This week, several prominent politicians around the nation have been sent suspicious packages containing potential explosive devices. The recipients of the packages have primarily been Democratic leaders, including the Obamas, the Clintons, George Soros, CNN, and others.
The FBI has been working around the clock to determine where these packages originated. They just released a statement, saying that they are working diligently to find the culprit and to bring them to justice.
President Trump, First Lady Melania, Vice President Pence, and other leaders have explicitly condemned the violent nature of these packages. Now, Franklin Graham has joined in on condemning it.
Graham took to social media on Thursday night to talk about the violent nature of the explosive device packages. He said that there is only one solution to heal the hate in people’s hearts: Jesus.
Below are his Tweets:
He wrote, “We were all shocked & saddened as former @VP44 @JoeBiden, actor Robert De Niro, former @POTUS44 @BarackObama, former Secretary of State @HillaryClinton & others were high profile targets of suspicious packages containing possible pipe bombs this week.”
He continued, “We don’t know if these parcels were sent by someone on the right, the left, or none of the above. But we do know that the hatred & incivility we have been witnessing in our country is a disgrace. I agree with @JoeBiden when he said America has to ‘turn off his hate machine.’”
“Disagreeing with someone’s politics or their stand on issues doesn’t justify violence, harassment, or intimidation. We can argue our points passionately, but with civility. And we’re blessed to live in a country where we can let our voice be heard in the voting booth,” he continued.
Graham concluded, “This is another reminder of how important it is to pray for our leaders & for healing for our nation. Pray for all those targeted in these recent acts. Jesus Christ is the only one who can heal hate in a human heart- He’s the answer for each person, our families & our country.”
What do you think about Franklin Graham's words? Do you agree with him? Let us know. In other recent news, 20 are dead and 33 others injured after a middle school bus was tragically swept away in heavy rains. Please be praying for that entire situation.
