I’ve Lost All Respect For Franklin Graham

Here’s why.

A US religious figure whose father advised several US presidents has backed Donald Trump’s bid for the White House. Reverend Franklin Graham also told ABC television that he doubted former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin would join the field of candidates aiming to unseat President Barack Obama. Asked whether Mr Trump might be his preferred candidate, Rev Graham told ABC’s “This Week” program: “Sure, yes.” “When I first saw that he was getting in, I thought, well, this has got to be a joke,” Rev Graham said. “But the more you listen to him, the more you say to yourself, you know, maybe this guy’s right.”

Um, no. The more you listen to him the more you realize the man is a birther lunatic who lies about his own wealth. What’s an evangelical doing supporting a liar?

    Love the blog theme! (I just wanted to say this because it’s apparent you’re copying Near Emmaus 😉 )

    They seem like a perfect match. As Thomas Jefferson said:

    “In every country and in every age, the priest has been hostile to liberty. He is always in alliance with the despot, abetting his abuses in return for protection to his own.”

    Trump is making noise to make news. He’s a publicity whore, and nothing else.

    He’s not going to run, because he’s not going to want to lose. He just likes seeing his name in the papers.

    Does anyone remember that he was flirting with running a few years ago, back when Ross Perot’s Reform Party almost counted?

    Bob,

    Do I hear a bit of anti-Catholic and clergy sentiment here?
