Controversial conservative Christian and evangelist Rev. Franklin Graham gave a typically outspoken interview last week, telling David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network that Obama's second term will "usher in the largest changes in our society since the Civil War." He also maintained that President Barack Obama's reelection is proof that America has "turned our back on God."
As Right Wing Watch points out, the noted religious right leader told Brody that both parties have lost sight of moral values.
"We need someone like a Jerry Falwell to come back and resurrect the Moral Majority movement where you get people that have a moral background who are willing to come together and vote for moral issues that are important to this nation," Brody said during the interview.
Graham singles out gay marriage as an area where Americans have lost sight of God's directive.
Same-sex marriage puts society in jeopardy, he told Brody, because it "takes the family away and there is no way you can have a family with two females or two males, if you just think biologically how God made us our plumbing is completely different."
"There is no room for us to consider gay marriage or same-sex marriage," Graham said, "that is redefining what God gave us."
The interview comes on the heels of Graham's interview with Newsmax's Kathleen Walter on Thursday, in which he reiterated the point that the country is becoming secularized -- a trend that may hasten the country's destruction.
"In the last four years, we have begun to turn our backs on God," Graham told Walter. "We have taken God out of our education system. We have taken him out of government. You have lawyers that sue you every time you mention the name of Jesus Christ in any public forum. What has happened is we have allowed ourselves to take God out everything that we do - and I believe that God will judge our nation one day."
And, "maybe God will have to bring our nation to our knees - to where that we just have a complete economic collapse" to do that, Graham said. "Maybe at that point, people will again call upon the name of almighty God."
