Franklin Graham Slams Magazine His Father Founded For This Shameful Article About Trump

(Tea Party PAC) – On Friday, celebrated evangelist Franklin Graham son of the legendary Billy Graham, slammed a magazine that his father had founded for declaring that Trump should be impeached.

He revealed that not only was he a fan of President Donald Trump, but so was the late Billy Graham.

“My father knew Donald Trump, he believed in Donald Trump, and he voted for Donald Trump,” Graham wrote on Facebook early Friday. “He believed that Donald J. Trump was the man for this hour in history for our nation.”

On Thursday, the magazine Christianity Today, founded by Billy Graham, supported the impeachment against Donald Trump.

Since “they invoked my father’s name (I suppose to try to bring legitimacy to their statements),” Rev. Graham wrote, “I feel it is important for me to respond.”

“Yes, my father Billy Graham founded Christianity Today; but no, he would not agree with their opinion piece. In fact, he would be very disappointed,” Graham said, noting that it was this misappropriation of his father’s legacy that inspired him to reveal who “America’s pastor” had voted for.

The younger Graham did not hold back from offering his own two cents on the impeachment, which he called “politically motivated, 100% partisan.”

“For Christianity Today to side with the Democrat Party in a totally partisan attack on the President of the United States is unfathomable,” Graham wrote. “Christianity Today failed to acknowledge that not one single Republican voted with the Democrats to impeach the President.”

“I know a number of Republicans in Congress, and many of them are strong Christians,” he declared. “If the President were guilty of what the Democrats claimed, these Republicans would have joined with the Democrats to impeach him. But the Democrats were not even unanimous—two voted against impeachment and one voted present.”

“This impeachment was politically motivated, 100% partisan. Why would Christianity Today choose to take the side of the Democrat left whose only goal is to discredit and smear the name of a sitting president?” Graham asked. “They want readers to believe the Democrat leadership rather than believe the President of the United States.”

Next, Graham offered a tally of some of the president’s accomplishments, posing the rhetorical question as to whether or not the magazine had thought about this when they penned their piece.

“Look at all the President has accomplished in a very short time,” he wrote. “The economy of our nation is the strongest it has been in 50 years, ISIS & the caliphate have been defeated, and the President has renegotiated trade deals to benefit all Americans.”

“The list of accomplishments is long, but for me as a Christian, the fact that he is the most pro-life president in modern history is extremely important — and Christianity Today wants us ignore that, to say it doesn’t count?” he continued. “The President has been a staunch defender of religious freedom at home and around the world — and Christianity Today wants us to ignore that? Also the President has appointed conservative judges in record number — and Christianity Today wants us to ignore that?”

The evangelical leader then moved into discuss the real motivation behind Christianity Today’s hit piece on the president.

“Christianity Today said it’s time to call a spade a spade,” he wrote. “The spade is this — Christianity Today has been used by the left for their political agenda. It’s obvious that Christianity Today has moved to the left and is representing the elitist liberal wing of evangelicalism.”

“Is President Trump guilty of sin?” Graham concludes. “Of course he is, as were all past presidents and as each one of us are, including myself. Therefore, let’s pray for the President as he continues to lead the affairs of our nation.”

  1. To John Smith: you display your ignorance with great ease but you need to get your facts straight before you speak! President Trump is not the one lying it is all the haters such as you that have it wrong! From what I see he is the first president in a long long time who has made promises and kept them and truly worked for America and does not take a penny in salary! No one has ever done that! Go Trump in 2020 they do not have anyone who can come close

  2. So are you saying that Hillary and the Democratic Party would be more supportive of our Christian beliefs? Are you claiming to be a Christian? Donald Trump and Mike Pence are in place as the Lord’s choice at “such a time as this”. If you can’t appreciate the reason that they are here at this time for supporting our Christian beliefs, then you are truly blind.

  3. Thank you pastor Graham for speaking out against the evil these leftist radicals are spreading. I pray that their attempt to divide our country will backfire on them come November, 2020. We are a nation founded on Godly principles and those who are out to destroy our constitution and belief in God will fail.

