The daughter of evangelical pastor Billy Graham has suggested that God allowed 9/11 to happen because he’s too upset about transgender people.
Anne Graham Lotz is also the brother Franklin Graham, the head of the Samaritan’s Purse charity which is an international Christian relief organization.
Speaking to right-wing radio pundit Steve Deace, the evangelist suggested that God has abandoned the United States because of transgender rights. She said, “What I see in the nation of America right now, just the chaos on every level.
Lotz Graham continued, “There is silliness, there is craziness, and there’s the most illogical rulings. The one in North Carolina on HB2, which is to protect our children in bathrooms and locker rooms, has become something where the justice department is suing us for something that’s just common sense.
“To me it’s evidence that God has backed away.” Lotz Graham went on to suggest that God let terrorists win because of the “craziness” in the US.
The evangelist said: “In our nation, one of the things we pray for is that some of this craziness would settle down… but our nation seems to be shaking its fist in God’s face, we’re abandoning God as a nation. What happens then is God abandons us and backs away, he takes his favor and blessing away from us.”
