Franklin Graham, the president of Samaritan’s Purse and Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said that the Supreme Court did not define marriage and therefore cannot re-define it, according to a Twitter post.
“God gave us marriage. Period. And God doesn’t change his mind,” Graham told Fox Nation. “If pastors are going to be forced to provide marriage services for gay couples, I’m not going to do it,” Graham declared.
However, Graham notes that “Long before our government came into existence, marriage was created by the One who created man and woman — Almighty God — and His decisions are not subject to review or revision by any manmade court.
“God is clear about the definition of marriage in His Holy Word: “Therefore a man shall leave his father and his mother and hold fast to his wife, and they shall become one flesh” (Genesis 2:24),” Graham released in a statement on his Facebook page.
The Defend Marriage pledge, signed by more than 50,000 people, is one of a series of measures launched by social conservatives to push back against same-sex unions.
The pledge noted that it is God’s will to have marriage being only between a man and a woman
Graham added, “I pray God will spare America from His judgment, though, by our actions as a nation, we give Him less and less reason to do so.”
