In the wake of the violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, Rev. Franklin Graham has a bold message for politicians blaming President Trump: “Shame on You!”
Too many politicians and so-called Republicans have denounced Trump, despite Trump denouncing the attacks and calling for peace. Graham explains, “Satan is behind it all. He wants division, he wants unrest, he wants violence and hatred. He’s the enemy of peace and unity. I denounce bigotry and racism of every form, be it black, white or any other.”
Graham, who is the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, shared this powerful message on Facebook, which is already going viral:
Shame on the politicians who are trying to push blame on President Trump for what happened in #Charlottesville, VA. That’s absurd. What about the politicians such as the city council who voted to remove a memorial that had been in place since 1924, regardless of the possible repercussions? How about the city politicians who issued the permit for the lawful demonstration to defend the statue? And why didn’t the mayor or the governor see that a powder keg was about to explode and stop it before it got started? Instead they want to blame President Donald J. Trump for everything. Really, this boils down to evil in people’s hearts. Satan is behind it all. He wants division, he wants unrest, he wants violence and hatred. He’s the enemy of peace and unity. I denounce bigotry and racism of every form, be it black, white or any other. My prayer is that our nation will come together. We are stronger together, and our answers lie in turning to God. It was good to hear that several Virginia and Charlottesville leaders attended church today at Mt. Zion. CNN said, “The racial divides that fueled Saturday’s violence were replaced by unity Sunday…” Continue to pray for peace and for all those impacted by Saturday’s tragedies.
Graham is calling for America to come together and turn to God. Politicians who are using these evil attacks to their advantage are only dividing us and inflaming the flames of racial hatred.
Thank you, Rev. Graham, for standing up for peace and supporting President Trump.
