Here Franklin Graham talking to the Associated Press:
Two quick thoughts:
1. Franklin Graham has made a lot of things his “business” over the years–homosexuality, gay marriage, abortion, immigration, Muslims, etc…. But when it comes to Trump he has suddenly become a libertarian.
2. Franklin Graham believes that God put Donald Trump in the Oval Office for a reason and we should thus support him. OK, let’s say that God did put Trump in the White House as part of His divine plan. I am sure there are many readers of this blog who believe this at some level. The court evangelicals believe Trump is in office to defend religious liberty and the free market, end gay marriage and abortion, and restore America to its so-called “Christian roots.” But what if God put Trump in office to reveal the hypocrisy of American Christians, to call people back to true biblical faith, or to bring an end to a sinful United States of America? This is the problem with trying to discern God’s providence. As Ambrose Bierce put it, providence is an idea that is “unexpectedly and consciously beneficial to the person so describing it.”
