Franklin Graham Statement on Accusations Against Sarah Palin

By   •   January 11, 2011

I have been shocked at the reports from those suggesting that former Governor Sarah Palin has some level of responsibility for the horrific shooting in Arizona. I got to know Governor Palin when she served as Governor of Alaska. She was extremely helpful to Samaritan’s Purse in providing relief to remote villages throughout the state. Most recently, she and members of her family traveled with me to Haiti where we visited Cholera clinics, temporary shelter communities, and participated in an Operation Christmas Child distribution.

She is a kind and compassionate God-fearing woman who believes with all her heart that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Whether you agree with her politics or not, it is outrageous to suggest that her political opinions encourage violence toward anyone. This is a time for mourning and prayer for the victims and their families.

    I believe that Sarah Palin is a true christian. When you have a relationship with Jesus Christ it doesn”t matter what people say about you. It says in the Bible that you with be persecuted for being a christian. Keep up the great work! God is very proud of you! God is very proud of Franklin Graham as well.

    for some reason, I've always liked Sarah Palin. I don't know her personally nor have I read a lot of articles about her. It's just that her face, I perceive, is a face that loves Jesus. She has that tender, glowing look that I cannot comprehend. i only know that she loves God.
