Franklin Graham Threatens God’s Wrath for Trump Critics

Franklin Graham Threatens God’s Wrath for Trump Critics July 26, 2018

Like so many of his fellow Christian right leaders, Franklin Graham has sold his soul completely for Donald Trump. He is all-in, no matter what actions he has to now defend that he once condemned. On Twitter yesterday, he threatened the wrath of God for those who speak out with disapproval about Trump paying off multiple mistresses to buy their silence.

Was this a warning to yourself, Franky? Because let’s look at your own words in a Wall Street Journal op-ed 20 years ago at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal. You said:

Last week Mr. Clinton told 70 million Americans that his adulterous actions with Ms. Lewinsky were a “private” matter “between me, the two people I love the most–my wife and our daughter–and our God.”

But the God of the Bible says that what one does in private does matter. Mr. Clinton’s months-long extramarital sexual behavior in the Oval Office now concerns him and the rest of the world, not just his immediate family. If he will lie to or mislead his wife and daughter, those with whom he is most intimate, what will prevent him from doing the same to the American public

So which of your words do you think God will judge most harshly? In both cases, you claimed to be speaking for him, yet you took the exact opposite positions. Gee, I wonder why that is? What is horrible, contemptible behavior by a Democrat is not only acceptable for a Republican, criticizing that Republican is so terrible that God will punish them for it. If there is a god, buddy, you are in deep doo doo. I suspect he would take your rank hypocrisy far more seriously than someone who took either position consistently.
