By: Stephen Holmes Franklin Graham has backed Donald Trump's call to ban Muslims from entering the U.S. Does Graham know that the faith of his father virtually began with a plea for religious freedom for Muslims?
Evangelist Franklin Graham blessed a Donald Trump presidential bid on Easter but has yet to criticize Trump for his F-bomb outburst a few days later. He further questioned Obama's faith but is silent about Trump's.
After talking about "God's love" and "the sacrifice of Jesus Christ" on a nationally televised news program on Easter Sunday, Franklin Graham argued that President Obama may not have been born in the United States.
One persistent falsehood is that Islam is by definition a violent religion. Call it the Franklin Graham Falsehood. He also claimed that he's "not heard one Islamic leader" condemn 9/11, but he clearly hasn't done his research.
The U.S. Army made the right decision to prohibit Franklin Graham from speaking at a prayer event in May at the Pentagon. The prohibition resulted from Graham's continuous hostile and insulting statements about Islam.
Evangelist Franklin Graham attacked Islam as "a very violent religion" and argued that Americans could not practice "true Islam," but Baptist leaders promoting dialogue with Muslims criticized his remarks.
