Franklin Graham bashes GOP on spending bill, funding Planned Parenthood

Evangelist Franklin Graham announced Tuesday he is leaving the Republican Party over the GOP-led spending bill passed last week, calling it “wasteful” and likening funding of Planned Parenthood to Nazi concentration camps.

“Shame on the Republicans and the Democrats for passing such a wasteful spending bill last week,” he said.  “And to top it off, funding Planned Parenthood!”

“Seeing and hearing Planned Parenthood talk nonchalantly about selling baby parts from aborted fetuses with utter disregard for human life is reminiscent of Joseph Mengele and the Nazi concentration camps!,” he wrote in a Facebook post.

“That should’ve been all that was needed to turn off the faucet for their funding. Nothing was done to trim this 2,000 page, $1.1 trillion budget.”

Graham, who has voiced support for GOP White House hopeful Donald Trump as well as embraced his controversial call to ban Muslims from the U.S., said he’s lost faith in the political system.

“I have no hope in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or Tea Party to do what is best for America,” he wrote. “Unless more godly men and women get in this process and change this wicked system, our country is in for trouble.”

Two Republicans running for office, Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, voted against the measure (as did socialist Bernie Sanders) with Marco Rubio skipping the vote.

    Franklin Graham is an embarrassment to Christians of conscience everywhere, and a disgrace to his father’s legacy. Stick to preaching and doing the Gospel, not getting involved in Trump politics that have nothing to do with the teachings of Jesus who loved all people, especially outcasts and sinners, refugees and the poor. I wish Rev. Dr. Billy Graham had chosen his daughter to be his successor. She is a better preacher anyway.
