Exactly right, not moderate, not extremist, not ”Islamist”, but Islam.
Rev. Graham: ‘Christians Are Under Attack by Islam’
CNSNews.com) – Rev. Franklin Graham, son of evangelist Billy Graham and head of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, said “Christians are under attack by Islam” and that “radical” Islam has nothing to do with it because “it’s just what it is.”
Speaking at the Watchmen on the Wall National Pastor’s Briefing in Washington, D.C. on Thursday, Rev. Graham said, “The church around the world is under attack. Christians are under attack by Islam. They keep using this word ‘radical.’ It’s not radical, it’s just what it is.”
“Let’s stand up for our brothers and sisters in faith around the world who are being persecuted for their faith,” he said. “Because if we don’t stand up for them, there’s no other voice for them. There’s no other voice.”
Graham, who is also the head of the international Christian aid group Samaritan’s Purse, made his remarks on Thursday evening at the event, which is a three-day gathering (May 21-23) sponsored by the Family Research Council (FRC).
Commenting on the persecution of Christians overseas, Rev. Graham mentioned American Pastor Saeed Abedini, a former Muslim who converted to Christianity and who was sentenced to an eight-year prison term in Iran for evangelizing.
