Franklin Graham: Off With Our Heads!

In their relentless desire to compare themselves to Jesus and pretend to be martyrs, Christians continue to declare that, one day soon, they’re going to be hunted down and killed. This time it’s Billy Graham’s idiot son, Franklin, speaking to the Watchmen at the Walls conference.

“Are we going to be cowards because we’re afraid?,” Graham asked the crowd. “Could we get our heads chopped off? We could, maybe one day. So what? Chop it off!”

Graham went on to assert that he loves gays “enough to care to warn them that if they want to continue living like this, it’s the flames of hell for you” and he will continue to do so because he will one day have to answer to God and does not want to be found to have been a coward who refused to preach God’s laws.

I’ve got news for you, Franklin: No one gives a shit what you believe or preach. You can preach against gay people until you’re blue in the face. You just can’t write discrimination into the law.

    I have a nice sharp sword handy. I Franklin’s volunteering, he can sign a waiver and I’ll do the job for him, no charge. The blessed silence afterwards, when nobody will have to hear him whining and lying his ass off will be worth it.

    Graham went on to assert that he loves gays “enough to care to warn them that if they want to continue living like this, it’s the flames of hell for you”

    …but not enough to refuse to worship a deity who will (according to their beliefs) send the gays to those flames of hell.

    Not very principled, are ya Franklin?

  • moarscienceplz

    I can’t imagine anybody trying to decapitate him. It would make absolutely no difference to the quality of his arguments, and it’s messy, so why bother?

    Are we going to be cowards because we’re afraid?,

    No, you’re going to be [called] cowards because you’re insecure about having someone live next to you whose lifestyle you disagree with.

  • dugglebogey

    You may warn them about your fantasy afterlife scenarios all you like, just stop passing laws that discriminate against them.

    There, win-win.

    Franklin Graham allegedly once tried to talk former Israeli Prime Minister Sharon into razing the Dome of the Rock Mosque and replacing it with the 3rd Temple. Of course, this would have started a religious war between Muslims and Christians which apparently troubled the good reverend not at all.

    While I agree that he’s ridiculous, what worries me are the people who don’t think he’s ridiculous. As the martyrdom rhetoric increases, will we see more easily-led fools actively trying for it? Will innocent people die because some moron decides to show his true dedication to Jeebus?

    Look at it this way, now his father doesn’t seem quite as bad.

    Frankie is scared that when he’s in the minority others will do to him what Christians did for centuries to others, punish and execute people who don’t believe what you do.

    Of course not. It would bring about the end times.

    He claims to love homosexuals but has no problem believing they burn in hell forever. I call bullshit. I bet Franklin would be the first one to get an erection if he saw two girls having sex.

  • imthegenieicandoanything

    Well, he and those like him would be a lot quieter if their heads were cut off.

    And they wouldn’t be any dumber. Maybe less.

    They’ll have to do it themselves, just like they have to nail themselves on their silly crosses. I actually HAVE a life.

    Could we get our heads chopped off? We could, maybe one day. So what? Chop it off!

    I have to agree with you, Frank … it would be no great loss!

    Fool would rather be beheaded than be (accurately) called homophobic?

    Wow.

    That’s one messed up set of priorities you got ya self there Franklin!

  • dingojack

    Beheaded?* Nah sorry Franklyn that’s reserved for the nobility, it’s draw hanging for you, peon!**

    ** Bushrat posted: “Frankie is scared that when he’s in the minority others will do to him what Christians did for centuries to others, punish and execute people who don’t believe what you do.”

    In that case not hanging or beheading, but burning at the stake (or perhaps, breaking on a wheel) that would be the appropriate punishment. I’m sure Cranky Frankie would approve, right?
