The Reverend Franklin Graham recently denounced former Speaker of the House John Boehner for calling Sen. Ted Cruz "Lucifer in the Flesh."
On his Facebook page, Rev. Graham posted a comment Friday in response to Boehner's referring to Sen. Cruz as being the Devil incarnate.

South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham has warned of grave consequences if Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump succeeds in becoming president, from opening the door to another 9/11 terror attack, to "destroying conservatism."
"There's a civil war going on in the Republican Party, obviously. John [Boehner] and I are very close friends, but he's embracing Donald Trump, and I am not," Graham, who dropped out of the GOP race in the early running, told CBS' "Face the Nation" in an interview.
His comments referred to former House Speaker John Boehner's backing of Trump, where Boehner attacked Texas senator and Trump rival Ted Cruz, calling him "Lucifer in the flesh." more >>
One of the most prominent pollsters who focuses on the religious beliefs and behaviors of Americans says most evangelicals actually doubt that Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump is a conservative.
George Barna, the founder of the research firm Barna Group, explained during an interview with One News Now that despite media reports suggesting Trump is winning over evangelical voters, many evangelicals are weary of Trump's new-found conservatism.
"They don't really believe he's a conservative — only four percent believe he's genuinely a conservative," Barna explained. more >>
Satanists are on fire over former House Speaker John Boehner's contemptuous comparison of Republican presidential hopeful Sen. Ted Cruz to the prince of Hell, Lucifer.
Boehner, in comments that have since gone viral, told an audience at Stanford University on Wednesday night, according to the Stanford Daily, that Cruz is "Lucifer in the flesh."
"I have Democrat friends and Republican friends. I get along with almost everyone, but I have never worked with a more miserable son of a b**** in my life," Boehner told the audience. more >>
Sojourners founder Jim Wallis and dozens of other Christian leaders are condemning Donald Trump's use of public fear and resentment throughout the 2016 election as being "a moral and theological crisis" that "threatens the well being" of the American society.
More than 50 prominent Christians "from across the political spectrum," but mostly from the Christian left, have signed onto a declaration titled "Called to Resist Bigotry — A Statement of Faithful Obedience" that calls on Christians to resist rallying around "demagogic" political candidates who rely on exploiting anger and "hatred" to gain support.
"At significant times in history, however, Christians from across the political spectrum come together around political realities that threaten the fundamental integrity of Christian faith and the well-being of society itself," the declaration explained. "Sometimes what is called politics raises moral crises, in which our faith is literally at stake in the way we respond." more >>
Following Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz's announcement Wednesday that former GOP candidate Carly Fiorina is to be his vice-presidential running mate, the nation's largest abortion provider chastised the two staunch pro-lifers as "the most loathsome pair."
Fiorina has long called for Planned Parenthood to be stripped of its tax funding and has frequently cited last year's Center for Medical Progress sting videos that purport to show abortion clinics violating the law. The abortion giant's lobbying arm issued a statement that claims that a Fiorina-Cruz ticket would give American women "nightmares."
"This is the same Carly Fiorina who is best known for lying; firing 30,000 people at Hewlett Packard; falling drastically in the race for the GOP nomination because of her lies about Planned Parenthood; and ambushing a preschool field trip to use toddlers as a tiny prop audience in an anti-abortion talk," the Planned Parenthood Action Fund wrote on its website. more >>
