The Rev. Franklin Graham has responded to the terror attacks in Brussels on Tuesday by calling for the U.S. to temporary halt immigration to people from Muslim countries, warning that otherwise the terror seen in Europe is coming to America.
"Join me in praying for the victims and families of the Muslim terrorist attack in Belgium today. Islamists have told us we will see more of these attacks and we have to take their threats seriously," Graham wrote on Facebook Tuesday.
"I have long supported a temporary halt to immigration, especially for those coming from Muslim countries, until we have a vetting program that works and we can know who these people are. If we can't get an accurate background check, they don't come in. It's as simple as that," he added. more >>

In a post published to Facebook Saturday, Graham wrote about the apparent "Trump Madness," wherein the billionaire candidate seems to be the focus of "everything in the news, even March Madness."
Christians should not allow themselves to become discouraged by the words of those who have not found Jesus, the Rev. Billy Graham says, advising believers to ignore the mockery that comes from secular society.
Responding to a question posted to the Kansas City Star by a woman who asked what she should do when her husband mocks her faith, Graham writes: "such behavior should be off-limits in any marriage, regardless of the reason."
Graham adds that the woman should not be discouraged by negative language, saying that ultimately, people who criticize religion have an argument with God and no one else. more >>
The Reverend Franklin Graham recently stated that Christians need to vote come November and that might include having to choose "the least heathen of the two."
In an interview with CBN in Denver earlier this week, Rev. Graham stressed the importance of evangelical Christians being involved in the electoral process, saying "I don't care who wins and who's out there, you have to vote."
"And I'm not going to tell people who to vote for, I'm not going to do that — let God tell you who to vote for," said Graham. "You may have to hold your nose, you may have to decide which is the least heathen of the two heathen." more >>
Although the Bible does not offer a physical description of Jesus, one day all Christians will know what he looks like, the Rev. Billy Graham wrote in a recent post.
Responding to a question on the "My Answers" portion of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association's website, the Christian leader explains that the Bible has not offered a physical description of Jesus, and no artists at the time of Jesus' life on earth created an image of him.
There could be several reasons for this, Graham explains, including that it wasn't customary at the time for Jewish people to have a portrait of themselves created, and usually only very wealthy people were able to do so. more >>
