Commenting on a bigoted, anti-Christian commentary against Vice President Mike Pence by New York Times columnist Frank Bruni, evangelist Franklin Graham described Bruni's remarks as "slanderous" and "vile," and an "attack on all of us who believe in God and His Son, Jesus Christ."
In the commentary, Bruni, who is openly homosexual and a militant promoter of the LGBT agenda, smears Vice President Pence as a "holy terror," a "bigot," a "liar," and "cruel." Bruni also Mock's Pence's Christianity, claiming that Pence believes "he's on a mission from God" with a "determination to mold the entire nation in the shape of his own faith, a regressive, repressive version of Christianity. Trade Tump for Pence and you go from kleptocracy to theocracy."
Bruni presents zero evidence to back up his tawdry claims.
In response, in an Aug. 8 post on Facebook, Rev. Franklin Graham said, "The New York Times published a slanderous, vile op-ed piece about Vice President Mike Pence."
"They were specifically attacking his faith, which really is an attack on all of us who believe in God and His Son, Jesus Christ," said Rev. Graham. "I am disappointed that the New York Times would stoop so low. I’ve never seen such hatred poured out against such a good man."
"Vice President Pence is a dedicated public servant who is doing an exemplary job for our nation," said the reverend. "Attacks like this against him and the Lord that He serves should remind us all to keep him in our prayers because he not only represents our country, but all who hold a deep and sincere faith in God."
"Pray for Vice President Pence, his wife Karen, and their entire family, that God would put a hedge of protection around them," said Rev. Graham.
The Federalist described the attack on Pence by the New York Times and Bruni as "anti-Christian Bigotry, Plain and Simple." The Resurgent's Erick Erickson has explained that "Frank Bruni wants Christians punished and put out of business."
