TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The son of the Rev. Billy Graham is urging Christians in Kansas to vote for other Christians who resist secularism.

The Rev. Franklin Graham on Thursday addressed thousands of people waving miniature American flags outside the Kansas Statehouse.

He was greeted with loud applause when he said he was running a campaign to put God back into the political discussion.

Graham’s Topeka stop was the 19th in his 50-State Decision America Tour. His message is that the nation’s forefathers opposed “state-controlled religion” but never intended for God to be completely removed from government.

Graham says he disagrees with a Charlotte, North Carolina, city ordinance that allowed transgender people to enter the bathroom of the gender with which they identify.

The state’s legislature overturned the ordinance in late March.
