Franklin Graham blasted the University of Houston student government Thursday for suspending its vice president, Rohini Sethi, who posted "Forget #BlackLivesMatter; more like #AllLivesMatter" on social media, calling the move an attack on free speech.
In a statement on his Facebook page, Graham said, "We've all heard about the Black Lives Matter movement which has been associated with numerous demonstrations and calling for violence against police."
"Wow. Somebody needs to tell this student government association that their vp was right — all lives do matter. Shame on them! God is the Maker and Creator of all life. He didn't make one group more valuable than other groups or one life more valuable than another. In His eyes, every life matters. And no one should be punished for saying that," he continued. more >>
