Franklin Graham: Public schools are pushing LGBT history ‘down our throats’

Speaking on Fox News host Todd Starnes’ radio show this Thursday, Christian evangelist Franklin Graham praised a New Jersey mayor who is fighting against a state law that requires schools to teach LGBT history, saying that the directive is “an affront to God.”

“The mayor is absolutely right,” Graham said, referring to Barnegat Township mayor Alfonso Cirulli. “This is an affront to God and I don’t believe that the schools have a right to teach our children something that is an affront to God.”

“So the mayor is absolutely right and I back him 100 percent,” he continued. “God made us and created us, he made us male and female so that we can carry on the population, so that we have children and that we would increase, and homosexuality goes against God’s plan for the human race.”

If public schools are going to teach LGBT history, Graham says parents should keep their kids home.

“If the churches would just get behind this and begin to speak out, it would make a big difference,” he said. “We’re the majority and we’re having the minority push something down our throats that we don’t accept and we need to speak out and fight against this.”
