Barack Obama outraged millions of Americans by visiting a radical mosque this week, and using the occasion to bash Christians yet again for the non-existent crime of “Islamophobia” — when Christians are the victims of violent Muslim jihadists across the globe.
Well Rev. Franklin Graham has responded to President Barack Obama’s mosque visit by penning a scathing rebuttal to the president’s assertion that Americans need to be more accepting of Islam.
“The foundations of this nation have nothing to do with Islam, but everything to do with the Church of Jesus Christ,” Graham wrote on Facebook. “Islam cannot save anyone from hell or open the gates of heaven.”
He added, “Only One can do that — Jesus Christ, the Son of God who paid the debt of sin for all mankind by giving His life as a sacrifice on Calvary’s cross where He suffered and died for our sins, took our sins to the grave, and on the third day God raised Him triumphantly to life.”
Graham also pointed out that Jesus is still alive, whereas the Prophet Muhammad has long been dead.
“I worship a risen Lord!” Graham concluded. “Islam can’t compete with that.”
Graham wrote this toughly worded rebuke in response to Obama visiting a mosque in Baltimore with reportedties to terrorism. Additionally, one of the imams at the mosque is a leading figure in the terrorist organization known as the Muslim Brotherhood.
“It’s disgraceful that this is the mosque he’s picked to be the first to visit,” Dr. M. Zuhdi Jasser, a Muslim himself, reportedly said this past Sunday. “This mosque is very concerning … Historically, they are basically a radical, extreme mosque and not representative of the modern Muslims in America.”
During his trip to the radical mosque, Obama blathered on and on about how Americans need to stop marginalizing “law-abiding, patriotic Muslim Americans” and effectively embrace Islamic religion’s presence in our culture.
Graham clearly disagreed with this — and he certainly wasn’t the only one.
