Franklin Graham Records Message Backing NC Marriage Amendment

Saturday, 28 Apr 2012 07:31 PM

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Rev. Franklin Graham has asked listeners to "take a stand on God's definition of marriage" between a man and a woman, WXII-TV, Channel 12, reports.

Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham and head of the Samaritan's Purse organization headquartered in Boone, recorded the message in support of a proposed amendment to North Carolina's constitution that would say traditional marriage is the state's only recognized domestic legal union.

The pro-amendment Vote FOR Marriage NC released Graham's audio message late Friday night, WXII reports. Anne Graham Lotz -- Franklin Graham's sister -- also has said she supports the amendment, which is on the May 8 primary ballot.
