Pence and Trump host Franklin Graham


The anti-LGBT evangelical preacher Franklin Graham posed for photos with Mike Pence at a White House reception in the wake of The National Prayer Day that was held last week. Despite the widespread condemnation of his remarks, a string of senior Trump officials welcomed Mr. Graham very warmly. Taking to Facebook, Graham shared photos of himself with Vice President Mike Pence and his wife Karen. He was also photographed with Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue, as well as White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and her father Mike Huckabee. All these politicians, as well as Graham, have extreme anti-LGBT views and long records of hateful homophobic remarks made in public. Graham was on hand as President Trump announced new rules that grant healthcare workers the right to discriminate based on their religious beliefs. He later wrote: “I’m very thankful that we have strong men and women of faith in God serving our country in Washington. President Trump talked about the power and importance of prayer—as he pointed out, our first Continental Congress opened with prayer and it is still vital to our nation today.”
