Franklin Graham Event Bus Ads Pulled in UK After Outcry From LGBT Community
The Christian Post ^ | 7/12/18 | Stoyan Zaimov

Bus ads promoting an upcoming evangelistic festival with Franklin Graham in England were pulled in response to outcry from LGBT communities.

"Blackpool Transport has recently been made aware of an advert in place on the side of some of our double decker buses," said a spokesperson for the company, according to the Blackpool Gazette.

"In light of customer feedback and reactions on social media which has resulted in heightened tension, we have taken the decision to remove all adverts relating to the 'Time for Hope' Festival with immediate effect. We will reimburse any income back to the advertising company.

"We work with multiple advertisers and third-parties and in no way do we endorse or support any advertisement which is placed on our vehicles."

Graham's Lancashire Festival of Hope is scheduled to take place at the Winter Gardens Blackpool on Sept. 21-23. While Graham is expected to focus his message on the Gospel, local residents complained and expressed opposition to the evangelist's stances on issues such as gay marriage and Islam.

>>”We work with multiple advertisers and third-parties and in no way do we endorse or support any advertisement which is placed on our vehicles.”

First they try to pretend that it’s apolitical and they don’t really hate Cristians.

>>”Blackpool Transport is a proud ongoing supporter of the Pride and LGBT+ communities and in no way did we intend to cause any distress or upset,” Cole stated.

Then they admit that it’s purely political and they really do HATE Cristians...

Not sure why we saved England from Nazism.

They ended implementing it themselves.

The USA is the only country in the world with anything like the 1st Amendment.

The rest of the world pretends to have freedom of speech but really doesn’t. The UK has become hostile to the point of jailing those who do not toe the Party Line with their on version of the Ministry Of Truth.

But we are on the precipice of losing what little free speech we have been able to retain.

Two world wars apparently sapped their more masculine vitality. Same with the French.

Gods judgement is inexorable. But He’s very kind for a very long time...so please enjoy the “good” times for now.

Oppose a Christian evangelist who criticizes the left’s campaign to destroy the traditional family and morality.

Oppose any criticism of islam, which actively kills homosexuals and has a goal of imposing Sharia law in every western nation.

The left has it’s head up it’s own a**

Homosexuals trading in identity politics are the newest breed of hostile scoffers: they don’t enter the Kingdom and they try to use what influence they’ve got prevent others from entering the Kingdom.

It isn’t just that we tell them that they need to repent, because that would be in their little hearts just us judging them and who are we to judge them? No, it’s when we say that they can repent that really offends them because doing that puts it squarely on their own shoulders that they don’t.

That’s the function of the whole born this way guff, they make it out to be involuntary, but it is voluntary. What they choose to believe is that a confused state of mind arising out of the irrational process of youth represent facts. What they choose is to believe that God is to blame for their lusts and yet by demanding repentance isn’t possible they make their sin out to be bigger than God.

But they are slaves to their sin, and they in their hearts are bowing down to it as a squatter on the throne of their hearts, serving their sin, protecting their sin, loving their sin.

Yes, Paul clearly indicated that repentance is possible when he, immediately after listing off who will not enter the Kingdom, followed up by saying such were some of you.

But for those who steadfastly remain in the such are you still category till the end, who refuse to repent, there will be no hope, just Hell to pay.

We may have a First Amendment, but we also have a political censoring machine that would make Goebbels green with envy. Few people and businesses can recover from their onslaughts.

Because in England, Faggots and Muslims are the people who rule.

As I said, our protections are on life support. Without the st Amendment we would be jailed just for saying we support President Trump — EVEN AFTER HE WON!
