Evangelist Billy Graham's son Rev. Franklin Graham often complains about the persecution of Christians in the U.S.
"We see the anti-Christian position in this country," Rev. Graham told Newsmax in April (video below). "We see so much of it coming out of the entertainment industry, especially in certain segments of the news media."
In March, Rev. Graham claimed that the Obama White House was hostile to Christians, noted RightWingWatch.org (audio below).
“They are hostile to Christians and a lot of this is coming from this administration and it is being pushed by people within the White House, and when I say White House I’m not saying the president because I’m not sure how much of this he’s aware of, but it’s people who work for him that have power that are sitting in offices and they are hostile to Christ, they are anti-Christ in what they say and what they do and they are pushing this agenda into the military and it’s scary,” said Rev. Graham.
However, Rev. Graham recently attacked the National Cathedral in Washington D.C. for allowing Muslims to hold a prayer service in the famous structure.
"It's sad to see a church open its doors to the worship of anything other than the One True God of the Bible who sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to earth to save us from our sins," Rev. Graham wrote on his Facebook page, reported Charisma News.
The National Cathedral website states:
Our calling as a Cathedral and as a congregation is to live our faith as deeply and devotedly as we can, and to be a house of prayer for all people. Services are open to the public, and we welcome you to worship in this holy space in the heart of the nation’s capital.
According to CNN, Rev. Graham called Islam "a very evil and wicked religion" in 2001 and in 2009 told CNN Host Campbell Brown (video below), "True Islam cannot be practiced in this country. You can't beat your wife. You cannot murder your children if you think they've committed adultery or something like that, which they do practice in these other countries."
Rev. Graham failed to mention the Bible also commands that adulterers and disobedient children be put to death.
