    Sign our petition supporting Rev. Franklin Graham

    This character assassination by David French is unconscionable and should not go unchallenged.
    Last week, Rev. Franklin Graham came under fire for his support of President Donald Trump.


    National Review writer David French has wrongly accused Franklin Graham of having a double standard by not being openly critical of President Trump's past while being public in his criticism of other politicians.


    French cites Graham's criticism of the moral failings of former President Bill Clinton and Presidential contender and South Bend, Indiana, mayor Pete Buttigie. In his biased brand of yellow journalism, French unjustly contends that by not holding President Trump to the same moral standard, Graham has lost his influence as an evangelical witness.


    Certainly, no one would agree that President Trump's past is a perfect model of morality, but French has attacked and mischaracterized Mr. Graham's integrity by unjustly comparing apples to oranges. Since our current president has taken the oath of public office, he has come nowhere near the glaring moral indecencies of Clinton while he served in office. Buttigieg is an open homosexual who claims God made him "gay" and is a better Christian because of it.


    Graham is unquestionably a godly man of impeccable integrity. His decades of faithfulness to the gospel and the Great Commission are what make him one of America’s most beloved men.


    This character assassination by David French is unconscionable and should not go unchallenged.


    I urge you to stand with us in showing our appreciation and love for Franklin Graham by signing our petition to this great man of God.

    I've never heard Graham hold Trump up to being anything other than a fellow Christian, and trying his best to do what he can to unite the country and get it on the right track again. We all know he has some shady past areas to his life, BUT.....who of us hasn't? Many of the people who followed Christ during his human days were CLEARLY not people you'd hold up to the light as an example to your children. BUT, they say the "light" and tried to change their lives as a result. That's about all you can ask of anybody.

    I'm not convinced that Trump is a Christian believer, not that my opinion maters or that I'd mind being incorrect. Trump-haters want to pillory Trump for his past, which was real. I haven't followed Graham's comments (I suspect French is incorrect), but on the personal and spiritual side of things I think Graham (and other Evangelical leaders) are more interested in influencing Trump toward Christ than in dumping on him. What a strange idea!

    BTW, I think Creepy Porn Liar is lying about what she claimed happened in 2006, but even stipulating that for the sake of discussion, Trump seems to have changed his ways the past 12 or 13 years. Trump-haters may not be swallowing a camel in regard to this, but they are trying to divert attention from a rather long time period.

    I don't even know who the fuck David French is.

    Why would I give a damn what he has to say about other people and, other people's religion?

    Just another self-proclaimed "Expert" on Christian Theology, and, the asshole probably doesn't even believe in Christ.
