God might send a lightning storm to Washington, D.C., to smite the White House for displaying rainbow colors after the Supreme Court’s historic same-sex marriage ruling, according to pastor Franklin Graham.
Franklin, the son of the famed evangelicist Billy Graham, wrote Tuesday on Facebook that President Barack Obama had angered God.
“A lot has changed in three short years! Just three years ago, the President was on record as holding to the biblical definition of marriage,” he said.
“Now he can’t say enough about his support for the LGBT agenda—and right after the Supreme Court’s decision to legalize same-sex marriage, he had the gall to disgrace the White House by lighting it up with the gay pride rainbow colors to celebrate,” Graham explained. “This is arrogantly flaunting sinful behavior in the face of Almighty God. My advice? He might want to have some extra lightning rods installed on the roof of the White House.”
Israeli president to meet Netanyahu, Gantz in bid to break deadlock
Israel's president will meet Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his main opponent Benny Gantz together on Monday as he pressures their two parties to form a unity government after last week's election.
The key meeting comes as the deadlocked vote results threaten Netanyahu's long tenure in office, but he has shown no sign of willingly giving up his post.
President Reuven Rivlin announced in a statement he had invited the two to a meeting together in the evening as he considers whom to task with trying to form a government.
Rivlin made the announcement after he wrapped up consultations with political parties elected to parliament to hear their recommendations for who should form the next government.
‘A threat to virtually everything that the United States should stand for’: Scathing NYT op-ed on Trump goes viral
A damning piece by New York Times Opinion Columnist David Leonhardt is going viral. “Donald Trump vs. the United States of America” says it’s “Just the facts, in 40 sentences.”
That’s all it is.
40 sentences, 40 facts chronicling President Donald Trump’s lawlessness, self-dealing, un-American behavior, attempts to do real damage to vital institutions, and grotesque acts. Some are impeachable offenses. Some are just not worthy – or are disqualifying – of a president of the United States.
Mississippi: African American voters sue over election law rooted in the state’s racist past
A lawsuit over a Mississippi election law, if successful, will change the way that state elects its governor.
Four African Americans filed the federal civil rights lawsuit in May 2019, charging that the way their state elects its statewide officials violates the Voting Rights Act, the 14th Amendment and the principle of “one-person, one-vote.”
To win election, a candidate for governor of Mississippi has to win an outright majority of the popular vote – and win a majority of the state’s 122 House districts.
