Evangelist Franklin Graham visited Jackson, Mississipi, today as part of his promise to go to every state capital this year before the presidential election. This came after state legislators passed a measure that would allow churches and some businesses to deny services to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.
Graham said he had not come to endorse or oppose any specific legislation, but told reporters after the 40-minute rally that he supports bills that will allow believers to live according to their chosen faith. This would include, in his view, the Christian view on same-sex marriages.
Graham is telling those attending the state capital rallies that Christians should become more involved in politics and thus bring Biblical principles into the public square. The scion of famed Billy Graham, he said that Christians must resist the increase of anti-Christian and secularist movements, which he described as the "enemy."
