    Rev. Franklin Graham Decision America Tour

    I just got back from the Denver stop. Very inspiring!

    I was surprised at how many people there were on a weekday. It was completely packed. The message was spot on: Christians have to engage with politics and make more decisions with an eye to biblical values instead of secular values.

    It was also not too long!

    If it comes to your state, you should attend.

    In our age there is no such thing as 'keeping out of politics.' All issues are political issues, and politics itself is a mass of lies, evasions, folly, hatred and schizophrenia.

    Make more decisions with an eye to biblical values?

    Oh great, that translates into lip service on abortion and more government spending in compromise to stop whatever cause is popular at the pulpit. How has that worked out so far?

    I'm sorry, but after seeing all his butt kissing to Trump in the name of God (which is ironic since Trump doesn't ask God for forgiveness), I'm a little bit disgusted with Graham. I see him more as a political pundit than a preacher.

    I didn't realize that. If true, it's disappointing.
    May we raise children who love the unloved things - the dandelion, the worm, the spiderlings.
    Children who sense the rose needs the thorn and run into rainswept days the same way they turn towards the sun...
    And when they're grown and someone has to speak for those who have no voice,
    may they draw upon that wilder bond, those days of tending tender things and be the one.

    Maybe it's just my way of looking at him when I read his facebook feed. He just really comes off a certain way to me.

    It isn't. Graham has publicly disassociated himself from the Republican Party (he is no longer a member) and says so at his rallies. He's clear about noting how the both parties have failed the country and that people who put their hope in Republicans are fooling themselves.

    His message is to become politically involved but detached from current political aims - such as those found in either party.

    For a butt-kisser, he really fell down on the job at the rally I attended. In fact, none of his remarks could be seen as favorable to Trump or any Republican candidate. They all fall far short of the standard he is discussing.

    But of course I was actually there and didn't get all my ideas from Facebook.

    Makes sense. Why would he alienate people from his message of Salvation (assuming that since haven't heard him speak) - and potentially from the Samaritan's purse foundation- by affiliating with any group politically.

    I don't read or follow him a lot but we participate in Operation Christmas Child through Samaritans Purse. I really love it and have enjoyed listening to him speak about it and the children it serves.

    Thing is I'm subscribed to his FB feed (but I don't know why). He's asking the pope to "build a bridge" to Trump. The pope's spokes people have sense then said they're not necessarily attacking Trump and that they're keeping an open mind (not knowing all the info). Graham also had Ben Carson on his page probably a day or two after the Chicago cancelled rally. He's posted stuff about things "being great again." To me, that sounds like Trump's spokesman.
