The Rev. Billy Graham announced his support for North Carolina’s discriminatory Amendment 1 on Wednesday, in what some characterized as an unusual endorsement. “Watching the moral decline of our country causes me great concern,” he said. “I believe the home and marriage is the foundation of our society and must be protected.” He added: “The Bible is clear — God’s definition of marriage is between a man and a woman. I want to urge my fellow North Carolinians to vote for the marriage amendment.” The measure, which goes before voters on May 8, would outlaw same-sex marriage, civil unions, and domestic partnerships in the state constitution.
