Billy Graham’s Son: Obama Officials Are ‘Anti-Christ’, ‘Hostile Toward Christians’


Reverend Franklin Graham, the son of iconic Presidential adviser Billy Graham, is going on the offensive against the Obama White House, saying some in the administration are hostile towards Christianity and even dubbed them “anti-Christ.”

In an interview with Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, Graham asserted that there are people working in Obama’s White House who are “trying to completely secularize our military” and are “hostile to Christians”. Graham even said that they are “anti-Christ in what they say and in what they do.”

Perkins turned to Graham, asking “I would have to believe you’re also tracking, in fact I know you’re tracking because you were a part of it – when you were scheduled to speak at the Pentagon a few years ago they disinvited you – are you concerned about this intense religious hostility that we see manifesting in our nation’s military?”

Graham replied “No question. And my son just got back from his seventh [military] tour this weekend. So, I love the military. There has been huge pressure on the chaplains in our military – and our chaplains have been a wonderful thing for the military. But there is a move to get rid of the chaplains in our country, and to completely secularize our military. Actually, they are hostile to Christians.”

Graham continued to accuse “some” in the Obama Administration of being anti-religion, saying “A lot of this is coming from this administration and is being pushed by people within the White House. And when I say White House, I’m not saying the president, because I’m not sure how much of this he’s aware of. But it’s people that work for him that have power, that are sitting in offices, and they are hostile to Christ. They are anti-Christ in what they say and in what they do. And they are pushing this agenda into the military. It’s scary.”

After being asked if America can get back to its principles, Graham said that our situation is just like when “Israel turned their backs on God.” “There was usually some type of calamity,” Graham said. “There was a famine, there was a persecution from their neighbors, nations would come in and overrun them and destroy them.”

“I don’t know what’s going to have to happen in this country,” Graham concluded, “but my prayer is that America will wake up before that [persecution] happens.”

    If “secularizing the militry” means army chaplains can’t tote swimming pools to Iraq and then only offer them to soldiers willing to be baptized – I’m all for it.

    The crazy religious conservatives have bent over backward to make our military a place unfrlendly to people who don’t believe as they do – to the point where the Air Force Academy started classes with an evangelical service and that has to stop.

            He gives specific instructions on when you are commanded -by him- to forgive, to love. This command is for a specific set of circumstances only. He also tells when to kick the dust from our heels…. When to walk away, turn your back -withdraw love- from another person.

      Nice how you think its okay to steal peace from soldiers who may die. The peace I speak of is a relationship with God. Baptism is a symbol of an inward commitment to Jesus Christ. So, You wont at least steal their salvation when they confess it! Sad and pathetic how evil some of you have become…

      • Bridget47


        Forcing baptism for the price of a bath is not a true conversion and would only be considered so by a petty little person who doesn’t truly believe in God’s power but only their own.

        Forcing AMERICANS to follow any religious practice when they are in their field and risking their life for this country is despicable and gives all Christians a bad name.

      no one FORCES anyone to do any of that. But some people, when they get in turmoil, want to cleanse themselves. Why ,just because YOU don’t believe, would you want to keep them from it? You are the intolerant one.

      • Bridget47


        Look it up. One of the chaplains brought a swimming pool to Iraq (this is the Bush years) and said it was for baptisms only. So he used US Army water (which was precious in the desert) and denied a swimming pool to kids who were fighting.

        That’s not baptism for comfort – that’s forced religion.

        • http://batman-news.com gamalh

          Forced religion is MAKING you be baptized, there is no sense in that,you can’t MAKE someone be a christian, anyone. With

            You’re defending that?

          • http://batman-news.com gamalh

            I don’t need gimmicks, I do what the bible says, and in it it says to hear, repent and be baptized and then you shall receive the gift of the holy ghost. That is not a gimmick, that is what the bible says.

          • Bridget47

            No, that is not a gimmick.

            Taking a swimming pool to a war zone and telling kids they can only use it if they’re baptized is a gimmick.

            And that’s what I asked you if you were defending.

          • http://batman-news.com gamalh

            No I’m not defending that, there would be nothing wrong with letting the children play in it when they were not using it.

  • tom riddle

    Too funny.

  • gahh

    I know of nobody in the Obama Administration, that has said against Christianity, or the Bible.
    If Graham was disinvited to speak to the military, it’s probably because of his connections to the Tea Party. The Tea Party has caused terrible problems for this country. They don’t believe our Represenatives should work together for the purpose of bringing this country together. Their belief is “Our way, or no way”, Ted Cruz proved that. This also sounds like a good way for Graham to bring in more money for his church. Many people will give their last dollar to churches, to prove Obama wrong on churches. Problem is, the only person speaking against the church, is Graham. Plus we all know GW Bush is the real antichrist, with his killing of hundreds of thousands of innocent people, and the selling out of this country to the wealthy, for his Lie-bary.

  • Dave F

    I hate these Faux religious zealots like Graham junior. as per usual with these Tea Party associated idiots, there is absolutely no proof of his allegations. just a money grab from his church the donors. probably meant to invite his father, and when they accidentally found out it was his son they dis- invited!

