Franklin Graham is shameful To Christianity--Edson's IDOL????

   The Rev. Franklin Graham, apparent heir to Billy Graham's white evangelical dynasty continues, in our opinion, to throw more mud on the entire movement. He is one of Cliff Edson's idols, we believe, since he welcomed the supremacists into Calaveras County.

   His racist statements, like"...Obama is the final nail in the coffin for the legacy of white Christian males in America or "The problem with American Christianity is that it is not sufficiently homophobic, misogynist or racist."  You think he supports Trump??
