Ninety-three-year-old Billy Graham released a statement, and a full page ad, last week on the proposed marriage amendment in North Carolina to Constitutionally ban same-sex marriage, civil unions, domestic partnerships, and, well, probably anything that might be beneficial to committed gay couples in that state.
Yeah, in the name of God, the aged bigot has spoken. At least, I think so. See, Graham doesn't appear in public much because he's NINETY-THREE. This makes me wonder if this is actually his statement, or his statement according to his wingnut children.
Remember, it was Graham’s daughter, Anne Graham Lotz, who said God would smite North Carolina if the Constitution wasn't amended to discriminate. So, I'm thinking Billy's sitting in a rocker somewhere, drinking sweet tea, and his batshit crazy daughter, who has nothing better to do than strike fear in the hearts of the overtly religious, isn't behind this mess.
Note to Anne Lotz: STFU. Keep your "religion"--and I put it in quotes because, while you may disagree, Hate is not God-like--out of the North Carolina state Constitution. Religion has no place in the laws of that state, any state, or this country.
You are free to be whatever religion you choose, and say all kinds of delusional things, so why don't you just sit back, shellac your hair, and let gay people, gay couples, have the same rights, privileges and freedoms as their straight counterparts.
And, for God's sake, stop using your father to spew your filth.
