Earlier this week the Obama administration signaled its intention to declare the Stonewall Inn a national monument to LGBT rights. Franklin Graham is ever so pissed:
A monument to sin? That’s unbelievable. War heroes deserve a monument, our nation’s founding fathers deserve a monument, people who have helped to make America strong deserve a monument — but a monument to sin? The Washington Post reports that President Obama is poised to declare the first-ever national monument in New York recognizing “the struggle for gay rights.” It’s no surprise that the three officials who represent the area and support the monument are all openly gay. I can’t believe how far our country has digressed. I hope that the president will reconsider. Flaunting sin is a dangerous move. God’s Word tells us, “Righteousness exalts a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people” (Proverbs 14:34).
