Franklin Graham: I Love Gay and Lesbian People but They Need to Repent

Outspoken Christian leader Franklin Graham wrote a Facebook post this week that referenced homosexual persecution and said the LGBT community needs to repent. Charisma News reports that Graham mentioned a recent act of ISIS brutality in which a gay man was thrown off a rooftop and then stoned to death. 


"A recent news report shows Islamists throwing gays off rooftops and then stoning them when they hit the ground. Does this sound like a peaceful religion to you, as the president has said?" Graham wrote. 


The President of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association then clarifies his stance on homosexuality, writing, “I do not support the gay and lesbian lifestyle--I believe homosexuality is a sin as the Bible teaches.


"I love gay and lesbian people and I want them to know that God loves them too, and He is willing and eager to forgive sin—all sin—however we must repent and turn from our sin and believe on the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ."
