Billy Graham: "Marriage is the Foundation of our Society and Must Be Protected"

The Reverend Billy Graham has taken out full-page ads in 14 North Carolina Newspapers endorsing North Carolina's Amendment One. From CNN:

The Rev. Billy Graham, the world's best-known evangelist, has endorsed a ballot initiative to constitutionally ban gay marriage in his home state of North Carolina, a rare move for a preacher who has typically avoided political fights.

North Carolinians will vote on the state's Marriage Amendment Act before North Carolina voters next Tuesday....

'Watching the moral decline of our country causes me great concern,' the 93-year-old pastor, who has prayed with every president since Dwight Eisenhower, said in a statement on the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association website. 'I believe the home and marriage is the foundation of our society and must be protected.'

The statement continued to say that Graham 'never thought we would have to debate the definition of marriage.'"

Bless the good old preacher! If you would like to support North Carolinians as they stand up for the common good of society, click on the VoteforMarriageNC button in the right-hand panel.
