Earlier this month, the antigay Evangelist preacher, Franklin Graham announced he was closing all his Wells Fargo bank accounts after learning the company was pro-gay. He then moved his coffers into the vaults of North Carolina-based BB&T, only to learn that it was pro-gay too. Graham is now also going to have to give up drinking Coke products, eating Ben & Jerry’s, flying Delta, watching Netflix, shopping at Sears, or using Tide detergent since all of those companies vocally supported the SCOTUS’ ruling on marriage equality last week.
Now, the late Billy Graham’s elder (dumb ass) son is really foaming at the mouth. Last week when The White House put a rainbow filter over its Facebook picture after SCOTUS’ historic ruling, Graham went apeshit. He called the picture “outrageous,” saying it was;
“a real slap in the face of the millions of Americans who do not support same-sex marriage and whose voice is being ignored.
God is the one who gave the rainbow, and it was associated with His judgement. God sent a flood to wipe out the entire world because mankind had become so wicked and violent.
One day God is going to judge sin. All sin. Only those who are found righteous will be able to escape His judgement.”
The post now has over 340,000 “likes,” 140,000 “shares,” and 46,000+ comments. I usually hate to read the comments of any post but these are real eye-openers. Vickie Lockhart wrote, SCREAMING IN ALL CAPS:
“WITH THE CURRENT GENERATION UNABLE TO COLLECTIVELY FIGURE OUT HOW TO PROPERLY OPERATE UNDERWEAR… AND NOW WANTING TO PUT THEIR PRIVATES IN A HOLE ONLY POOPOO COMES OUT OF AND THEN LICK IT OFF… ASK YOUR DAD IF PERHAPS SOMEHOW WE HAVE FAILING AS PARENTS IN AMERICA.”
Stephanie Torres said;
“My problem here is not with gays…in fact, I have several very close friends who are! My problem however is with the president taking it upon himself to DISRESPECT those who are not in agreement with this decision! … Asinine jerk!”
And Tina Henry had a sad face;
“The Lord must be sobbing for this earth. hate the sin love the sinners. All have sinned. Im sorry this world is so screwed up Lord.”
Finally Kayla Waterman, who one supposes considers herself a “Christian” wrote simply;
“Gays are disgusting!”
Well, say what you will about these folk’s opinions… me? I’m not one for quoting the bible, but I do remember from going to bible study one bit of the New Testament about judging others but, I think gay icon Dolly Parton really said it best last year;
“[My gay fans] know that I completely love and accept them, as I do all people. I’ve struggled in my life to be appreciated and understood. I’ve had to go against all kinds of people through the years just to be myself. I think everybody should be allowed to be who they are, and to love who they love. I don’t think we should be judgmental. Lord, I’ve got enough problems of my own to pass judgment on somebody else. But as far as the Christians, if people want to pass judgment, they’re already sinning. The sin of judging is just as bad as any other sin they might say somebody else is committing. I try to love everybody.”
Can I get an Amen up in here!?
