Rev. Franklin Graham rallies faithful in Harrisburg


HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, addressed thousands of Christians who gathered Thursday at the state Capitol.

Graham talked about the November election and urged the crowd to take their Christian values to the polls. He said their choice for president will influence the Supreme Court, which rules on cases involving abortion and the sanctity of marriage.

“If we’re not careful, we’re going to lose our religious freedom anyway, so we might as well go ahead and get people out there and vote and get them to vote by the busloads,” he said. “Make sure people are registered in their churches, and I’m talking about registered. Get your grandparents, your children, grandchildren; just don’t go to the graveyard and start digging up your ancestors. Don’t do that. People have done that. That’s not right. Anybody of legal age, get them out there to vote.”

Graham did not endorse either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton during the event.
