Rev. Franklin Graham has never been shy about defending Christian conservatism from the forces of evil, so we were not surprised to see him speak out swiftly against pop singer Madonna when she idiotically claimed that Jesus would be on the side of the pro-choice crowd. Taking to his Facebook, Graham said that Madonna was badly mistaken if she thought the Savior would take up for the likes of Planned Parenthood.
“Madonna says that the Author of Life, Jesus Christ, would approve of the destruction of life through abortion,” Graham wrote. “That’s absurd! I’m sorry that Madonna and others who believe the way she does are so misled. They must not understand that one day God will hold them accountable. To stand before a Holy God with the blood of the unborn on your hands is a frightening thought.”
The singer made the remarks in an interview with Australian news presented Andrew Denton, telling him that if she ever got an audience with Pope Francis, she would try to pull the Catholic Church away from its anti-abortion message.
“One day he might invite me,” she said of the pope. “I think this one might. Let’s talk about Jesus’ point of view about women. Let’s talk about it. What do you really think He thought of women? And don’t you think Jesus would agree that a woman has the right to choose what to do with her body? I think he [Francis] would be open to having that conversation with me.”
We don’t doubt that Madonna has the read on Pope Francis, but while he’s been known to take up a liberal cause or two, we don’t see him soon supporting a woman’s “right” to have an abortion. Not in this lifetime. And we have an extremely difficult time imagining this queen of perversion convincing the pope about anything Jesus might have thought. Something tells us he’s given the matter a bit more thought than she has.
But then, the left will stop at nothing to see abortion become as common as table salt. If they’re already willing to lie about what the Constitution says, why not take the leap to lying about what Jesus said? If you’re already going to hell in a handbasket, you might as well strap a motor to the back and get there as fast as possible.
