Franklin Graham continues his tour across the United States to urge Christians to get out and vote and to put pro-life principles as their first priority.

At a stop in Michigan this week, Graham spoke to thousands of pro-life voters and urged them to consider the future of the US Supreme Court has they decide who to vote for this November. The result of the presidential election has tremendous consequences for the fate of abortion as the Supreme Court can easily decide to keep abortion legal for another four decades.

Here is more from Franklin Graham on what Christian voters out to keep in mind and his commentary on abortion itself:

He said the decisions made by the high court could affect the nation “for the next 50 years or longer.”

“Beware, because the next president isn’t going to nominate one [U.S. Supreme Court justice]. It could be three, four, possibly five. And that would change the courts of our nation for the next 50 years or longer,” Graham said.

Without endorsing any presidential candidate, Graham expressed his opposition against abortion, progressives and same-sex marriage.

“Just because it’s the law of the land doesn’t mean it’s right,” he said.

He emphasized the country’s need for a “Christian revolution.” While the country was busy guarding against communism, secularism has crept into the government, that’s why more Christians need to run for office at every level, he said.

“Over the last 40 years, secularism slowly infiltrated Washington. And then it got into our capitals and statehouses. It got into our municipalities. It’s gotten into every area of our schools and universities,” Graham explained, adding that secularism and communism are both “godless.”

“You vote,” he said. “You may have to hold your nose. You might want to do that, but go vote.”

Speaking hope before those gathered at the prayer rally, Graham said it’s not too late for the country.

“Many people say it is too late for America,” he said. “No, it’s not. Not when the church comes and the church begins to pray, it’s not too late.”
