Pro-Trump evangelical leader Franklin Graham claimed (VIDEO BELOW) on the Trinity Broadcasting Network that Christians didn’t take part in the violent Capitol riot on Jan. 6 even though Christians were filmed by The New Yorker praying inside the Capitol after they broke in.
Franklin Graham just said, “The Capitol, when it was attacked on the 6th, I know that a lot of media are trying to spin this that Christians were behind it” but that he’s watched many videos of the attack and that’s not what he saw… pic.twitter.com/yVsjn8eucD— Christian Nightmares (@ChristnNitemare) January 20, 2021
The Capitol, when it was attacked on the 6th, I know that a lot of media are trying to spin this, that Christians were behind it. I’ve been interviewed where they said there were Christian [symbology] out in the crowd, where there were people that said — that held signs that says “Jesus Saves.” They said the people attacked the Capitol.
I’ve watched many long videos of the attack on the Capitol. I saw American flags. I saw Trump flags. I saw one Rebel flag. But I didn’t see any “Jesus Saves” flags or signs inside the Capitol. I saw them out on the Mall. And so I know there were Christians… Our goal is not to attack or to burn or to destroy. Our goal, as Christians, is to build up and to strengthen. And we want to build up America. We want to strengthen America.
The Friendly Atheist called out Graham’s obvious lie:
To pretend Christians weren’t involved in the terrorist attack on our Capitol is just more willful delusion from a man whose entire career has been dedicated to spreading lies.
