The Disgraceful Franklin Graham And Ralph Reed

Franklin Graham is disgraceful as the supposed successor of his dad, the Reverend Billy Graham, who is now 95 years of age.

Franklin Graham is extremely anti Islamic, labeling everyone in the faith as a potential terrorist, and unwilling to work toward reconciliation with the vast number of Muslims who are NOT terrorists, millions of them living in the United States, and facing discrimination that is undeserved.

Additionally, Franklin Graham is extremely anti gay, and applauds Russian leader Vladamir Putin on his nation’s anti gay legislation, failing to understand that gays are being threatened and victimized in ways similar to what happened to them in Nazi Germany. He has absolutely no tolerance or willingness to give gays and lesbians the equal rights in law and social treatment that all Americans are supposed to be guaranteed under the Bill of Rights!

It was good to see ABC News journalist Cokie Roberts challenge Graham on THIS WEEK this past Sunday, and she also did a service by exposing the hypocrisy of Ralph Reed, formerly of the Christian Coalition of Pat Robertson, and now of the Faith And Freedom Coalition, who claimed that gays are not fit to be parents, and that they harm children by adoption, when there is absolutely no such evidence. Reed is a nasty man, a person of doubtful ethical character himself, having engaged in political finance scandals, and demonstrating very right wing views tinged with religious hypocrisy toward women, as well as gays and lesbians.

Graham and Reed are two religious activists worthy of condemnation by those who believe in fairness and justice!

    Except for one discretion that was caught on Nixon’s pre-Watergate tape archives, which he profusely apologized and asked for forgiveness, Billy Graham was more about inclusiveness.

    Say what you will about the message he was trying to convey, but
    Graham the father was never caught in any scandal in 60 years of evangelizing.

    His son, on the other hand, is exclusive and polarizing. He has, to his credit, actually assisted some third world countries when disaster hits.

    Nevertheless ,with the millions that his followers contribute, the question is whether it is just a pithy amount to justify when compared to the work the Catholic Church does in helping the truly destitute of the world.

    For all of the faults one can find in the Catholic Church, it does a lot of good, and has a compassionate heart as an institution in so many ways, more than those in the right wing evangelical community who constantly criticize the church.

    I never will ever understand humans obsession with doomsday. I think that’s morbid.

    For those obsessed with doomsday, I always say:
    “Lighten up. It’s not the end of the world” ; )
