Rev. Graham: ‘The Gloves Are Off … The Radical Left’ Is Trying ‘To Crush All Who Hold to a Biblical Worldview’ By Michael W. Chapman for CNS News
In a commentary about how the liberal media attacked Karen Pence for teaching at a Christian school, evangelical leader Franklin Graham said the “progressive” left is poisoning the nation and seeking to “harshly punish and completely silence” those who adhere to a “Biblical worldview.”
“The hostility, bias, and ridicule of Biblical morality is blatant and obvious,” he said. “I promise that I will raise my voice each and every day against such injustice and wicked behavior.”
In the piece, We Must Not Remain Silent, published in the March issue of Decision magazine, Rev. Graham explains that Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Mike Pence, used to teach at an evangelical Christian school (for 12 years) and had decided to return to teaching at the institution. However, when the liberal press found out, they excoriated her and the school because it had the temerity to actually teach traditional Christian morality.
The Immanuel Christian School in Virginia affirms “traditional, Biblical marriage between one man and one woman, with clear definitions of sexual identity according to Scripture,” said the reverend. “These are the solid, moral foundations that have undergirded civilizations for millennia.”
The Washington Post exclaimed, “Karen Pence, America’s second lady, is teaching at a Virginia Religious School that bans LGBTQ students and employees.” The BBC complained, “Vice President’s wife to teach at anti-LGBT school” and CNN huffed, “Karen Pence to teach at school that bans gay students, teachers.”
“The hostility, bias, and ridicule of Biblical morality is blatant and obvious,” said Graham. The liberal media focused solely on “the fact that the sexual mores of the school were not aligned with the new immoral mantra of the radical left.”
