In reaction to news that the Obama administration will spend up to $8.4 million a year for transgender military personnel who want gender reassignment treatments or sex-change surgery, Christian evangelist Franklin Graham said he was "disgusted" and that "this is the kind of immoral garbage President Obama and his administration are allowing to be put in place in our country."

"[W]hen I read about the government spending $8.4 million of taxpayers’ money a year—starting today—for things like gender reassignment and hormone therapy for military personnel, I’m disgusted! Aren’t you?" said Rev. Graham in an Oct. 3 post on Facebook

"This is the kind of immoral garbage President Obama and his administration are allowing to be put in place in our country," said the evangelist.

"$8.4 million a year—with all the things our military needs—can you believe that?" he said.  "Things like this need to be stopped."

"It just shows you how morally warped our politicians have become," said Rev. Graham.

Franklin Graham, 64, is the son of pastor Billy Graham, one of the most influential and well-known evangelists of the last 60 years. Franklin Graham oversees the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) and the international Christian relief group Samaritan's Purse. He also regularly comments on current affairs on radio, television, and in print.
