Conservative pastor Franklin Graham warned Christians that LGBTQ people are planning on “pushing their godless, secular agenda” when Joe Biden becomes president, saying that LGBTQ people are “extremely dangerous if they are permitted to proceed unchecked.”

“If you don’t conform to their ideology, agree with their sinful beliefs, teach what they say is right, they want to close you down,” he wrote in a Facebook post. “They will pressure and bully politicians to get their way.”

Graham linked a Christian Post article that discussed HRC’s “Blueprint for Positive Change 2020,” which lists 85 things the Biden administration could do to promote equality without going through Congress.

One item on the list was no longer giving Christian universities a religious exemption to the Higher Education Opportunity Act. The exemptions currently allow schools to get accredited even if what they teach doesn’t “meet science-based curricula standards.”

Al Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, said in the Christian Post article that “losing accreditation would devastate Christian schools.”

The article says that Christian colleges “need accreditation from government-approved agencies to show they can give students a useful education. If a school isn’t accredited, other schools often won’t accept transfer credits and employers won’t hire its graduates.”

“In terms of accreditation, [requiring Christian schools to teach a science-based curriculum] is an atomic bomb,” Mohler said.

Graham agreed. Since HRC is an LGBTQ organization, he made it all about LGBTQ people.

“If they are allowed free reign, they will go after the accreditation of Christian colleges, then Christian ministries and churches next, to strip them of tax-exempt status and try to force them to operate under policies that go against biblical teaching,” he wrote. “This is not only an attack on free speech and expression, but also an attack on our religious liberty.”

“We’ve had four years of an administration under President Donald J. Trump that staunchly defends religious freedom, freedom of speech, and the church,” he wrote.

He also said that there’s only a “potential” that Biden won the election and stressed that the election “isn’t finalized yet.” Joe Biden has won enough electoral votes to clinch the election and only Trump and his most ardent lackeys continue to insist that Trump actually won despite the overwhelming proof that he lost.
