Franklin Graham: Islam Is ‘Horrid’ For Its Treatment Of Women

Evangelist Franklin Graham is sticking by his remarks about Islam, including that Muslims are “enslaved” by their religion, even as he faces being uninvited from the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer service on May 6.

Franklin, the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, told Fox News on Thursday that he loves Muslim people and wants them to know that God loves them, even if they can be saved only through Jesus Christ.

“I want them to know that they don’t have to die in a car bomb, don’t have to die in some kind of holy war to be accepted by God. But it’s through faith in Jesus Christ and Christ alone,” Graham said.

Graham said said he loves the Muslim people, just not their religion — which he called “horrid” for its restrictions on women.

“I love the people of Islam but their religion, I do not agree with their religion at all. And if you look at what the religion does just to women, women alone, it is just horrid. And so yes, I speak out for women. I speak out for people that live under Islam, that are enslaved by Islam and I want them to know that they can be free,” he said.

In Defense of Tulsi

Not Less Religion, Just Different Religion

The Pew Poll tells us that society is secularizing -- particularly among the young -- and who can deny it? That is one reason that the free expression of religion is under such intense pressure in the West. But it seems to me that we aren't really becoming less religious. Rather, many are merely changing that ... Read More
