Franklin Graham Says Presidents Bush and Obama Told Americans Wrong: "Islam is Not a Peaceful Religion" - Video 5/4/10
UPDATE: I just noticed that CNN is saying the video is "no longer available." Don't know if this is temporary of if they have pulled it for good. If they have pulled it, it only serves to illustrate the bias going on here that Graham was talking about.
UPDATE 2: I found video of the interview at YouTube uploaded by MoxNews. It is actually a more extensive clip. I'm leaving the CNN clip that is "no longer available" as a reminder that it has disappeared/been pulled.
Here is video of Rev. Franklin Graham talking with CNN's Campbell Brown last night, where he said he does not believe he would have been disinvited from speaking at the National Day of Prayer observance at the Pentagon if "Bill Clinton or George Bush" were President.
Graham stopped short of saying he believes President Obama had anything to do with the decision, but said he believes there are those in Obama's Administration who advocated for the decision.
On Islam, Graham stood by his past remarks when he was asked by Campbell Brown if Islam is an "evil religion."
"Well, Campbell, if you take just the way they treat women, I have a real problem with Islam - I do. The way they treat women - it is horrid. It is not a peaceful religion that President Bush and President Obama tried to tell the American people it is - it is not that at all."
Franklin Graham later said "Islam is what it is" when Brown attempted to talk as if it is no different than Christianity or Judaism.
Graham is a courageous man who is stating the obvious to millions of Americans - that Islam is not a peaceful religion. But his words fall like a hammer to those on the politically-correct Left who don't even believe there is such a thing as right and wrong, good and evil. To them, all things are shades of gray, especially when it comes to religion.
But all you have to do is look at what Islam produces in a society where it is the dominant religion. Where on earth is there a place that Islam is dominant where you also find respect for human rights, freedom of religion, and an absence of terrorist jihadist activity?