  4. In 1973 when Roe vs Wade was decided the Supreme Court consisted of 7 republican nominated justices. The affirmative decision was 7-2. One of the 2 opposing judges was nominated by President John F Kennedy. The president was Nixon. Currently there are 5 republican nominated justices. Decisions only require 5 justices. No one party owns abortion and no one party is all Christian, conservative, or liberal. Fear and fact need to be balanced before democracy is extinguished.

  5. Thank you Rev Graham for standing up for Christianity. Lets also remember Saint Padre Pio’s of Pietrelcina , Italy words,” The rosary is our weapon in modern times”. God bless ,Rita

  6. Thank God for Franklin Graham, and the eloquence with which he set the record straight. This article from hell in a magazine that has striven to lead us to heaven is a sacrilege. .,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

  7. Some of the most insane comments ever from you teabaggers. Trump has absolutely
    NOTHING to do with Christianity. He has yet to demonstrate any behavior that
    comes close that of a Christian. And yet, you pretend he is. Attacking children, widows, and the memories of the dead is not the behavior of an honorable man.
    Let alone the most powerful man in the world. You people are deluded.

    • And people who live in glass houses, shouldn’t throw stones. I’m so glad to know you have the ability to see in someone else’s heart and soul and can declare YOUR belief that someone other than yourself is guilty of fault.

      You are no better than the rest of us, and no better than Donald Trump.

    • So there you go making judgement as to whether the POTUS is a Christian or not. Sounds like you must know exactly what a Christian should do to make YOU believe he is. I guess you will find out when you stand before the Father on His judgment seat. No one is perfect except Jesus, the Son of God, and the only way you, me or anyone else can call ourselves a Christian is to accept Jesus into our hearts and ask Him to save us from our sins! Jesus is the way, the truth and the life! No one will come to the Father except through Him (Christ the Lord)! There is no way for any one of us to know whether Donald J Trump is a true Christian, only the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit know. So judge yourself before you judge anyone else.

    • August 11, 2016:“Pray for me. I pray for you,” Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told an audience of 700 evangelical leaders in Florida on Thursday. “This will be an election that will go down in the history books. For evangelicals, for Christians, for everybody of religion. This may be the most important election that our country has ever had. So go out and spread the word. And once I get in, I will do my thing that I do very well. And I figure it is probably, maybe the only way I’m going to get to heaven. So I better do a good job.”

    • Trump doesn’t usually attack until after he is attacked .Furthermore Trump has helped Children , Widows and all of America .

  8. Praise the Lord for Franklin Graham. I stand with him as many more Christians do.
    We are at a crisis in our country and about to be taken over by leftists, socialists and
    God only knows what to undo all our founders set up to make us a Republic strong in God and His direction in the affairs of our nation.

  9. This Christian totally agrees with F Graham and not the magazine article. Seems to me the blindness is affecting some who call themselves Christian but who perhaps don’t believe the Bible is the truth. God, please help your children to rely on Your Word and not on our fallen culture.

  10. So, so glad that Franklin Graham came out and told the truth about this shocking article in Christianity today!! I can think of no real Christian who would demean our President so!! NOT EVEN AN ATHIEIST IF THEY KNEW THE TRUE FACTS.

  11. Thank you so much….We all made mistakes when younger. The President has been a good leader. He has made good changes in the life. It is unfair what was said about him. I sounded like ” the pot calling the kettle black”, Mr Graham was right is setting them straight. I support the President. He has done a fantastic job for the country .

  12. Thank you for your disapproval of Christianity Today. I was horrified to think that they had actually gone to the left and everything they said was untrue. You are so right, none of us is without sin in one form or another but that is not a reason to remove him from office. President Trump is the best President this Nation has had in many, many years. He had a hard road to travel trying to undo all the damage Obama did in trying to destroy our country. Obama was closing military bases and putting the U.S. in a dangerous path that we would not be able to defend ourselves. Thank God for Trump! He has built our military up again and it is stronger than before.

  13. Absolutely spot on!! Thank you Franklin for pointing to the facts. And shame on the author of this article for using this magazine as a platform to voice their personal opinion, you do not represent most decent folks.

