    Evangelical preacher the Rev. Franklin Graham says America's enemies today are "godless secularism" and those who "call themselves progressives."

    Graham reported on his latest Decision America Tour prayer rally in Boston on Tuesday, which he said on Facebook was attended by over 3,000 people on the Capitol grounds. Graham said that he and the attendees prayed for God's forgiveness and for the healing of America, as he also encouraged Christians to run for office and vote in the coming elections.

    In an earlier post, he reflected that Boston is known as the "cradle of liberty" due to its historical connections to the The American Revolutionary War.

    "In 1775, Paul Revere's famed signal lanterns hung from the Old North Church steeple to warn that the enemy was coming. I'm not hanging lanterns, but I am going state to state warning the people of our nation about the enemy," Graham wrote.

    "The enemy is not the British today, but godless secularism and people who call themselves progressives who are undermining the morals and the God-given biblical foundation that our Founding Fathers gave this nation. These foundations are under attack, and the election coming up is so critical for America's future."

    He revealed that Boston is the 39th state capital he has visited in his Decision America Tour, with 11 more to go before the tour is completed. The evangelist urged Christians to pray and vote in "record numbers," which he said could make history again for the good of the nation.

    The Progressives are undermining the morals and God-given Biblical foundation that our Founding Fathers gave this nation. Does that include the slavery and the murder of the slaves and the Native Americans? Since when have slavery and genocide been lauded as moral and God-given?

    They were thieves and murderers. At last check, stealing and murder were not considered very moral.

    Wonder if he thinks not referring to Mormonism as a cult is progressive?
