Why Does Jack Graham of Prestonwood Baptist Church Support Sexual Predator Donald Trump?

20 November 2017 at 9:39:38 AM

Have already spoken some years back about the attempts by Prestonwood Baptist Church to bury its seamy past, as well as pedophilia.  

What I wonder, in light of the ongoing almost daily exposes of people who have been sexual predators, if Jack Graham will pull back from his overt support of Donald Trump? Or is it more important to be a prominent person who is part of the world while overlooking immoral behaviour? 

Consider. Donald Trump has had at least 15 women accuse him of sexual misconduct, including groping and molestation.  Donald Trump bragged about being able to grab women by the p***y. Also bragged about how he could walk in on naked women when he ran the Miss Universe pageant. Was accused in a lawsuit of raping an underage girl. 

People of honor reject even associating with those who do these types of things and speak out about it. Apparently not Jack Graham. 

Why not? 

P.S. Interesting to note that  in 2017, Graham withheld funds from the SBC (Southern Baptist Convention)'s Cooperative Program missionary funds because he disagreed with how another Baptist preacher talked about Trump. So it's okay for him to hug up on morally deficient Trump and involve himself in politics but not okay for any other SBC pastor to do so? 

Mike Buster, executive pastor for the Plano, Texas, church, provided a statement to the Baptist Message explaining that the action had been taken because of “various significant positions taken by the leadership of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission that do not reflect the beliefs and values of many in the Southern Baptist Convention” and that it is a temporary move “until a decision can be made on current and future funding.”

The decision impacts $1 million the 41,000-member congregation would otherwise contribute through the Cooperative Program, Southern Baptists’ primary funding channel for support of state and national causes.

Russell Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, has created tensions among Southern Baptists by signing a friend of the court brief in support of the construction of a mosque, and, for making strident insults against evangelical supporters of then-presidential candidate Donald Trump during the 2016 election process.

In such publications as the Washington Post, he condemned those who disagreed with him as “the old-school political Religious Right,” caricaturing them as “doctrinally vacuous.” He also broadly asserted that self-identified evangelical Trump voters “may well be drunk right now, and haven’t been into a church since someone invited them to Vacation Bible School sometime back when Seinfeld was in first-run episodes.”...

Instead, he (Jack Graham) described an “uneasiness” among church leaders about the “disconnect between some of our denominational leaders and our churches.”

Yeah, there's a disconnect all right. and that disconnect is about churches that don't strongly condemn pedophilia, that don't, despite being baptist, strongly endorse separation of church and state, and which, for the sake of being able to hobnob with presidents, don't strongly condemn world leaders, including US presidents, who no one would ever want to hold up as an ethical example for anyone.
