Heads the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, founded by his father, evangelist Billy Graham.

Graham has also denounced prosecution of Sudanese President Omar al-Bashir for that nation's genocide, stated that the earthquake and tsunami that struck Japan in 2011 might signal the second coming and Armageddon, and complimented Russian President Vladimir Putin on that country's effective illegalization of gayness.
