Franklin Graham: Pope Francis ‘Is Not the Judge’ on Homosexuality (Mediaite)

On Meet the Press Sunday morning, Franklin Graham, son and heir apparent of longtime evangelical preacher Billy Graham, clearly differentiated his views on homosexuality from those of Pope Francis, who made headlines this summer when he presented a more accepting view of gays.

“If a person is gay and seeks god and has goodwill, who am I to judge them?” the Pontiff said earlier this year.

“I want to warn people: I think the Pope is right when he says he’s not the judge,” Graham said. “He’s not the judge. God is the judge.”
