Franklin Graham began by first saying that Kavanaugh’s attempted rape was “not relevant”:
It’s just a shame that a person like Judge Kavanaugh who has a stellar record–that somebody can bring something up that he did as a teenager close to 40 years ago. That’s not relevant.
Why he chose to try to justify the crime when Kavanaugh’s entire defense is that he never did it wasn’t just unnecessary, it exposed Graham’s truly immoral character.
But then he said something so terrible, I couldn’t believe it.
During the same Christian Broadcast Network’s interview with the evangelical leader, he was asked about the kind of message that might send to sexual abuse victims. His response:
Well, there wasn’t a crime committed. These are two teenagers and it’s obvious that she said no and he respected it and walked away…
He just flat out says that’s not true. Regardless if it was true, these are two teenagers and she said no and he respected that so I don’t know what the issue is.
AGR – Imagine this was YOUR DAUGHTER Graham. Imagine this was YOU underneath this guy covering your mouth, Graham. How would you feel?
Remember the Golden Rule.. Do unto others as you want done unto you.
