Franklin Graham Yanked By Pentagon From National Day Of Prayer
The Pentagon has rescinded its offer to include Franklin Graham, son of Billy, in its National Day of Prayer celebration. This comes after objections were raised by advocacy groups because of Graham’s past comments about Islam, including calling the religion “evil.” Graham told FOX News this week he hopes Muslims will find Jesus.
