Franklin Graham Responds to Threats by Regressive Presidential Candidates

Written by Laurie Higgins

In a recent town hall meeting on sexual deviance co-hosted by the destructive Human Rights Campaign and only slightly less destructive CNN, the question of whether churches in which intrinsically non-marital homosexual “marriage” ceremonies are not allowed to be performed should lose their tax-exempt status was posed. Well, I paraphrased the question for precision and clarity.

With fervor and inauthenticity, one of the respondents declared “Yes!” Fearing the backlash, “progressives” everywhere began pedaling backwards with equal fervor and inauthenticity, declaring how preposterous a notion it is to think theologically orthodox churches would EVER lose their tax-exempt status.

For those with short memories, here’s an exchange between U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito and Solicitor General Donald Verrilli who, on behalf of the United States, argued for same-sex marriage in Obergefell v. Hodges:

Justice Alito: Well, in the Bob Jones case, the Court held that a college was not entitled to tax­-exempt status if it opposed interracial marriage or interracial dating. So, would the same apply to a university or a college if it opposed same­-sex marriage?

Solicitor General Verrilli: You know, ­­I don’t think I can answer that question without knowing more specifics, but it’s certainly going to be an issue. I don’t deny that. I don’t deny that, Justice Alito. It is –it is going to be an issue.

If the Equality Act is passed, it is more than likely that churches and other Christian non-profit organizations will lose their tax-exempt status.

If homosexuals had a “civil right” to redefine marriage in law by jettisoning the criterion of sexual differentiation, then do polyamorists have a civil right to redefine marriage in law by jettisoning the criterion related to number of partners? Since “love is love,” what about those in loving incestuous relationships? Are they being denied their civil right to redefine marriage by jettisoning the criterion related to blood kinship?

Fortunately, in the midst of this cultural miasma, there are women and men of wisdom and courage who defend truth even when doing so brings the wrath of the tolerant. One of those courageous defenders of truth is Franklin Graham, IFI’s upcoming banquet speaker:
