    Christian charity head declares gay people are ‘the enemy’

    "The head of a Christian charity appears to have declared war on gay people – claiming they are “the enemy” and should be thrown out of churches.

    Pastor Franklin Graham, the head of global Christian charity Samaritan’s Purse, made the comments in a radio Q&A with Focus on the Family."

    I find it very saddening that there is such misunderstanding in the world that generates such hatred in people.

    You think "misunderstanding" is the problem? I wonder...

    Has he infiltrated our secret meetings? How did he discover our nefarious plans? Do we have a double agent in our midst? We must enter damage control mode!

    Sam27 saidGay Russians need our help. Don't let these guys win.


    Thumbs up to thisicon_exclaim.gif

    Russia's treatment of gay people is appalling. It needs way more attention and practical steps towards solving the situation than its given at the moment.

    My Christian church could not disagree more with this ignorant hater.

    The title/article is conflating his language, like everyone else who is not really keen on making the distinction:

    The "Enemy" of which he speaks is Satan. Within Franklin's worldview, Satan has many tactics to try to destroy the Church, one of which is to get people to succumb to the so-called practice (or "lifestyle") of immorality. Those who are opposed to doing the will of God live immorally, or if one lives immorally, one is moving in the direction of opposing God's will. This immorality can also be sexual or otherwise. It is these people that he is saying to not be allowed into the churches lest they corrupt everyone else.

    You'll notice he qualifies himself about not being "against gay people". If you think he is referring to gays as the enemy then you've missed the point. He's not against gay people as he is against immorality within the church and the congregations that are blind to it.

    While I don't agree with Franklin on homosexual orientation being immoral, I do feel he needs to be more sensitive about certain nuances and distinctions lest there be misunderstandings like this. Also, we need to take note of the context: he's talking to people in his "in-group" so you're hearing jargon that may not necessarily carry the same meaning when taken out of context.

    ^^ How the hell is someone such as Franky supposed to show sensitivity for the nuances and distinctions when he refuses to listen and acknowledge that being gay is not a chosen lifestyle? He has lumped homosexuality into the same category as murderers, thieves, adulterers, etc. How the hell are gay people not supposed to take those hypocritical thoughts and beliefs out of context?

    Oh, notice how I used the word "hypocritical" so let me give you an example. Franky has an annual salary of around $800k from Samaritans Purse. I find it quite hypocritical that he would talk about homosexuality being an abomination because it's in the bible....and yet, the same bible describes how a rich man can never make it into heaven.

    Watch out! You're clearly an apostate, worshipping a false god! They'll come after you as soon as they are through eradicating us!
