Evangelist Franklin Graham said Muslims must be barred from entering the United States, in light of what he purports to be the growing “threat” of Islam evidenced by the recent fatal shootings in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In the wake of last week’s tragedy that claimed the lives of five service members, the son of celebrated evangelist, the Rev. Billy Graham, said Friday that America needs to bring an end to the immigration of Muslims to the U.S.
Franklin Graham posted to his Facebook page that those deaths are the result of “a radical Muslim whose family was allowed to immigrate to this country from Kuwait.”
“We are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad. We should stop all immigration of Muslims to the U.S. until this threat with Islam has been settled,” he continued. “Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized — and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad. During World War 2, we didn’t allow Japanese to immigrate to America, nor did we allow Germans. Why are we allowing Muslims now? Do you agree? Let your Congressman know that we’ve got to put a stop to this and close the flood gates. Pray for the men and women who serve this nation in uniform, that God would protect them,” Mr. Graham said.
