Fire, Brimstone and Hatred

The apple and the tree. Father and son. No…not that “(Holy) Father and His son” but, rather, the self-appointed holy roller and his son. This time, the batshit crazy statements of the son, Franklin Graham, aren’t in the news — it’s his father. It is the father who is now reminding us that the apple and the tree are one and the same.

The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association felt a need to speak out in support of an amendment about which North Carolina’s voters will decide on Tuesday. Amendment 1 reads:

“Constitutional amendment to provide that marriage between one man and one woman is the only domestic legal union that shall be valid or recognized in this State.”

Way to go, Mr. Graham. Feel free to continue your legacy of using religion to further the goals of bigots everywhere but know this: change is coming, and your fiery support of a ban on gay marriage won’t stop that.
