Yesterday we found a wonderful interview with Todd Starnes and Franklin Graham about the growing trend in America of mandating LGBTQ inclusive lessons in all school subjects. The interview ended with Graham offering some insightful comments also about the various Christian celebrities who have recently publicly left the Church.
We tried to find the video on YouTube to share and found that it had been removed because it violated YouTube community standards. You can watch an excerpt below though. Where did we find it? Right Wing Watch, an arm of People for the American Way, which is a self-described communist organization.
If you want to read a transcript of the interview, or watch the full interview, it is available at ToddStarnes.com. Use this link: https://www.toddstarnes.com/values/franklin-graham-parents-should-pull-kids-from-schools-where-lgbt-lessons-are-mandatory/
Here is some of the comments Franklin Graham made that are offensive to YouTube:
You know God made us and created us. He made us male and female so that we could carry on the population – that we have children and that we would increase. And homosexuality goes against God’s plan for for the human race. And so the mayor is correct.
I’m not against gay people. I’m not fighting them or anything like that. So if you’re gay and you’re listening I want you know that I do care about you and I love you. But at the same time I love you enough to tell you the truth that homosexuality is a sin against God. I’m not your judge. God is but you will have to stand before him one day and give an account for how you have lived your life. All of us do. And I just want to warn you that God is going to judge all sin but he’s willing to forgive sin if we’re willing to repent and that means to turn from our sin and by faith believe on his son Jesus Christ who came to this earth to take our sins and die on the cross and shed his blood for each and every one of us.
And so the mayor is right. I take my hat off to him. We need pastors to speak out and we need them to in New Jersey and these states where this legislation is being passed. Pastors need to speak out. And if you don’t take the lead and I’m thinking especially about African-American pastors they need to. They need to come out and speak against this. And if they do you may be it’ll turn New Jersey around you may be turn Illinois and California around. If the pastors were to speak out and get their congregations to speak out so I would encourage the churches to take a stand because this is wrong you know it’s wrong. And then let’s fight it.
