Evangelical soapbox speaker, Franklin Graham, has gone off the deep end once again. He has to keep defending his god, Donald Trump. Since Trump is off put by the COVID death count, so Graham is too.
This time he posted the classic rebuttal of covid 19 deaths. The argument goes something like this, “that’s a lot of death but more people have died to… [insert something awful]”
Graham, like most christians, lacks reason and logic. It was just in 2016, when some Christian missionaries were killed in foreign lands by terrorists that Graham went on social media saying we need to vote in a christian president that will defend our people from the muslims who declared war on us. Imagine if someone said then, “well it’s only 20 people, I mean we lose more in an hour from cigarettes… let’s keep this in perspective.”
After 9/11 around 2,000-3,000 people died. No one sat around saying, “well more people die of car accidents each year…” We’re having 9/11 death counts every few days. If COVID was a designed disease released by the Taliban, you bet Graham and Trump would take it seriously. But as it is a natural event, and Trump took an early stand that it “wasn’t a big deal,” Graham and Trump Team have to remain in step with their master (Trump).
Graham is not able to reason, nor think properly. He can’t see clearly yet he leads millions. In my engagement with his followers, I have time and time again attempted reasonable discourse, and each time they walk out on me. All I do is respond to their emotion with reason, logic and their own bible. Each time they leave the discussion.
Look guys, if you can’t face your own bible, in the light of reason and logic, maybe it’s time to burn it out of your lives and find your own path to a deity.
