‘Pro-Life’ Evangelical Franklin Graham Praises Tesla Maker Elon Musk For Violating Life-Saving Coronavirus Order

Self-described “pro-life” evangelical Franklin Graham praised Tesla maker Elon Musk on May 11 for violating California’s life-saving coronavirus orders by re-opening his car manufacturing plant in Fremont, California.

Musk announced on Twitter on May 11 that he was going to reopen his factory in violation of Alameda County rules:

Graham praised Musk on Facebook, but didn’t mention the lives placed at risk by Musk’s choice:

I don’t know Tesla CEO, Elon Musk, but I like that he’s standing up for his rights, which are your rights too. He’s been trying to get his car manufacturing plant in California opened back up and get his employees back to work, but the bureaucrats want to keep him shut down even when his competitors in other parts of the country are able to go back to work.

Elon Musk is not afraid to defy these overreaching officials, and he’s opening up anyway. He said he’s going to be working on the lines with his workers and if anyone is arrested, it will be him. I like his stand! I think the majority of Americans agree that it’s time to get the country opened back up, as long as it’s done with caution—don’t you?

The Alameda County Public Health Department tweeted on May 12 that it was in discussion with Musk, who bragged about violating their order only one day earlier.

The Alameda County Public Health Department did not mention any other businesses that have been allowed to openly violate the COVID-19 order.
