It can’t be easy being Franklin Graham.
Earlier this month, the antigay Evangelist preacher announced he was closing all his Wells Fargo bank accounts after learning the company was pro-gay. He then moved his coffers into the vaults of North Carolina-based BB&T, only to learn that it, too, was pro-gay. Oops.
(In theory, Graham is now also going to have to give up drinking Coke products, eating Ben & Jerry’s, flying Delta, watching Netflix, shopping at Sears, or using Tide detergent to wash his clothes since all of those companies voiced their support of SCOTUS’ ruling on marriage equality last week.)
Now, Billy’s elder, idiot son is really pissed. Again.
When the White House put a rainbow filter over its Facebook picture after SCOTUS’ historic ruling on Friday, Graham went into a veritable orgy of vitriol. In fact, he was so upset that he forgot how to use proper subject verb agreement when ranting on his Facebook wall.
First, he called the picture “outrageous,” then he said it was “a real slap in the face of the millions of Americans who do not support same-sex marriage and whose voice is [sic] being ignored.”
“God is the one who gave the rainbow, and it was associated with His judgement,” he added. “God sent a flood to wipe out the entire world because mankind had become so wicked and violent.”
Then he issued the following warning: “One day God is going to judge sin. All sin. Only those who are found righteous will be able to escape His judgement.”

Vickie Lockhart wrote, in all caps: “WITH THE CURRENT GENERATION UNABLE TO COLLECTIVELY FIGURE OUT HOW TO PROPERLY OPERATE UNDERWEAR… AND NOW WANTING TO PUT THEIR PRIVATES IN A HOLE ONLY POOPOO COMES OUT OF AND THEN LICK IT OFF… ASK YOUR DAD IF PERHAPS SOMEHOW WE HAVE FAILING AS PARENTS IN AMERICA.”
Stephanie Torres added, “My problem here is not with gays…in fact, I have several very close friends who are! My problem however is with the president taking it upon himself to DISRESPECT those who are not in agreement with this decision! … Asinine jerk!”
And Tina Henry said: “The Lord must be sobbing for this earth. hate the sin love the sinners. All have sinned. Im sorry this world is so screwed up Lord.”
Colleen Foughty Wick confessed that she was “horrified” by the White House’s rainbow filter. Meanwhile, Crystal Simmons suggested someone “blow [the] capital house up.” And Kayla Waterman wrote, “Gays are disgusting!”
Rob Riley‘s comment that takes the top prize when he calmly corrected Graham’s notion that rainbows are created by God as a way of sharing his divine judgement:
“The rainbow is created due to the refraction of light through the water drops,” Riley wrote.
