Franklin Graham builds hospital for Mosul, called ‘Islamophobe’ by CAIRFriday, January 13, 2017
a press release from the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), denounced Franklin Graham as an “Islamophobe” who Donald Trump should drop as one of the invited ministers who will pray at next week’s Inauguration:
The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called on President-elect Donald Trump to drop notorious Islamophobe Rev. Franklin Graham from the list of those invited to pray at the presidential inauguration.
“If President-elect Trump truly seeks to unite our nation as he promised in his acceptance speech, he will limit the list of those offering prayers at the inauguration to religious leaders who work to bring us together, not to create divisions between faiths,” said CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad. “Rev. Graham’s ill-informed and extremist views are incompatible with the Constitution and with American values of religious liberty and inclusion.”CAIR’s suggestion will certainly fall on deaf ears with President-elect Trump, who last month said to 20,000 supporters in Mobile, Alabama: “I want to thank so many great people, but having Franklin Graham, who was so instrumental, we won so big, with evangelical Christians, we won so big.”
