Why not stay home and pray instead? Leading conservative Christian Franklin Graham claims that if people don’t vote for Christians “godless secularism” wins.
On his Facebook page the evangelical leader declared:
Today is Election Day and there are some key races. Kentucky, Louisiana, and Mississippi all have gubernatorial races this year, and there are also many other important state and local elections throughout the nation. I’m thankful to live in a country where we can research the candidates, pray, and vote for who we think will do the best job.
As Christians, we should pray and cast our ballot for the candidates who most closely align with biblical principles, who are pro-life, and who support religious freedom.
If Christians are absent or silent at elections, progressives and those who stand for godless secularism—regardless of party label—will take over key leadership roles and influence our communities and our country. Don’t miss your chance to let your voice be heard. We should all pray for our nation on Election Day.
Graham acts like “godless secularism” would be a bad thing. Yet a win for “progressives and those who stand for godless secularism” would be a welcome change to the politics that elected the pussy-grabber-in-chief currently occupying the Oval Office. Indeed, the fact that an overwhelming number of evangelicals continue to support Trump is all the evidence one needs to know that these people lack common sense and human decency, and should probably refrain from voting and allow the adults to make the important decisions.
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.”
Bottom line: Preaching a message of hatred and intolerance, Franklin Graham warns Christians that If they don’t vote “progressives and those who stand for godless secularism” will win.
