Franklin Graham says 2016 may be picking ‘least heathen of the two heathen’

Franklin Graham is encouraging evangelicals to vote no matter which candidates are nominated, choosing the lesser “heathen” running, but then challenging evangelicals to run for office and get involved.

“There is a left movement within the evangelical community that are telling people, ‘If so-and-so wins or this person wins don’t vote.’ I’m just saying, I don’t care who wins and who’s out there, you have to vote,” Graham said in an exclusive interview with CBN News.

“And I’m not going to tell people who to vote for, I’m not going to do that — let God tell you who to vote for,” he said. “You may have to hold your nose, you may have to decide which is the least heathen of the two heathen.”

Graham spoke at length with CBN News about his cry for America and the nation’s leaders. He did the interview as his Decision America Prayer tour rolled into Denver Tuesday, greeting about 5,000 Christians with his message to why he believes no political party or politician can turn America around.

“I want to strongly urge Christians to run for public office at every level, to get out and vote and cast their ballots for candidates who uphold biblical principles,” Graham said.

Billy Graham’s grandson has become a high profile voice in Christian circles and he made a comparison to the biblical prophet Nehemiah, who cried out to God to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem and restore hope to God’s people. Graham hopes this tour will do the same.

He is urging Christians to confess the sins of the nation, their personal sins, and those of their fathers.
