Franklin Graham Hears Professor Say Christians And Muslims Worship Same God, Can’t Hold Back Any Longer…

Franklin Graham has weighed in on a controversy at a celebrated evangelical Christian university, where a professor claims that Christians and Muslims pray to the same God.

Dr. Larycia Hawkins, a political science professor at Wheaton College (the “evangelical Harvard”), faces dismissal after she started wearing a Muslim hijab and asserting that Christians, Muslims and Jews worship the same God.

“I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book,” she wrote in a Dec. 10 Facebook post. “And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.”

Following reports last week that the Wheaton Faculty Council voted unanimously to retain Hawkins, Franklin Graham wrote a Facebook post expressing his disappointment with the university:

Both my father Billy Graham and my mother attended Wheaton College in Illinois–in fact that’s where they met. I’m surprised and disappointed that the faculty council there is now recommending the college drop their plans to terminate a professor who published that she believed Islam and Christianity worship the same God in December.

Islam denies that God has a Son. They deny that Jesus is God. They do not believe in a Triune God–the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. I can tell you–Islam and Christianity clearly do not worship the same God. How the faculty council can now support this professor being allowed to teach students is deeply concerning.

While the Christian scripture contains the Torah and other Jewish holy writings in what is called the Old Testament, which primarily records God’s dealing with the Jewish’s people, it does not contain any writings of the Koran. The latter consists of the teachings of Muhammad, which he claimed were revelations directly from Allah. Muhammad lived approximately 600 years after Christ.

Jesus, who ministered mainly among the Jewish people and then sent his disciples to the world, made a claim of exclusivity saying, “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father, except through me.”

The final determination of Professor Hawkins’ fate has not been made. “The next step in this process is a hearing before the Faculty Personnel Committee [on Feb. 11]. The Faculty Personnel Committee will receive presentations from the Provost and Dr. Hawkins regarding the substantive and procedural issues each would like to raise, will review the evidence presented, and will make a formal recommendation regarding the termination of tenure,” a statement from the university read.

“The Faculty Personnel Committee’s recommendation will then be taken into consideration by President Ryken, as he makes his recommendation to the Board of Trustees.”

Both my father Billy Graham and my mother attended Wheaton College in Illinois–in fact that’s where they met. I’m…

Watch: Sheriff David Clarke Drops 7 Word Truth Bomb About Muslim Who Shot Philly Cop

Mayor of Philadelphia, PA Jim Kenney held a press conference to discuss the recent ISIS related terrorist attack on Philadelphia Police Officer Jesse Hartnett. Kenney addressed the public concerning the role that Islam may have played in the attack.

“In no way shape or form does anyone in this room believe that Islam or the teaching of Islam has anything to do with what you’ve seen on the screen,” Kenney said. “That is abhorrent. It’s terrible and it does not represent the religion in any way, shape, or form or any of it teachings. This is a criminal, with a stolen gun, who tried to kill one of our officers. It has nothing to do with being a Muslim or following Islamic faith.”

However, the criminal himself admitted that he was motivated to execute Officer Hartnett by his allegiance to the ISIS and Allah.

Mayor Kenney’s apparent attempt to downplay the incident has man outraged. Western Journalism reported the “fuming” response from Fox News guest Judge Jeanine Pirro:

How dare you take the sympathy away from the victim, Officer Hartnett? And the men and women in blue under siege in this country by the haters and turn it into sympathy and understanding for a different group? I don’t need you tell me or lecture me what I should be thinking because you want to suck up to the commander in chief. How about you drop your liberal, ideological nonsense and stop apologizing and start focusing on the threats to kill those in your department. I don’t know if you need to see an eye doctor, but the man is wearing Muslim garb! He has sworn allegiance to ISIS. He told the cops he did it for Allah and ISIS. His own mother says he’s a devout Muslim. Are you stupid?

 

Now, another high-profile critic has come forward to also directly contradict Kenney’s assertion that the incident was not an Islamic-inspired terrorist attack.

Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clark contradicted Kenney’s statement saying, “As Ben Franklin said, ‘we are all born ignorant but one must work really hard to remain stupid.’ Apparently he had Mayor Kenney in mind when he said that …That is an idiotic statement [referencing Kenny’s comments]. This has everything to do with Islam as a political ideology.”

Clark stated that President Obama, and other liberals like the bureaucrats in Philadelphia, “continue to live in denial about the fact that war has been declared and now has reached the homeland.”

New Movie That Fiercely Attacks PC Culture Is Setting Records, And Liberals Are Furious

Adam Sandler’s new politically incorrect film, The Ridiculous 6, made Netflix history last month, becoming the most watched film during its opening period in the company’s history.

The Western parody has been widely panned by film critics, earning a zero percent rating on Rotten Tomatoes, with 28 negative reviews to date. It is the first of four films Sandler agreed to make for Netflix in a deal signed in October 2014.

