Key Quotes from Franklin Graham

“I think there’s always a need to be concerned [about nationalism]. Whether it’s a problem some think it is, I don’t know. But I think there’s always a problem if people lose sight, especially if Christians lose sight, of what our purpose in life is.”

“I hope all of us that live in this country have patriotism, but I do not worship my government. I worship God and his son, Jesus Christ.”

“Our country is not a Christian country, never has been. We have some Christian principles, but we’re not a Christian country.”
