“Anytime there was a vaccine or something that could help protect you, he was an advocate for, he took it,” Franklin Graham told ABC News in a recent interview during a segment in which mainstream media was selling the various Covid-19 vaccines to the American people. “I think if there were vaccines available in the time of Christ, Jesus would have made reference to them and used them.”
In the first part of his statement, he was referring to his famous father, Evangelist Billy Graham, who famously embraced modern science while maintaining his adherence to a Biblical worldview. But it was in the second part of the younger Graham’s statement that problems emerge. Claiming to know that Jesus Christ would make “reference” to vaccines and use them is borderline blasphemous.
To be clear, Graham is not someone we consider to be heretical. His doctrine has been mostly sound over the years and he does not seem to be a false teacher. But this particular push is disingenuous and makes claims about the beliefs of our Lord and Savior that he should reconsider. It was an irresponsible statement made in a way that was intended, in his mind, to do good. Nevertheless, it’s a stretch of credulity.
At another point in the segment, Graham and others seem to insinuate that religious leaders who are pushing against the Covid vaccines are taking risks with their parishioners. This may be true, but these pro-vaccine religious leaders did not note the opposite side of the coin. Should those pushing Covid vaccines feel badly if someone they’re counseling dies from it? There have been numerous cases of deaths cause by the vaccines, though mainstream media generally ignores these or even covers them up.
On the latest episode of Conservative News Briefs, JD and Tammy chastise Graham for his claims of knowing the mindset of our Messiah. They did so from a perspective of vaccine-neutrality; as JD often says, one does not have to be an anti-vaxxer to have serious questions about the efficacy and safety of these experimental and rushed drugs.
“I believe it is consistent with Scripture that we protect our lives and do whatever we can to save life,” Graham said. “So I don’t have any problem with telling a person to take an aspirin or telling a person to have a vaccine.”
There is nothing wrong with this statement based on his beliefs. One can disagree, but it’s a matter of Biblical interpretation. There is nothing in the Bible to indicate Jesus Christ would be pushing vaccines.
It’s conspicuous that the statement regarding Jesus taking vaccines was removed from the digital version of the video, but was still included in the news report accompanying it as of the posting of this article. Here’s the full video of the ABC News segment without the Jesus-vaccine remark:
It’s one thing to support the vaccines and hope more Evangelicals and Catholics take them. It’s another thing altogether to claim to know what Jesus Christ would have thought of them. Franklin Graham should have known better.
Most “Conservative” News Outlets Are on the Big Tech Teat
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), an Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCP). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would make the bold move. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken free from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- ZStack: Improve your immune system with the Z-Stack protocol or rejuvenate your body from vaccines or shedding with Z-DTox by Dr. Vladimir Zelenko.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them JD sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- MyPatriotSupply: Stock up on long-term food, survival gear, and other things that you’ll need just in case things don’t recover and we keep heading towards apocalypse.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
