Franklin Graham Leaves GOP Over Planned Parenthood Funding

Apparently cancer screenings offend him.
Franklin Graham Leaves GOP Over Planned Parenthood Funding

Franklin Graham is so offended by cancer screenings and medical help for needy women that he's quitting the GOP.

Don't let the door slap you in the ass on the way out, Frankie! And by the way, if you're that offended by cancer screenings and help for poor women, you and Trump deserve each other.

Evangelist Franklin Graham has announced he is abandoning the Republican Party in disgust over the move by the GOP-led Congress last week to pass a budget that Graham said was “wasteful” and provided funding for Planned Parenthood, which he compared to the Nazis.

Graham has previously said he has no faith in any political party, but his apparent renunciation of his Republican affiliation is an indication of anger on the right and the strong interest many disaffected evangelicals have shown in populist outsiders such as Donald Trump.

Graham himself has expressed admiration for Trump, the surprise front-runner in the Republican presidential field, and has voiced support for some of Trump’s more controversial positions — such as his call to ban Muslims from the U.S. — which have drawn condemnation from more mainstream evangelical leaders.

Christians who support Donald Trump aren't Christians at all. They're greedy, hateful, power-hungry people who demonstrate the sinful nature of man at every turn. Enjoy your time in hell, Frankie.
