Franklin Graham: Obama ‘Giving Islam A Pass’~ Video Interview

I have to commend Rev. Graham for his willingness to speak the truth, and his unwillingness to back down to those that oppose him. I have seen him attacked in comment sections across the Internet. What I have not seen, is anyone that could refute his comments about Islam. We need more like you Reverend.

Franklin Graham: Obama ‘Giving Islam A Pass,’ Persecution For Believing In Jesus Christ ‘Coming’

Rev. Franklin Graham, the evangelical minister who was disinvited from a Pentagon prayer service after concerns arose regarding his past offensive comments about Islam, is now accusing President Obama of “giving Islam a pass.”

In an interview with Newsmax Television, Graham was asked if he though there was a “pattern of hostility to traditional Christianity by the Obama administration.”

“I don’t know if it’s exactly from President Obama,” Graham responded, “but I’m certain that some of the men around him are very much opposed to what we stand for and what we believe.”

Graham continued, “It seems as though Muslims are getting a pass”

Rev. Graham was then asked by the host about mounting “secular oppression” in the United States.

“No question, it’s coming,” Graham says. “I think when you preach that Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the light, I think we’re going to see, one day, people will say this is hate speech.”

The reverend described his removal from the Pentagon prayer service program as “a slap at all Evangelical Christian.”

Graham also expanded on his viewpoint of Islam:

“I don’t believe Muhammad can lead anybody to God,” Graham said. “I love Muslim people and I care for them very much and I want Muslims everywhere to know what I know — that Jesus Christ died for their sins.”

Graham is now scheduled to take part in the congressional National Day of Prayer event on Capitol Hill on May 6.

    Its good to see that Rev. Graham is willing to pick up the fight on this issue. But he needs to be very cautious on how he presents his message least he leave himself open to his opponents.

      There is no 'acceptable' way to 'present his message.' If you go after Islam, you will have many enemies. There is no way to shelter yourself from attack.
      We'll see how this plays out, though. Obama already had a meeting with him and his Dad to try and smooth things over. I am glad Franklin Graham is not shutting up as a result.

      You're so right. I pray that Rev. Graham's security people are on high alert. We all know what these disgusting neanderthals are capable of. Now that Dr. Graham has had the courage to break the ice, it's time for the clergy of all other religions to step up to the plate.

        I suspect most are ignorant of hislam. Revd. Graham appears to have done his research. Before they speak, they'll need to study it in some detail. The last thing they can afford to do is make a claim about it they can't back up with the facts. Once they lose their credibility, the MSM and leftists will go for the jugular. And then there's CAIR.

        Yes, that's the important thing. He has to remain a thorn in their side. But what he says has to be reasoned and cautious. And truthful (there's plenty of fodder in hislam he can use). Arselifters and their enablers, the leftist dhimmis, will go after him. He just has to ensure they don't have a leg to stand on.

    Preach, Pastor Graham!
    Went to one of his Dad's football stadium crusades when I was a young teenager. Great men, and not ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
    Heard a former Moslem saying (on a youtube) yesterday that Mohammad, in his last dying words, cursed Jews and Christians. He hated them, and Moslems still do (Isn't Mohammad higher than God, after all?). Reminder: Christian Pastors will be the last stand against Islam, and the most hated, the most attacked, but the most honored by God. Why are they hiding?
    OK, they are afraid of Islam, afraid of their people, their reputation, but where is their fear for our future and their fear of God?

      His father came out to Australia some time back in the 70s or 80s. It was held at a huge open air venue. He could obviously draw a huge crowd even though he was unheard of here.

      Clearly, Mahound had some sort of personality disorder. An article on Islam Watch claims he was a malignant narcissist. http://www.islam-watch.org/

    Back in the 7th Century there were a lot of variant versions of Christianity. This because there were so few copies of the Bible in circulation. Contemporaries of Muhammad initially thought Islam was just another Christian aberration. It wasn't until Muhammad ordered that all other religions be purged from the Arabian Peninsula that the enmity of Islam became clear. Today, Muslim apologists are using some of the old failed arguments of the 7th Century to convince the uninformed that Islam is just another branch of the Judeo-Christian faith. Wrong. Deadly wrong.

    • May 5, 2010 at 3:29 am

      Very. Its also interesting to note that the Bible wasn't translated to local languages until quite a lot later. It used to be in Latin (and still was for a long time after the Reformation).

      Arselifters, of course, will tell you that the koran only makes sense in arabpig and that translations are wrong if you question something.

      • May 5, 2010 at 4:13 am

        Then when you point out that you have read a translation from as Islamic scholar such as Yusuf Ali, they disappear from the conversation.

      • May 5, 2010 at 5:14 am

        The fact that the language is extremely repulsive to listen to for even such a small amount of time as 5-10 seconds is not directly inspiring to want to learn. To be honest, I would rather learn klingon than atabpig and would probably have as much use of any of them.

        • May 5, 2010 at 5:32 am

          Klingon is actually more useful. Although both sound like you're clearing your throat.

          • May 5, 2010 at 5:43 pm

            Yes, I know, Just in case I should ever convert to klingon.

          • May 6, 2010 at 6:23 am

            You can also converse with geeks in Klingon.

          • May 6, 2010 at 6:07 pm

            To be honest, I've been thinking of learning sindarin lately. I guess that too is a bit geekish although perhaps not as much as klingon lol.

    I am glad to see that Franklin Graham is taking a stand. It looks to me like maybe Franklin Graham has had his eyes opened since the disturbing "Christian charity bans Christmas themed children's gifts" article from Nov. 2006 here: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-415551/Ch

    • May 5, 2010 at 9:12 am

      … in case arselifters are offended sums it up. As if we not offended by arselifters and what they get up to.

  6. May 5, 2010 at 9:19 am

    We absolutely need more people willing to stand up. I had written

    Rev. Franklin Graham, the Obama administration and the "War on Christianity"

    yesterday to commend the Rev. for the same comments. Keep up the good work.

    Muhammadanism is what they used to call it.
    This is a RELIGION! We need to have the courage to DENOUNCE this EVIL thing. The politically correct have drilled it in to our heads that discrimination is the most horrible thing. Discrimination is necessary. We need to teach morality and ethics. Without discrimination we would put ourselves in danger and make ourselves sick. We have been taught by our parents to discriminate good food from bad, dangerous heights or not to walk down dark allies. Discrimination is what is used to make sound judgments. Yet, this too is a politically incorrect word. How does one go about making decisions? Well, the answer is —- NO ONE MAKING DECISIONS.
    Where there is a void, nature fills it.
    Our society has many voids. Muhammadanism fills many holes that are hallowed out by our current social experiment.

    Franklin Graham's Warning !

    Franklin's warning of coming persecution of Christians echoes what his mother Ruth and father Billy have clearly stated. Re Ruth, see search engines including Google for "Letter from Mrs. Billy Graham." To see what Billy has written, Google "Famous Rapture Watchers – Addendum."
    Since Franklin blamed the Obama administration for his own National Day of Prayer snub and persecution, and since he accused "Christian" Obama of "giving Islam a pass," readers can get some rare insights into Obama and his fellow travelers by Yahooing and Googling "Obama Supports Public Depravity," "Obama Avoids Bible Verses," "Separation of Raunch and State," and "David Letterman's Hate, Etc."
    To see some exceptional in-depth studies of coming persecution, see two unique books by media figure Joe Ortiz entitled "The End Times Passover" and "Why Christians Will Suffer 'Great Tribulation' " – both published in the US and UK by AuthorHouse.
