At 93, Billy Graham endorses anti-gay amendment, decides to go out with a bigoted bang


I’ve had great respect for Billy Graham in my life thus far. That ends today. According to the Vote For Marriage NC coalition and The Charlotte Observer, Rev. Billy Graham has endorsed the anti-LGBT, anti-children, anti-family and anti-business constitutional amendment on the North Carolina May 8 ballot.

“At 93, I never thought we would have to debate the definition of marriage,” the national religious leader says. “The Bible is clear — God’s definition of marriage is between a man and a woman. I want to urge my fellow North Carolinians to vote FOR the marriage amendment on Tuesday, May 8.”

The flier is below.

It’s all too bad really. For such a respected man at the end of his life, this is how he decides to take a bow? More than likely, he’ll not live long enough to see his name drug through the mud as history turns its eye back on his bigotry with shameful judgment. Unlike George Wallace, Billy Graham will be able to offer no retraction or apology. Perhaps, he’ll be able to explain his support of a hateful and discriminatory measure attacking the “least of these” to God.

    I knew the accusation of hate would show up.

    So much for “Love the sinner, Hate the sin” part of his legacy. I used to live in Wheaton, IL, where his college is located. What a nice campus, but I often wondered if what they taught there was anything different than, say, Liberty College. So long, Billy.

    Why in the world would you have any respect for this charlatan? Billy Graham is now and always has been a bigot. HR Haldeman wrote about anti-Semitic remarks he heard him make in the White House during the Nixon administration. At the time Graham denied making the comments. Years later the Nixon tapes were declassified and you could hear Graham going on a Jew-bashing rant about “the synagogue of Satan” and Jews having a “stranglehold” on the media and how they were destroying the country.

    I do not believe Billy Graham hated anyone, but this is what he believed in and this is his own right. He has the right to vote whatever he wants. I do not support gay marriage for it is not what the Lord attended for his children, nor do I hate gay people..

    I believe he is a man that knows the Bible, the Word written by inspiration of God, and Billy Graham is a man fearful of God, (going home soon) facing his judgement. better say it the way God said it… it is clear in the Bible the marriage God intended… Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. I do not hate gays or lesbians… I BELIEVE THE BIBLE.. and Graham is right. amen
