Franklin Graham Goes on Anti-Gay Rant, Says ‘Gay Pride Flag Is Offensive to Christians,’ Gets Totally Destroyed

 
 
 
Franklin Graham spent one of the biggest gay pride weekends attacking LGBT people, and now he's getting totally destroyed on social media.

Praising the news that the U.S. State Dept. under President Donald Trump is now banning gay pride flags from flying at American embassies around the world, Graham took to Twitter and Facebook, delivering his message of homophobic nationalism.

"I want to thank President Donald J. Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for making the decision not to fly the gay flag over our embassies during June in recognition of gay pride month," Graham wrote on Facebook. "That is the right decision. The only flag that should fly over our embassies is the flag of the United States of America. The gay pride flag is offensive to Christians and millions of people of other faiths, not only in this country but around the world. The U.S. flag represents our nation—everyone—regardless of race, religion, or sexual orientation."

Graham also this weekend highlighted the story of anti-gay Christian florist Barronelle Stutzman, who just lost her case at the Washington State Supreme Court.

"It’s Baronelle’s religious freedoms that are being discriminated against!" Graham tweeted. "Baronelle should have the freedom not to participate in something she feels is wrong," he added, asking people to pray for her.

Many are taking offense to Graham's remarks, just as they did recently when he told Pete Buttigieg to "repent" for loving his husband and for being gay. Even his hometown newspaper called Graham's views "moral manure," "fringe," and "gloriously irrelevant."

Here's what people are saying in response to Graham's latest anti-LGBT attacks.
