the US army is stupidly un-inviting evangelist franklin graham to speak at the pentagon’s national day of prayer service on may 6th because apparently the army brass (or someone higher up) doesn’t like that graham considers the ‘religion of peace’ - islam - violent.
here’s what franklin graham, whose organization ’samaritan’s purse’ has done incredible humanitarian work around the world including in muslim countries, said:
what did franklin graham say that wasn’t true? was it this?
“I want them to know that they don’t have to die in a car bomb, don’t have to die in some kind of holy war to be accepted by God.”
“I love the people of Islam but their religion, I do not agree with their religion at all. And if you look at what the religion does just to women, women alone, it is just horrid. And so yes, I speak out for women. I speak out for people that live under Islam, that are enslaved by Islam and I want them to know that they can be free.”
it is not more then a wee bit disturbing that a citizen - a minister of the gospel - does a much better job at identifying our enemy then the pc army brass mandated to defend this country? but what do we expect when we have a defense department that operates under the direction of an administration that appeases our enemies and shuns our allies.
btw, franklin graham regrets that the army brass at the pentagon is so stupid right now but he stands by his comments.
