Christian leader Franklin Graham was highly critical of the plan floated by Christian-hating liberals in Massachusetts to delete the name of God from official oaths of office.
Rev. Graham slammed the fact that “secularists across the country would like to completely wipe God from our nation’s past, present, and future.” He added, “Let’s don’t let that happen.”
According to CNSNews:
Domb’s proposal was approved by the state government’s Joint Legislative Committee in late April and has the support of at least 13 other Democrats, reported The Salem News. The plan also calls for changing the pronoun “he” to “they” in the constitution, to make it more gender neutral.
“Democratic legislators in the state of Massachusetts want to take a three-letter word out of the oath of office for their elected officials,” said Rev. Franklin Graham in a May 3 post on Facebook. “You guessed it—the word they want out is ‘God.'”
“Massachusetts has the oldest state constitution in the country and Democrat Rep. Mindy Domb wants to amend it from ‘so help me, God,’ to a secular version: ‘This I do under the pains and penalties of perjury,'” he said. “The bill would also amend this historic document, written by John Adams, to make it more ‘gender neutral,’ changing the pronoun from ‘he’ to ‘they.'”
Graham continued, “I agree with Andrew Beckwith, president of the Massachusetts Family Institute, who said, ‘It’s yet another cynical attempt to erase the rich legacy of faith that has been part of our Commonwealth from the Pilgrims to today.’ Isn’t that a shame?”
“Secularists across the country would like to completely wipe God from our nation’s past, present, and future,” said Rev. Graham. “Let’s don’t let that happen.”
The originator of the state’s constitution, our second President, John Adams. And Adams was adamant that Christianity be a basis for the country.
“I have examined all religions, and the result is that the Bible is the best book in the world,” he said.
“Suppose a nation in some distant region should take the Bible for their only law book and every member should regulate his conduct by the precepts there exhibited. . . . What a utopia – what a Paradise would this region be!” he wrote.
And today, un-American liberals seek to remove all vestiges of god and the Christian religion from that same nation.
