The Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of renowned evangelist Billy Graham and president of international relief organization Samaritan’s Purse, took to Facebook this week to let his followers know that Olympic gold medalist and “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star Bruce Jenner’s transformation into a woman named Caitlyn will not change who he is on the inside or improve his relationship with his children.

Graham referred to the recent Vanity Fair interview where Jenner revealed his new identity. Jenner’s son, Burt, spoke to the publication about his rocky relationship with his father and his hope that his transformation to Caitlyn will improve it.

“At the end of the day there’s no way I can get around it. I am ungodly thankful and I feel very fortunate to not have had my father in my life. … I learned how to open doors and shake hands and look people in the eye. Things that my dad never would taught me,” said Burt to Vanity Fair.

“I have high hopes that Caitlyn is a better person than Bruce. I’m very much looking forward to that,” he added.

In a Facebook post, however, Graham said Bruce Jenner’s physical transformation will not do anything to improve the character of Caitlyn.

“I have news for them — changing the outside doesn’t change the inside. No man-made modification can fix what’s wrong with the heart. Only God can fix the human heart. If we ask for His forgiveness and accept by faith His Son, Jesus Christ, He will wipe the slate clean,” Graham wrote Tuesday.
