Hate preacher Franklin Graham has filed a lawsuit against a number of British entertainment venues that have canceled meetings because of his extremely homophobic views.
Graham’s eight-day evangelist tour of the UK was in tatters as all of the venues retreated amid protests against his anti-LGBT + comments, including declaring that same-sex marriage is a result of Satan and that strange people are responsible for a “9/11 morality” are.
The claim that it was rejected [a platform] Because of Religious Beliefs, “The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) has launched two retaliatory suits – one against locations in Manchester and Birmingham and one against locations in Sheffield and Wales.
The legal challenges have reportedly raised serious concerns among observers, who fear it could create new precedents for US “religious freedom” arguments to overturn anti-discrimination policies in Europe.
“The BGEA not only asserts its religious freedom, it also demands religious impunity for its hate speech,” said Neil Datta of the European Parliamentary Forum on Sexual and Reproductive Rights to openDemocracy.
Fortunately, there is no such right to impunity, and they should be judged on the words of their leaders, while others may have the right to decide whether BGEA is welcome in their community.
British LGBT + activist Peter Tatchell also expressed concern about interference with “Christian imperialism” in the US.
“American evangelicals, funded by secret donors, export homophobia around the world,” he warned. “This Christian imperialism threatens the well-being and human rights of millions of LGBT + people.”
The lawsuits were brought to light by openDemocracy as part of an investigation that found evidence of millions of dollars that the BGEA and other right-wing American Christian organizations have spent since 2007 to advance their agenda in Europe and Europe elsewhere in the world.
The independent investigation found that BGEA spent $ 20 million (£ 15 million) in Europe between 2007 and 2014, the last year the organization’s funds were available.
The BGEA has refused to answer OpenDemocracy’s questions about its spending since 2014. However, if she continued to spend the same amount as before, Franklin Graham and his organization here would have contributed at least $ 50 million to the region. 2020.
