Faithful America Petitions for Franklin Graham to be Removed from Samaritan’s Purse and BGEA Over Support for Trump

(Charisma News Archives)

Thousands have signed a petition calling for the termination of Franklin Graham from his positions at Samaritan’s Purse and at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

The reason?

His supposed encouragement of the Capitol riots by way of showing his support for former President Donald J. Trump.

The Faithful America petition likens Graham to “blasphemous preachers” who “must be held accountable for their deadly dishonesty.”

The assertive language expressed in the letter goes so far as to say Graham’s actions have soiled his family’s legacy.

“Graham gets away with his hatred and conspiracy-theories by hiding behind the humanitarian work of Samaritan’s Purse and his late father’s name. It’s time for Samaritan’s Purse and the c (BGEA) to realize that by propping up Franklin’s unchristian extremism, they are abandoning their Gospel missions, undermining democracy, and helping incite white-nationalist sedition.”

In a comment to the Associated Press, along with other faith leaders, Graham condemned the violence.

“I do not support violence from the right or the left,” he said. “Our country is in trouble. We need God’s healing and we need God’s help.”