“In the first 30 days on Netflix, [Ridiculous 6 has] been the most-watched movie in the history of Netflix,” the company’s chief content officer Ted Sandros said. “It’s also enjoyed a spot at #1 in every territory we operate in, and in many of them it’s still #1.” Netflix defines the opening period as the first 30 days a film goes up on its site, Entertainment Weekly reported

“The film sparked controversy in April of 2014, after roughly a dozen Native American actors walked off the set citing concerns that the movie was sexist and disrespectful to the Navajo and Apache tribes,” Breitbart reported. 

Netflix defended Sandler following the walk-off, telling ABC News in a statement that, “The movie has ridiculous in the title for a reason: because it is ridiculous. It is a broad satire of Western movies and the stereotypes they popularized, featuring a diverse cast that is not only part of — but in on — the joke.”

GQ’s Jake Woolf, who panned the movie, writes, “Whatever the reason, the people have spoken, and Sandler movies are here to stay (and stream) for at least the foreseeable future.”

BOOM: Trump’s Wife Just Broke Her Silence, Reveals Personal Reason Why Her Husband Is Right

Donald Trump’s wife, Melania Trump, recently sat down with Harpers Bazaar magazine. The 45-year-old appears to enjoy the lavish lifestyle the penthouse in the Trump Towers offers. The apartment is located in the top three floors of the 68 floor Trump Towers, causing the interview’s setting to perhaps bring to mind an episode of Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous rather than Meet the Press.

Alex Kuczynski of the Bazaar wrote, “The couple’s penthouse, which they share with their nine-year-old son, Barron, even features a Versailles-style hall of mirrors, a white marble fountain, and ceilings hand-painted with cherubs.”

Kucynski believes Donald Trump’s over-the-top lifestyle seems to mirror his campaign writing, “His blustery breed of radical populism has activated a large voter base and ignited an uncomfortable mix of rage, passion, and concern on both sides of the aisle. And yet, despite his inflammatory remarks about women, immigrants, Mexicans, Muslims, his political competitors, and a host of other constituencies too long to list here, he has continued to surge in the polls.”

Mrs. Trump told Kucynski her husband’s decision to run for president was fully supported the entire Trump family. Despite her support of his run, she has not enjoyed being mischaracterized by the media. Melania told Kucynski, “They say I’m shy … I am not shy. They interview people about me who don’t even know me. These people, they want to have 15 minutes of fame in talking about me, and reporters don’t check the facts … You can see how they turn around stories and how unfair they can be.” Concerning her husband Melania said, “He is not politically correct, and he tells the truth. Everything is not roses and flowers and perfect, because it is not. He can do that.”

Melania is a naturalized U.S. citizen from Yugoslavia, and believes if immigrants want to come to the U.S. they should do so legally. In the event of a Trump presidential victory, Melania will become the second foreign-born first lady in U.S. history. Melania said, “I came here for my career, and I did so well, I moved here. It never crossed my mind to stay here without papers. That is just the person you are. You follow the rules. You follow the law. Every few months you need to fly back to Europe and stamp your visa. After a few visas, I applied for a green card and got it in 2001. After the green card, I applied for citizenship. And it was a long process.”

Melania also supports her husband’s efforts to build a U.S./Mexican border wall and temporarily suspend Muslims from entering the U.S.

WATCH: Ted Cruz’s Dad Just Dropped A Truth Bomb On America That Everyone Needs To See

Before American society can even begin to address its problems, Americans must stop covering over major moral issues with the wallpaper of words that soften and shade the truth, says Rev. Rafael Cruz.

In a recent speech, father of Republican presidential candidate Sen. Ted Cruz addressed evangelical Christians saying, “We have to stop being politically correct. We have to stop acquiescing even to the wording that the liberals use.”

Rev. Cruz then gave examples of how words matter.

“Just think about it,” he said. “They talk about the issue of life. They say ‘pro-life’ or ‘pro-choice.’ That’s not the right word. It is ‘pro-life’ or ‘pro-death.’ It is ‘pro-life’ or ‘pro-murder.’”

“And so, it’s just like calling homosexuals ‘gays,’” he said. “Gay means happy. Then they try to delude it so it becomes socially acceptable, and if you say anything against homosexual marriage, then oh, you’re not tolerant.”

“So we’re supposed to prostitute our principles on behalf of tolerance,” he said.

“Well, I’ll tell you what,” Rev. Cruz continued. “There are absolutes. There are absolutes. Start being biblically correct instead of politically correct.”

Rev. Cruz has taken a hard line on language before, and at one time highlighted how Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tried to use words to screen her support for abortion.

“Hillary Clinton embraces abortion on demand in all circumstances up until the moment of birth. Partial-birth abortion with taxpayer funding, with no notification for parents in any circumstances – 91 percent of Americans say that’s nuts,” he said.

“So what do they do, they try to shift it. The ‘war on women’ wasn’t that, it was contraceptives,” Rev. Cruz said. “Now listen, I have been a conservative my entire life. I have never met anybody, any conservative who wants to ban contraceptives.”

Do you support Ted Cruz? Like the page:

The so-called “war on women” was “concocted” by Democrats to shift the public’s eyes away from the party’s radical support for abortion, Rev. Cruz claimed.