  14. Thank you for writing this Franklin. Totally right. Christianity Today does not represent Christians. Close the magazine or call it something else. My blood is boiling as my mom would say.

  15. Franklin Graham is right on point here, President Trump is the best President in modern History, and the Democrats are worshiping Satan, following the Communist Left’s policy prescriptions, and Saul Alinski’s methods. All subscribers to that rag should cancel their subscriptions immediately.

  16. I ran off a cliff in Okinawa training for Vietnam. I had a full field pack on my back. I fell a long long way. A hand came out and caught me and laid me down on the ground.
    The field pack landed in a ditch just wide enough that my shoulders broke my fall.
    I was saved by my savior. Praise the Lord.
    People have a choice. I hope they make the right choice.

  17. God has nothing to what this magazine published agsinst president Trump. The magazine staff and reporters are now infected with Trump Deranged Syndrome. Shame on you guys I am a Christian too but I do not involve on politics. Just like Christ’s last supper, we have a Judas tribe in our midst.

  18. I liked your father I liked his word, his resolve to take the story of Jesus to the masses.
    I’m not sure I agree that he brought Christianity to our country.

  19. so true. thank you, Franklin.
    just another strictly partisan hit job whose only mission is to marginalize
    POTUS. they can’t beat him even with
    fraudulent votes.

  20. Christianity Today does not represent the true Bible believing Born-Again Christians in America. Pastor Franklin Graham is absolutely correct when he said Christianity Today has moved to the left and is representing the elitist liberal wing of evangelicalism.

  21. Thank you Rev. Graham for setting the record straight on the magazine article’s betrayal and highlighting just a few of DJT’s accomplishments. Trump 2020!

  22. If the leftist liberals have even infiltrated our Christian Magazines, the very one that Billy Graham founded, it’s time for people to rise up and take note of what’s happening. All it takes for evil to win is for good people to stand by and do nothing!!!!!!

  23. It’s obvious that the liberal left will stop at nothing to defeat POTUS. Thank God he won 2016. Thank God he has such a supportive family and friends. The war on Christianity is in full swing. Thank you Franklin!

    • Yes the religious manipulator that screws gullible idiots like you to pay his million dollar salary. There are no gods, just unscientific illiterate idiots like you.

  24. Franklin, I e-mailed you some of my husband’s poetry and I believe they speak to “such a time as this that we are in”. If you did not receive the poems please let me know and I will resend them to you
    “The Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord will make His face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. The Lord will lift up His countenance upon you
    and give you His peace, His ‘Shalom’ peace, not just for today but also for all of your tomorrow’s.” Numbers 6:24-26

    “AMERICA BLESS GOD”, “GOD BLESS AMERICA”, “GOD BLESS THE PERSIDENT OF THE UNTIED STATES”, “GOD BLESS ISRAEL”, GOD BLESS OUR VETERANS AND MILITARY”, also the most difficult one of them all, “GOD BLESS OUR ENEMIES”.

    God bless you and yours this special Christmas time. Muriel

  25. I agree Rev Billy Graham in night way would approve if what the magazine has printed!
    We all need to pray that Christianity will return and bless our nation
    Our country has turned its back on teachings of the Bible and God is angry God help us all!!

  26. thank you Rev. Graham for standing behind our good president, cannot understand their readoning for siding with rhe democrats.

  27. Glad to see the rebuttal by Franklin Graham as the article seemed to fly in the face of Billy Graham! Glad it was cleared up, how did this new breed take the reins?

  28. Christianity Today. A wolf in sheep’s clothing has been exposed. Satan is the god of a lot of people and organizations in this world. Democrats hate God and hate God’s people. Socialism is a godless society. Thank you Franklin Graham for calling a spade a spade.

  29. In over 50 years of following “politics”, ive never seen such blatant garbage presented as…forgive me.. “facts”!… when is Pelosi going to have articles of treason presented?? The defiance of the Logan Act alone is treason!! God help us!

  30. Franklin has expressed himself in as usual, a very direct and clear meaningful way about the betrayal of the magazine editorial attitude toward conservatism and the Christian faith!!
