Billy Graham’s ministry of LGBTQ intolerance 

And the LGBTQ community will not be silent in this moment of public mourning.

The  Reverend William (Billy) Franklin  Graham Jr.(1918- 2018) has died at the age of 99. Too often, hagiographies are painted when people die, especially of ministers. The televangelist, however, is not deserving of such high praises.
