Franklin Graham Denounces Proposed Ban On "Ex-Gay" Therapy - "Homosexuality Is An Abomination"

Franklin Graham

In a post on his Facebook page, Franklin Graham denounced Democratic lawmakers for proposing a federal ban on so-called "ex-gay therapy."

Along the way, reasserts that "homosexuality is an abomination," and that gays are born "imperfect."

“Now Democrats are proposing a bill to ban conversion therapy in the United States, saying that LGBTQ people were born perfect. Actually, they are very misled. We were all born imperfect, with sinful natures — yet loved by God who offers us forgiveness and wholeness through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ.

“Homosexuality is defined by God as sin, an abomination to Him. There’s one ‘conversion therapy’ that works for all sin, and that is asking Jesus Christ to come into our hearts. He can transform and heal our lives, making us new. The Bible tells us, ‘Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come’ (2 Cor. 5:17).”

Congressman Ted Lieu introduced The Therapeutic Fraud Prevention Act of 2017 this week.

At the time he told the Washington Post:

“The bill is very simple. It says it is fraud if you treat someone for a condition that doesn’t exist and there’s no medical condition known as being gay.

"LGBTQ people were born perfect; there is nothing to treat them for. And by calling this what it should be, which is fraud, it would effectively shut down most of the organizations.”

"Ex-gay therapy," also known as "reparative therapy" has been decried by dozens of medical professional organizations, and has been proved to harmful, akin to torture.

I don't know about being "perfect," but...
