Kirk Franklin Opposes Trump’s “Muslim Ban” & Epically Shuts Down Twitter Troll in the Name of Jesus

Gospel singer Kirk Franklin may be a man of God, but one twitter troll learned very quickly that he is not the one to try.

President Donald Trump’s illegal executive order banning people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States caused uproar and sparked protests across the nation. Many expressed their thoughts on social media, including celebrities.

Although Christian, Franklin took to his own Twitter account on Saturday (Jan. 28) to stand up for his Muslim brothers and sisters.

I am a Christian who would rather sit at the table with a Muslim brother than ban him from a home that wasn't originally mine…

What happened today is not biblical Christianity. This is politics. Pro-life should mean ALL LIFE.
I'm not part of that Christian club.

"For God so loved the world…"-John 3:16. That's who I wanna be like. Goodnight.

A Trump troll felt some sort of way regarding Franklin’s compassion towards people of another faith and left an ominous comment about the singer’s daughter.

.@kirkfranklin I trust u’ll be leaving ur doors unlocked tonight. Oh & ur brothers want to know if u have a daughter.

Franklin gave a brilliant comeback – in Jesus’ name, of course!

@HistoryCarper yes I have a daughter and the ability to protect her. Please come so I can have a reason to introduce you to it in Jesus name

So yea, I dare anyone to run up in Kirk Franklin’s house. Social media approved of Franklin’s epic clapback as well.

After his posts went viral, Franklin returned to Twitter Sunday (Jan. 29) to further explain why he defended another religion and called those of the Muslim faith his “brother.”

Morning family. Since my tweet about Muslim ban yesterday, my timeline has been filled with people fighting with each other to be right…

Using God as their defense and attacking my theology for using the word "brother" to define my relationship with someone different than me-

— Kirk Franklin (@kirkfranklin) January 29, 2017

It was a term of endearment. But because we have been fed fear we're quick to react and not give grace to each other.

— Kirk Franklin (@kirkfranklin) January 29, 2017

Everyone will lose. No one wins when the agenda is to be right. I don't know one does. But pride will kill this country..

— Kirk Franklin (@kirkfranklin) January 29, 2017

Franklin has been outspoken in the past and typically supports inclusiveness. It’s great that he would use his platform to advocate for people who are of a different religion than or those that may share different beliefs/opinions.

Though he is all about love and Jesus, don’t get it twisted. The moral of the story is don’t underestimate Kirk Franklin; he doesn’t play any games.
