Franklin Graham rallies Christians at Missouri Capitol
JEFFERSON CITY (AP) — The son of the Rev. Billy Graham is urging Missouri's Christians to run for office and support candidates who adhere to biblical principles.
Franklin Graham delivered his message Tuesday as thousands rallied in the rain outside the state Capitol. Some attendees stepped onto ledges outside lawmakers' office windows to get a better view.
Graham made Jefferson City the 23rd stop of his 50-State Decision America Tour. He compared Christians' struggle against secularism to America's fight against communism.
He said Christians might have to hold their nose during some elections and choose the lesser of two "heathens." He said in those cases, voters should look for the candidate who will at least listen to Christians on issues such as abortion and same-sex marriage.
