    The Rev. Franklin Graham says Target CEO Brian Cornell is in denial over the reason for the company's plunging stock prices, insisting that the conservative boycott against the retailer's transgender bathroom policies is playing a key role. "Target stock is tumbling after they announced a pro-transgender restroom policy allowing men to use women's bathrooms and changing rooms. Stock value has fallen 20 percent and shareholder value has lost $10 billion since they began promoting this dangerous policy," Graham wrote in a Facebook post on Monday. He then referred to a media statement made by Cornell, where he denied suggestions that...

    The Rev. Franklin Graham has strongly condemned Mayor Bill de Blasio's call for a boycott of popular fast-food chain Chick-fil-A, which is opening a new location in the New York City borough of Queens, just because its Christian owners believe in the biblical definition of marriage. "Can you imagine a city where a popular, successful business is singled out and attacked by the mayor who calls for a boycott — all because the business owners let it be known that they operate by Christian principles and believe in God's definition of marriage?" Graham, the president of Samaritan's Purse and Billy...

    The Hypocrisy of PayPal By Julio Severo PayPal has vowed to discontinue the expansion of its services in North Carolina after its governor passed a law to protect women and children against homosexual predators by not allowing biological men to use women’s restrooms and locker rooms. In answer to the PayPal boycott, on Facebook Franklin Graham, son of the legendary evangelist Billy Graham, said, “PayPal gets the hypocrite of the year award!… PayPal operates in countries including Saudi Arabia, Nigeria, and Yemen for Pete’s sake.

    The Rev. Franklin Graham has strongly condemned PayPal after the organization announced it is cancelling plans to bring more than 400 jobs and a $3.6 million investment into Charlotte, North Carolina with its new operation center, because of an objection to the state's recently passed transgender law. The ordinance, signed by Gov. Pat McCrory, limits the use of bathrooms, locker rooms and showers to persons of the same biological sex, according to NBC. "The legislation invalidates protections of the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender citizens and denies these members of our community equal rights under the law," PayPal...

Graham in an interview with CBN News. “We see in Syria and Iraq where they cut the heads of Christians, they rape the women, take them as sex slaves.” “They take the Yazidis, the minorities, and they do the same thing,” he said. “They kill the men but take...

The summit, called 'The World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians,' will be taking place from October 28-30, 2016. Franklin Graham announced on his Facebook page on Wednesday morning that 'The World Summit in Defense of Persecuted Christians' is called in view of rapidly increasing persecution of Christians around the world in recent years, as also documented by last year's study on persecution by Open Doors, which found that 2015 was the worst year of Christian persecution.

    Donald Trump has criticized Pope Francis for questioning his own faith, but defended his own questions about fellow GOP candidate Ted Cruz's faith as legitimate. Last week, Pope Francis suggested Trump was "not Christian" for his comments about building a wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. At the time, Trump said, "No leader, especially a religious leader, should have the right to question another man's religion or faith." But Trump has been similarly critical of Cruz's faith. Asked by moderator John Dickerson how he squares those two positions, Trump said he never questioned Cruz's faith. "No, I never questioned Ted's--anything having...

"I refuse to be silent and watch the future of our children and grandchildren be offered up on pagan altars of personal pleasure and immorality." The Supreme Court has already redefined marriage. The nation has become a killing field for Islamic radicals. And Christians have become targets for practicing their First Amendment rights.

    DES MOINES, Iowa, January 6, 2016 (LifeSiteNews) – The Reverend Franklin Graham believes the United States of America is in danger, and will only be saved by turning back to God. And this can only be accomplished by Christians praying and bringing their faith to the public square. America’s problems are across the board, Rev. Graham said; spiritual, economic, and even racial, an area in which he believes the country is actually going backward. And he insists the answer is not found in politics. “We have economic problems; we have political problems,” Rev. Graham stated yesterday in Des Moines, IA....

    The Rev. Franklin Graham quitting the Republican Party poses a significant blow to the GOP's 2016 White House aspirations, especially if other evangelical pastors follow suit and their millions-plus congregations stay away from the polls. Graham suggested earlier this week that the last straw was congressional Republicans funding Planned Parenthood in the recently passed, $1.8 trillion tax-and-spending package, despite revelations about the group harvesting fetal tissue. However, he made clear Wednesday night that the funding was only part of the reason he left the GOP to become an independent. "It's not just that," Graham said on Fox News' "On the...

    Franklin Graham recently announced his renunciation of any previous affiliation with the Republican Party after 387 members of Congress treasonously voted for a bill that not only funds terrorism abroad, but also at home. Franklin Graham expressed that he cannot support any political party that deliberately funds, with government money, the dismembering of baby body parts and "selling" of fetal tissue. Graham has rightly compared Planned Parenthood to the Nazis, who also experimented on human beings. Graham has previously mentioned that he has no faith in any political party and that Christians should run for office. However, he announced on...

Graham has previously said he has no faith in any political party, but his apparent renunciation of his Republican affiliation is an indication of anger on the right and the strong interest many disaffected evangelicals have shown in populist outsiders such as Donald Trump.

After all of the appalling facts revealed this year about Planned Parenthood, our representatives in Washington had a chance to put a stop to this, but they didn't. There's no question-taxpayers should not be paying for abortions! Abortion is murder in God's eyes. Seeing and hearing Planned Parenthood talk nonchalantly about selling baby parts from aborted...

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.

