Christian evangelist and humanitarian Franklin Graham has come under attack from the socialist Mother Jones magazine for expressing concern about the Obama Administration’s ties to the Muslim Brotherhood. With overwhelming proof that Muslim Brotherhood front groups and Islamapologists in the White House are having an impact on America’s foreign and domestic security policy, Mother Jones opts to turn a blind eye, going after Graham for promoting a so-called “conspiracy theory“. At the White House, Graham is out, Islam is in…and Mother Jones is in need of a reality check.
The Vatican formed a special committee late last year to address the flight of Christians and the rise of militant Islam in the Middle East. In his New Year’s message, Pope Benedict XVI said Christians suffer more than any other religious group because of their faith.
Asked if President Barack Obama was doing enough to protect Christians at home and abroad, Graham says, “No. If anything it’s the opposite.”
Graham specifically pointed out President Obama’s failure to speak for Christians in Egypt and other countries while the Muslim Brotherhood has been promoted as a legitimate partner in “democracy“. The Obama Administration stands clearly on the opposite side of the worldwide Christian community in regard to the Islamist vs. Christian struggle in Pakistan and the Arab world. As Christians face a horrific turning point in history marked by “near genocide” as one Iraqi archbishop put it, President Obama has opened his arms to the Muslim Brotherhood. But Franklin Graham? He’s a problem for Mother Jones.
For his part, Graham was not at all apologetic about his attacks on Islam.
Criticizing a minister for saying that a religion that is diametrically opposed to his own is “evil” seems to classify as a new twist on Commandment # 3 of leftist reporting on Islam: Thou Shalt Keep Holy the Name of Islam.
