Graham was trying to defend his charity group Samaritan’s Purse, which forces medical personnel to sign a “statement of faith” that affirms they oppose same-sex marriage, support eternal hell and oppose abortion without exception for rape or incest:
I’m not homophobic, and I’m certainly not going around bashing people because they may be homosexual. I believe in that God loves all of us. He created us all, but we also are sinners, and our sins separate us from God.
And I want people to know how they can have a relationship with God, and that’s through faith in his son Jesus Christ. So, I don’t bash homosexuals. I want homosexuals to know the truth, that God does love them.
