Franklin Graham Just Slapped The Supreme Court With The One Thing About Marriage They Don’t Realize

"God is clear about the definition of marriage..."

Many of the 1.7 million people who like Franklin Graham’s Facebook page are giving a big thumbs-up to his reaction to the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage decision. That message was posted by the head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association shortly after the high court ruled 5-4 that same-sex couples have a nationwide right to marry, no matter what individual states or their residents might say.

As of this writing, more than 130,000 people have liked Graham’s statement, which reads in part: “With all due respect to the court, it did not define marriage, and therefore is not entitled to re-define it.” And the number of Facebook likes for the pastor’s reaction is growing rapidly.

Graham’s assessment of the country’s standing in the eyes of God is rather pessimistic, as he tells his Facebook friends: “I pray God will spare America from His judgment, though, by our actions as a nation, we give Him less and less reason to do so.”

The entirety of Franklin Graham’s popular — and certainly for many advocates of same-sex marriage, provocative — post on Facebook is shown below.

Just yesterday, possibly in anticipation of the Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage as a constitutional right nationwide, the Rev. Graham commented on the White House event President Obama hosted for LGBT activists earlier this week. Graham told his Facebook audience that the shift in attitudes about so-called ‘gay rights’ exhibited by Americans in recent years represents a dangerous “moral decline” and an acceptance of “sin as something to be proud of.”

That Facebook post has also generated tremendous response, with close to 155,000 likes, nearly 50,000 shares, and more than 18,000 comments.
