Franklin Graham Claims That Any Suggestion He's Anti-LGBTQ+ Is "Simply Not True"

Evangelical leader Franklin Graham is defending a police chief in Florida that is under criticism for speaking at Graham’s recent law enforcement retreat. In his defense, Graham claimed that any claims that he or the Billy Graham Evangelical Association (BGEA), named after his father, is anti-LGBTQ is “just not true.” Just this month, Graham praised North Carolina Lt. Gov. Mark Robinson (R) — who said LGBTQ people are “filth” — for “having the guts to stand up and tell the truth,” he called for foreign nations to deny people with official gender-neutral markers on their passport, and the BGEA was named in a report as a group materially supporting proposed law further criminalizing LGBTQ people around the world. Yet Graham claims, “We are not anti-anybody. We love people enough to tell them the truth of God’s Word.” Maybe Mr. Graham needs a dictionary so he can understand the words "love" and "truth" a little better.
