Franklin Graham is wrong on all fronts

Constitutional freedom is granted to each individual to have for themself. No one has the right to impose their beliefs and views upon another person.
Religious freedom means you have the absolute right to worship and pray to any God that you choose. A person does not have the right to impose, or force his views on another person.
Franklin Graham wants to have the right to discriminate against homosexual people, as well as encourage others to discriminate. That is an infringement against the rights of those he has discriminated against.
Warren Jeffs wants the right to marry and keep as his wives as many minor female children as he wishes. That violates the civil rights of these young girls. What makes Warren Jeffs problem any different than Jeff Epstein? Simply shield of religion.
Using Franklin Graham’s model of “freedom of religion”, you can use the shield of religion to justify any abuse of the rights of other people, which for them there isn’t freedom at all.
Mr Graham’s religion teaches him to love thy neighbor and to charge no interest, strange how he can pick and choose which passages of his book of beliefs to practice.
