Franklin Graham, the evangelic pastor who preached at Trump’s inauguration, now claims that Christians are those who are discriminated against because of their anti-LGBT views. He reminds about times when people were killed for believing in Jesus Christ and says that currently we see the same, although the form of violence has changed. To his opinion Christians are persecuted not by means of weapon but by means of moral pressure. “We need to not only put a spotlight on what’s happening around the world but we need to put a spotlight on what’s happening here in this country, where Christians are being persecuted but in a different way. It’s not with a gun or a sword but they’re being forced out of businesses because they do not support the gay-lesbian agenda,” Graham says, “You take the bakers, the Kleins who had the little bake shop in Oregon, the family in Washington state that had the Christian pharmacy but they refused to carry the morning-after pill because they felt that was abortion, they were a Catholic family – and they lost their case before the courts. It’s over and over and over again across the country where Christians are being singled out, their businesses, because they won’t support the agenda of another group of people,” said Rev. Graham, son of pastor Billy Graham, “We need to protect them,” Graham insisted. “We need to protect the Christians in this country and abroad. If I put it in the spotlight, Tony, it’s going to help,” said Graham. “It’s not going to hurt. It’s going to help get the word out and the voices of those who have suffered, to give them a platform to speak.”
