Washington, DC – Rev. Billy Graham is running full-page advertisements in a number of newspapers across the country, urging voters to vote for candidates that support biblical values of life, natural marriage, and religious liberty. “We are at a crossroads and there are profound moral issues at stake,” Rev. Billy Graham said. “I strongly urge you to vote for candidates who support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and woman, protect the sanctity of life, and defend our religious freedoms. The legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren and this great nation is crucial,” Graham said. “As I approach my 94th birthday, I realize this election could be my last. I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel,” he said. “Pray with me that America will remain one nation under God.”
“This statement by Rev. Billy Graham is incredibly important for many reasons,” said Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel. “Billy Graham has publically recognized how critical this election is for biblical values of life, marriage, and religious liberty and urges people to vote in support of these values. This is unprecedented for the world’s best-known evangelist. Billy Graham has always steered clear of politics. In reality, Billy Graham has merely raised his prophetic voice like any preacher should when biblical and moral values are placed in jeopardy by politicians,” said Staver.
Liberty Counsel has developed a voters’ guide, suitable for churches and other 501(c)3 organizations. “We encourage voters to educate themselves on where the candidates stand on the issues and then share that information with their friends,” said Staver.
