Franklin Graham: Celebrating Pride Month is like ‘setting a month aside to celebrate murder’

In a post to his Facebook page this Saturday, evangelist Franklin Graham lamented the fact that “Pride has gone mainstream,” saying that the entire month of June was “set aside to celebrate a lifestyle that God defines as sin.”

“It’s like setting a month aside to celebrate lying, adultery, or murder (which includes abortion), or anything else that God says is sin,” Graham wrote. “The Bible also tells us that God hates pride. Shame on the nation that celebrates and glorifies sin.”

Graham says that while everyone is a sinner, Pride Month is especially egregious because it involves “celebrating and taking pride in our sin.”

“If you are willing to turn from your sin and put your faith and trust in Jesus Christ, God will forgive you and give you a new life. Now that’s something to celebrate!”
