Anti-gay preacher Franklin Graham furious White House was lit in rainbow pride colors

LGBTI history will now be taught in California schiools

It’s been more than a week since The White House was lit with rainbow colors to celebrate nationwide marriage equality.

But Franklin Graham is still fuming.

The president and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, which was founded by his father in 1950, is blasting President Barack Obama for the 26 June gesture shortly after the US Supreme Court ruled that same-sex couples have the right to marry in all 50 US states.

‘He had the gall to disgrace the White House by lighting it up with the gay pride rainbow colors to celebrate,’ Graham wrote in a Facebook post on Tuesday (7 July).

‘This is arrogantly flaunting sinful behavior in the face of Almighty God. My advice? He might want to have some extra lightning rods installed on the roof of the White House.’

Graham takes Obama to task for his relatively recent evolution on same-sex marriage.

‘A lot has changed in three short years!’ he writes. ‘Just three years ago, the President was on record as holding to the biblical definition of marriage. Now he can’t say enough about his support for the LGBT agenda.

Graham has made a series of anti-gay statements in recent years including his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin and his regime’s banning so-called ‘homosexual propaganda.’

He has also urged Christians to boycott LGBTI-friendly businesses, said gay marriage is sending the US ‘off a moral cliff,’ spoke out against gays being allowed in Boy Scouts and accused Marvel Comics of trying to brainwash young people into accepting a homosexual ‘lifestyle’ after a character in the popular comic book series X-Men was revealed to be gay.
