    Western Journalism ^ | November 16, 2015 | Jack davis
    The root of the evil that has put Paris in mourning and threatens Western civilization is not to be found in long-winded speeches about economic justice, according to Rev. Franklin Graham. It comes down to a religion that seeks to crush everything the West holds dear. “Islam is not a peaceful religion,” Graham said Saturday on Facebook. “In the hours after the horrific attacks some said ‘TERRORISM HAS NO RELIGION.’ Do not be fooled. This attack was done in the name of Allah, the god of Islam,” Graham posted.

    The Rev. Billy Graham has issued a written warning to America's churches: "Prepare for persecution." The renowned preacher and founder of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association penned a commentary that was posted on his website last week and is slated to appear in the November edition of Decision magazine. In the magazine, Graham notes that the American church has been largely unfamiliar with persecution, writing that this "immunity to persecution that Christians in our country have experienced in the past two or three centuries is unusual."

"Russian Church during the Cold War was actively developing relations with Western Christians. We were living in difficult conditions of atheistic ideology and perceived Western civilization as Christian civilization. We appreciated the freedom in which they lived, Christians in the West, and considered them our brothers and allies" - said the Patriarch. He stressed with regret that in recent years...

    When President Barack Obama was as a candidate for President, he supported traditional marriage, (even if no one believed him.) Now, sin and moral decay has expanded so far in America that our once great nation is unrecognizable. Obama is reshaping America in his image, and that is shameful. Rev. Franklin Graham, son of legendary Rev. Billy Graham, went on a podcast recently to explain exactly why this celebration of sin is wrong. This is a message that every American should hear! Ultimately, Reverend Graham believes that a lot of the blame falls on the Obama administration, and their celebration...

We are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad. We should stop all immigration of Muslims to the U.S. until this threat with Islam has been settled. Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized--and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad.

The letter is one of the most iconic documents from of the Civil Rights era and includes Kings observations on the injustice...

Franklin Graham warned on Holocaust Remembrance Day on Thursday that another holocaust might become a reality, pointing to the influx of Muslim immigrants into Europe and the United States, who he said are "bringing their hatred of Jews and Christians with them." "Could the holocaust be repeated? I'm afraid so. Anti-Semitism is at the highest levels since the late 1930s. This is coming from the influx of Muslim immigrants to Europe, the United States, and other Western countries over the past few decades, and they are bringing their hatred of Jews and Christians with them," Graham...

    Rev. Franklin Graham has spoken out in support of Indiana Gov.

State leaders and businesses vowed to boycott the state of Indiana, accusing the state of anti-gay discrimination. Early Monday morning, Republican leaders in the Indiana General Assembly held a press conference to address the concerns and criticism. They...

    FERGUSON, Mo. (Reuters) Hours after two police officers were shot at a protest in Ferguson, Missouri, last week, a black Kenworth truck in North Carolina hauling a collapsible conference room began rolling down the highway toward the scene, intent on bringing peace and saving souls. The truck, one of Christian evangelist Billy Grahams Rapid Response Team vehicles, sped toward the latest U.S. crisis armed with chaplains trained to help people cope with everything from tornadoes to mass shootings. The police force needed chaplains after the shooting, and weve also been serving the protesters, said Al New, manager of the teams...

    President Barack Obama and his outgoing attorney general, Eric Holder, are, along with "progressives" in government, forcing "a new morality" on the American people, a "morality that does not include God" and which is "an Anti-Christ movement," said Reverend Franklin Graham. "There is an anti-Christian bias that is now in our government, has permeated our government, thats also permeated Washington but [also] at the state and local level," said Rev. Graham during a Mar. 11 interview on Washington Watch With Tony Perkins. "Its the progressives, whatever you want to call them, that are trying -- and the president is into...

    The Rev. Franklin Graham said Muslims set Christians in their killing sights for one basic reason, and one basic reason alone: to emulate their leader, Muhammad, he said. Muhammad was a man of war and he killed many people, Graham said, during a recent Fox & Friends interview with host Tucker Carlson. Jesus Christ came as a man of peace and as a follower of Christ I follow him and I want to emulate Him. But the followers of Islam are emulating the prophet Muhammad, and thats what youre seeing carried out. Graham also warned those of Christian faith and...

    The Rev. Franklin Graham gave an ominous warning to Christians living in the United States Sunday, as he expounded on how religious freedoms are being eroded stateside while believers are being persecuted throughout the world. Graham also expressed his concerns about the Obama administration's foreign policy, which has been to rebuke the nation's allies, such as Israel, while countries known to be hostile to the U.S. are attempting to shape policy by gaining influence in the Democratic Party and by giving large donations to entities such as The Clinton Foundation. "I believe we're going to see persecution in this country,"...

    While commenting on whether Western countries can unite to defeat Islamic radicals, Rev. Franklin Graham said one of the major problems is that Western governments have been infiltrated by Muslims, and in the United States in particular Muslims are advising the White House. They are part of the problem, said Rev. Graham. And we see this also in Western Europe. They have gotten into the halls of power and they are an influence. The reverend made his remarks on the Feb. 26 edition of The OReilly Factor. Asked by host Bill O'Reilly why he thinks "the world will not unite...

    The sexual revolution that began in earnest five decades ago with promises of new and liberating sexual freedoms has instead left behind a shattered moral landscape that has undermined the fabric and foundation of our nation. Casting off what was perceived as the puritanical restraints of previous generations, the '60s and '70s launched a new era of sexual experimentation. The revolution, publicly inaugurated by 1967's "Summer of Love" in San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district, promised an enlightened age of sexual morality. The new thinking said cohabitation wasn't really a problem. Divorce wasn't nearly as harmful as once thought. Promiscuity presented no...
