Franklin Graham Publicly Scolded Bruce Springsteen for NC Concert Cancellation

 

Viral Facebook post allegedly written by the Rev. Franklin Graham that criticized Bruce Springsteen for cancelling a North Carolina concert because he disagreed with a law that banned transsexuals from using women's restrooms and locker rooms.

iRumorMill.com Determination: Real

Franklin Graham Scolds Springsteen

The post was real found on Franklin Graham's Facebook timeline.

In his April 9, 2016 post Rev. Graham said, "Bruce Springsteen, a long-time gay rights activist, has cancelled his Greensborough, North Carolina concert. He says the NC law ‪#‎HB2‬ to prevent men from being able to use women's restrooms and locker rooms is going "backwards instead of forwards." Well, to be honest, we need to go back! Back to God. Back to respecting and honoring His commands. Back to common sense. Mr. Springsteen, a nation embracing sin and bowing at the feet of godless secularism and political correctness is not progress. Iím thankful North Carolina has a governor, Pat McCrory, and a lieutenant governor, Dan Forest, and legislators who put the safety of our women and children first! HB2 protects the safety and privacy of women and children and preserves the human rights of millions of faith-based citizens of this state.

Springsteen cancelled a North Carolina appearance citing his disagreement with state law #HB2, which prevents men from using restrooms and locker rooms designated for women.

The reaction to the concert cancellation by fans was found all over the internet, mostly venting disappointment with the 66 year-old rock and roller. 

According to an Apr , 2016 article by the Greensborough News and Records site, 1500 tickets were sold for the event," ranging in price from $68 to $150, will be refunded at the point of purchase." 

One News and Records reader's reaction to Springsteen's decision pretty much summed it up, "People buy tickets to see you perform not give your political viewpoints."

On April 12, 2016 NC Governor Pat McCrory signed Executive Order 93, which extended protections and affirm privacy of citizens. According to NBC's Charlotte affiliate WCNC the executive order "clarifies existing state law and provides new protection for North Carolina residents."

Governorís Office said, "Executive Order 93 does the following: Maintains the common sense gender-specific restroom and locker room facilities in government buildings and schools. Affirms the private sectorís right to establish its own restroom and locker room policies. Affirms the private sector and local governmentsí right to establish its own non-discrimination employment policies for its own employees Expands the stateís employment policy for state employees to cover sexual orientation and gender identity Seeks legislation to reinstate the right to sue in state court for discrimination."
