Evangelist Franklin Graham supports Trump a convicted felon for president

By Lynda Carson - June 1, 2024

Oakland, CA -- Evangelist Franklin Graham, a son of evangelist Billy Graham, and the CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritin’s Purse is a Trump supporter.

Franklin Graham is a staunch Trump supporter who has been mocked for supporting Trump by thousands of other evangelists who have signed a petition to remove him as the head of Samaritin’s Purse.

According to Faithful America, (Posted: Aug. 28, 2020)

“The final night of the 2020 Republican convention began with a partisan appearance from notoriously homophobic preacher Franklin Graham, who prayed, "I thank you tonight for our president, Donald J. Trump... in the mighty name of your Son."

Standing behind a Trump-Pence campaign sign, Graham also used Jesus's name to give thanks for "the many blessings we have received these past four years." We would hardly consider family separation, the deadly federal COVID-19 response, rampant corruption and authoritarianism, or ongoing systemic racism to be "blessings."

Graham justifies his partisanship and hatred by hiding behind the credibility of Samaritan's Purse, the 50-year-old humanitarian-aid organization he runs. Samaritan's Purse certainly does important work for the sick and poor -- which just makes it that much sadder that the non-profit's board would sacrifice its reputation by propping up Graham's hateful politics.

If the directors of Samaritan's Purse care about their credibility -- and if they truly believe in their "purpose of sharing God's love" -- then Graham's hateful support for Trump should show them that it's time to find a new chairman and CEO.”

(If a majority of the Board will not remove Graham, individual members can still stand up for Jesus' teachings of love and justice by personally resigning.)”

Like other Republican staunch Trump supporters, the idiotic Franklin Graham has already received his marching orders to sow the seeds of doubt about the so-called criminal justice system, rather than condemn the twice impeached former president Donald J. Trump who has recently been convicted of 34 felonies, and faces a possible prison sentence on July 11, 2024.

Trump shows no remorse for his crimes, and continues to attack the judge who will sentence him for his crimes on July 11. Apparently, Franklin Graham has become an embarrassment to Wheaton College in Wheaton, Illinois, and the Billy Graham Center, named after his father, which is also located in Wheaton, at the Wheaton College.

Rather than condemn Trump (their famed notorious criminal leader) who is now a convicted felon, and on-going election denier, who spearheaded an attempt to overthrow an election, Franklin Graham and the tyranny of the Republican Party want to focus instead on attacking the legal system, a judge, jury, and those involved in convicting the criminal Donald J. Trump for his many criminal activities.

Instead of admitting that their felony convicted election denier leader Donald J. Trump has for years been feeding them the Kool-Aid of lies, deceit, thuggery, and criminal activities, they continue to support and follow Trump down the path of unrighteousness, doom, and damnation, in an effort to destroy this country, and all that it stands for.

Some of the idiotic Franklin Graham’s latest postings below on X (formerly known as Twitter) reveal that Graham has been using “GOD” to sow doubt about the integrity of the brave jurors who have convicted Trump of 34 felonies, and has been using “GOD” to sow doubt about the “trust in the legal system.”

Apparently, it appears that Franklin Graham is now in league with the Proud Boys, neo-Nazis, and other fascists who have been sending out comments fomenting violence against the judge in the case, the brave jurors, and against others who do not support the 34 time convicted felon known as Donald J. Trump. Republicans have been posting threats of violence on-line, while threatening the jurors who convicted Trump, and some are threatening to dox them (exposing home addresses, etc…).

For those who may be interested in seeing some recent comments below by Franklin Graham on his X account, see further below.

In contrast, see a few comments on X, below the comments of Franklin Graham, by others who are pleased that justice has been served, and that the twice impeached, former president Donald J. Trump is now a 34 time convicted felon, who faces sentencing on July 11.

Our country is at a crossroads. What we saw today has never happened before, and I think for the majority of Americans, it raises questions about whether our legal system can be trusted. Pray for our nation, for God‘s guiding hand that this republic will be one nation under God with liberty and justice for all.

Don't listen to the people who say 'this verdict just got Trump re-elected'.

They're many of the same people who said right after his 1st impeachment - 'this impeachment just guaranteed Trump's re-election.'

It was a close election yesterday. It's close tomorrow.Show more

Convicted felon Donald Trump is blaming the judge, the jury and New York for being found guilty on 34 counts. He will never accept accountability for his crimes. Americans must not allow this felon anywhere near the White House again.

If Trump becomes a convicted felon and elected officials are still willing to support him, I’m sure they’ll have no problem with him having used the N-word.

Trump supporters, extremists, right-wing pundits, and politicians have all posted incendiary rhetoric, including some calls for “war,” following his guilty verdict ---

Proud Boys channels responded to the news in one word: “War.”
