The news is out: [More than 16,000 Christians have signed a petition calling for evangelical leader Franklin Graham to be fired as the head of Samaritan’s Purse and his father’s namesake non-profit Billy Graham Evangelistic Association after he endorsed President Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories that the election was “rigged or stolen.”
Graham said in December that he believed Trump when he said that the election was “rigged or stolen.” Graham later tweeted his support for Republican lawmakers planning to object to the certification of President-elect Joe Biden’s win in multiple battleground states. The petition argues that Graham’s support of Trump’s false claims helped to incite the mob of the president’s rioters who stormed the U.S. Capitol while Congress convened to count the Electoral Votes on January 6.
“Our faith in Jesus Christ demands that we do better than this. Your fellow Christians from across the country call on you to fire Franklin Graham, or to resign from the Board in individual protest,” the signatories add. The petition will be sent to board members of both organizations.]
“Our faith in Jesus Christ demands that we do better than this.” MY ASS. JESUS PREACHED TOLERANCE AND FORGIVENESS.

I have neither the time nor the crayons to explain this to these fake-ass Christians.
