Franklin Graham says "Take a Moral Stand" To Catholic Leaders

Franklin Graham is encouraging Catholic leaders to "take a moral stand" in light of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's (D) decision to sign a new law that removes restrictions on late-term abortions and allows babies to be aborted up until the moment of birth. 

Cuomo has stated that he is Catholic but alot of leaders have critized him for signing this abortion law. Some went as far to call it excommunication from the faith.

But not everyone had the same opinion. Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the archbishop of New York, told "Fox & Friends" Monday morning that Gov. Cuomo isn't going to be moved by excommunication, "so what's the use?" 

Evangelist Franklin Graham shared in his Facebook post his thoughts on the matter: "I call on my friend Cardinal Dolan to take a moral stand. Whether it moves the governor's calloused heart or not, it will have a great impact on not only the church in New York, but on the church worldwide. My question would be—if the church loses their moral voice, then what's the use? It's about standing for right over wrong, good over evil," 

Yet, these comments doesn't seem to bother Cuomo and says: "The Catholic Church does not believe in a woman's right to choose. Yes, I understand their religious view. I understand their religious view when it comes to marriage equality. But, I'm not here to legislate religion. I happen to be Catholic, but you're not a Catholic governor or a Jewish governor or a Muslim governor. You're just governor," he added.
