Franklin Graham Defends Trump By Claiming Liars Make Jesus Sad

Franklin Graham Defends Trump By Claiming Liars Make Jesus Sad November 13, 2019

Irony alert: In an ill conceived attempt to defend President Trump, leading conservative Christian Franklin Graham cites a Bible passage condemning liars.

Graham, who often appears to worship Trump as a deity, and often claims that “godless secularism” is a threat to the nation, issued an angry rant via Facebook attempting to defend Trump before the first public hearings in the Trump impeachment inquiry. 

On his Facebook page Graham declared:

Long-time journalist Bill Moyers said Sunday that for the first time in his life, he fears for the nation’s survival. Why? “Society, a democracy, can die of too many lies…” I agree with him 100% on that—we just don’t agree on the source of the problem. For two years day after day, night after night, we heard Russian collusion—lie after lie, pushed by the liberal media. Then it was Ukraine and the whistleblower. Bill Moyers shares in the interview that his “hope” is that as citizens watch the impeachment hearings (which are totally partisan), they will “begin to doubt” in President Donald J. Trump so there can be a shift that would sway the 2020 election. It’s all about politics and winning the election, they don’t care about anything else. They are scared to death of conservative values and threatened because President Trump can’t be pushed around and intimidated politically or personally. The lies of the progressive left and the hyper-liberal media are what is a serious threat to the future of our nation. The Bible tells us, “The Lord detests lying lips…” (Proverbs 12:22).

For Graham to defend Trump by noting that “The Lord detests lying lips…” is the height of hypocrisy, and irony. For if one thing is certain, it is that Donald Trump is a liar. Indeed, Trump lies about everything, all the time. The Washington Post reports:

As President Trump approaches his 1,000th day in office Wednesday, he has significantly stepped up his pace of spouting exaggerated numbers, unwarranted boasts and outright falsehoods. As of Oct. 9, his 993rd day in office, he had made 13,435 false or misleading claims…

As for Graham, he is a deplorable Christian extremist who frequently preaches a message of hatred and intolerance for gays and others he finds offensive. Recently Graham made headlines by warning gay presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg that he must repent or face eternal damnation for “flaunting his homosexuality.”

Graham, who is fond of claiming that God kills gays, issued a series of tweets attacking the Democratic presidential candidate earlier this year. And while Graham exhibits an irrational biblical hatred for gays and Democrats, he frequently grovels at the feet of that supposed paragon of Christian virtue, Donald Trump.

Bottom line: Leading conservative Christian Franklin Graham cites a Bible passage condemning liars in an ill conceived attempt to defend the Liar-in-Chief, President Donald Trump.
