Friday afternoon, evangelist Franklin Graham's public rebuking of politicians continued when he called out Mitt Romney and the Republican Party establishment for the attacks on GOP front-runner Donald Trump.
"I'm 63 years old, and I've never seen anything like this," he said on Facebook. "This Republican presidential campaign has not only sunk to new lows, but the Republican establishment seems to be desperate to pick their own candidate."
Graham acknowledged there are "some good candidates running," but stuck with his decision not to endorse any one in particular. Instead, he said he would continue to call for "radical change" in the only way he knows it can come.
"I'm fed up with both the Republican and the Democratic parties. Both are corrupt—clearly broken—and need to be overhauled. They need radical change," he wrote. "Ultimately, the only way this nation can be turned around is for us to acknowledge God and call on His Name. God tells us in His Word, 'If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land' (2 Chronicles 7:14)."
