Franklin Graham Dismisses Sexual Assault Allegation as “Not Relevant”

In an interview with the Christian Broadcasting Network, Christian evangelist and missionary, Franklin Graham (son of Billy Graham) of North Carolina, argues that the sexual assault allegation against Supreme Court nominee, Judge Brett Kavanaugh, is “not relevant.” https://www.charlotteobserver.com/news/local/article218630640.html

In doing so, Graham has forfeited whatever remaining shred of moral authority he might have claimed as a Christian leader.

It’s bad enough that Graham accepts on blind faith Judge Kavanaugh’s denial of the incident but worse yet that he claims that even if the allegation is true it’s “not relevant” because “there wasn’t a crime committed.”

The morality or immorality of an act doesn’t depend solely on whether the act is legal or illegal and, if the allegation against Kavanaugh is true, Kavanaugh’s assault was not only immoral but also unlawful, especially since, despite Graham’s contention, there’s not a shred of evidence that “when she said no … he respected it and walked away.”
