Billy Graham: Ban Gay Marriage in N.C.

Evangelist Billy Graham on Wednesday called for North Carolina voters to support a state constitutional amendment that would ban gay marriage, and will run a full-page ad in 14 North Carolina newspapers throughout the weekend. The public comments are rare from the 93-year-old pastor, and while Graham has often preached on sexual purity, he has never touched the issue of same-sex marriage. North Carolinans will go to the polls next week to vote on adding an amendment to the state Constitution banning gay marriage, although gay marriage is already illegal in the state.
