Franklin Graham to Brody File on Obama’s Re-Election: Christians Should Be 'Upset at Themselves'

Rev. Franklin Graham tells The Brody File that one of the lessons of President Obama’s re-election is that more Christians in this country need to vote and he tells me that, “if Christians are upset, they need to be upset at themselves.”

Despite the fact that more Christians went to the polls in this election than in 2008, the reality is tens of millions just don’t even bother with voting.

Rev. Graham stopped by to talk to The Brody File earlier this week. You can watch more of the interview on this week’s Brody File show, airing Friday on the ABC Family Channel at 9:30 a.m. Video below and partial transcription.

David Brody: What is your message to folks who are wondering what just happened, and it looks like they feel a semi hit them?

Rev. Franklin Graham: We know that from of the statistics that I’ve heard that the majority of Christians in this country just did not vote for whatever reason. The vast majority of evangelicals did not go to the polls.

Graham: God is in control, and if Christians are upset, they need to be upset at themselves. We need to do a better job of getting our people - the Church - to vote. Now, I’m not trying to tell you how to vote, you can vote, but vote, my goodness, and vote for candidates that stand for Biblical values.
