-Franklin Graham and Most Protestant Pastors Agree on Islam

Franklin Graham was recently ‘un’-invited to participate in a service at the Pentagon on the National Day of Prayer because of past negative statements he had made against Islam.

The news media made it seem like Franklin was radical in his views but this is not the case at all. According to a new LifeWay Research survey, most Protestant pastors agree with Graham and share a negative view of the Muslim religion.

The research found that 82% of the pastors surveyed believed that Islam is “fundamentally different from Christianity,”  68% strongly disagreed that “Christians and Muslims pray to the same God,” and 42% believe that the religion “promotes violence”.

The pastors were also given a choice between two statements on Islam–one by Franklin Graham:

a very evil and a very wicked religion

–and one made by President George Bush:

the Muslim faith is based upon peace and love and compassion.

59% of the pastors agreed with Franklin Graham. 47% chose Graham’s statement exclusively and another 12% agreed with both.

Response: It should be obvious from this research that Franklin Graham’s views on Islam are far more mainstream among Christian leaders in America than the PC oriented media would like to admit.

Graham’s statement would have seemed rather harsh to me a few years ago but I must admit that the more I look into the teachings of Islam and see it demonstrated in Muslim dominated countries the more I agree with Franklin’s assessment.            *Top

    MIKEY WEINSTEIN, JESUS-BASHER

    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)!
