Franklin Graham: Christians Should Pray for Trump, Not Truth, During Impeachment

As impeachment proceedings roll along, evangelist Franklin Graham is desperately asking the public to pray for Donald Trump.

Not for the truth to come out, mind you. Just for Trump.

He made the remarks after the House voted for formalize impeachment proceedings.

Democrats aren’t weaponizing the impeachment process by conducting hearings. He ought to be more upset at Republicans who refuse to respect subpoenas and who continue defending Trump by ignoring or rationalizing his conduct. But Graham would rather we put his political allegiance over a functioning democracy.

Trump doesn’t need any help embarrassing himself on the world stage, either. That’s what Twitter is for.

If Christians want to pray for the president, they should pray for accountability. Or that a thorough investigation finds that he did nothing wrong. Or maybe they should pray that everyone caught up in this latest Trump scandal faces the proper punishment. Some justice can’t wait for the afterlife.
