Rev. Franklin Graham Tells CNN Anchor "Trust me Girl - You Don't Want to Live" where Islamic Law is Dominant - Video 12/10/09
Here is video of Rev. Franklin Graham talking to CNN's Campbell Brown about the War in Afghanistan and President Obama's speech in accepting the Nobel Peace Prize.
He was also asked about Islam. Franklin Graham said "true Islam cannot be practiced in this country (America). You cannot beat your wife, you cannot murder your children if you think they commit adultery, as they do in these other countries." He pointed to Saudi Arabia as an example of a whole nation devoted to Islam that lives this way. Graham said wherever Islamic Sharia Law is practiced, this is how people are treated.
Campbell Brown was disbelieving. Graham told her:
"Where Sharia Law is the law of the land, Campbell - trust me girl - you don't want to live there."Graham said many Muslims living under the oppressive Sharia Law want to get out of Islam, but they cannot. He pointed out he has worked in Muslim countries for 50 years, and has many Islamic friends. Graham said there are millions of wonderful Muslim people, but where Islam is dominant, he finds it to be a very "violent religion." Graham said more than 2 million Christians have been killed in Southern Sudan by the Muslim majority there.
