The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy, I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
I read an article that can be found at http://www.cnsnews.com/blog/michael-w-chapman/franklin-graham-americas-culture-death-stems-sinful-godless-worldview-rejects
In this article Franklin Graham makes a case for America being a ‘culture of death that stems from a sinless, Godless woldview that rejects Christ’. Quoting from the article:
In addition to the push for euthanasia — the deliberate murder of the terminally sick, handicapped, elderly, or mentally ill – Reverend Graham noted that the social and entertainment culture seems fixated on death and gore.
Football used to be the dominant choice on television on Sunday evenings in the fall and winter but today, for example, 17 million people skipped the football game to watch the season premiere of The Walking Dead, a series about zombies (the walking dead) hunting and eating people.

Unfortunately, this description could fit Obama. He is setting himself above God, and pushing for Americans to accept homosexuality, and other ungodly things. God has called the act of homosexuality an abomination in Leviticus 18:22. It is something he hates.
