Billy Graham's Son Praises Putin's Stance On Gay Issues

Franklin_grahamIn the March 14 issue of Decision Magazine, Franklin Graham — the evangelical spawn of anti-gay preacher Billy Graham — praised Russia's law against homosexual propaganda, stating:

"Putin is right on (gay) issues... he has taken a stand to protect his nation’s children from the damaging effects of any gay and lesbian agenda.

"Isn’t it sad, though, that America’s own morality has fallen so far that on this issue – protecting children from any homosexual agenda or propaganda – Russia’s standard is higher than our own?

"It's obvious that President Obama and his administration are pushing the gay-lesbian agenda in America today and have sold themselves completely to that which is contrary to God's teaching... 

"Our president and his attorney general have turned their backs on God and His standards, and many in the Congress are following the administration's lead. This is shameful."

Graham makes sure to say however, "I am not endorsing President Putin," although he certainly shares Putin's equivocation of homosexuality and pedophilia.

One should also note that Decision Magazine is owned by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association which Franklin Graham heads.

Previously, Graham said that gays can't make a family due to "different plumbing" and wished that someone like Jerry Falwell would come back and resurrect The Moral Majority. MSNBC host Chris Matthews has also said that he would never have Graham on his show because "he tells hateful lies."

  7. Even the Catholic League doesn't go that far. At least Bill Donahue implicitly put gay pride and St Paddy parade on the same level. This sick guy wants to ban gay pride parade? And ban all gay literature?

  8. Nice timing Franklin. Your stupid magazine is published the same week that Russia annexes Crimea. You will live to regret these words of praise for Putin. What an idiot.

  12. Putin runs a gangster government.

    For paedophelia Graham should look to his own deviant hetro couples where statistics show that the paedophiles are.

    He is just a bare faced manipulative liar.

    We should adopt that title every time his name comes up.
    Franklin 'Liar' Graham.

  13. Franklin needs some Christian instruction 101 courtesy of Pope Francis.

    Lesson #1: Stop judging others.

    These hypocrites are so fixated on condemning homosexuality but never mention heterosexual promiscuity, fornication or divorce.

  14. Agenda---mentioned 3 times, Propaganda--mentioned once. Hummm, interesting words.

    Obviously their message is clear about their latest tactics. See, it's Obama's fault. Before it was the judges.

    Maybe we should ask does the Religious Right (white) have an agenda too or is that just for people who support GLBT issues?

    Exactly what damages are being done to children? I would like them to define what this damage is.

    Does the straight agenda ignor, support or condone divorce? Where is domestic abuse or explotation of women, children and minorities in the decussion on straight families?

    Should people who are divorce or who have committed adultery be equally excommunicated? Doesn't the Bible speak about death to those who commit these acts?

    It is time we start asking these questions to those who have an opinion on the GBLT community. Those who live in glass houses....

  16. Seems Franklin 'Liar' Graham is deliberately pushing the agenda of trying to link homos with paedophilia.
    It won't wash.
    People see through this spin of lies.

    Everyone with a gay cousin, brother , sister etc. knows the lies he peddles for money.
    And two loving Dads and kids are the strongest, most loving family I have ever seen.
    Shame on this rotten-corpse-of-a-human to distort and denigrate our community for his self satisfying delusions and his thirst for publicity.

  17. We have an "agenda" for equality....Frankie's got a theocratic, dictatorial and bigoted agenda of denying rights, freedom and liberty. Religion truly the narcotic of the masses.

  21. His father wasn't a bad person years ago.
    Franklin and his sister have been issuing statements from the old man for years. Franklin is much more to the right and Billy is senile: a bad combination.
    His kids were out of control furious in the 1990s when their father was said to be reconsidering catholicism and being too chummy with a lot of prominent catholics. That's when they started trying to shut him up or speak for him. I haven't believed anything attributed to the father for years.

  22. Franklin -just more out about his hatred and bigotry than his conniving father.
    He always was a cheap imitation. Didn't have the savvy and Elmer Gantry style of his father who inexplicably has been given sainthood in this country.

    Posted by: Nick | Mar 20, 2014 2:46:33 PM

  23. This no-talent son of a famous father keeps trying to exploit his father's fame for his own gain. Franklin hasn't got a single achievement to his credit. All he's got is a family name to cash-in with. His only real ability is grifting.

  24. I'm really sick of these right wingers praising Putin and bashing Obama. That is the ultimate in being un-American. what else can we expect from people who confuse hate with freedom of speech and freedom of religion?

    Posted by: Rich | Mar 20, 2014 2:55:40 PM

  25. There was nothing saintly about ol' Billy. He used his preaching prowess to gain fame and fortune with the best of them, abetted by weak-willed politicians.
