Televangelist Franklin Graham took to Facebook Tuesday to shame Taylor Swift for her vocal support of the pro-LGBTQ Equality Act.

In his lengthy post, Graham, 67, said the vital measure, which would protect LGBTQ people in the workplace, is being pushed by "the socialist left" and that it "has nothing to do with equality, but is about pushing the LGBTQ agenda down the throats of the American people."

"When she received an award for her LGBTQ pride-themed music video at the MTV awards last night, she did a pitch for the Equality Act," he said of Swift winning the Video of the Year award at the MTV Video Music Awards Monday night. "This bill is the most crushing threat to religious liberty in our nation's history. I endorsed a letter appealing to Congressional leaders to vote NO to the Equality Act.

"This is far too serious for Christians to sit by and do nothing — I encourage everyone to contact their representatives in the Senate, asking them to vote AGAINST this dangerous measure which has already passed the House," he continued. "In addition to allowing perverted men access to women's private spaces like dressing rooms and restrooms, and allowing biological males to take over girls' and women's athletic competitions, this bill would do a lot more damage.

"It's about trying to force those of us who don't agree to accept and approve the LGBTQ lifestyle, and I'm not going to accept that," Graham added.

On Wednesday, the White House did indeed respond to Swift and her petition regarding the Equality Act. The statement was nearly word-for-word similar to a statement the White House released three months ago.
