Evangelist Franklin Graham and leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention have responded to Pope Francis’ endorsement of same-sex civil unions, calling it “unthinkable in light of the Word of God” and explaining that no pope or priest gets to “define sexuality or the family.”
Maybe Mr Graham could debate the matter with the Pontiff ? It seems to me that the Popes stance has more basis in Christianity than that of Mr Graham.
150 years ago Mr Grahams predecessors were big fans of slavery but now not so much. I think this story points up how much of an outlier sect this branch of American Christianity is.
