McHenry Denounces Liberal Attacks on Reverend Graham

Today, Representative Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement denouncing the liberal attacks on Reverend Franklin Graham:

"It seems there are no bounds to the radical left’s cancel culture and crusade to silence all with whom they disagree. The latest target is Rev. Franklin Graham calling for his removal as the head of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. This is ludicrous.

"I have been privileged to represent and get to know numerous members of the Graham family, including Dr. Billy Graham, during my time in Congress. Under Franklin’s leadership, both organizations have ministered and provided relief to countless people in need across the globe for decades. I am especially grateful to the team at Samaritan’s Purse who are currently serving our area in a mobile hospital they have deployed to battle the Covid-19 pandemic.

"I thank Franklin Graham for his leadership of these organizations and his continued service to those in need, here in western North Carolina and around the world."
