  • The Graham Family Legacy in North Korea

    Franklin’s father, Billy, visited the DPRK in 1992 and 1994, and his mother Ruth returned in 1997 after attending high school in Pyongyang in the 1930s. “When I was growing up my mother spoke often about her experiences here, and one of the high points of her life was the opportunity she had to return in 1997,” Franklin said when he landed at Pyongyang airport in 2008. At the conclusion of her six-day visit in 1997, Mrs. Graham summarized her experience as one of the true highlights of her life. “Almost nothing remains from my school days here during the...

    Remember when Rosie O'Donnell was the charming, friendly and fun host of a daily talk show? Sigh, those were the days. In her latest political rant on Twitter, the actress/comedian got straight to the point with House Speaker Paul Ryan on what she thinks of his tax reform bill. It had something to do with his being a fake Christian."paul ryan - don't talk about Jesus after what u just did to our nation - u will go straight to hell u screwed up fake altar boy," she told him.Evangelist Franklin Graham, son of the beloved pastor Billy Graham, posted...

    LONDON, England, December 15, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – British parliamentarians along with over 6,000 people have signed an online petition to ban world-famous American evangelist Franklin Graham from entry into the country because they say he has used “hate speech” against “Muslims and LGBT people.” Graham is scheduled to speak in the U.K., in Blackpool, Sept. 2018. The evangelist has taken a strong Biblical stance against homosexuality, calling it “a sin” and warning those engaging in homosexual acts about the judgment of God. He has called Christians to boycott businesses that promote the LGBT agenda. He criticized Disney earlier this year...

    Muslim and left-wing politicians are urging the home secretary to refuse UK entry to Franklin Graham. The UK, once admired for its Churchillian defense of freedom in the face of bombings, bloodshed and the blitzkrieg. Today, the UK is infamous for just the opposite: stunning capitulation to the most extreme and brutal ideology on the face of the earth, sharia. While the UK welcomes the most vicious hate-filled Muslim preachers and jihad inciters onto their shores, they have banned the likes of me and are currently working to ban the righteous Franklin Graham. Stunning. The left has all but destroyed...

    Evangelist Franklin Graham accused people in Washington who are condemning Roy Moore of being hypocrites, and said Moore's detractors have committed “much worse” indiscretions than the conservative judge, who has been accused of sexual assault. “The hypocrisy of Washington has no bounds. So many denouncing Roy Moore when they are guilty of doing much worse than what he has been accused of supposedly doing. Shame on those hypocrites,” tweeted Graham, the president of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

    Unknown to the general public and ignored by the academic and foreign affairs establishments, Americans once were leaders of religion, education, and intellectual life in Pyongyang, as missionaries who created the foremost Christian community in Northeast Asia. Before the Soviet Union installed an atheist Communist regime in Pyongyang headed by Kim Il Sung, the city was the center of the Presbyterian Church in Asia, and hundreds of thousands of Korean Christians lived there and elsewhere in what is now North Korea. It was a union of Koreans and Americans that set the course that made South Korea the majority Christian...
  • Franklin Graham: ‘Politicians Should Stop Saying Islam Is a Religion of Peace’

    Celebrated evangelical preacher Franklin Graham has urged politicians and other world leaders to stop insisting that Islam is a religion of peace, when the exact opposite is true. In the wake of this week’s deadly attacks by jihadists in Barcelona, Rev. Graham—the son of Billy Graham—tweeted that politicians should stop saying “Islam is a religion of peace”: In other words, the religious ideology behind Islam itself, rather that the extremism of a given group such as the Islamic State, is often what leads to the violence and terrorism carried out against infidels by Muslims. In his politically incorrect text, Graham...

