Franklin Graham Weighs in on Mike Pence's "Billy Graham Rule": "No One is Immune" to Satan's Attacks on Marriage

"Satan is perpetually trying to destroy homes and marriages-we have to be alert and on guard. You protect and guard the things you cherish. Marriage should be one of those things." – Franklin Graham

(Washington, DC) — [The Gospel Herald] Franklin Graham has praised Vice President Mike Pence for following the "Billy Graham Rule" -  refusing to dine with a woman without his wife present - warned that "no one is immune" to satan's attacks on marriage.

In a recent Facebook post, Graham revealed that like Pence, he, too, adheres to the rule named after his 98-year-old father.

"I'm thankful we have a Vice President who respects and protects his marriage!" the leader of Samaritan's Purse wrote. "My parents had rules, as my wife Jane and I have, and as the Pences have."

As reported, while doing a profile of Indiana’s former First Lady, a Washington Post reporter, Ashley Parker, cited a 2002 interview with Pence in The Hill in 2002. In it, he said he never ate alone with a woman other than his wife, Karen. Pence, a devout Catholic, also said he wouldn't attend an event where alcohol would be served without her by his side.

The elder Graham followed a similar rule of not traveling, meeting or eating with another woman alone. Thus, the practice is often dubbed "The Billy Graham Rule" and is common among many evangelicals today, including Pastor Rick Warren, Fox News pundit Erick Erickson, and more.

Continuing his Facebook post, Franklin Graham said Pence has been unfairly derided for his stance.

"Satan is perpetually trying to destroy homes and marriages-we have to be alert and on guard," he said "Proactively setting boundaries for protection of your marriage is important to avoid satan's traps. No one is immune or beyond failure."
