Christian Leader Franklin Graham sounded off Friday in a series of tweets.
It was encouraging to hear @POTUS Trump announce guidelines for opening up America again. We thank God that it looks like we are past the peak of the #COVID19 infection rate. We’ve got to get our country up & running before the economy & people’s lives are damaged more. 1/3
I definitely agree that we all need to take precautions, wear masks, wash our hands, etc.; however, we also have to learn how to conduct business & keep production going during a pandemic. 2/3
In listening to Democratic politicians & liberal media, it seems they’d like to see this shut-down drag out & further weaken the economy—not to save lives—but to try to use this to defeat @realDonaldTrump in the election. Pray for the President, that God will give Him wisdom. 3/3
Graham also tweeted the following video, writing:
I shared on the @EricMetaxas Show that it’s important for us as Christians to stand for what we believe and not back down.