    What the hell do these fanatics know about Christianity? Freedom-hating, truth-hating, narrow minded, militarized, force-fed–the one and only true, holy, antiseptically clean religion and don’t you forget it! That’s their version of Christianity. Religion is the blight, the curse, the stain, the bleeding, seeping, running sore of human society. Religion is what made the Dark Ages dark and these people are determined to bring those ages back. A history of wars, holocausts, terrorism, inquisition–religion is the excuse for intolerance.

    • james

      Religion is religion a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is not a religion. PS…atheist and communist have done such a great job of evil as well…Lets see Russia Lenin, Stalin, then Pol Pot and the killing fields, then of course Cuba, and S. America Marxist uprisings, and dont forget China and the anti God communist….Oh and Italy under Mussolini he was an avowed socialist, who hated God and religion. The state became religion and the entire Nazi platform was socialist. Further, the same is true of Hitler. Hitler wanted to take Germany back to pre Christian Paganism. Also, he had a court Occultist…It was evangelicals who were murdered by Hitler like Dietrich Bonhoeffer that helped to eventually bring him down. Further, many of the people murdered by Hitler were evangelical Christians and many of the Jewish people also believed in Jesus Christ. In fact one was a catholic nun. .The point of this diatribe Obama loves socialism and I believe hates God especially the real God of the Bible. PS the real problem are those who sleep and want to blame all the world’s problems on religion. When in fact 42 million were murdered during the 20 Century in the name of godlessness! This is fact! Today N. Korea continues the death toll with its atheist regime and other nations such as China continue to persecute Christians….I honestly pray you find peace in a relationship with Jesus Christ. He is the only way out of your sin and distress.

      • Christina

        You are definitely wrong that president Obama hates God . As it is expressed by you as a personal opinion i know it not to be true . I find it funny how people can accuse him of loving socialism when he just wants to keep the system in place for others of low and middle class incomes to be able to rise above their circumstances through education , social safety nets were not his idea but they are there to help those in need on a temporary basis and he does seek to keep those in place . What I’d like to know is where is the spirit of Christianity in praying for this president instead of condemning him ? By his own words he has quoted Christian belief that he is his brothers keeper . That was a very big reason for the affordable care act . Christ himself believed in helping the poor and loving your brother as you love yourself . I believe he has implemented that as much as he could under the us constitution because he shows no bias to any religion as per his oath of office . I don’t agree with gay marriage but I also don’t agree with discriminating against someone because of who they sleep with. It is Gods right to judge not ours. Thankfully we also have him as Christ to forgive our sins . Those of us who know him do have a responsibility to forgive and pray for those we don’t agree with . As long as the person is competent at their job why is who they sleep with anybody’s business ? This of course is subject up religious organizations having the right and freedom to their beliefs. Secular businesses already have anti discrimination laws to follow. As Christians it is our duty to remember the first amendment and the establishment clause before we get too self righteous on others . God loves us all and wants us repent of our sins but also to remember that people of all different religions on this earth are his children too .

        Why did Hitler, Mussolini, Franco, Salazar of Portugal and members of most of the Waffen SS have Concordats or cozy relationships with the Vatican? It is due to Mussolini’s agreements with the Vatican that we can’t demand and get removed to secular courts of justice the child/youth sex predators hiding in luxury in Vatican City today. Come again about ” leftists and tyranny?”.

        In the United States, Fascism is coming hard and heavy wrapped up in cries of we need ‘religious freedom’ or “we can’t practice our religious rights because the government is trying to force us to do or support things we don’t believe in”- all of these acts are the goals of those who want to overthrow our secular government and establish a theocracy.

      Religion IS the Blight but I DO SEE a few differences Between Islam and Christianity…..first, they both share exactly the same LAWS, the same books written by the same MEN……of course they are both “Of Abraham”.

      But the differences? Islamic Organizations Kill Millions of innocent people by Bombs planted in People and in the dirt at the road side, Rising Up Out of the Ground! Christians Kill Millions of Innocent people with High tech weapons that cost Billions, denying their own people of food while dropping from Billion dollar Aircraft……..BOTH In the name of the SAME GOD!……the only difference is the delivery method and I am afraid to say that the Islamists do it a LOT cheaper!

You sir sound scary and I am not sure what principles you are following, but they are not that of Christianity or Jesus Christ. Take those Republican out if your ear. Its you who seems to hate God and the religion your father preached for over 60 years. Fix your soul Franklin as your father is turning over in his grave over your nonsense. And then come back to the God of Abraham’s people who sir are the very Christians your father spoke to for my lifetime until he died.

    The God I worship Loves Everyone, so please stop YOUR lies. The Bible talks about the Antichrist and Charleston’s in his word. Please take the label you are practicing and leave the rest who know the truth alone. You as a son of a great disciple of God should be ashamed if yourself! I personally do nit appreciate the lies you are trying to shove down my throat ib a blog; yoy are supposed to be bringing other lost souls to Christ, NOT turn them away from religion and God. I believe sin of Billy Graham, that you are blaspheming and that is a sin.

    Such jerks, says “antichrist” does he mean ungodly, infidels, or does he mean the antichrist as in satan. He doesn’t specify. So there will me many takes on what he has said, which amounts to nothing except religious “authority” name calling, dirupting social relations like that is sociopathic, he offers no substance to back up his claim, calling himself a “christian” while “loving the military” and comitying False Witness. I say the mans own statements smack heavily of Sociopathy. I would bet money the “minister” is nothing more than a GOP sociopath who should not be allowed on a pulpit.
