Franklin Graham Gets Obliterated For Telling Pete Buttigieg To Repent For Being Gay

There’s a lot of good stuff in the Bible. There’s stuff about helping the poor and the sick, about promoting peace and human dignity. There’s also a bunch of Stone Age sex stuff that became irrelevant long ago.

But to those troglodytes who believe the Bible is the literal word of God, it’s all equally important – including social directives written in a time before feminism, gay rights, or showering. Therefore the fact that Pete Buttigieg, one of the leading 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, is gay somehow remains an issue for them.

And because a key component of being an Evangelical is believing that everyone should share your beliefs and never shutting up about it, Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, took to Twitter to call out Buttigieg for his supposed “sins.”

From his digital pulpit Graham proclaimed that God’s Word “doesn’t change” and helpfully pointed out that the Bible “defines homosexuality as a sin, something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised, or politicized.”

Needless to say Graham’s call for a gay person to “repent” for their sexuality in 2019 drew condemnation from more evolved organisms.

Many pointed out the enormous hypocrisy in Christians like Graham who pretend that they care about everything in the Bible but conveniently overlook things that apply to them and are happy to look the other way for political reasons when the “sinner” is someone they support.
