‘What are they smoking?’, Franklin Graham defends VP Mike Pence over student petition


    Nearly 5,000 people have signed a petition, saying the politician’s invitation to a ceremony for students soon to graduate from Taylor University in Indiana should be rescinded.


    Signatories claim polices of the Trump-Pence administration are “not consistent with the Christian ethic of love we hold dear”.


    Responding to protests at Pence’s upcoming appearance at the small evangelical university next month, Franklin Graham said: “What are those people smoking?

    “Vice President Pence recently told CNN that he is ‘a Bible-believing Christian’. Is that what these Taylor University students and alumni are objecting to?



    “I appreciate Taylor University’s President Paul Lowell Haines standing firm on the decision to invite Vice President Pence.”

    The controversy comes after openly gay Democratic presidential hopeful Pete Buttigieg criticised Pence’s stance on lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues. Mr Pence later said Mr Buttigieg “knows better”.

    - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.

    What is your response?

    If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
