The Catholic Church’s overreaches are to blame, not fundamental Christianity.
The same cannot be said of Islam, for to imitate Mohamed, is to become like the Islamic State.
REV. FRANKLIN GRAHAM BLASTS OBAMA’S ISIS-CHRISTIAN MORAL EQUIVALENCY
True followers of Christ emulate Christ—true followers of Mohammed emulate Mohammed. (3 of 3)

The Rev. Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham and head of the international aid organization Samaritan’s Purse, is slamming President Obama for remarks at the National Prayer Breakfast. The president equated the evils that ISIS is carrying out with Christian violence of ages past.
“[S]ome of our leaders, including President Obama, gathered to pray at the National Prayer Breakfast in Washington D.C.,” Graham remarked in a tweet. “I urge you to set aside time today to pray for our country also. May we repent and call on the Name of the Lord,” he said.
Rev. Graham has been openly critical of Islamic practices, particularly its claim to be a religion of peace and its unjust treatment of women.
In 2010, Graham himself was disinvited from the National Day of Prayer event at the Pentagon because of his critical remarks about Islam, including criticism of its treatment of women. “When you look at what the religion [Islam] does to women and women alone, it is just horrid,” he said.
In an Oct. 18, 2014 Facebook post, Graham asked, “Is Islam really a religion of peace? Islamic State justified kidnapping women as sex slaves in the new issue of their online magazine. They said that it is a ‘firmly established aspect of Shariah’ and anyone who denies this is denying the Koran.”
Jim Gilmore, the former governor of Virginia, said Obama’s comments were “the most offensive I’ve ever heard a President make in my lifetime.”
