Donald Trump never could have become the president in 2016 without the support of Evangelical Christians. And Franklin Graham, the son of the legendary Billy Graham, was one of his most important backers.
Graham has shown some signs of wanting to protect his congregation. The Christian leader has worked hard to encourage his followers to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
But Graham showed his true stripes just the other day when it came to Conservatives making threats against school board members. According to the Evangelical, an FBI investigation into the threats equates to communism.
Graham wrote on his Facebook page, “It’s an ominous sign when the government uses its power to try and silence the voice of the people. That’s how communism works.”
The Evangelical leader continued:
“Anyone who speaks against communism or the goals of communism becomes the enemy. And we’re seeing this happen right in our own country. The Biden Administration, which bows to the radical progressive left, would like to silence parents who voice strong opinions against critical race theory and trans radicalism at school board meetings. Unbelievably, the National School Boards Association asked that parent protests at school board meetings be treated as possible acts of ‘domestic terrorism.’ This tactic of intimidation is meant to silence parents with views the Left doesn’t agree with.”
