Mother Jones on Franklin Graham:
Yeah, I know that this is basically the plot of every story in the Old Testament. But could you cut to the chase like Rev. Jeremiah Wright and just say “Goddamn America!”
As Graham denounced the Obama years, Newsmax’s Kathleen Walter asked, “So we’ve become too secular a nation? How do we bring God back into government?” Graham replied:
Maybe God will have to bring our nation down to our knees—to where you just have a complete economic collapse. And maybe at that point, maybe people will again begin to call upon the name of almighty God.
Of course, Wright was concerned about 300 years of racial oppression, genocide and other injustices, while Graham is worried about icky gay people getting married. So clearly Wright is a dangerous influence while Graham is a respected statesman.
