Franklin Graham defends evangelicals supporting Trump

As Donald Trump’s lewd remarks and insults have created a major divide in the political arena, the surprising support from evangelicals have surprised everyone. Pastor Franklin Graham took to his Facebook page Saturday to defend the evangelical leaders who have remained in Trump’s corner.

“A lot of people are slamming evangelicals for supposedly giving Donald J. Trump a pass. That’s simply not true. No one is giving him a pass. I’m certainly not, and I’ve not met an evangelical yet who condones his language or inexcusable behavior from over a decade ago. However, he has apologized to his wife, his family, and to the American people for this. He has taken full responsibility. This election isn’t about Donald Trump’s behavior from 11 years ago or Hillary Clinton’s recent missing emails, lies, and false statements. This election is about the Supreme Court and the justices that the next president will nominate. Evangelicals are going to have to decide which candidate they trust to nominate men and women to the court who will defend the constitution and support religious freedoms. My prayer is that Christians will not be deceived by the liberal media about what is at stake for future generations.”

At a prayer rally in Raleigh, Graham told an assembled crowd of approximately 10,500 to “hold your nose and vote.”

You have to decide which one of the two (presidential candidates) that you would trust to appoint justices that are going to protect our religious freedom as Christians. Vote where you can for people that are going to support Biblical principles.

    […] Religious leaders defending vile, evil politicians to expand their own influence in the name of God? Who cares, ’cause we’re Amurica! […]

    Franklin Graham & Co are taking the Lords name
    In vain by tying Christ to any political candidate. I resent my faith being misused in this manner & Franklin owes all Christians an apology

    Politics takes us off message. Loving God & Loving our neighbor. Jesus could have gotten involved in politics but it wasn’t important enough for his kingdom. He took on the religious leaders for being hypocrites and giving him a bad name
