Franklin Graham Response to the President’s Support of Same-Sex Marriage

By   •   May 10, 2012

“On Tuesday my state of North Carolina became the 31st state to approve a constitutional amendment defining marriage as being between a man and a woman. While the move to pass amendments defining marriage is relatively new, the definition of marriage is 8,000 years old and was defined not by man, but by God Himself.

In changing his position from that of Senator/candidate Obama, President Obama has, in my view, shaken his fist at the same God who created and defined marriage. It grieves me that our president would now affirm same-sex marriage, though I believe it grieves God even more.

The institution of marriage should not be defined by presidents or polls, governors or the media. The definition was set long ago and changing legislation or policy will never change God’s definition. This is a sad day for America. May God help us.”

A classic message from Billy Graham on the family: In a World of Chaos, Is Your Family Secure?

    Thank you Franklin for crying loud and sparing not; lifting up your voice like a trumpet in Zion… showing the people their transgressions and sin. These are signs that we are truly living in the last days. Look up! Our redemption draws near!

  4. Joyce says:

    Isn't it up to us as Christians to love one another as we are loved, and to not judge others or hold them in contempt? As the mother of four, I will not refuse my full love and acceptance to any of my children, or any other children of God.

  5. ReAnn says:

    Thank you for never budging on God's principles … so many leaders are compromising to the point of apostasy … and relieved to see that this ministry is not redefining what's right and wrong … Amen.
