Kirk Franklin took to defend Kanye West from a bunch of Christians who have criticized him. Many gospel singers had a problem with Franklin being featured with “The Life Of Pablo.” They even performed their single together on Saturday Night Live. Franklin claims he was criticized for taking a picture with West. He went on to say he will not turn away from his brother.

Kirk went to Instagram and posted a picture of him and Kanye with a caption saying,

“I am not him. He is my brother I am proud to do life with. No sprints, but Marathons; like most of us are on. Before one song was released, I was crucified because my brother asked me to take a picture. I will not turn my back on my brother, I will love him, prayerfully grow with him. However long he’ll have me, and however long the race takes. To a lot of my Christian family, I’m sorry he’s not good enough, Christian enough, or running at your pace…and as I read some of your comments, neither am I. That won’t stop me from running. Pray we win.”
