Franklin Graham Defends Phil Robertson's Public Prayer That Enraged Liberals
Phil Robertson is no stranger to controversy. He nearly got kicked off of his own family's show, Duck Dynasty, for an interview he did condemning homosexuality. But the controversy has not intimidated Phil into being quiet about his faith. In fact, he continues to blow the horn, telling Americans that we desperately need to return to our roots and our faith in God.
At a Texas NASCAR race, Phil boldly prayed, “I pray Father that we put a Jesus-Man in the White House,” he prayed. “Help us do that and help us all to repent, to do what is right, to love you more and to love each other. In the name of Jesus I pray, amen.” Fox News reports that Robertson's prayer got intense backlash, with people calling him an "unapologetic bigot."
But Franklin Graham, no stranger to controversy himself, stood up in defense of Robertson on his Facebook page.
