Billy Graham’s Son: God Hates 'Cowards' Who Refuse to Speak Out Against Homosexuality: VIDEO

Screen Shot 2014-05-24 at 3.56.01 PM

At the Family Research Council’s Watchmen on the Wall conference last week, anti-gay preacher Franklin Graham blasted church leaders who fail to use the pulpit to push a conservative social agenda regarding abortion and homosexuality - calling such pastors “cowards.”

The Christian Post reports:

"God hates cowards. And the cowards that the Lord is referring to are the men and women who know the truth but refuse to speak it."

In his remarks at the dinner session, Graham spoke about the need for churches to speak out against abortion and homosexuality, declaring that "you're not going to shut me up."

"We have a responsibility to speak on the moral issues. Abortion, homosexuality, these are moral issues. This is a free country, you can do what you want to do but I want you to know it's a sin against God. This is a sin," said Graham.

Watch a clip of Graham's speech, in which he casually mentions that Christians may one day get their "heads chopped off" for speaking out against homosexuality, AFTER THE JUMP...

This is also the same conference that Duck Dynasty star Alan Robertson called his father Phil Robertson a "21st century prophet" for comparing homosexuality to bestiality and saying homosexual sinners were going to hell like terrorists, prostitutes, and drunks.

  1. Being such a brave christian, one wonders why he isn't campaigning against divorce, which Jesus strictly forbid. Maybe because more than 50% of christians are divorced, and abortion and homosexuality are much easier targets? And don't cowards always pick the easy targets?

  2. Homosexuality should only be a moral issue if it becomes promiscuous and/or exploitative.

  3. Petey, you don't get to decide what is "moral" any more than Elmer Gantry here. "Morality" is nothing more than what is socially acceptable, and is usually based on ancient traditions that have no real relevance to our lives. If you want to talk about ethical issues related to promiscuity, that might be worthwhile, although I do not see anything inherently unethical about promiscuity. You may also want to talk about practical and psychological implications of promiscuity, which may be relevant in terms of physical and mental health. But keep the moralizing out of it. Leave that to the Bible thumpers.

  4. He learned grifting at the side of one of the best grifters ever, his daddy.

  5. He's an old boozer, womanizer, and pill-popper from way back. Finally, after hitting rock bottom, he came crawling back to his evangelist/scammer roots to make a buck. As odious as his father was, at least he never stooped as low and mean-spirited as this idiot.

  7. "GOD HATES." - isn't that etymologically impossible?

  8. What a despicable SOB. He's about as "real Christian" as Boko Haram.

  9. "God Hates ... " Where have we seen that meme before?

    It looks like Billy's boy has been influenced more by Fred Phelps than Billy - not that either one is a particularly impressive role model...

  12. They've lost and they know it. They're pathetic.

    And they're also dangerous.

    I have no doubt he'll come up with a "Biblical" justification for killing us.

  13. Let's hope we never have to see this clown on a national television program representing our Xtian nation... As recently as Easter Sunday ABC had this idiot on their panel.

    Let's hope the gays in production put a stop to this d-bag.

  16. The word "hate" appears in the King James Bible 179 times. The word "love" appears 547 times. Says something when scum like Franklin Graham spends more time talking about hate than love.

  18. Franklin Graham would not have two dollars to rub together were it not for his father's ingenious use of religious zeal to induce political allegiance. He was the first paid political consultant.

  19. oh yes, now God hates "cowards", who else does God hate according to the right wing!??

  20. Rick Warren spent a lifetime speaking out against homosexuality, and going overseas to promote and help implement anti-gay laws. His youngest son then took a lifetime of pain and blew his brains out with a gun. Rick Warren killed his own son with hate. There's your God for you.

  21. GOD HATES? Does Christ know that? Christians hate those things they have no control over such as who one loves! God is love; Christians are HATRED!

    Posted by: DamFine | May 25, 2014 1:21:48 PM

  22. God is Love. God is Hate.
    God is Everything. God is Nothing.

  23. What he has is really faith, not truth about the things he believe in.
    As Matt Dillahunty said:
    "Faith is the excuse people give when they believe in something they don't have evidence."

  24. ~god~ hates exploitative, psychopathic, greedy lying con artists.

  25. Dear inheritor of religious bullcrap,

    That god of yours is one f**king coward; every time he has a message, he hides behind some ignorant zealot's skirts and passes on his doctrine that has absolutely no meaning in today's civilized world. A world that does not believe in superstition anymore.

    He needs to step up to the plate, and face the nation like any supposed leader of a tribe. Because his bullsh*t stinks, makes no sense, and is often in direct opposition with a previous statement against a group or another; Whichever is convenient to his tribe's prejudiced petty minds.
