First it was Duck Dynasty‘s Willie Robertson. Now, it’s evangelist Franklin Graham. Both men are applauding a Christian governor who may or may not run for president: Bobby Jindal. And Graham is calling on Christians to make intercession for him.
“I appreciate strong leaders like Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal who are defending religious freedoms in our nation. Unlike some other governors who have waffled on their positions and retreated, he says no matter how tough the opposition he will fight for passage of the Marriage and Conscience Act in this legislative session,” Graham wrote on his Facebook page.
“In this The New York Times article Jindal says ‘We should ensure that musicians, caterers, photographers and others should be immune from government coercion on deeply held religious convictions.’ He says, ‘As the fight for religious liberty moves to Louisiana, I have a clear message for any corporation that contemplates bullying our state: Save your breath.’ Pray for Governor Jindal and post your encouragement to him in the comments below—tell him you support what he is doing!”
Although Graham stopped short of a presidential endorsement, Robertson came out in full support of Jindal as the next Commander-in-Chief just weeks ago.
“If he chooses to go on, I know the values he has … ,” Robertson said. “He’s got the values, he’s got the intelligence to do it. I’d love to see him run.”
