Franklin Graham weighs in on ‘flawed’ Trump – two worse nightmares come to mind

Franklin Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham and president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, has weighed in on the recent Donald Trump controversy by making it clear that neither the comments made by Trump nor the “godless progressive agenda” of Obama and Clinton can “be defended.”

The Samaritan’s Purse president and CEO also made it clear that he isn’t officially endorsing either candidate, and yet his advice to voters leaves only one real choice.

According to Graham, who officially left the Republican party to become an Independent back in December 2015, “both candidates are flawed,” but we all will “have a choice to make” come November 8th. And to Graham, like many Americans who see the big picture, “The most important issue of this election is the Supreme Court” and who gets appointed there will “remake the fabric of our society for our children and our grandchildren, for generations to come.”

Sure, it may not be a ringing endorsement for Donald Trump, but it’s not hard to read between the lines here.

Here is Graham’s statement in its entirety:

The crude comments made by Donald J. Trump more than 11 years ago cannot be defended. But the godless progressive agenda of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton likewise cannot be defended. I am not endorsing any candidates in this election. I have said it throughout this presidential campaign, and I will say it again—both candidates are flawed. The only hope for the United States is God. Our nation’s many sins have permeated our society, leading us to where we are today. But as Christians we can’t back down from our responsibility to remain engaged in the politics of our nation. On November 8th we will all have a choice to make. The two candidates have very different visions for the future of America. The most important issue of this election is the Supreme Court. That impacts everything. There’s no question, Trump and Clinton scandals might be news for the moment, but who they appoint to the Supreme Court will remake the fabric of our society for our children and our grandchildren, for generations to come.
