Loud-mouthed evangelist Franklin Graham prays RBG’s ‘Eyes would be opened to the truth of Scripture’ regarding her supportive stance on gay marriage. The wing nut doesn’t fall far from the tree, apparently. Franklin is Billy Graham’s son. Billy is a famous televangelist who, at 96, is still preaching.
Ruth Bader Ginsburg (the Notorious RBG), 82, is the first Jewish woman to serve on the SCOTUS. She’s been there for over two decades and has had a hand in deciding some of the most influential cases of my lifetime. RBG may also be the first SCOTUS justice to officiate gay weddings. But, according to Graham, her eyes are clouded by… could it be… SATAN!! All because she has the remarkable idea that people are people and all people should have equal protection under the law.
In a presumptuous effort to save RGB’s soul (not to mention get his own homophobic, mouth-breathing way), Idiotic RFG (Rev. Franklin Graham) decided to “pray” for her on Facebook. Because even God has a Facebook page, amiright?! His prayer:
“Those who support same-sex marriage consider her [RGB] an ally in their fight to toss God’s Holy Word aside. … let’s pray that Justice Ginsburg’s eyes would be opened to the truth of Scripture and that she would not be deceived by the arguments of those who seek to impose their ‘new morality’ on our nation.”
Well. How nice that RFG thinks his morality is better than RGB’s (or anyone else’s for that matter). He also called Justice Sonia Sotomayor “misguided” and prayerfully added that Justice Elena Kagan should “see the danger of deciding to go against God’s law and standards.” Hmmm… Sounds a tad bit like a threat, no?
Lest those SCOTUS justices who oppose gay marriage become tainted by the “misguided” sinners with whom the work, RFG also pray for Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito that they would continue to “stand as a voice of truth and wisdom.”
You see, Idiotic RFG has the “misguided” opinion that legalizing gay marriage will have a “profound impact…on Bible-believing Christians in this country.” Right. After all, with the U.S. divorce rate over 50% when gay marriage is illegal, legalizing it just might… do absolutely flipping nothing.
Even some of RFG’s Facebook cronies (who’ve given him roughly 1.4M “Likes”) brought up the fact of separation of church and state in the Constitution and the oddly missing reference to same-sex marriage in the Bible. Oh, I know where it went! A bookbinder somewhere must’ve been offended by the reference and, feeling their religious freedom was being quashed, left out that section. Or maybe, it just wasn’t there. Ever.
RGB’s comments on the subject in an April hearing pretty much answer RFG’s “misguided” claim:
“All of the incentives, all of the benefits that marriage affords would still be available. So you’re not taking away anything from heterosexual couples. They would have the very same incentive to marry, all the benefits that come with marriage that they do now.”
It appears the majority of Americans concur with Notorious RGB. A recent Gallup poll stated that 60% of the nation’s citizens think it’s high time to legalize same-sex marriage. This is an all-time high level of support.
Meanwhile, my homie RGB did the right thing and married a gay male couple this past weekend. Go RGB!
