LGBT Activists Shut Down Franklin Graham Venues

Those who have relied on the homosexual activists playing nice after they got what they said they wanted, should take a look at their latest juggernaut. England has tried to accommodate their demands and now we see the futility of that strategy.

The Billy Graham Association’s Franklin Graham scheduled 8 venues in Britain for a nation-wide evangelistic campaign this spring and summer. When the LGBTX crowd learned of it they mounted a blitz of protests targeting the owners of the large stadiums who had contracted with Graham.

One by one these owners have retracted their invitations. Eight stadiums originally contracted with Graham but as of early February, 7 of the 8 had notified Graham that he was not welcome, canceling their contracts.

One city council leader, Nick Forbes, told Pride Radio, “I don’t think there’s any room for him in our city… that kind of act does not match the values of our city.” Other city officials accused Graham of a “long record of preaching hate, bigotry, prejudice and intolerance.”

Graham penned an open letter to the LGBT community reminding them that it was not his own opinion about homosexual behavior but God’s viewpoint in the Bible. He pointed out that we are all sinners in need of Christ’s love, forgiveness and cleansing.

Another evidence of how far the UK has fallen is the treatment of Chick-fil-A. When they announced plans to open a branch in Readings, LGBT groups across the country began condemning the company.

A local homosexual group called Reading Pride said: “The chain’s ethos and moral stance goes completely against our values, and that of the UK as we are a progressive country that has legalized same-sex marriage for some years and continues to strive towards equality.”

This is the same line used by homosexual activists in the U.S. against Chick-fil-A restaurants. Their complaint is that the owners have openly supported Biblical marriage and donated money to other organizations who stand for the same.

When they make claims of being “progressive,” we have to ask: “In what direction?” Ever since Sodom and Gomorrah, every culture that has progressed toward this sin has progressed downward. Proverbs 14:34 says that “Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.”

Reproach for this sin includes (but is not limited to) greatly increased suicide rates, new sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) rarely heard of before, men in women’s bathrooms, men competing against women in professional sports, kids who don’t know if they are male or female being injected with foreign hormones and given life-changing surgeries without parental approval, legalization of sin, increased persecution of Christians, diminished freedom of speech and religion, polarization of the populace, indoctrination and sexualization of students, death threats to Christian businesses, and increased general confusion.

No wonder God calls this an abomination! (Lev. 20:13)

So, what can we do?

Well, as Bible-believing soul winners, we must just keep spreading God’s Truth. His word is still true that all sin has a price. But it is also true that His desire is to redeem us personally and thus redeem the culture.

Unfortunately, the modern Bibles have diluted His truth in many ways couching sodomy in terms like temple prostitutes and perverted persons. Homosexual activists and even “Christian” sympathizers quote these verses to justify their sin.

Chick Publications has remained consistent with scriptures from the only true translation of the Bible in English, the one authorized by King James. To one degree or another, the others are the work of “translators” who inserted their biased interpretations into the text.