His ostentatious wealth, his colorful language, his serial marriages—he was supposed to be the anti-Huckabee, the candidate least appealing to conservative Christians and their reality TV-unfriendly sensibilities. Then there was Trump’s cavalier discussion of his faith at the Ames, Iowa, Family Leadership Summit in July—where he said he doesn’t ask God for forgiveness.

    The Rev. Franklin Graham has spoken out against what he calls an "outright attack" on freedom of speech after Oregon's Bureau of Labor & Industries Commissioner Brad Avakin upheld an earlier ruling that forces Christian bakery owners Aaron and Melissa Klein to pay $135,000 for refusing to participate in a lesbian wedding. "Give me a break. In my opinion, this couple should pay the Kleins $135,000 for all they've been through," Graham wrote on Facebook on Sunday. "Even more outrageous is that Avakian has also now ordered the Kleins to 'cease and desist' from speaking publicly about not wanting to...

    Franklin Graham’s word is respected worldwide, through his work with Samaritan’s Purse and the organization his father founded, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, and now he’s begun warning America of God’s looming judgment. Because of the nation’s adoption, through its Supreme Court, of mandatory recognition of same-sex marriage across the states. “Our nation will not like what’s at the end of this rainbow,” he wrote this week. “‘Pride goeth before a fall.’ Supreme Court Justice [Antonin] Scalia used Proverbs 16:18 in his comments regarding the court’s disappointing and dangerous ruling about same-sex marriage,” Graham wrote. “He rightly called the decision...

    A number of prominent conservatives seem convinced that Martin Luther King, Jr., would have fought marriage equality. They are probably wrong. In their fight against the Supreme Court’s same-sex marriage decision, leading conservatives have been turning to an unlikely source for inspiration: Martin Luther King’s “Letter from Birmingham Jail” (PDF), the collection of notes that King smuggled out of his jail cell during his eight-day detention for protesting the Jim Crow laws that sanctioned discrimination across the South. The letter is one of the most iconic documents from of the Civil Rights era and includes King’s observations on the injustice...

    Leading Evangelist Franklin Graham is warning Christians nationwide that they should be ready to face persecution if they wish to stand by the biblical definition of marriage following last Friday's U.S. Supreme Court ruling, which legalized same-sex marriage throughout the United States. Despite President Barack Obama claiming that the Supreme Court's ruling in Obergefell v. Hodges is a "victory for a America," Graham, the president of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse, asserted in an interview with Fox News' Todd Starnes last weekend that the United States is really the true "loser" because the ruling could bring...

    On Tuesday night, Franklin Graham announced he will embark on a 50-state tour of the United States next year. He made the following announcement on his Facebook page: America is in trouble. At 62 years of age, I’ve lived long enough to learn that neither the Democrats nor the Republicans can turn this country around; no political party or politician is the answer. The only hope for this country is Almighty God and His Son Jesus Christ. Next year I am planning to travel to all 50 states to conduct prayer rallies—we are calling this the Decision America Tour.

    This past week the political left (disguised poorly as religious leaders) unleashed an all out assault on one of the few leading Christian leaders that has the audacity to take his faith beyond the pulpit and into the global marketplace, hoping in every way, to make a difference. And what was the motivation for those who spewed the venom in the direction of Franklin Graham—joint head of both the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association as well as Samaritan’s Purse? Put simply Franklin Graham offered three concrete reminders for how we as a nation could remedy some—if not many—instances in which...

    Commenting on the White House being illuminated on Friday with gay-rainbow lights to celebrate homosexual marriage, Rev. Franklin Graham said it was "outrageous" and a "slap in the face" to millions of Americans who support real marriage, and added that because God gave the rainbow sign to Noah following the flood, it is an image forever "associated with His judgment" and a sign of "God's judgment to come." Franklin Graham, son of world-renowned pastor Billy Graham, further said that "one day God is going to judge sin -- all sin" and "only those who are found righteous will be able...

    President Obama is calling the Supreme Court ruling on same-sex marriage a "victory for America," but the Rev. Franklin Graham warns Obama is leading the nation on a sinful course and "God will judge him and us as a nation if we don't repent." At a Gay Pride event in the White House prior to the court ruling this week, Obama said, "There has been an incredible shift in attitudes across the country," and he was right, Graham wrote in a post on his Facebook page. "But it is definitely not a shift for the good of America. The shift...

    Evangelical leader the Rev. Franklin Graham has responded to critics of his decision to discontinue business with Wells Fargo following the company's TV ad featuring a same-sex couple. The head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and Samaritan's Purse had a column published last week arguing that the boycott was not about Wells Fargo being "gay-friendly." "Indeed, the bank we transferred our accounts to — BB&T based in Winston-Salem, N.C. — is also widely considered gay-friendly. In fact, it may surprise some to learn that I think every business should be gay-friendly," wrote Graham "By that I mean businesses —...

    Wells Fargo already lost a multi-million-dollar customer last week. Now, the bank can expect to lose a few more. American Family Association (AFA) has sent an Action Alert to its hundreds of thousands of friends and supporters, urging Christians to close their Wells Fargo accounts, as the financial institution becomes an even more staunch supporter of the LGBT lifestyle. "For years, Wells Fargo has supported a lifestyle that is not in line with biblical standards, so now it's time for Christians to pull their business from the bank," said AFA President Tim Wildmon. "Franklin Graham said it best. Banks should...
