Franklin Graham tries to 'cancel' Amy Grant for support of same-sex marriage. Has yet to 'cancel' Donald Trump.

Franklin Graham

Popular Christian gospel singer Amy Grant, who was recently honored at the Kennedy Centers Honors, is in the news because she is hosting her niece's same-sex wedding at her farm. Grant said she is doing this because she believes that her faith tells her that God loves everyone for who they are.

Naturally some in the conservative evangelical community aren't happy. It's ironic how these folks go on and on about their right to "religious freedom" and "religious freedom" but will refuse to extend the courtesy to others. 

Practically elbowing himself to be first in line spewing condemnations is Franklin Graham in a Facebook post and a series of tweets seen below:

It's a delicious irony that Graham's pretentious attack on Grant is coming at the same time in which the House Jan 6th committee recommended that the DOJ prosecute former President Donald Trump for his part in causing the Jan 6th attack on the Capitol. The attack was spurred on in part by Trump's false claim that he was cheated out of victory in the 2020 election.

It was a claim which Franklin supported:

How a Bible Error Changed History and Turned Gays Into Pariahs - I like how this challenges the idea that being an LGBTQ and being a Christian are diametrically opposite to one another. It simply isn't true.

Court upholds Connecticut's transgender athlete policy - Very significant because it put a hole in the religious right claim that trans female athletes has an advantage over cis female athletes. They couldn't prove the advantage in court.

Reddit users name the best LGBTQ villains of all time - The black guy dressed as a nun in 'Comeback Charleston Blue' didn't make the countdown. Boooo!
