Christian evangelist Franklin Graham — son of famed evangelist Billy Graham — commented Wednesday that, spiritually speaking, Tuesday’s election results are only sending America further down a “path of destruction”:
“Unless we’re willing to repent for our sins, we will stand in his judgment,” Graham said Wednesday, shortly after leaving a birthday party for his father, evangelist Billy Graham, in Montreat, N.C.
“I want to warn America: God is coming around. He will judge sin, and it won’t be pretty.”
In particular, Graham was referring to the re-election of Obama, a man he has accused of “waving his fist before God” by supporting abortion rights and same-sex marriage. Voters in four states Tuesday either passed laws legalizing gay unions or blocked moves to further restrict it. [...]
Graham supported Republican Mitt Romney for president. Had the former Massachusetts governor won Tuesday, “the secularization of America would not have stopped, but I think it would have slowed down a little bit,” Graham said. “Many Christians are very concerned about the country’s moral decline, particularly the president’s position on same-sex marriage.”
The threat to the country is clear, he said.
“We have God’s blessing as a nation. Scripture is clear. God blesses countries, but God also brings bedlam when countries turn their back on him. If we don’t obey his laws, He will withdraw his hand of protection.”
