Franklin Graham: Islam is a Religion of War

Franklin Graham says Islam is a “religion of war.” The statements from Graham, the son of Billy Graham, came after he referred to Islam as a “very wicked and evil religion” after the 2001 World Trade Center attacks.


"I have not changed my opinion at all,” he told to Christianity Today.


“This is Islam. It has not been hijacked by radicals. This is the faith, this is the religion. It is what it is. It speaks for itself."


Recently, Graham said it was “sad” that the Episcopal Church’s National Cathedral in Washington allowed a Muslim prayer service.


"It's sad to see a church open its doors to the worship of anything other than the One True God of the Bible who sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to earth to save us from our sins.


"The God of Islam is not the same God of the Judaeo-Christian faith. The God that we worship in Christianity is a God that has a Son. To Islam, that is blasphemy, to say that God has a son. Therefore, they do not worship the God that we worship,” he added.


Franklin is also the head of Samaritan’s Purse, an international charity that sponsors Operation Christmas Child.
