Evangelist Billy Graham’s Son, Franklin on President Obama Calling Same-Sex Marriage Ruling a ‘Victory for America’: ‘God Will Judge Him, Us if We Don’t Repent’
President Barack Obama called the landmark Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage a “victory for America,” but Rev. Franklin Graham, who is Evangelist Billy Graham’s son warns that the United States President is leading the nation on a sinful course and “God will judge him and us as a nation if we don’t repent,” Christian Post reports!
At a Gay Pride event in the White House prior to the court ruling this week, Obama said, “There has been an incredible shift in attitudes across the country,” and he was right, Graham wrote in a post on his Facebook page.
“But it is definitely not a shift for the good of America. The shift in attitudes he refers to is the moral decline we are seeing manifest daily around us,” Graham, who leads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote.
“Accepting wrong as right—accepting sin as something to be proud of. Yes, that’s definitely a shift. Should we be surprised that he thanked the LGBT community for all that they had helped him accomplish during his time as president?” Graham added, noting that Obama said, “A lot of what we’ve accomplished over these last six and a half years has been because of you.”
“The President is leading this nation on a sinful course, and God will judge him and us as a nation if we don’t repent,” Graham concluded.
The Supreme Court ruled Friday by a 5-to-4 vote that the Constitution guarantees a right to gay marriage, a decision Obama called a “victory for America.”
“No longer may this liberty be denied,” Justice Anthony M. Kennedy wrote for the majority in the decision. “No union is more profound than marriage, for it embodies the highest ideals of love, fidelity, devotion, sacrifice and family. In forming a marital union, two people become something greater than once they were.”
