Graham Praises MI Library For Banning LGBTQ Books

Only church certified and state approved books will be allowed.   All others will be burned.   No access to other information.   No access to other ideas.    When these groups who are a minority cannot win the people with their ideas, they insist only the information they approve of be allowed.   We have seen the attempts for decades to outlaw science books, biology books, geology books, and all information that disagrees with the Christian bible.    Same with sexual education, it disagrees with the minority religious view so must not be taught.  This is a very dark road we are travelling down; it needs to stop.   Hugs

Posted today to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:

Parents and concerned citizens in Jamestown, Michigan, decided they weren’t going to stand for the indoctrination of their children at the local public library, and they weren’t going to pay for it with their taxpayer money!

The local library featured sexually explicit LGBT books such as “Gender Queer: A Memoir” in a June Pride display, and the library staff refused to remove them from the library even after meetings with the board.

But the local residents didn’t give up—they mounted a campaign to stop funding the library with taxpayer money, and it worked! I congratulate them for standing firm with their convictions and working hard to bring the needed change.

  1. Scottie, for all the good Graham’s Samaritan Purse does to help people in need, he detracts from that notoriety with his rather notorious statements being critical of groups of people, be it Muslims or the LGBTQ+ community. When Religion is inclusive it is at its best, but when it excludes it is at its absolute worst. This is not the first time and it won’t be the last when he puts his foot in his mouth. Keith

    1. Hello Keith. I agree that when religion is inclusive it is at its best. However I have to disagree some with the idea that Graham’s Samaritan Purse really does that much good. Based on what I have read he uses that “charity” to raise money and spread his religious hatreds via his biblical message. I was shocked when he was paid by Ney York state to help out with the rising Covid crisis and was allowed to make people sign pledges that they were not LGBTQ+ and that reenforced LGBTQ+ bigotry and hate.

      While the organization has been applauded for delivering an overflow hospital for Mount Sinai’s overcrowded Manhattan facilities in a matter of days, it has raised eyebrows because of a public request for “Christian” volunteers and a policy that volunteers adhere to its 11-point Statement of Faith.

      Ten of the 11 items pertain broadly to doctrinal issues, including one that “human life is sacred from conception to its natural end,” but only one singles out a class of people.

      “We believe God’s plan for human sexuality is to be expressed only within the context of marriage, that God created man and woman as unique biological persons made to complete each other,” item nine of the Statement of Faith reads. “God instituted monogamous marriage between male and female as the foundation of the family and the basic structure of human society. For this reason, we believe that marriage is exclusively the union of one genetic male and one genetic female.”

    1. Hello Ali. When religious groups get into positions of power where they have the authority to demand people live by their rules they will abuse it. They are on a mission from their god, who they believe is the highest authority. If what they believe their god says conflicts with civil laws, they will follow their god beliefs. The Islamic Taliban is an example of this, and these people like Graham are simply the Christian Taliban. Look at what is happening in Florida right now, or the issue of abortion where the religious right tried to force a 10 year old little girl to bring to term a rape pregnancy that most likely would have killed her. A baby giving birth to a baby. That is what religious control brings. Hugs
