The Rev. Franklin Graham is Leaving the GOP – will Other Christians Soon Follow?

Franklin Graham recently announced his renunciation of any previous affiliation with the Republican Party after 387 members of Congress treasonously voted for a bill that not only funds terrorism abroad, but also at home.

Franklin Graham expressed that he cannot support any political party that deliberately funds, with government money, the dismembering of baby body parts and “selling” of fetal tissue. Graham has rightly compared Planned Parenthood to the Nazis, who also experimented on human beings.

Graham has previously mentioned that he has no faith in any political party and that Christians should run for office. However, he announced on Facebook:

“This is an example of why I have resigned from the Republican Party and declared myself Independent. I have no hope in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or Tea Party to do what is best for America.

“Seeing and hearing Planned Parenthood talk nonchalantly about selling baby parts from aborted fetuses with utter disregard for human life is reminiscent of Joseph Mengele and the Nazi concentration camps! That should’ve been all that was needed to turn off the faucet for their funding.”

Graham pointed to renewal for next year, as he will host prayer rallies in every state in 2016 to “challenge Christians to live out their faith at home, in public and at the ballot box.”

The first rally will be held in Iowa in January before the nation’s first presidential primary.

Franklin GrahamIf Graham has courageously called out and left a morally bankrupt Republican Party, why then are other Christian leaders not following his example? And why are any American Christians continuing to support a political party that funds an organization that sells human body parts?

Worse still, where’s the outrage or political will among Christians to demand that the American government stop funding ISIS and Iran and instead protect Christian refugees?

ISIS isn’t selling body parts. Yet they’ve received far more resources from the U.S. than Planned Parenthood has.

ISIS is selling whole bodies. Living “viable” bodies.

Living “viable” bodies of mostly 9 year-old girls and younger.

Living girls are repeatedly sold in slave bazaars. For less than $200.

Where’s the outrage and political will to rescue the living?

And why would any Christian remain silent when these 387 members of Congress, 75 percent of America’s leaders, have not only committed treasonous acts, but also profited from willingly funding, with American taxpayer dollars, the slaughter of children and Christians worldwide?

Leaving a political party is one option. Another is to demand resignation, impeachment, and trials for treason for these officials who have not only broken their oaths to defend the Constitution but are deliberately importing people who openly admit they hate America.

In 2015 America:

  • Our laws are no longer made by a legislature elected by the people. 
  • Our form of government exists without our consent.
  • Taxation continues without representation.
  • Our political authority—we the people—is no longer derived from ourselves.

How much more will it take for Christians to respond to an illegitimate, unconstitutional, and tyrannical government ruled by evil men?
