Rev. Franklin Graham Explains Why He's Not Part Of Any Political Party

Rev. Franklin Graham is leading the Decision America tour. On Wednesday, he spoke with Fox News about the state of American politics. He said, "I have no hope in the Republican Party. I have no hope in the Democratic Party. Or any political party. The only hope for this country is God, and we have taken God out of the political debate. We have taken him out of the public space. I want to put Him back in."

While speaking with "Fox & Friends," he talked about his rallies saying "We spend half the time in prayer, just people holding hands with the person next to them, and praying to God. Confessing the sins of our nation, confessing their own sins."

Graham also explained why he doesn't want to endorse a candidate or affiliate with a party. He shared, "I don't think I can stand and ask for people for pray and be affiliated with one of the parties. I don't want people to think, 'He's doing this for the Republicans' or this group or that group, it's not. It's for God."

Graham also tried to define the word evangelical by explaining, "I'm not sure it means what it used to mean. It used to mean a person who believed in the Scriptures, the Bible to be the word of God. But believed in telling others, evangelizing and telling others. But yet that word is I think misused a lot today and a lot of people call themselves that and I'm not sure what they are."
