Franklin Graham: It’s Not Homophobic To Hate Gays

JuliaGlazer

Graham uses U.S. soccer player Jaelene Hinkle as an example.

Through a post on Facebook, Christian evangelist Franklin Graham has said it is not homophobic to stand against gay people.

His post reads: “Ashlyn Harris of the U.S. Soccer Women’s National Team was recently in the news for accusing former teammate Jaelene Hinkle of homophobia. Why? Because Jaelene took a stand for her faith.”

Graham explains, “In 2017, Jaelene refused to play two matches for the U.S. Women’s National Team, reportedly because she wouldn’t wear the team’s gay pride-themed jersey. Jaelene has said, “This world may change, but Christ and His Word NEVER will.” She’s right—and standing with that truth takes courage. Ashlyn Harris needs to understand that believing the Word of God doesn’t mean that you’re homophobic. It means you’re truthful.”

Graham finishes the post by proudly asserting, “Jaelene chose her faith above fame, above soccer, and above her peers. Let’s encourage Jaelene in the comments below.”

Christ never said anything about being gay. And God never said anything against gays in his 10 commandments.

A lot of people are saying Jesus was gay. I don't know but a lot of people are talking about it.

It sure is hypocritical for a Christian to hate anyone!....Guess he forgot about that!

Hate is the new currency of Christianity. Judge first, worship later in hypocrisy.
