Franklin Graham: Our nation’s security is at stake
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — In a Facebook post, evangelist Franklin Graham called for immigration reform and warned that the country’s “security is at stake.”
Graham acknowledged that his opinion had drawn criticism from others in the past.
He went on to write:
“We cannot allow Muslim immigrants to come across our borders unchecked while we are fighting this war on terror. If we continue to allow Muslim immigration, we’ll see much more of what happened in Paris — it’s on our doorstep. France and Europe are being overrun by young Muslim men from the Middle East, and they do not know their backgrounds or their motives and intentions.”
Graham disagreed with former president George W. Bush and President Barack Obama, declaring that “Islam is not a peaceful religion.”
“Our president and our politicians in Washington need to wake up before it’s too late. This is not the time to be politically correct. Our nation’s security is at stake. The future of our children and grandchildren is at stake. We should not allow any political or religious group who want to destroy us and our way of life to immigrate to this country. Right now let us continue to pray for the victims and family members of the #parisattacks,” Graham added.
