In response to thousands of Atheists gathering on the National Mall last Saturday to rally for secularism at the 2016 Reason Rally, leading evangelist Franklin Graham pointed out the irony behind the demonstration.
Atheist activists, entertainers and performers took the stage in front of the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday to rile fellow atheists and religious “nones” to call on politicians and governments to take “reason” as priority over “religious-driven ideology.”
Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, took to his Facebook page Monday to argue that “freedom-loving” Americans should be concerned by the “liberal godless kind of reason” being promoted at the rally. Graham then wrote that it is “ironic” that the gathering was held on the grounds of the Lincoln Memorial.
“Isn’t it ironic that they met on the grounds of the Lincoln Memorial where these words are engraved in stone: ‘We here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation UNDER GOD shall have a new birth of freedom,'” Graham asked.
“President Abraham Lincoln acknowledged the inherent role God plays in establishing our rights and freedoms and so did many of our founding fathers.”
