Franklin Graham on Abortion, Homosexuality, and Cowardice
The Rev Franklin Graham had a firm message for pastors at the 2014 Watchmen on the Wall National Briefing: “God hates cowards.”
“God hates cowards. And the cowards that the Lord is referring to are the men and women who know the truth but refuse to speak it…”
“We have a responsibility to speak on the moral issues. Abortion, homosexuality, these are moral issues. This is a free country, you can do what you want to do but I want you to know it’s a sin against God. This is a sin,” said Graham.
The news media didn’t even know it was a verse. They thought I was just mouthing off. Is homosexual behavior a sin? the guy asked me. I said, ‘Do you not know that the wicked will not inherit the kingdom of God? Don’t be deceived. Neither the sexually immoral, nor the idolaters nor adulterers nor male prostitutes, nor homosexual offenders, nor thieves, nor greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God.’
I gave you the rest of the story. I gave you the bad news then I gave you the good news. I said the apostle Paul then said and that’s what some of you were. I was in that camp. I’ve been in that camp…We’ve all been there. The reason we’re here today is to remind you of the gospel that was preached.”

If people have a problem with these comments, they have a problem with the Bible for all Robertson is doing is reiterating Paul’s message.
Of course, some people do have a problem with the Bible, and they’ll stop at nothing to stigmatize it and push it from the public square — including, if possible, using the powers of the US government to aid their effort.
