The Rev. Franklin Graham, president of Samaritans' Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, believes that the sexual revolution of the 1960s has "severely weakened" the United States from within.
"Our culture, like ancient cultures that ultimately were destroyed in large part due to their own moral depravity, has been severely weakened," Graham wrote in the February issue of Decision magazine.
"A stable family unit committed to the truth and precepts of the Bible was once the foundation and backbone of our nation. That model is now the exception, not the rule," he asserted. more >>

Leading Evangelist Franklin Graham took to Facebook on Thursday to respond to President Barack Obama's implication at the National Prayer Breakfast that ISIS' brutality abuse of religious minorities in Iraq and Syria is similar to that of Christian brutality over 1,000 years ago.
In a post on his public Facebook page, Graham, the son of world-renowned Evangelist Billy Graham and the current president of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and humanitarian organization Samaritan's Purse, argued that just because people have used Jesus' name for "evil" purposes in the past does not mean that Jesus actually called on his followers to do such horrible acts, like the Crusades.
"Today at the National Prayer Breakfast, the President implied that what ISIS is doing is equivalent to what happened over 1000 years ago during the Crusades and the Inquisition," Graham wrote. "Mr. President — Many people in history have used the name of Jesus Christ to accomplish evil things for their own desires. But Jesus taught peace, love and forgiveness." more >>

Leading evangelist Franklin Graham says that while his father, world-renowned evangelist Billy Graham, rarely addressed issues concerning secular society, he's doing so because unlike when his father grew up, the U.S. is controlled by secularists who want to "deny that Jesus ever existed."
Speaking at the two-day Oklahoma State Evangelism Conference in Oklahoma City, Graham called on all Christians to become more active in their local, state and national politics, urging them to take back control of America's now-secular society that mocks and ridicules Christians for their beliefs.
The 62 year old, who's the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the president of Samaritan's Purse humanitarian organization, explained that many criticize him for chastising secularism because his father did not talk about it. However, Graham explained that his father never needed to address the issue because when his father was growing up, America had a very Christian-oriented society. more >>
