Liberal activists and journalists expressed outrage after former President Barack Obama praised the late U.S. evangelist Billy Graham on Wednesday.

"Billy Graham was a humble servant who prayed for so many—and who, with wisdom and grace, gave hope and guidance to generations of Americans," Obama tweeted after Graham died on Wednesday at the age of 99.

Graham, who became a de facto White House chaplain to several U.S. presidents, will become the first religious leader to lie in honor in the Capitol Rotunda next week.

Several liberals were quick to castigate Graham on Twitter for his opposition to same-sex marriage and other views on LGBTQ issues, and chided Obama for praising the Christian preacher, the Daily Caller reported.
