Franklin Graham: ‘Draw Muhammad’ event went too far

My comments in Red: I am not a fan of Franklin Graham, nor have I ever been a fan of his father, Billy Graham (See Dr. Cathy Burn’s book, BILLY GRAHAM AND HIS FRIENDS: A HIDDEN AGENDA?) As for Franklin, he very much sounds like an appeaser in this article, although he does state on his Facebook page that Islam does not worship the same God Christians worship.  Graham’s close alliance and promotion of Rick Warren’s books, also gives great reason to wonder about Graham’s knowledge of the Bible.

Franklin Graham, one of the world’s best-known Christian evangelists and the head of the nonprofit Samaritan’s Purse, said in a Wednesday morning Fox & Friends interview the “folks in Garland were wrong” to hold their “Draw Muhammad” event. ”

As a Christian, I don’t like it when people mock my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” he said. “What this event was doing in Texas was mocking Islam. I disagree with [them].” Graham said today’s society is lacking in civility and the “folks in Garland were wrong” to further that tone. “I think we need to show respect and civility,” he said.

We need to respect one another … and those that believe differently [from my faith], I’m not going to mock them.”

Graham then condemned the radicalized element of Islam for attacking those outside their faith, and doubled down on remarks made earlier – reported by WND – that the United States should put a hold on allowing anyone into this country who’s coming from a nation with known terrorist cells.

“It’s wrong to prefer violence, period,” he said. “The Muslims have no right to go around shooting people because someone mocks them. … We should not be allowing immigration into this country from any countries that have active terrorist cells.”

Just Tuesday, Graham weighed in on the Texas shootings with a Facebook post saying the god of Islam is not the “God of the Bible,” or of Christianity.

“One of the Muslim gunmen in Garland, Texas, said he had come there to die, believing that this pleases his god and he would go to heaven,” Graham wrote. “The god of Islam and the God of the Bible are not the same.” One key difference? “The god of Islam wants you to die for him,” he said.

“The God of the Bible sent His Son to die for us.” Graham then wrote: “Jesus said, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ Only if we put our faith and trust in Him, can we spend eternity in Heaven. I wish all Muslims could know the truth. They can find what their hearts are searching for only through Jesus Christ.” Graham has said in previous interviews he wanted Muslims to hear the new that “God loves them and he will accept them through faith and through his son, Jesus Christ,” Christianity Today reported.

On Wednesday on Fox & Friends, Graham called for more prayer for the nation, and for the nation’s leaders. “We need to pray for this country,” he said, “that it turns back to the God of our fathers. We need God today in this country and we need His help. And we need to love one another … love them and respect them.”

  1. You got to wonder what Christians in this country are all about.
    Franklin must be a left leaning Conservative, a door stop. pretty much a Right of center Democrat. listen to their insane crap on c-span about woman’s health vs right to life, and how it’s up to America to apply the rights of citizenship to jihadists and illegal immigrants but deny life to prenatal kids.
    The Pope is also wandering off the reservation on a variety of topics which are clearly beyond his realm, and the catholic church is involved with vaccination mandates and common core, and relocating illegals.

  2. Franklin Graham is also on the wrong side of the bible when it comes
    to undefined gun background checks..

    The Pope outted himself as soon as he said their are other ways to god other than through Jesus Christ..

  3. So, Franklin said we should show respect to a political religion with a false god enen though the Muslims have no respect for our Christian God? We shold show respect to a people who refuse to assimilate into this country nor follow its laws, and are forcing Sharia law onto us? To respect a people who could turn savage at any moment should they become offended by our using our right to free speech? What it boils down to, is that they want to take dominance over us.
