Franklin Graham demands Jewish Justice Ginsburg follow Christian beliefs on gay marriage

Published

on

Christian evangelist Franklin Graham invited his Facebook followers to pray for Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Saturday, saying they should pray that her eyes “would be opened to the truth of Scripture” so that she would vote against marriage equality, Inquisitr reports.

But Ginsburg is Jewish and not likely a follower of his version of scripture.

“Today, let’s focus our prayers on Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who has served on the Court for over two decades,” Graham wrote on his Facebook page on Saturday. “Those who support same-sex marriage consider her an ally in their fight to toss God’s Holy Word aside.”

“As the Supreme Court continues to deliberate over the constitutionality of same-sex marriage,” he continued, “let’s pray that Justice Ginsburg’s eyes would be opened to the truth of Scripture and that she would not be deceived by the arguments of those who seek to impose their ‘new morality’ on our nation.”

This is the latest installment of a series of posts Graham wrote last week asking his followers to join him and pray for individual Supreme Court justices before the Supreme Court ruling on marriage equality. However, by praying for Justice Ginsburg, the first Jewish woman to take a seat on the Supreme Court, Graham is in effect asking her to abandon her own religious conviction and convert to his brand of Christianity, all in the name of religious freedom.

According to Inquisitr, dissenting opinions are voiced in the comment area.

“One point many fail to realize: Ginsburg is Jewish, not a Christian and therefore, her perspective will reflect her personal convictions,” one commenter wrote.

“This complete dismissal of her faith leads me to believe he thinks Jews should have no rights either,” another wrote.

However, many more commenters followed Graham and joined his prayer.

Congress can rein in Trump’s power by amending one single law

Published

By

By Kathryn Kovacs Presidential power in the United States has gotten out of hand. It’s not just one outrageous president; the presidency itself has burst free of its shackles and threatens to overrun our democracy. But Congress can restore balance by amending a single federal law.The problem isn’t the Constitution. The men who wrote the U.S. Constitution didn’t anticipate COVID-19, for example. Later Congress drafted the laws that give the president the unilateral power to keep meat-packing plants open, close the nation’s borders, and redirect billions of federal dollars. The president’s many ... (more…)
