Billy Graham’s son believes gay marriage and Obama’s win jeopardizes US society

'There is no way you can have a family with two females or two males'

Billy Graham’s son believes gay marriage and Obama’s win jeopardizes US society
19 November 2012

Franklin Graham believes that Americans turned their backs on God recently when they re-elected President Barack Obama to a second term.

The son of Billy Graham, the famed evangelist who has been spiritual advisor to several US presidents, says in an interview that Obama’s second term will ‘usher in the largest changes in our society since the Civil War.’

He takes particular issue with gay marriage telling the Christian Broadcasting Network: ‘There is no room for us to consider gay marriage or same-sex marriage. That is redefining what God gave us.’

Obama stated earlier this year that he believes same-sex couples should be allowed to be married in the US. On the day that he was elected, voters in the states of Washington, Maryland and Maine approved gay marriage ballot measures while voters in Minnesota defeated the proposal to ban it in their state.

Graham claims that gay marriage ‘takes the family away and there is no way you can have a family with two females or two males, if you just think biologically how God made us our plumbing is completely different.’

Franklin Graham is CEO and president of Billy Graham Evangelistic Association. His father is 93, in frail health, and rarely makes public appearances these days.

But it was his father’s name on a full-page ad in the Wall Street Journal last month denouncing gay marriage as well as in advertisements last May in support of North Carolina’s anti-gay Amendment One.
