Franklin Graham rails against Buttigieg for calling himself 'gay Christian'

Evangelist Franklin Graham, an outspoken supporter of President Trump, on Wednesday slammed 2020 presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg for calling himself a “gay christian,” saying that the Bible defines homosexuality as something to be repentant of.

“Buttigieg is right—God doesn’t have a political party,” Graham tweeted. “But God does have commandments, laws & standards He gives us to live by. God doesn’t change. His Word is the same yesterday, today & forever.”

Graham, the son of legendary preacher Billy Graham, added in a separate tweet that “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 said, before saying in a final tweet that “the core of the Christian faith is believing and following Jesus Christ, who God sent to be the Savior of the world—to save us from sin, to save us from hell, to save us from eternal damnation.”

    It’s fine that Rev. Graham has spoken out against Mayor Buttigieg. But I agree with those who say Rev. Graham should also be admonishing Trump for his many sins too. None of us is perfect — only God. But there seems to be a bias when a pastor admonishes one sinner, but overlooks the sins of another.

    I don’t know what counsel, if any, Rev. Graham has given Trump. Maybe there has been some discussion about the cheating, lying and what not. But it does bother me that so many pastors have given Trump a pass and in some cases, treat him like the Second Coming of Jesus. They have thrown over the real God for an idol. I hope Rev. Graham is not one of them.