    One of the nation’s most-respected evangelical Christian leaders denounced a federal court ruling regarding a Washington state coach who was punished for praying after a football game. On Wednesday the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the Bremerton School District was justified in suspending Coach Joe Kennedy after he took a knee and prayed silently at midfield after a football game. “When Kennedy kneeled and prayed on the fifty-yard line immediately after games while in view of students and parents, he spoke as a public employee, not as a private citizen, and his speech therefore was constitutionally unprotected,” the...
  • Rev. Franklin Graham Issues Brutal Response to Charlottesville… Libs Furious

    08/17/2017 10:16:31 AM PDT · by SeekAndFind · 19 replies
    In a scathing, and what many might call unexpected, missive posted to his Facebook account, the Rev. Franklin Graham fired back at critics who would blame President Trump for the attack in Charlottesville, Virginia over the weekend. That attack claimed the life of one counter-protester, according to the Richmond Times-Dispatch, in addition to two Virginia State troopers who died in a helicopter crash while monitoring the white supremacist demonstration that started the unrest. Posted Sunday night, Graham’s statement said that if earthly political figures don’t want to put the blame where it belongs — on evil itself — that there’s...

    Westside Christian Fellowshihp ^ | Jan 15, 2011 | Shane Idleman
    A friend recently asked, “Where are those with uncompromising power and God-given authority in our pulpits today?” His statement reminded me of the desperate need for passionate, spirit-filled preachers focused on pleasing God rather than man. Our culture’s false perception of God as a cosmic ball of love, or a doting grandfather desperately needs to be challenged. Unfortunately, difficult truths are often compromised, watered-down, or avoided altogether in the hope of “not offending,” “securing an audience,” or building a “mega-ministry.” As a result, the church is a mile wide but only an inch deep; judgment is never mentioned, repentance is...

    Our politicians are set to vote today on the American Health Care Act, to "repeal and replace" Obamacare. Pray that they will do the right thing for the American people. Obamacare is going to fail regardless, so a change has to be made. Many of our politicians are weak morally and spiritually, corrupted by greed and power. Join me in praying for them today as they take this crucial vote. America needs healing that can come from God alone—our hearts need to be healed.

    As soon as the news broke last week that Disney’s new Beauty and the Beast movie would feature an “exclusively gay moment,” Franklin Graham called for a boycott of Disney in a Facebook post that has since been shared almost 100,000 times. The next day, a drive-in theater in Alabama announced that it would not show the movie, while, even before Franklin Graham’s comment was posted, the conservative group One Million Moms called for a Disney boycott, with a clear warning: “Alerting all parents! In a first for the Disney Channel, a Disney XD show subtly displayed several gay kisses...

    Franklin Graham, the president and CEO of the humanitarian aid mission Samaritan’s Purse and one of the world’s best-known Christian leaders, slammed an upcoming Planned Parenthood fundraiser that will be keynoted by former President George W. Bush’s daughter, Barbara, as akin to raising money for the Nazis during World War II. In a Facebook post, Graham wrote: “Planned Parenthood is the #1 abortion provider in the United States. Raising funds for this organization is like raising money to fund a Nazi death camp – like Auschwitz, except for innocent babies in their mother’s wombs!

    Rev. Franklin Graham said President Donald Trump is correct about the news media today, that they lie and create "fake news," and added that the media should do what the Bible instructs, "You shall not circulate a false report" (Exodus 23:1). "President Donald J. Trump has been saying what we all know—that the news media has been lying," said Rev. Graham in a Feb. 19 post on Facebook. "In today’s terminology, creating fake news." "Fake news is nothing new," he said. "It was going on in the Bible. When Jesus died on the cross for our sins and was placed...

The crowds across the mall were superbly self-controlled and respectful, all standing as a cross section of America’s best.

    he Council on American-Islamic Relation, a Muslim group that is unlikely to wield the kind of power over the Donald Trump administration as they did over the current president, is calling on Trump to dis-invite Rev. Franklin Graham from Friday’s inauguration ceremony. In a press release, CAIR said that Graham was a “notorious Islamophobe” who had no business speaking at the event. “If President-elect Trump truly seeks to unite our nation as he promised in his acceptance speech, he will limit the list of those offering prayers at the inauguration to religious leaders who work to bring us together, not...

    The Council on American-Islamic Relations, a Muslim-rights group designated by the Justice Department as a terrorist co-conspirator, is calling on Donald Trump to drop Rev. Franklin Graham as one of six clergy who will offer prayers at the Jan. 20 inauguration ceremony.
