    Evangelist Franklin Graham compared 10 members of the GOP to Judas Iscariot on Thursday after they voted to approve President Donald Trump's second impeachment. "...the House Democrats impeached him because they hate him and want to do as much damage as they can," Graham wrote. "And these ten, from [Trump's] own party, joined in the feeding frenzy. It makes you wonder what the thirty pieces of silver were that [Democratic House] Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi promised for this betrayal."

    The Rev. Franklin Graham said Saturday that President Donald Trump has been right on many issues about how he has been treated during his presidency, and when he says the election was rigged or stolen, "I tend to believe him." "The President has been maligned, falsely accused, and attacked on every front since before the election in 2016," Graham posted on his Facebook page. "When President Trump says that this election has been rigged or stolen, I tend to believe him. He has a track record of being right." Graham commented that in 2016, when Trump told Americans the government...

    The Gospel has advanced powerfully in 2020, Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) President Franklin Graham told The Christian Post. In 2019, 1.3 million people gave their lives to Christ, Graham said. In 2020, 1.7 million people did. “I try to shy away from the questions on numbers. God’s the one who gives the increase. It’s not Franklin Graham and it’s not the institution,” he said. The pandemic meant that Graham had to cancel evangelistic crusades and concentrate on using new ways to spread the Gospel. Situations might change but the call to preach the Gospel faithfully...

    The Rev. Franklin Graham reacted to a Kansas middle school’s decision to sever ties with his charity project, Operation Christmas Child, and expressed doubt that “our country will ever come together.”“We don’t solicit necessarily from schools,” Graham, president of Samaritan’s Purse, said on Fox News’ “The Ingraham Angle” Friday. “Anybody can participate and what this is, this is just children there at the school that did this on their own and got their school involved." The atheist group Freedom From Religion Foundation had sent a complaint letter dated Nov. 3, to Superintendent Tony Helfrich, urging the district to take "immediate...

    Evangelist Franklin Graham and leaders of the Southern Baptist Convention have responded to Pope Francis’ endorsement of same-sex civil unions, calling it “unthinkable in light of the Word of God” and explaining that no pope or priest gets to “define sexuality or the family.”“For Pope Francis to attempt to normalize homosexuality is to say that Holy Scriptures are false, that our sins really don’t matter, and that we can continue living in them,” Graham, the president of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, wrote on Facebook.“If that were true, then Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection wouldn’t have...

Her resignation, he said, “confirms what many people already have known — The New York Times is biased...

    President Trump's surprise walk to St. John's Church Monday night was condemned by Democratic leaders and clergy in Washington, but praised by his most prominent evangelical supporter. Evangelist Franklin Graham was asked how he felt after the Episcopal Bishop of Washington, the Right Rev. Mariann Budde, accused the president of using the Bible and "one of the churches of my diocese, without permission, as a backdrop for a message antithetical to the teachings of Jesus." The son of the late Rev. Billy Graham said he was encouraged, not offended, by the president holding up a Bible.

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo is asking Samaritan’s Purse to pay state taxes after the Christian humanitarian organization discharged its last patient this week — one of the over 300 COVID-19 patients it treated at a temporary hospital in New York City’s Central Park while facing a backlash due to its statement of faith. “We’re not in a position to provide any subsidies right now because we have a $13 billion deficit,” Cuomo said at a daily press briefing this week, Fox News reported Friday. According to a New York state law, anyone working in the state for more than 14 days...

    Samaritan’s Purse has no expectation of receiving a single penny for the weeks of work they did in Central Park to combat the coronavirus. But now New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) is asking them to pay up. Earlier this week, the Rev. Franklin Graham, president of the nonprofit organization, told Faithwire, “They’re the ones who called us originally,” referring to officials with the Mount Sinai Health System in New York City. “We didn’t call them; they called us,” he continued. “And we agreed to go and we have not charged them one penny. All of our services have been...
  • Mayor Bill de Blasio’s despicable baiting of Samaritan’s Purse

    Never look a gift horse in the mouth, they say, though when Mayor Bill de Blasio is on hand, the other end of the animal is usually involved. Gotham’s chief executive this week might have accepted with some grace an offer of assistance from a crisis-tested, and devoutly Christian, emergency-relief organization — but he gave it the fisheye instead. It seems that in Blasville, evangelical Christians armed with tons of the sophisticated medical equipment so sorely lacking in the city right now, plus the expertise to use it, are presumptively suspect. And are perhaps to be expelled. Thus it was...

He referred to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., telling workers to just say "no" to returning to work. The freshman congresswoman said: "Only in America, when the president tweets about liberation, does he mean go back to work. When we have this discussion about going back or reopening, I think a...

    Special faith programming to be carried live by Fox NewsEvangelist Franklin Graham will offer a special Easter morning service from an emergency field hospital in the middle of New York City’s Central Park — a facility donated to the coronavirus relief effort by Samaritan’s Purse, a nonprofit charity long associated with the pastor’s faith outreach. “Because our nation and the world are in crisis, I want to share a message of the unshakable hope found only in Jesus Christ this Sunday,” Mr. Graham said.
