CHARLOTTE, N.C. - The Rev. Billy Graham's spokesman says the evangelist is advising Christians how to vote, but not who they should vote for in this year's election.
The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has taken out newspaper ads in which he urges Americans to vote for candidates who will "support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and woman, protect the sanctity of life, and defend our religious freedoms."
Graham's spokesman, Larry Ross, notes that the ads don't endorse candidates, but say the Bible speaks clearly on those issues and the need to support Israel and that Christians should vote accordingly.
In one of the ads, titled "Legacy," Graham says, "I realize this election could be my last." He'll be 94 on November 7, the day after the election.
He urges Americans to join him in praying "that we will turn our hearts back toward God."
