Hurray for Franklin Graham!

I am most grateful to Franklin Graham for expressing what most of us who voted for President Trump feel.  I am embarrassed for his family that Christianity Today, the magazine his father founded, has publicly come out against our president.  What a bad impression they are giving to the world!  Whatever happened to the scripture that admonishes us not to touch God's anointed?  Since those of us who feel the magazine has way overstepped its' calling and purpose don't have a voice, I say hurray for Franklin Graham, who does, and who is using it!

When asked about Christianity Today's condemnation of the president and their declaration that he should be impeached, Mr. Graham pointed out Trump's accomplishments.         
"Look at all the president has accomplished in a very short time. 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 to ignore that, to say it doesn't count? 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? Christianity Today feels he should be removed from office because of false accusations that the president emphatically denies."
