If you thought the culture wars were over and
Christianity lost, the Rev. Franklin Graham would
like you to think again.

Friday, as much of the country reeled from
President Obama’s order that all public schools
must allow transgendered people to use
opposite-sex bathrooms, the president of
Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham
Evangelistic Association expressed his personal outrage. Taking to Facebook, he issued the
following rebuke:

“Who does President Barack Obama think he is?
The sultan of Washington? Does he think he can
just make a ‘decree’ and we will bow down and
simply obey?

“The decree he released today says that all
schools across the country have to allow
students to choose the restrooms and locker
rooms according to ‘their internal sense of
gender.’ If schools don’t comply, he threatens
loss of funding and lawsuits from the federal government.

“What about the privacy and protection of all the
other students? Isn’t this discrimination against
all of them? This opens up bathrooms to sexual
predators and perverts. A decree does not carry
the force of law—that’s the job of Congress.

“The president obviously must have no fear of
God, who made us and created us male and
female. I hope that school districts across this
nation will defy President Obama and his
administration’s radical progressive agenda to
promote and advance the sin of homosexuality and the LGBT agenda.”

While that was all he had to say specifically about
the issue, a couple of comments he made over
the weekend certainly added to the message.
Sunday, he asked his social media followers,
“What would you to take a bullet for?”

“What are the principles and beliefs that you
would not compromise under any
circumstances? Even if it meant putting your life
on the line?” he asked. “King Nebuchadnezzar
who reigned over Babylon issued a decree that
everyone worship the golden image he had made. Three men who knew the one true and
living God, refused to worship the king’s idol—
their names were Shadrach, Meshach, and
Abednego.

“The king told them, ‘But if you do not worship,
you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a
burning fiery furnace.’ Here is their bold reply:

“‘O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to
answer you in this matter. If that is the case, our
God whom we serve is able to deliver us from
the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us
from your hand, O king. But if not, let it be
known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which
you have set up’ (Dan. 3:16-18).

“Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego stood firm
in obedience and faithfulness. They stood up for
God’s truth. They stood up for their faith, and
they didn’t waiver, even when it meant putting
their very lives at risk. I want to call on every
Christian and every pastor to stand firm like these patriarchs of old and not bow to the
secular, increasingly godless culture in which we
live—even when (not if) we’re criticized,
mocked, and labeled intolerant.

“The God of the Old Testament that delivered
Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego from their
fiery execution is the same God today—and He is
still more than able to save. Will you stand
against ungodliness? What are you willing to take a bullet for?”
