Franklin Graham: 'Obama shook fist at God by supporting same-sex marriage'

Topics: Political News and commentaries

Following Barack Obama's politically-inspired announcement of his support for same-sex marriage, evangelist Franklin Graham equated Obama's political flip flop to "shaking his fist at God" (emphasis mine):

"On Tuesday my state of North Carolina became the 31st state to approve a constitutional amendment defining marriage as being between a man and a woman. While the move to pass amendments defining marriage is relatively new, the definition of marriage is 8,000 years old and was defined not by man, but by God Himself.

In changing his position from that of Senator/candidate Obama, President Obama has, in my view, shaken his fist at the same God who created and defined marriage. It grieves me that our president would now affirm same-sex marriage, though I believe it grieves God even more.

The institution of marriage should not be defined by presidents or polls, governors or the media. The definition was set long ago and changing legislation or policy will never change God's definition. This is a sad day for America. May God help us."

Franklin Graham's comment is especially pertinent given that Obama had the chutzpah to say he based his decision on Jesus and the Bible.

Meanwhile, I sit here wondering what's next in Barack Obama's ongoing attacks against the Christian Church.
