BOONE, N.C. — A petition on describing evangelist Franklin Graham as a “hate preacher” for his outspoken views on Islam and gay “marriage” has been signed by more than 7,500 people.

Graham is scheduled to preach at the Lancashire Festival of Hope in Blackpool, England, in September 2018, but the online petition seeks to bar him from speaking. The Christian Post reported that the petition has been signed by politicians and some church members.

Graham told London-based Christian media company Premier that he is not coming to Great Britain to preach against Islam or gay people but that he will “talk about God” and “preach about a Savior, Jesus Christ, who can make a difference in our lives if we put our faith and trust in Him.”

In the interview posted online, Graham, the CEO and president of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said such controversy is not new for him and noted that Jesus “offended many people” and the gospel “still offends people today.”

Graham said people tried to stop his father, Billy Graham, from preaching in the U.K. too, but his father persisted and was able to win many of them over, The Christian Post reported. (TAB)

    Yeah, so what else is new? People are always offended when confronted with the truth because it bulldozes right through their comfortable, self-serving ideological house of cards, and exposes them for what they truly are: lies. In this wicked age, most would rather believe in these aforementioned lies, well, because:

    “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.”

    II Timothy 3:1-5

    No petition from a cabal of hypocritical reprobates (i.e., the “Do As We Say; Not As We Do” goon-squad) is going to stop Franklin Graham, or any other Christian worth their salt, from speaking THE TRUTH. The enemy has tried to eradicate God, Christ, the Holy Spirit, Christianity, The Church, etc. since time immemorial. They’ve never succeeded and they NEVER will. This “petition” is just another pitiful exercise in futility. You’d think they’d have figured that out by now, but then again, anyone who thinks the Graham family is filled with fundamentalist racists/bigots is probably not the sharpest Crayon in the box… nah, in my experience, they’re typically just bandwagon-ers whose brains would probably short circuit if they were actually forced to think for themselves for once in their lives. I mean, just… *KABLOOEY!* I thik you’ll find liberals and the “hive-mind mentality” are cozy bedfellows, indeed… and apparently, everyday is Opposite Day in this convoluted little world of theirs (Anything good, moral, virtuous, holy, sacred, etc. = BAD! BAD-BAD-BAD! whereas degeneracy, wickedness, revisionism, vapidity, selfishness = progressiveness, tolerance, love, intelligence, unity (none of which, when held up to *actual* liberal ideologies and not the abridged version they’re always cramming down the gaping maw of society, is even remotely true, btw.) You know — “Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain!” and all that. Hypocrites.
