Franklin Graham: Seems Like Government Response to Virus is About Control

Todd Starnes

Franklin Graham, the head of Samaritan’s Purse, says he is concerned about the extension of stay-at-home orders in mostly states ruled by Democrats.

The noted evangelist was bothered by a CNN story that pondered what would happen if a vaccine for the Chinese Virus was never found.

Here we go again. Another headline by CNN to try to put fear in the minds of readers. What happens if a coronavirus vaccine is never developed? The ‘what-ifs’ could be endless. What if the sky fell tomorrow? There are a lot of hypotheticals being thrown out there that are intended to scare people,” Graham said.

“It’s becoming more obvious to people that the response of some in the government is not just about protecting lives, but it’s about control,” he wrote on Facebook. “Never before in our history have those who are well been quarantined rather than those who are sick.”

Graham said he did not want to minimize the fact that the coronavirus is dangerous or that people need to take precautions and personal responsibility.

“But we also need to be cautious before we say yes to every ban proposed and agree to anything that we think might help protect us from the virus, to make sure that we’re not letting go of some of our constitutional rights,” he said. “Our response to the coronavirus pandemic could greatly affect our future and our freedoms.”
