AND NOW THIS: More than 22,000 people have signed a petition calling for the Rev. Franklin Graham to be fired from his leading roles at the Christian humanitarian organization Samaritans Purse as well as the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association because of his support for former President Donald Trump, SAYING:
“It’s no wonder the failed coup [at the U.S. Capitol] featured crosses and ‘Jesus saves’ banners and flags…..Graham and the religious right must be held accountable for their deadly dishonesty.” Paul Saber, who serves on the board of directors for both organizations, told McClatchy News in a statement Tuesday that Faithful America “fabricated this lie that (Graham) incited violence at the Capitol.”
Are we to grasp that this petitioner says that anything about God and Jesus is WHY the Capitol was breached? According to Rev. Nathan Empsall of “Faithful America“:
“Graham gets away with his hatred and conspiracy-theories by hiding behind the humanitarian work of Samaritan’s Purse and his late father’s name,” Faithful America said in the petition. “It’s time for Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) to realize that by propping up Franklin’s unchristian extremism, they are abandoning their Gospel missions, undermining democracy, and helping incite white-nationalist sedition.” The petition encourages board members to fire Graham or resign in protest.
AND ACCORDING TO INFLUENCE WATCH: Faithful America was established to resemble a “religious version of MoveOn.org.” Faithful America serves as a forum for petitions which promote progressive social policies, using a grassroots network of members across the United States. In 2007, Faith in Public Life, a left-of-center, tax-exempt charity, acquired Faithful America. After this acquisition occurred, Faithful America leaders met with then-Iranian regime president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and issued demands to the U.S. and Iranian governments to engage in “direct face-to-face talks” and to stop using “enemy images” of one another. In 2009, Faithful America joined in an ad campaign to support socialized medicine, using biblical framing.That same year, FA activists erected a large ark on the National Mall to frame climate change using religious imagery.
Rev. Nathan Empsall must be a true God hater, an atheist to the utter core to direct his hate to a man that helps everyone, regardless of religious affiliation, during natural disasters. HIS FATHER Billy Graham has been in the White House more than most Americans for decades. THIS minister will tell you that Rev. Nathan Empsall seeks a way that is NOT God’s and He is not pleased with attacking his elect. Also, dear petitioner, the next time you suffer a natural disaster, call Ghost Busters, call Pelosi, call a cab….but do not call the man of God YOU hate. This is out of hand. If you happened to be in DC for the rally, or you publicly supported Trump, you are targeted, doxxed, until you lose your job and business. It somehow appeases liberal left-wing extremists to see your life erased.
So-called “Faithful America” is literally about EVERYTHING the true church is against. It would be apparent they have misplaced their Bible and reasonable good sense.
