Franklin Graham Leaves the Republican Party After Spending Bill Passes

Recently, both Republicans and Democrats passed a $1.1 trillion government-funding bill. As a result, evangelist and son of Billy Graham, Franklin Graham has decided to leave the Republican party and declare himself an independent.

He wrote a post stating “Shame on the Republicans and the Democrats for passing such a wasteful spending bill last week. This is an example of why I have resigned from the Republican Party and declared myself an Independent. I have no hope in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or the Tea Party to do what is best for America.”

Graham went on to criticize the bill for setting aside taxpayer funding for Planned Parenthood.

He shared “There’s no question – taxpayers should not be paying for abortions! Seeing and hearing Planned Parenthood talk nonchalantly about selling baby parts from aborted fetuses with utter disregard for human life is reminiscent of Joseph Mengele and the Nazi concentration camps."

In addition, Graham announced a campaign to hold prayer rallies in every state capital in the nation.
