Rev. Franklin Graham, one of the president’s most loyal supporters, called out those who breached the Capitol building Jan. 6th, saying they’re “thugs” and should be prosecuted.
Other prominent faith leaders, including Rev. Sam Rodriguez, Pastor Robert Jeffress, worship leader Sean Feucht, Dr. Russell Moore, and Dr. Ed Stetzer, have also condemned the people who illegally entered the building.
Graham spoke on CBN News’ Newswatch program, responding to a question about Christian symbols such as the Christian flag and a Jesus flag, seen in the crowd as rioters forced their way into the Capitol.
Graham acknowledged the flags and defended the right of Christians to protest. But he forcefully spoke against those who broke into the building, one of the most prominent symbols of American democracy.
