Blackpool Transport, a British transit company, has decided to pull advertisements for Franklin Graham’s crusade from their buses after the company stated they received complaints related to his views regarding the homosexual lifestyle.
The ads were for Graham’s upcoming “Crusade of Hope” which is to take place in September. Blackpool Transit has stated that they are removing the ads due to “customer feedback and reactions on social media which has resulted in heightened tension.”
LGBTQ group Blackpool Pride last month canceled its two-day festival booking at the Winter Gardens to protest Graham’s appearance, the Gazette added.
Two members of Parliament urged the British government to investigate if Graham should be denied a visa, the Gazette noted. Officials have accused Graham of “hate speech,” citing his words against Islam and the LGBT community. As the Guardian noted, Graham has said Islam is “an evil and very wicked religion.”take our poll - story continues below
Last year Graham said although he loves those in the LGBT community, he won’t be coerced into accepting the LGBT lifestyle: “The LGBT community continues to target Christians to try to get us to accept their lifestyle. It ain’t gonna happen. God calls homosexuality sin — take it up with Him if you don’t like it. He is the one who defines sin, not me.”
In other words, if you believe that marriage and sex are sacred institutions and practices created and designed by God — a truth evident in nature — you are an evil bigot guilty of “hate speech.” Even if you don’t actually hate anyone at all and only disagree with their lifestyle.
This is the world we live in now, folks. And these extreme measures are what our politicians want to bring to our shores.
However, much to Blackpool Transit’s chagrin, Graham isn’t backing down. Here’s what he had to say about the ads being pulled:
“I’m sorry that some see hope as offensive, but I can assure you that tens of thousands of people in Blackpool and across the United Kingdom are searching for hope,” he wrote on Friday. “Sex, drugs, money, even religion — none of these are the answer.”
Graham continued: “I’m coming to share with everyone in Blackpool, Lancashire, and across North West England that there is One who can give you hope. Hope for today, hope for tomorrow, and hope for eternity. His name is Jesus Christ! Will you pray with me for this event in September and for God to work in a mighty way to transform hearts and lives across this region?”
The Bible clearly teaches that homosexuality is a sinful lifestyle that is highly offensive to God — it violates his natural created order — and often leads to the destruction of civilization and societies. There’s nothing wrong with exercising concern with this practice and lifestyle.
Apparently the British do not value freedom of speech, or the truth for that matter, because if they did, they would allow the ads to stay up and for this man to have the full God-given right to speak about his beliefs.
God bless Mr. Graham for sticking to his faith.
Harrowing Tale of Week-Long Bear Attack is a Hoax, Say Investigators
Well this is embarrassing.
It was only a few days ago that the world became familiar with a truly stupendous tale out of America’s last frontier. A man, stranded at a remote cabin in the Alaskan bush, was being haunted and hunted every night by a vicious bear, after being mauled ever so slightly on his first day on site. His rescuers arrived after a week of these nightly attacks, and only after the stranded man was able to create a plea for help large enough to be seen by the air. The only issue with the story is that the whole thing appears to be made up, at least according to local researchers. While the story went viral worldwide and more details came to light about the incident, some community members began to express concerns and doubt about the veracity of the tale. The cabin [Richard] Jessee took refuge in, as it turns out, was not his. It belonged to a fellow miner, though Jessee’s cabin sat only a few yards away. “We went out there to the cabin, but we couldn’t find a bear track within 500 feet of the place, but it should have been all torn up, according to his story,” said one anonymous source known to the Nugget. “There’s no hair, no tracks, no scat, nothing.” And also… The Coast Guard crew delivered him to an ambulance in Nome, which took him to Norton Sound Health Regional hospital. “We were told to get a man who had been mauled by a bear,” said Jim West Jr., the Nome Volunteer Fire and Ambulance chief. “He walked off the helicopter and walked into the ambulance. He had no animal bites and wasn’t bleeding.” Local police do admit that the area is known for its bear population, however, and the traumatized Jessee is…
USPS Delivers Defiant Message to White House Regarding Vaccine Mandate
This is a slap in the face to the Biden administration.
According to the Biden administration, trouble is coming, and it will arrive in the form of another prolonged economic downturn and possible lockdowns, if we don’t somehow get this “delta” variant of COVID-19 under control. The issue, according to many medical experts, is that this mutated version of the primary coronavirus pandemic strain, is spreading too rapidly among the unvaccinated, and without a significant number of Americans suddenly deciding to get inoculated in the near future, we may not reach “herd immunity” for months. Now, in an effort to speed up the stagnating vaccination rate, President Joe Biden is set to announce that all federal workers should be vaccinated, or face a grueling COVID testing protocol that was intentionally designed to be uncomfortable. The United States Postal Service isn’t taking the news lying down, however. The influential American Postal Workers Union on Wednesday said, at this point, it opposes a coronavirus vaccine mandate from the Biden administration but encouraged workers to voluntarily take the jabs. “While the APWU leadership continues to encourage postal workers to voluntarily get vaccinated, it is not the role of the federal government to mandate vaccinations for the employees we represent,” the union said in a statement obtained by Fox News. The union did not immediately respond to an after-hours email from Fox News. The union said in the statement that the safety of its workers is “of paramount importance” but “at this time the APWU opposes the mandating of COVID-19 vaccinations.” The Biden administration’s mandate will not be 100% iron clad according to sources familiar with the matter, but, rather, would be an incredibly strong suggestion with some terribly annoying hoops to jump through to abstain.
