And Daddy Makes Three

Billy Graham has joined his son and daughter in publicly coming out in favor of denying civil equality to gay North Carolina residents.

Billy Graham on Wednesday released a statement on the proposed marriage amendment in North Carolina. The 93-year-old Graham has a full-page advertisement scheduled to run in 14 state newspapers. “At 93, I never thought we would have to debate the definition of marriage,” Graham says in the advertisement. “The Bible is clear — God’s definition of marriage is between a man and a woman. I want to urge my fellow North Carolinians to vote for the marriage amendment on Tuesday, May 8. God bless you as you vote.”

Last week Graham’s daughter declared that God will destroy North Carolina if the bill does not pass.
