Following his controversial appearance on MSNBC, Rev. Franklin Graham spoke to CNN’s Kyra Phillips on Wednesday to blame MSNBC's 'Morning Joe' for bringing up President Obama's religion, which he questioned.

Rev. Graham told CNN: "MSNBC invited me to come on the program not to talk about the president’s faith. I went on to talk about the Newsweek article about the murder and killing of Christians around the world, and that is what is bothering me, is what Muslims are doing to Christians around the world. I wanted to talk about the Newsweek article."

About Obama’s religious beliefs, Rev. Graham said: "The president has said that he is a Christian, just leave it at that…only God knows the heart of all of these candidates."

However, Rev. Graham previously expressed that he believed GOP presidential candidates Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum were Christians.
