Anti-Christian actions are occurring in America and much of it is “coming out of the entertainment industry” and some segments of the “news media,” said Rev. Franklin Graham, who added that “Christians are being attacked” and this is on the rise globally, along with increasing incidents of anti-Semitism.

Franklin Graham, who heads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, is the son of the world-renowned Christian preacher Billy Graham.

In an interview on Newsmax TV’s “America’s Forum” on Good Friday, April 18, Franklin Graham was asked, “Are we at a point now, that maybe is unparalleled in history, about the amount of anti-Christian behavior and activity and anti-Semitism rising around the globe?”

Rev. Graham said, “We do see it rising around the globe – no question about it – and it’s frightening. We see the anti-Christian position in this country. We see so much of it coming out of the entertainment industry, especially in certain segments of the news media. Christians are being attacked.”

“It’s just part of it, and we see it now in Europe the anti-Semitism, no question,” said Rev. Graham.  “It’s there, and we’re living in a world that is changing and it is frightening to see how quickly the world is changing. I think we’re going to see real persecution of Christians and Jews in the years to come.”

When asked about what Christians should do when faced with anti-Christian attacks, Rev. Graham said he “would encourage Christians not to back down, to stand firm, to share your faith, to stand for your faith – not to be afraid of the secularists who will scoff at you.”

“You know, we live in a world where we want to be politically correct, we live in a world where people want to be accepted,” he said.  “And standing for Jesus Christ, you’re not going to be accepted in some circles. You just have to be willing to accept that, and don’t be afraid.”

“I would encourage Christians to stand and be proud of your faith, and not to be shy,” said Rev. Graham.  “Tell others about what God has done for you, what Christ did when He died on the Cross and arose from the grave. Let people know that.”

The State Department’s International Religious Freedom Report for 2012 states that there is a “continued global increase in anti-Semitism,” and noted incidents particularly in Venezuela, Egypt, Iran, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary and France.

The State Department report also cited many examples of anti-Christian activities, particularly in China, North Korea, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Pakistan, Indonesia and India.

“In addition to anti-Semitism, intolerance by members of society towards those of other faiths besides Judaism was a growing problem, and all too often evolved into violence,” said the State Department.  “While Christians were a leading target of societal discrimination, abuse, and violence in some parts of the world, members of other religions, particularly Muslims, suffered as well.”
