Rev. Graham: No President in My Lifetime Has Defended the Christian Faith Like Trump

by MICHAEL W. CHAPMAN December 7, 2017

In reference to remarks made by President Donald Trump at the lighting of the national Christmas tree, Rev. Franklin Graham said no president in his lifetime had taken such a "strong, outspoken stand for the Christian faith" than President Trump and that he needs our prayers.

In a Dec. 1 post on Facebook, the day the tree was lit, Rev. Graham said, "Never in my lifetime have we had a president willing to take a strong, outspoken stand for the Christian faith like President Donald J. Trump has."

"Whether you are Protestant, evangelical, Orthodox, Catholic -- all Christians need to get behind him with our prayers," said Graham.

At the lighting event on Dec. 1, President Trump, in part said, "For Christians this is a holy season, the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The Christmas story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all - the gift of God's love for all of humanity.

"Whatever our beliefs we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of this incredible life forever changed the course of human history. There's hardly an aspect of our lives today that His life has not touched - art, music, culture, law and our respect for the sacred dignity of every person, everywhere in the world.

"... At Christmas we are reminded more than ever that the family is the bedrock of American life.

"And so this Christmas we ask for God's blessings for our family, for our nation. And we pray that our country will be a place where every child knows a home filled with love, a community rich with hope, and a nation blessed with faith."
