Franklin Graham: Cory Booker Has “Turned His Back On God” By Saying Thoughts And Prayers Are “Bullshit”

“Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker obviously doesn’t know the power of prayer. He said that thoughts and prayers after gun violence is BS. That couldn’t be farther from the truth. When people have lost loved ones, they need the comfort and strength that can only come from God.

“The solution for the problem in this country is much deeper than more laws. The Bible says, “…out of the heart proceed evil thoughts, murders, adulteries, fornications, thefts, false witness, blasphemies …” (Matthew 15:19). “Jesus’ words are true, and only He can transform the human heart.

“I’m sorry that some of our politicians have turned their backs on God. I’m going to continue to pray for victims of violence and their loved ones, and I’m going to continue to urge others to pray for them when these tragedies occur. Unless our nation calls on God and turns our heart toward Him, violence of all types will only continue to escalate.” – Franklin Graham, posting to Facebook.

Graham last appeared on JMG when he declared that Melania Trump is “the classiest First Lady our country has ever had.”
