Franklin Graham: The Spirit of Anti-Christ Is Everywhere
Graham also expressed his dismay at the way the recent memorial service for victims of the Tucson shooting was handled, contrasting the event with other memorial services that he attended. While memorial services for the Oklahoma City bombing and a prayer service after 9/11 called upon the name of God, the Tucson memorial featured an Indian man who was calling upon “father sky and mother earth.”
“There was no call for God to put His loving arms around those who were hurting,” he observed. “Why did they leave him out? They scoff at the name of Jesus Christ.”
He said the scoffing and persecution against believers of Christ is only going to get worse.
“The spirit of anti-Christ is everywhere,” stated Graham, who noted that television networks have pushed out reporters who cover Christian-related topics. “We’re being secularized so quickly. Anything that has to do with Christian faith is slowly being taking out of society.”
When he says “They scoff at the name of Jesus Christ”, is he implying that Obama is the one scoffing? Could this be another peep from the “Obama is the Anti-Christ” meme? Or just more of the typical “Christian persecution” meme?
Or is it just that he’s still bitter about being dis-invited from the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer?
