Thank God for men of courage like Franklin Graham, who refused to back down from his commitment to his faith and his statement that Islam is a demonic and evil religion. Islam is just that, and I agree wholeheartedly with Rev. Graham. Jeers to the spineless, gutless decision makers at the Pentagon whose piece-of-string backbone led them to cave in to pressures from the Council on American Islamic Relations that Graham been dis-invited as the keynote speaker at the National Day of Prayer. Sadly this is one more example of the cowardice of the current administration and on this society as a whole. Below is an action alert issued recently from American Family Association.

Rev. Franklin Graham was bounced from the opportunity to pray at the Pentagon on the National Day of Prayer (May 6) because he once called Islam “an evil and wicked” religion, and because he wants Muslims to know that Jesus Christ died for their sins. He refused to back down, (video here) even in the face of this blatant anti-Christian discrimination, saying that Muslims are in fact “enslaved” by their religion.
The military dumped Rev. Graham because, according to spokesman Col. Tom Collins, “We’re an all-inclusive military.” Well, you’ll have to excuse Rev. Graham for not feeling particularly included at this point. Apparently the inclusiveness of the military does not extend to those who speak the truth about Islam.
It apparently counts for nothing that Graham’s charitable organization, Samaritan’s Purse, has delivered compassionate care in the name of Jesus to millions of Muslim children around the world for decades.
