Franklin Graham: If You Disagree With Facebook’s LGBT Views, They Call It Hate Speech

Facebook has apologized for imposing a 24-hour ban on Franklin Graham over a post they deemed as a violation of their hate speech regulations. In other words, Facebook is trying to save face after they were caught — yet again — censoring an Evangelical Christian.
In 2016 Graham had written a post in support of North Carolina’s bathroom bill — legislation that would ban men who identify as women from using the ladies room. Click here to read our original report.
The Charlotte Observer reports the post violated Facebook’s policy on “dehumanizing language and excluding people based on sexual orientation, race and other factors.”
A spokesperson for the social media giant told the newspaper the ban was a mistake and they will personally apologize to the administrator of Graham’s page.
The bigger issue is why the Facebook overlords were snooping around Graham’s page in the first place.
“I think it was just really a personal attack toward me,” Graham said on Fox News Channel. “It just came out of nowhere. It just came out of left field. All of a sudden we got a notification that we’re blocked from something back in 2016.”
Specifically, Facebook is targeting any person who supports a traditional view of marriage and human sexuality. That’s why so many Christians — including myself — have been punished.
“The problem with Facebook is sexual orientation,” Graham said. “If you disagree with their position on sexual orientation then you could be classified as hate speech, or that you are a racist. And this is a problem. And the Bible is truth and I would hope they would look to the bible and get some instruction from God’s word.”
Graham said that he gladly accepted Facebook’s apology — because it’s the Christian thing to do.
“As Christians we don’t back down and we don’t change who we are and what we say and what we do. We represent the King of Kings and Lord of Lords Jesus Christ. And Jesus said I am the way the truth and the life, and no man comes to the father but by me. All truth is in the Lord Jesus Christ, and I urge Facebook, and for Christians, to stand on God’s word and His truth,” he said.
