many of his ilk) that same-sex marriage is the end of the world. Speaking of the Supreme Court and the marriage cases:

The impending decision will rank as the most historic and far-reaching
judgment of the 21st century. If our nation’s highest court decrees
same-sex marriage as the law of the land, the consequences will be great.

So nothing more momentous might occur over the next 85 years? The “consequences” are simply that some gay folks will get hitched and their kids, if they are raising any, will be more emotionally and financially secure because of it. 98% of marriages will still be “tradition.” Seriously now, what is the big fucking deal?

It sets the stage for persecution of believers committed to living by the truth of God’s Holy Word. Join me in praying for each of the justices: Chief Justice John G. Roberts and Justices Elena Kagan, Samuel A. Alito, Jr., Antonin Scalia, Anthony Kennedy, Clarence Thomas, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer, and Sonia Sotomayor.

Persecution? These folks have been oppressing their fellow LGBT citizens for decades. They have fought to deny us basic civil rights and dignity. They still fight for the right to deny us service in public accommodations and the right to discriminate against us in the workplace. Yet they have the temerity to claim non-existent persecution of them.

I guess that persecution sells. These folks inhale persecution (mostly imagined) and exhale scripture — with their hands out. Imagined persecution that is manufactured to suit the cause pays for Graham’s designer suits.
