Franklin Graham Sends Strong Message to LGBT Community Suffering Deadly Persecution

Franklin Graham seems to be growing more outspoken by the day. The bold evangelist just came out with a strong message to the gay and lesbian community. 

"A recent news report shows Islamists throwing gays off rooftops and then stoning them when they hit the ground. Does this sound like a peaceful religion to you, as the president has said?" Graham asked in a Facebook post. 

Graham is referring to a CNN report

"Three men on top of a building, faces covered in black balaclavas, stand on either side of their victim, while a fourth seems to be taking a photo or video.

Their victim is thrown off the building. In the last photograph, he is seen face down, surrounded by a small crowd of men, most carrying weapons, some with rocks in their hands. The caption reads "stoned to death."

The victim was brutally killed because he was accused of being gay.

"There are at least half a dozen documented cases of men being similarly killed by ISIS. What's even more sickening for Nour, a gay Syrian man, is the onlookers' reaction." 

Graham is clear: He does not support the gay and lesbian lifestyle. He is clear that he believes homosexuality is a sin as the Bible teaches. 

"I love gay and lesbian people," he wrote, "and I want them to know that God loves them too, and He is willing and eager to forgive sin—all sin—however we must repent and turn from our sin and believe on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ."
