-Franklin Graham Criticizes Pope Francis Pose on Same-Sex Union 

Franklin Graham has criticized Pope Francis over his decision to allow catholic priests bless same-sex marriage.

According to Graham, who is the CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, he said;

So-called “blessings” from religious leaders won’t save you from the judgment of God! Pope Francis has now approved Catholic priests “blessing” same-sex couples.”

“But none of us, including the Pope, has the right to “bless” what God calls sin. “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil…” (Isaiah 5:20).

“The Good News is that right now God will forgive sin, but we have to come to Him His way, on His terms–by repenting of our sins and placing our faith in His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ,” he said.

“Otherwise, the Bible says, The destruction of transgressors and sinners shall be together, and those who forsake the LORD shall be consumed” (Isaiah 1:28).”

According to the Vatican’s Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith declared in its Fiducia Supplicans that Catholic priests are permitted “the possibility of blessing couples in irregular situations and same-sex couples without officially validating their status or changing in any way the Church’s perennial teaching on marriage.”

According to the declaration, it made it known that the sacrament of marriage is still only between a man and a woman, stating “the Church’s doctrine on this point remains firm.”

“God never turns away anyone who approaches him! Ultimately, a blessing offers people a means to increase their trust in God,” Franklin Graham criticizes Pope Francis.

“The request for a blessing, thus, expresses and nurtures openness to the transcendence, mercy, and closeness to God in a thousand concrete circumstances of life, which is no small thing in the world in which we live. It is a seed of the Holy Spirit that must be nurtured, not hindered.”
