The Rev. Franklin Graham is hailing a Texas judge's decision to grant an injunction to block President Obama's transgender directive for public schools nationwide.
Earlier this week, a district court judge blocked the implementation of a directive from the Obama administration that would require public schools to allow male students to use girls' bathrooms and locker rooms if they self-identify as female.
Leading evangelist Franklin Graham says Hillary Clinton resorted to a "natural tendency" when she tried to pin the use of her private email server on former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell.
As reported by The New York Times, FBI notes handed over to Congress last Tuesday show that the Democratic presidential nominee told investigators looking into the use of her private email server while serving as secretary of state that it was Powell who advised her to use a personal email account.
Powell, who served as the head of the State Department from 2001 to 2005 under President George W. Bush, defended himself on Saturday during an event in New York. more >>
Some people have a more difficult time trusting in God than others, says the Rev. Billy Graham, citing examples in the Bible to illustrate what happens when people take their eyes off of God.
In the latest installment of his syndicated column published in the Kansas City Star, the famed evangelist says he believes that some individuals do seem to have a harder time trusting in God and believing that His way is always best.
"They may be sincere believers — and yet they still have a hard time taking their hands off their situation and living by faith," says Graham. more >>
Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham is celebrating a "victory for religious freedom" after a federal judge dismissed three lawsuits against Kentucky clerk Kim Davis who refused to sign her name to marriage licenses for gay couples.
"I thank God for men and women willing to take a bold stand for biblical truth — no matter the cost," Graham wrote on Facebook on Saturday, describing how Davis refused to issue marriage licenses to same-sex couples last year because of her Christian faith, which led to her spending six days in jail.
The Liberty Counsel, which has been representing Davis, reported on Friday that all three marriage license lawsuits against the Kentucky clerk have now come to an end, with the federal district court dismissing the case, closing the files, and removing pending cases from the docket. more >>
Even though it's not a sin to live in chronic worry and fear, it's not what God wants for people, says world renowned evangelist the Rev. Billy Graham.
On Thursday, Graham gave biblical advice to a self-identifed perpetual worrier who asked: "Is it a sin to worry about the future and all the bad things that might happen to me and my family (as well as the world)? I admit I'm a worrier, but what's really wrong with that?"
Graham responded that while it's "not necessarily wrong" to have concerns about the future, excessive worrying is unhealthy both spiritually and physically. more >>
Evangelist Franklin Graham is calling President Barack Obama's decision for the United States to relinquish government control of a key component of the Internet to a private organization "dangerous" and "a shame."
Writing on his Facebook page Thursday, Graham said of the Obama administration's move to turn over government control of the Domain Naming System (DNS) to a private international organization based in California: "This isn't smart. It's another dangerous decision in a long line of bad policy moves by our government. This could potentially weaken our country and allow others access that could bring us harm."
The transfer is set to occur on October 1 and some conservative groups, although not oppposed in principle like Graham, still argue that it is a subversion of congressional authority. more >>
