I thought the fundamentalists and republicans might un-like Putin now that he's invaded Crimea. The Putinistas also don't look so great with the crackdown on free speech. Graham still likes the Russian president -
"Isn’t it sad, though, that America’s own morality has fallen so far that on this issue—protecting children from any homosexual agenda or propaganda—Russia’s standard is higher than our own?"
It appears to be mainly that Obama has not exactly been toeing the right wing party line on LGBT rights. Which is good reason to embrace the man who apparently wants to re-expand Russian hegemony
He's also in "like" mode with Syria's dictator Assad.
"Syria, for all its problems, at least has a constitution that guarantees equal protection of citizens. Around the world, we have seen that this is essential where Christians are a minority and are not protected. The radicals in Syria want an Islamic constitution based on sharia law"
Yes, all of those dead children, citizens nerve-gassed, and a hundred thousand casualties, including more than 7,000 children. But he's good for Graham.
Holy sweet Jesus. American Evangelist supporting Russian warmonger and Syrian mass murderer. How pathetic. It's enough that US political conservatives are in love with Putin. But religious so-called leaders?
I am wondering what will become of the Crimea invasion. Obama just imposed sanctions and that is all I heard.
Crimea is a majority of ethnic Russians, but not that big of one. Ethnic Russians make up about 58% of the Crimea, with the remainder ethnic Ukrainians and Tartars.
Oh, Franklin, what a shameless hussy.
If you think about it, it's not really all that surprising that Franklin would come out in favor of dictatorial mass murderers, and irredentist thugs. After all, he was raised by a closet anti-semite who supported the Nixon administration that engaged in of a forcible right wing coup in Chile, undeclared and secret war in Cambodia, and and mass murder in Indonesia. Putin and Assad are right up his alley.
This kind of barbaric thinking goes on 24 hours a day all through the ages and doesn't stop until the civilized rise up and say NO! Refusing to submit to such terrorism takes intelligence, courage, vision and perseverance. Freedom is never given, it is taken. Ask any battered person or culture.
Freedom costs! A lot!
