President Barack Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, who are "progressives," i.e., "liberals," are pushing an amoral agenda on America, said Rev. Franklin Graham, who added that while this country was founded on "biblical laws and principles," today America "has turned its back on God" and when a nation does this, the "end is near."

"One of the greatest threats to America is the progressives (a new name for liberals) led by President Obama and his Attorney General Eric Holder who are trying to impose a new morality -- which is no morality at all -- jamming it down the throats of the American people," said Rev. Graham in a Mar. 23 post on Facebook.

"America has been blessed by God more than any nation on the face of the earth," he said. "When our country was birthed, its foundations and laws, were based on biblical laws and principles."

He continued, "We used to be 'one nation under God,' now we're a nation that has turned it back on God."

"History shows that when nations do this, their end is near," said Rev. Graham.
