Evangelist warns Christians about woke banks

In an address to the National Religious Broadcasters at their annual meeting in Florida, evangelist Franklin Graham warned of a “coming storm” that Christian organizations are facing – from the banking industry.
He explained he’s been forced to take steps to avoid being “canceled” on short notice in his own work, according to a report from the Washington Times.
He’s chief of the international relief charity Samaritan’s Purse as well as executive at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, launched by his late father.
The issue is that leftists in control of various banking institution or corporations have launched deliberate – and discriminatory – attacks on organizations of faith.
For example, the National Committee for Religious Freedom, started by former Kansas senator and governor Sam Brownback, had its accounts arbitrarily closed by Chase last year – with no explanation.
Graham said the surge of “wokeness” that already has invaded universities, schools, governments and social media organizations, “could sweep over evangelical ministries that broadcast the Gospel message and call out sinful behaviors,” the report said.

For example, the Bible condemns homosexuality; yet modern society not only promotes the lifestyle choice but elevates and exalts it to a protected activity level.
