Franklin Graham: Why I Stand With An Atheist on This Issue

Where Biblical truth and biology are unmistakable

I rarely take sides with an atheist—but on this issue I agree 100%. World-renowned scientist and atheist Richard Dawkins stated recently on the “Piers Morgan Uncensored” TV program that “as a biologist, there are two sexes, and that’s all there is to it.”

Dawkins put it plain and simple: The ridiculous efforts of LGBTQ activists intent on discrediting the indisputable fact that there’s only two biological sexes is “utter nonsense.”

God’s Word says it best: “So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Genesis 1:27). 

No matter how emboldened cancel culture becomes or how loud the woke mob shouts, there is no such thing as a transgender person. 

Incredibly, there are people who believe that they are the opposite sex from what God created them to be. Some people even call themselves “gender-fluid,” so that on a whim a person might think he or she can choose to be male or female. 

And this evil, gender-deceiving indoctrination is being perpetrated 24/7 by the Biden administration alongside the mainstream media, in education, in corporate board rooms, and in the training of doctors and lawyers. Even Big Tech helps spread this lie.

But more tragic is that innocent and highly impressionable young children are being targeted by the LGBTQ agenda. Bible-believing Christians everywhere should never be bullied into silent compliance. May we never forget Christ’s admonition: “But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea” (Matthew 18:6). 

Don’t be deceived. No amount of using preferred pronouns, changing sex assignments on birth certificates, or destroying women’s sports by allowing males to compete against females can undo what God does when He creates a human being in the mother’s womb.

Biology and common sense have always recognized the simple reality that a person is born either male or female. And more important, the Bible clearly teaches, “But from the beginning of the creation, God ‘made them male and female’” (Mark 10:6).

I appreciate Richard Dawkins taking a stand for this truth. I hope you will join me in praying that—like the Apostle Paul on the road to Damascus—Richard’s eyes will be opened to the truth of the Gospel and God’s love for him. ©2023 BGEA
