POWERFUL: Rev. Franklin Graham Just Responded to the Supreme Court Ruling Which Redefines Marriage

Reverend Franklin Graham, the head of both Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, spoke out about the Supreme Court’s political move to change the biblical definition of marriage to now include homosexuals.

“The Supreme Court of the United States has ruled today that same-sex marriage is legal in all 50 states,” Rev. Graham wrote on his public Facebook page, immediately following the ruling on Friday. “With all due respect to the court, it did not define marriage, and therefore is not entitled to change it.”

Reverend Graham wrote that the definition of marriage was defined by God and cannot be altered by a “manmade court.”

“Long before our government came into existence, marriage was created by the One who created man and woman—Almighty God—and His decisions are not subject to review or revision by any manmade court.


God is clear about the definition of marriage in His Holy Word: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24).”

“I pray God will spare America from His Judgment, though, by our actions as a nation, we give Him less and less reason to do so,” Rev. Graham asserted.

On Thursday, in anticipation of today’s SCOTUS ruling, Graham said that he agreed with one thing Obama said at a Gay Pride event at the White House yesterday.

“He said, ‘There has been an incredible shift in attitudes across the country.’ That’s true — but it is definitely not a shift for the good for America. The shift in attitudes he refers to is the moral decline we are seeing manifest daily around us. Accepting wrong as right — accepting sin as something to be proud of. Yes, that’s definitely a shift.”

“The President is leading this nation on a sinful course, and God will judge him and us as a nation if we don’t repent,” Graham proclaimed.
