Graham, son of the late televangelist
Billy Graham and a supporter of President Donald Trump, said in a
Facebook post that the rainbow flag offended Christians.
“I want to thank President Donald J.
Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for making the decision not
to fly the gay flag over our embassies during June in recognition of
gay pride month. That is the right decision,” Graham said.
“The only flag that should fly over
our embassies is the flag of the United States of America. The gay
pride flag is offensive to Christians and millions of people of other
faiths, not only in this country but around the world. The U.S. flag
represents our nation – everyone – regardless of race, religion,
or sexual orientation,” he said.
