Franklin Graham praised Elon Musk this week for recent comments the business magnate made about parents of children who undergo gender transitions.
"Elon Musk spoke out to make a point about the bizarre and dangerous transgender medical treatments being performed on minors, and I appreciate that he isn't afraid to call it like it is," Graham wrote in a Facebook post. "Last week, he tweeted that parents and doctors who put children through transgender medical treatments that cause sterilization should 'go to prison for life.'"
The evangelist, who heads the Christian relief organization Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, was referencing a viral tweet from Musk.
"Any parent or doctor who sterilizes a child before they are a consenting adult should go to prison for life," Musk tweeted, sparking more than 657,000 likes and over 104,000 re-tweets.
As for Graham, he went on to address the issue of child gender transitions more broadly, decrying society's push, in some sectors, to encourage children to make body-altering decisions.
"It's shameful that any adult would be part of feeding this confusion and pushing children over a cliff that is built on lies from the pit of hell," Graham wrote. "Some parents, politicians and so-called professionals are guilty of a masquerade of evil they are falsely calling healthcare."
He said young people face "lifelong consequences" as the result of surgeries and drugs that "maim body, mind and spirit"—and warned of the ramifications for America's current handling of the issue.
"God will judge our nation," Graham concluded. "This madness needs to stop."
