(CNS News) — The San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus posted a video last week about how they are “coming for your children,” and will “convert” them, “bit by bit.” In response, Christian leader Franklin Graham said they were proclaiming the “truth about” their agenda, which is a real “threat” to families and society.
In a July 10 post on Facebook, Rev. Graham wrote, “This gay group says they’re ‘coming for your children’ — and they’re telling the truth about it. We knew it, but I’m surprised they admitted it.”

“In a video posted to YouTube last week, the San Francisco Gay Men’s Chorus recorded a virtual performance of a song claiming that the LGBTQ community would ‘convert’ the children of conservatives,” reported Graham.
He continued, “Parts of the song says: ‘We’ll convert your children – happens bit by bit, quietly and subtly… The world’s getting kinder, Gen Z’s gayer… We’re coming for them. We’re coming for your children… The gay agenda is coming home. The gay agenda is here.'”
“One verse even says,” Graham reported, “‘You think that we’ll corrupt your kids if our agenda goes unchecked. Funny, just this once, you’re correct.” Wow. That pretty much says it all, doesn’t it?”
“After outrage from viewers on YouTube, the group took the video down, and tried to say it was an attempt at some kind of humor,” said Graham. “I don’t see any humor, and neither do a lot of other parents and grandparents, but I see a driving agenda and a threat that is real.”
“As followers of Jesus Christ, we should have an agenda as well,” he said. “We need to stand boldly with the Word of God and teach the next generations the biblical #TRUTH that can impact their lives both now and for eternity.”
Franklin Graham is the son of the late-Pastor Bill Graham. He currently oversees the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the international aid group Samaritan’s Purse.
