With the rise of the megachurch, a certain “feel good” version of Christianity is said to have arrived and watered down the truly bold message of Jesus Christ. While that may be true, Reverend Franklin Graham is certainly not a minister who worries about that as he today demands that everyone, including politicians, refrain from calling Islam a religion of peace.
As radio host Michael Savage and others have done for quite some time, Breitbart News reports that Graham is now saying what so many have been afraid to say. Islam, at the very core and, even when not attached to explosives, is a very dangerous religion.

While backlash shall follow, the Christian leader spoke the truth when he said, “we are making a mistake by allowing the operation and spread of the dark and dangerous teachings of Islam.”
While making a reference to a piece written by former CIA officer Bryan Dean Wright, Graham also said, “From Bangladesh to Los Angeles, Salafis spread their violent beliefs shielded by the constitutional guarantees of free speech and religious liberty.”
It is good in the Trump era to see Christian leaders again speaking with conviction and truth, as Teddy Stick reported earlier was the case when Jerry Farwell Jr. stood beside the U.S. leader and condemned violence on both sides of the Virginia nightmare.
The minister points out that these problems “aren’t limited to only the Salafis sect” and he warns that “While there are millions of Muslims who don’t agree with or participate in the violence of Islam, they can’t leave the religion because their families would be obligated to kill them.”
Reminding the world that “Islam is only in the Middle East today due to the power of their killing and forcing people to convert,” Graham writes, “Islam reigns in lives through fear and intimidation. I pray that Muslims everywhere will come to know Jesus Christ, the Son of God who loves them and can truly set them free. The Word of God tells us, ‘So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.”
Hopefully, people will hear these words and keep them very much in the front of their minds.
There are problems brewing all over the world, and with stunning regularity, the Muslim faith is a factor.
This, politically incorrect or not, isn’t an accident.
