Rev. Franklin Graham to Stand Outside Pentagon and Pray for Troops After Being Dis-Invited to Speak Inside - Video 5/5/10
Here is video of the Rev. Franklin Graham on with Greta Van Susteren last night, where he said he plans to go to the Pentagon today - on the National Day of Prayer - and pray outside the Pentagon for our men and women in uniform since he was dis-invited to participate in an event inside.
"I'm just going to stand out there and pray. I don't have to be invited to a prayer service to pray for the men and women who serve this nation. I am so proud of my son who is on his 4th deployment (to Afghanistan). I pray for him and the men that are under him, and the men that are above him, and I'm so proud of the men and women of our Army, our Navy, our Air Force, our Coast Guard - I'm proud of them. I'm going to the Pentagon just to pray. I want them to know that I support them."Graham said he has not heard from Obama on the issue of his being disinvited to participate in the Pentagon event, and that the military Chaplains he has spoken to "have to say what they have been told to say."
Graham continued to stand by his comments on Islam, saying "I don't believe Muhammed can lead anybody to God. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins, that He was buried for our sins, that God raised Him to life....The Muslims don't agree with me. I don't agree with them."
Graham also talked about the way Islam treats women, and pointed out that the Koran itself says that you cannot take a Christian or a Jew as your friend. Graham raised the profile of Christians being persecuted in Islam-dominated nations by pointing out that a Muslim who converts to Christianity, "your family would kill you" if you did not "repent and turn back to Islam."
