Evangelist Franklin Graham Falsely Claims Progressives Don’t Believe In God
Evangelist Franklin Graham advised Christians how to vote on his Facebook page even though he has claimed many times in the past that he does not tell people how to vote.
Graham — whose ministry does not pay taxes due to a government tax break (a form of socialism) — demonized progressives as being socialists, atheists and opposing Godly principles:
All elections are important. Midterms are coming up, but important elections are happening across the country at other times as well.
As Christians we need to pray and we need to vote, even in off-year elections. Christians should be aware of candidates who call themselves progressive.
Progressive is generally just a code word for someone who leans toward socialism, a person who does not believe in God, and someone who will likely vote against Godly principles that are so important to our nation.
Do your research and vote for Christians when possible, or at least select candidates who would be supportive of Christian positions. The people of Wisconsin just lost one of their state Supreme Court Judge seats to a progressive.
In my opinion, if Christians had come out to vote, this very key seat would not have been lost. It should be a warning to us. This is not the time to withdraw and be silent—this is the time to make positive change for our children and grandchildren.
Graham also falsely implied that being politically active was what Jesus advocated in the Bible:
Remember, Jesus said, “You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste … It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people’s feet” (Matthew 5:13).
