This past summer, the Reverend Billy Graham tried to convert Queens. The old geezer is on his last legs, but his son Franklin Graham is carrying his foul torch.
Event: Thomas Road Baptist Church’s Super Conference 2005. Place: ‘Liberty’ University, founded by the Reverend Jerry Falwell. What was said by Franklin Graham: “New Orleans has been known for years as a party town. It is a city that has strong ties to the gay and lesbian movement, and these types of things.” What else was said: “There’s been satanic worship. There’s been sexual perversion. God is going to use that storm to bring revival. God has a plan. God has a purpose.” (To see a list of celebrity sexual perversions, go here).
Implicit in Graham’s comments is a connection between satanic worship and homosexuality. How we would love for all of Queerty’s readers to don horns and cloven hooves and then mercilessly poke Graham in his flattened, cellulite-ridden behind with pitchforks.
