Franklin Graham: Putin’s doing what’s right for Russia, gays can go to heaven if they repent


Despite major changes in public opinion in recent years, Rev. Franklin Graham, son of iconic American preacher Billy Graham, reiterates his strong opposition to same-sex marriage and gay adoption in an appearance Sunday on ABC’s “This Week.”

Graham says that Russian president Vladimir Putin’s anti-gay “propaganda” law is what’s right for Russia, and that gays could still go to heaven if they repent.

Ralph Reed, chairman of the Faith and Freedom Coalition, adds that it is his belief that laws should be written based on an “ideal” for families: “I think that the social science is just simply not in yet on same-sex couples, and I think the law has every right to set an ideal, and the ideal is a mother and father.”

In an interview with the Charlotte Observer last month, Graham said the “gay and lesbian agenda” is out to “recruit” children through same-sex marriage and adoption.
