In response to thousands of Atheists gathering on the National Mall last Saturday to rally for secularism at the 2016 Reason Rally, leading evangelist Franklin Graham pointed out the irony behind the demonstration.
Atheist activists, entertainers and performers took the stage in front of the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday to rile fellow atheists and religious "nones" to call on politicians and governments to take "reason" as priority over "religious-driven ideology."
Graham, the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, took to his Facebook page Monday to argue that "freedom-loving" Americans should be concerned by the "liberal godless kind of reason" being promoted at the rally. Graham then wrote that it is "ironic" that the gathering was held on the grounds of the Lincoln Memorial. more >>

Laurie explained: "If millions of Americans were caught up to Heaven we wouldn't be the superpower we are today. … Imagine this: if 100,000,000 people were caught up to meet the Lord in the air, if they just disappeared, do you think that would affect our nation? Well of course it would … imagine the effect on our country if 100,000,000 people — people in industry, government, military, business, agriculture, education, medicine — suddenly disappeared from the face of the Earth. … It would certainly have a crippling effect on our entire nation and upon our infrastructure. more >>
