Franklin Graham Praises Verdict: “Justice Is Served”

Posted last night to Franklin Graham’s Facebook page:

The verdict is in and Derek Chauvin was found guilty of all charges in the death of George Floyd. Our legal system has worked and justice is being served. I hope all of America and our law enforcement will learn from this tragedy, and that we will become a better nation.

My prayer is that our country will come together. I hope Christians will set the example and lead the way. Jesus told His disciples, “This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you” (John 15:12). George Floyd’s life mattered—every life matters to God.

A quick scroll through the comments reveals that many of Graham’s followers are quite unhappy with him.
