The famous Christian minister Franklin Graham has become known for his stand against radical Islam.
In his first post, Graham argued that the immigration of Muslims “should be stopped until we can properly vet them or until the war with Islam is over.”
He spoke out about Speaker of the House Paul Ryan who said that “such views are not what this party stands for and more importantly it’s not what this country stands for.”
After mentioning Ryan’s more moderate views on immigration, Graham then writes that “politicians in Washington seem to be totally disconnected with reality.”
Graham mentions shocking statistics about Muslims in America in his first post. He writes:
Research shows that there are 2.75 million Muslims living in the U.S. According to a poll commissioned by the Center for Security Policy, 51% of Muslims living in America believe “Muslims in America should have the choice of being governed according to sharia” (Islamic law) instead of the U.S. Constitution. 29% agree that violence against those who insult Mohammad is acceptable, and 25% agree that violence against America can be justified as a part of global jihad.
In his second post, Graham takes on the popular notion that, “the vast majority of Muslims are peaceful people.”
He notes that Pew research released information that said that, “8% of Muslims in the U.S. said that suicide bombings and other forms of violence in the name of Islam are ‘sometimes’ or ‘often’ justified.”
Graham concludes his Facebook post, saying: “I’m 100% sure of this- our nation and our politicians need to realize the dangers of allowing people into this country that are not properly vetted.”
