葛福臨支持暴力的一面

But if you think Franklin Graham is an advocate of nonviolence who opposes Christians engaging in violence and deadly conflict you would be mistaken. When Jerry Falwell, the founder of the old Moral Majority and Liberty University, boldly proclaimed, “God is pro-war,” Franklin Graham didn’t object. To the contrary, at the time he was in full agreement. While Graham has stated, “I don’t advocate war,” he was quick to qualify that claim by adding, “it’s important to support our government.” And he specifically meant “support our government” in bloody conflict.

Graham stood shoulder to shoulder with the other well-known evangelical leaders who helped guide the overwhelming 87 percent of all white evangelical Christians in the United States to support the attack on Iraq 2003, an effort not one church body outside the U.S. supported. Franklin Graham was not echoing the Prince of Peace when he said: “Let’s use the weapons we have, the weapons of mass destruction if need be and destroy the enemy” (CNN, September 14, 2001).
