Franklin Graham: ‘I Have Resigned From the Republican Party’

By Todd Beamon at NewsMax

Franklin Graham has resigned from the Republican Party and become an independent, declaring that “I have no hope in the Republican Party, the Democratic Party, or tea party to do what is best for America.

“Unless more godly men and women get in this process and change this wicked system, our country is in for trouble,” Graham, 63, wrote on Facebook.

Graham called on “Christians, even pastors, across the country to pray about running for office where they can have an impact.

“We need mayors, country commissioners, city council members, school board members who will uphold biblical values.”

The budget deal was widely slammed by Republicans and conservatives last week, who charged congressional leaders — including new House Speaker Paul Ryan — with “betrayal” for putting through a spending plan that financed many of President Barack Obama’s programs.
Besides Planned Parenthood, other Obama efforts that were fully financed under the deal were Obamacare, sanctuary cities, climate change, refugee resettlement programs — and well as an increase in foreign worker visas.

“It is as though Nancy Pelosi is still running the House and Harry Reid is still running the Senate,” radio talk-show host Rush Limbaugh charged on Friday. He was referring to the Democratic leaders of the House and Senate.

“‘Betrayed’ is not even the word here,” he said. “What has happened here is worse than betrayal.

“Betrayal is pretty bad, but it’s worse than that.”

In Graham’s Facebook post, he also announced the start of his “Decision America Tour” next month in which he will be holding prayer rallies in 50 state capitals.

The first is on Jan. 5 in Des Moines. Iowa holds its caucus on Feb. 1 in the first test of the 2016 presidential primary season.

“Shame on the Republicans and the Democrats for passing such a wasteful spending bill last week. “ – Posted by Franklin Graham on Monday, December 21, 2015

Graham also posted his decision Monday on Twitter:

A Huff. Post article called the omnibus bill “a big win for Planned Parenthood.” I call it a big loss for America.
