Graham Says Christians Should Deepen Political Work

Jackson, Miss. Evangelist Franklin Graham brought his state capitol prayer rally tour to Mississippi Wednesday in the wake of lawmakers passing a bill that would let churches and some private businesses deny services to gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people.

Though Graham said Wednesday that he didn’t come to Jackson to endorse or oppose any particular legislation, Graham made it clear to reporters after the 40-minute rally that he supports legislation to allow Christians to live out their faith, and in his view that includes disapproval of same-sex marriages.
