Evangelist Franklin Graham has a white hot meltdown on Twitter after big liberal win

Published

on

Franklin Graham isn’t even trying to pretend to live the words of Jesus Christ anymore. The hyper-partisan son of the late Rev. Billy Graham, just days after Easter, took to Twitter to denigrate progressives in the wake of Tuesday’s stunning upset that placed a progressive Democrat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court.

“WI just lost a seat in its state Supreme Court to a progressive judge. In my opinion, if Christians had come out to vote, this seat wouldn’t have been lost. It’s not the time to be silent—it’s time to make positive change for our children & grandchildren,” Graham tweeted on Thursday.

 71 percent of Wisconsin residents are Christian, so it’s unclear who Graham thinks put Judge Rebecca Dallet on the state’s highest court. But hypothetically, would she be any less good of a judge if only Jewish people placed her there? Or atheists? Or Muslims? Or the one out of four Wisconsinites who are spiritual but not religious?

Who, exactly, does Graham think voted for her? It had have included a large number of Wisconsin’s Christians, since she won by a 12 point margin.

 But Graham also went even further, attacking progressives.

“Christians should be aware of candidates who call themselves progressive. Progressive is generally just a code word for someone who leans toward socialism, who does not believe in God, & who will likely vote against Godly principles that are so important to our nation,” Graham also tweeted.

What Graham is really saying is that only true Christians are Republicans and only true Christians vote Republican. As the head of a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt charity he’s toeing a dangerous line – or would be if his BFF, Donald Trump, hadn’t told the IRS to ignore violations of the Johnson Amendment.

 Ironically, Graham’s $300 million charity is named Samaritan’s Purse, based on the biblical principle to “love your neighbor as yourself.”

Not everyone agreed with Graham’s attacks:

New York Times admits they ‘downplayed’ the rape allegation against Trump

Published

on

On Monday, The New York Times issued a mea culpa for the nature of their coverage of the allegation by advice columnist E. Jean Carroll that President Donald Trump raped her in a department store in the 1990s.

"After an article last week reported the advice columnist E. Jean Carroll's rape allegations against President Trump, some readers accused The Times of downplaying the story," wrote staff editor Laura Takenaga. "Many have written to ask us why we didn't give the allegations more attention on our website and in print ... Some questioned whether the lack of prominence showed too much deference to the president's denials, or whether it even suggested misogyny or an unwillingness to believe a victim's account."

Published

on

West Virginia state Sen. Mike Azinger penned an angry op-ed for the Parkersburg News and Sentinel, scorning the idea of LGBTQ acceptance and warning that it is a massive plot to indoctrinate people against Christian values.

"Tolerance, in the face of the violation of the commandments of God, is no virtue at all," said Azinger, a manager of a contracting firm with a master's degree in pastoral theology. He ripped into the local newspaper for covering an LGBTQ pride event the previous Saturday, thundering that, "Sexual deviancy is going mainstream."

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
