You Will Be Made to Celebrate: LGBT Blasts 'Damaging' Billy Graham

It's taken some time, but the fascist, radical nature of the LGBT political movement is finally being recognized.

Not long after the death of Billy Graham, a minister friend of mine named Jeff Faull tweeted this observation:

“Billy Graham and Hugh Hefner died within 6 months of each other. Among the many and major contrasts and differences between them - is their definition of love.”

He couldn’t be more right; and yet if you want to know just how lost and in desperate need of redemption our world is, notice which of those two men’s version of love it celebrates and which it condemns.

While Hefner was heralded as a breakthrough artist, someone who revolutionized our modern understanding of sex, lowered our inhibitions, made us freer and more expressive in our sexuality, those very same voices had this to say about the man who brought the name of Jesus into their living rooms:

[W]hile some are celebrating his legacy, others are grappling with the lasting damage his actions have done to their communities.

Over the course of Graham's 99 years of life, he reached millions of Christians around the world and had an outsized impact on the national political landscape. For many lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer people, however, Graham was a crusader against them…

"I grew up hearing Graham's name referenced in almost every church service, and when I was sent to conversion therapy, his evangelical fire was the model for our change,” [gay activist and author Garrard Conley] said. “Though many saw Graham as a loving influence, his legacy has been harmful for queer individuals.”

Though I think it took some time, the continued boldness and courage of people like Garrard Conley to reveal their true perspective and motivations, and the willingness of outlets like NBC news to champion them, a growing number of people in the country are beginning to understand the dangerous fascism inherent in the LGBT political movement. This emerging awareness is happening slowly, but it’s happening. Understanding the LGBT political movement is something completely different and completely at odds with the identity and even beliefs of average gay people next door is a monumental step in ending their dangerous threats to liberty and conscience rights.

What NBC did by publishing this anti-Graham nonsense is reveal to a watching country that even the most genial, non-political, well-respected, and almost universally revered preacher in modern American history in anathema to this political movement. Because Billy Graham did not condone and did not celebrate homosexual romantic and sexual relationships, he is to be regarded as a dark and sinister force in our culture? That’s flatly absurd to even fair-minded progressive thinkers.

But that’s the radical nature of the LGBT political movement. Billy Graham’s statements regarding homosexuality are nearly identical to those of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Which makes sense because both based their views on homosexuality off the teaching of God’s Word. So would the LGBT lobby regard King as having brought “lasting damage” to the country? Someone should ask Mr. Garrard that very question.

This isn’t “you will be made to care” kind of stuff. It’s “you will be made to celebrate.” Any person who favors liberty and autonomy will recognize the ghastly threat that represents to the future of our civilization.

God bless Billy Graham. And God bless the next generation of evangelicals, who - as a rule - accept, love and honor their gay brothers and sisters in Christ.

Really - who cares what the LGBT think of Billy? He was a man of faith and integrity. He didn't cheat on his wife, get drunk, gamble away a fortune, or beat his kids, and the worse someone can come up with is that he took the biblical stand against homosexuality? He took the biblical stand against heterosexual premarital and extra-marital sex too. And really he doesn't much care what anyone thinks or says of him now (nor in the past) - he's good where he is, thank you.

While its certainly is in bad taste to speak ill of the recently dead, atleast what you quoted sounds fairly mild. You yourself seem to agree the late Billy Graham was opposed to homosexuality and only seem to disagree on the "damaging" part. Which, whatever your position on that, is a poor example of "gay fascism". I mean if forcing bakers and florists and pizza shops to go out of business didn't wake people up why do you feel saying some slightly unkind things about a person will?
