Franklin Graham Blasts Republicans, Leaves Party

12-23-2015

Rev. Franklin Graham says he is leaving the Republican Party.

The evangelist took to Facebook on Monday blasting the GOP for passing what he called a "wasteful spending bill" that "funds Planned Parenthood."

"There is no question taxpayers should not be paying for abortion!  Abortion is murder in God's eyes," he wrote.

Graham went on to compare the recent undercover videos showing the sale of aborted baby parts to Nazi concentration camps. The videos revealed Planned Parenthood staffers talking with prospective buyers of harvested organs and other body parts from aborted fetuses.

Many Republican congressmen appeared to favor cutting off Planned Parenthood funding, but that didn't happen.

Graham, who has expressed support for presidential hopeful Donald Trump, says America's political system needs a total revamp.

"Unless more godly men and women get in this process and change this wicked system, our country is in for trouble," he concluded.
