Granted, we all know that Franklin Graham is a right-wing nutjob lugnut who will pretty much say anything in an effort to get attention and so he can make his endless appeals for money from gullible souls who think his perverted version of Christianity is what God wants them to believe. But this time, the guy has completely jumped the shark.
Graham is now calling for Christians to die for the cause of fighting transgender equality in America. Yes, you read that right: This lunatic says people should be willing to lay down their lives for a cause that is doomed to fail.
On Facebook, Graham posted a long message which says in part:
“What would you take a bullet for? What are the principles and beliefs that you would not compromise under any circumstances? Even if it meant putting your life on the line?
“King Nebuchadnezzar who reigned over Babylon issued a decree that everyone worship the golden image he had made. Three men who knew the one true and living God, refused to worship the king’s idol—their names were Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. The king told them, ‘But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.'”
But this jerkweed was just getting warmed up, and he also wrote:
“I want to call on every Christian and every pastor to stand firm like these patriarchs of old and not bow to the secular, increasingly godless culture in which we live—even when (not if) we’re criticized, mocked, and labeled intolerant. The God of the Old Testament that delivered Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from their fiery execution is the same God today—and He is still more than able to save. Will you stand against ungodliness? What are you willing to take a bullet for?”
What are you willing to die for? This is Graham’s question. Sounds oddly like what terrorists are asked before they are sent on a suicide mission. And yet Graham condemns such practices as barbaric. He condemns that, but then wants his brainwashed followers to follow his words to their graves.
I’m not sure there’s a hell hot enough for a scumbag like Franklin Graham.
