Graham, the son of renowned evangelical pastor Billy Graham, provided a statement of penitence after being criticized by the NAACP and a group of black religious leaders for his uncertainty in Obama’s faith.
“I regret any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president, Mr. Obama,” he said. “I apologize to him and to any I have offended for not better articulating my reason for not supporting him in this election — for his faith has nothing to do with my consideration of him as a candidate.”
