(GOSPELHERALD) — Franklin Graham has voiced his support for Phil Robertson after the 'Duck Dynasty' star came under fire for asking for "a Jesus man in the White House" during the pre-race prayer for the Sprint Cup Series' Duck Commander 500 NASCAR Race at Texas Motor Speedway.
As earlier reported, Robertson gave the prayer at the event held earlier this month because the family company, Duck Commander, is the title sponsor of the race.
"Alright Texas, we got here via Bibles and guns. I'm fixin' to pray to the one who made that possible," he said. "Father, thank you for founding our nation. I pray, Father, that we don't forget who brought us. You. Our faith in the blood of Jesus and his resurrection."
