The Reverend Franklin Graham has been pretty outspoken about the recent Supreme Court decision regarding gay marriage across the country, and on Friday he appeared on Sean Hannity’s radio broadcast to discuss the issue and what could come from it.
The Reverend said that the United States has slowly been embracing a culture of sin and immorality, and that our people should take the situation very seriously because God takes sin seriously.
“I’m not surprised. Our country has been slipping every year further and further away from the God of the Bible — the foundation that our nation was built on. We’re slipping away from that.
And I believe that we need to do everything we can to warn people of the consequences of sin.
Homosexuality is sin.
Same-sex marriage is a sin against God.
Now, people who don’t believe in God don’t care about that, but at the same time, Sean, God is going to judge sinners, so I love them enough to warn them of the consequences of sin.
And I want everyone who’s listening — I’m not here to throw stones at you because you want to marry someone of the same sex — I just want to warn you, and I do this in love, that God will judge sin.
God takes sin very seriously. God cannot tolerate sin in his presence.
Lying is a sin, stealing is a sin, committing adultery [is a] sin.
We’re all sinners, Sean, and Franklin Graham is a sinner.”
