CNN's Campbell Brown interviews Rev. Franklin Graham regarding his "dis-invitation" to the National Day of Prayer at the Pentagon:
Email Bethany with your Lunch Break suggestions.
She makes little effort to hide the disgust on her face, especially at the end of the interview. But really, she had nothing to say. I mean, what could you say? He spoke the truth.Posted by: S. at May 17, 2010 12:26 PM

If Franklin Graham after several years of reflection said that he had come to the understanding that he 'mispoke' when he said, 'Muslim is an evil religion', then I could accept that, but he would have to explain clearly how his words were wrong or at inappropriate and ask forgiveness from those whom he wronged.
But Franklin does not want to go there. For whatever reason he wants to let that dog lay.
Speak the truth in love and do not crawfish when the artificial flowers of political correctness get their feined indignance on like a president caught with his pants down.
There is 'prestige' associated with being in the company of the president. Authority and power are powerful seducers.
But Jesus avoided getting sucked into the vortex of conflicting interests.
Billy Graham and Franklin Graham's first mistake was to either extend an invitation to b.o. to come to Billy's home or to agree to a White House request for b.o. to meet with Graham at his home.
The Grahams lent their credibility to b.o. by agreeing to a publically announced meeting.
Now Franklin is trying to butter both sides of the toast and he is coming off looking petty.
b.o. is the president and the comander in chief and as such he is responsilbe for what the Pentagon does, whether is b.o. authorized it or not.
b.o. is no friend to the body of Christ.
If b.o. is a christian, then he is exactly the kind of brother that the apostle Paul instructed believers to shun, both publicly and privately.
When you practice appeasement and attempt to appear nicer than Jesus with people who hate you because you hold to a higher standard than they do, then you only do yourself and the kingdom of God a disservice.Posted by: yor bro ken at May 17, 2010 7:10 PM
I do agree with 'Yor Bro Ken's comment 100% Though, I was ecstatic when Franklin did speak on Islam but glad comment was written!Posted by: PO at May 18, 2010 8:14 PM
UN-AMERICANS FIGHT FRANKLIN GRAHAM !
What kind of wine has Mikey Weinstein been drinking?
As an anti-Christian Jewish supremacist and as the president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, he's doing all he can to create an anti-Jewish backlash and help bring about the predicted endtime Holocaust of Jews that'll be worse than Hitler's.
Neither Falwell, Hagee nor any other Christian initiated this prediction. But Weinstein's ancient Hebrew prophets did.
In the 13th and 14th chapters of his Old Testament book, Zechariah predicted that after Israel's rebirth ALL nations will eventually be against Israel and that TWO-THIRDS of all Jews will be killed!
Malachi revealed the reasons: "Judah hath dealt treacherously" and "the Lord will cut off the man that doeth this."
Haven't evangelicals generally been the best friends of Israel and persons perceived to be Jewish? Then please explain the hate-filled back-stabbing by David Letterman (and Sandra Bernhard, Kathy Griffin, Bill Maher etc.) against followers of Jesus such as Sarah Palin and Michele Bachmann.
Weinstein wouldn't dare assert that citizens on government property don't have freedom of speech or press freedom or freedom to assemble or to petition the government.
But God-hater Weinstein maliciously wants to eliminate from government property the "free exercise" of religion - especially by evangelicals - a freedom found in the same First Amendment. Significantly, this freedom was purposely listed FIRST by America's founders!
And Weinstein wouldn't try to foist "separation of church and state" on strongly-Jewish Israel, but he does try to foist this non-Constitution-mentioned phrase on strongly-Christian America.
In light of Weinstein's Jewish protectionism and violently anti-Christian obsession, Christians in these endtimes should be reminded of Jesus' warning in Mark 13:9 (see also Luke 21:12) that "in the synagogues ye shall be beaten."
Maybe it's time for some modern Paul Reveres to saddle up and shout "The Yiddish are Coming!"
PS - Some, like Weinstein, are so treacherously anti-Christian they will even join hands at times with enemies, including Muslims, in order to silence evangelicals. It was Weinstein, BTW, who put pressure on the Pentagon to dis-invite Franklin Graham from speaking there on the National Day of Prayer!
PPS - Weinstein is an echo of the anti-Christian, anti-American Hollywood which for a century has dangled every known vice before young people. We seriously wonder how soon the lethal worldwide "flood of filth" (global harming!) that Hollywood has created will engulf and destroy itself and help to bring to power the endtime Antichrist (a.k.a. the Man of Sin and the Wicked One)!
