Leading evangelist Franklin Graham has defended “Duck Dynasty” patriarch Phil Robertson from liberal backlash after the latter issued an invocation at the April 9 NASCAR race and called on God to put a “Jesus man in the White House.”During his pre-race prayer at Texas Motor Speedway’s Duck Commander 500, the 69-year-old reality TV star asked the Lord to help Americans repent in the name of Jesus and also politicized his prayer by asking God to put a Christian in the White House.”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. Help us father to get back to that,” Robertson said. “I pray Father that we put a Jesus man in the White House. Help us do that and help us all to repent to do what’s right to love you more and to love each other. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
