The Buzz: 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."
The Response: "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"
And It Gets Worse: 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."
Graham should probably listen to himself from outside his tiny little comfort zone. He sounds more and more like the religious extremists and less and less like the concerned and loving man who follows New Testament teachings.
At this rate, he and Rev. Phelps will be indistinguishable. And to think I have to share a state with the man.
