Aggressors of a feather: Bryan Fischer thanks God for Franklin Graham's anti-gay hostility

by Jeremy Hooper

Congratulations, Franklin Graham. Your exceedingly hostile rhetoric about gay people is not only besmirching, perhaps permanently, the legacy of your father, but it's also earning applause from the most extreme voices of the anti-gay movement:

Billy Graham used to largely avoid the so-called "culture war," earning praise from every modern American president for his unique role in American politics and Christianity. Franklin Graham, the president and CEO of his daddy's eponymous association, is carrying on the torch by pleasing a man who's literally called for gay people to be criminalized and then rehabbed like drug addicts. And unfortunately for the elder Graham, memory is a fickle thing. Twenty more years of Frankin's leadership, and the public just might start viewing Billy's decades of work, once regarded as a beacon of light to many, as a shady shadow that besmirches the body politic much more than ever illuminated it.
