Wow, I never thought I would ever find myself saying this but thank you Franklin Graham:
Graham's entire Facebook statement is as follows:
LGBTQ activists are using corporations to force their agenda on the public, and companies may want to take another look at what they are allowing to happen. Disney has gone too far. The people of Florida have revolted, and it’s going to cost Disney big time. Disney had a special tax status in the state which they benefitted from in a huge way—but because they came out against the parents of Florida, the governor and legislators have revoked that status.What has happened at Disney is moral failure. Walt Disney had a vision for wholesome family entertainment. He was committed to the family. The morals of the corporate leadership of Disney today are in the gutter, and they want to redefine family counter to God’s original design and flaunt sin. Thank God for Governor Ron DeSantis who is willing to take a bold stand. We need more leaders like him. God bless him and the Florida legislature.I’m in Orlando right now with our Samaritan’s Purse Operation Heal Our Patriots military veteran couples and it is absolutely beautiful! I can tell you there’s a TON of fun things for families to do here other than supporting Disney.
What I want to know is what happened to all of the stuff folks were saying about how DeSantis and Florida was trying to protect kids from 'groomers' and pedophiles? Graham didn't mention any of that and this is probably because the 'Don't Say Gay' bill was never about protecting children. It was about mandating, by the full weight of secular law, the idea that LGBTQ families are something to be ashamed of or erased because they supposedly don't fit 'God's design,' as determined by Graham and company.
It's about legal sanction of homophobia, transphobia. and simple prejudice. It's especially about imposing far-right Christian fascism. And that last part especially pisses me off.
Obviously Graham must think the entire nation is stupid. He spent four years kissing Donald Trump's ass, defending Donald Trump's lies and himself lying for Donald Trump and then thinks he can place himself on some mantle in which he gets to judge people and mandate families to be sinful inferiors?
Who in the hell does Graham think he is? What gives him the right to point out people as sinners when he has yet to acknowledge his very public sins?
Graham must have prayed that God give America amnesia to wipe away the Trump years from our minds. Well, I've got news for him.
It didn't work.
Editor's note - Graham or his people weren't happy with me talking about 'far-right Christian fascism' on his Facebook page, so I am blocked. Oh well. I don't take any of it back.
