LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Evangelist Franklin Graham's latest warning came in the Charlotte Observer where he warned that gays and lesbians who have children are recruiting them into the cause of homosexuality.

"Of course, gays and lesbians cannot have children," he told the paper. Referring to adoption of children, he remarked, "They can recruit. You can adopt a child into a marriage, but you can also recruit children into your cause. I believe in protecting children from exploitation - all exploitations."

Please pray for all who struggle.

Franklin Graham is the son of Rev. Billy Graham, who is well respected in America as an evangelical preacher. Graham said his father would approve of his caveat about gay adoption and would be "speaking out in the exact same way I am speaking out on them."

The senior Graham just turned 95 last November, but has been ill recently. According to Franklin Graham, "he is very, very weak," and is bedridden in his Montreat home.

Franklin Graham has previously praised Russian President Vladimir Putin for his stance against the homosexual equivalency movement in that country.

Although the "cause" of homosexual equivalency has gained traction in Western Europe and the United States, much of the world still stands firm against deviant homosexual behavior. Such a stance is no longer popular in the United States where sticking to the moral ground on the issue can lead to boycotts, dismissals, and public shaming.

Despite the call of Franklin Graham as well as the stance of conservative Christianity, including the Catholic Church, most of the Christian world still believes that people with homosexual tendencies should be loved and should not be judged for their struggles. Pope Francis himself said that he would not judge such individuals. Nonetheless, children should be protected from exploitation and in cases where homosexuals seek to become parents and adopt, steps should be taken to ensure those children are not co-opted into a cause that belongs exclusively to adults.
