In a Fox News interview, Franklin Graham said he and his father are in agreement that America is in a political and economic “mess,” but the main problem is “we’re in a spiritual mess.”

He offered as an example a bill the Senate is preparing to pass that provides special job protections for homosexuals and transgendered people called the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, or ENDA.

Franklin Graham emphasized that the bill would require Christian organizations to hire people who “practice sexual sin” and who don’t “believe what we believe.”

He explained that “any type of sexual relations outside of the marriage relationship between a man and a woman is a sinful relationship.” He returned, however, to the essential point.

“We need God, and that is the issue,” Franklin Graham told the “Fox and Friends” hosts. “We are in a spiritual mess in this country, and this film tonight is really my father’s last call to this country, to come back to God and to put their faith and trust in Jesus Christ.”
