I’d like to stress that Graham is a Christian Zionist who supports counterfeit Israel. He is also anti-Muslim. (r. a. note)

Commenting on the Mormon church’s decision to remove all of its older boys from the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), Rev. Franklin Graham said it was necessary to “get their younger boys out as well” because of the BSA’s embrace of homosexual leaders and transgender members, and added he would not want his children influenced by “a gay Scout Leader that goes against God’s design for creation.”
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, the Mormon church, has been a partner with the BSA for more than 100 years. Last Thursday, the church announced its 14-to-18-year-old members would no longer participate in the Scouts after January 1, 2018. Younger Scouts, ages 8 to 13, will still participate in the BSA, at least for the foreseeable future.
In 2015, the BSA decided to allow openly homosexual Scout leaders. In January 2017, the Scouts agreed to admit members who identify sexually based on gender choice, not biological sex, which means transgender people can join the Boy Scouts.
In a May 12 post on Facebook, Franklin Graham wrote, “The Mormon Church made a good decision yesterday, announcing it was pulling older boys out of the Boy Scouts of America. They had been the biggest sponsor of Boy Scouts in the United States. A scholar said the Boy Scouts’ new policies relating to gays probably related to the decision.”
“Churches should always stand with teachings that align with the Word of God,” said Rev. Graham, the son of world-renowned pastor Billy Graham.
“Two years ago, the Boy Scouts of America voted to allow gay leaders and then this year began to allow members based on their gender identity rather than their biological sex, opening the door to transgender members,” he said.
“I think the Mormon Church—and all churches—should pull out of the Boy Scouts organization completely,” said Graham. “They need to get their younger boys out as well.”
“I would not want my child or grandchild to be influenced by the lifestyle of a gay Scout Leader that goes against God’s design for creation,” said Franklin Graham.
Franklin Graham, 64, is the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA). He also oversees the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse. Graham is married and has five children. He regularly preaches in the United States and abroad, and frequently comments on current events.
