Shameful display of dhimmitude: Pentagon/Army disinvite Franklin Graham from speaking at National Day of Prayer event

Shameful!  I am truly sickened by the weakness our Pentagon has shown this week on this issue.

From Yahoo!News via Atlas Shrugs:

WASHINGTON – Christian evangelist Franklin Graham says the Army has withdrawn an invitation for him to appear at a special Pentagon prayer service.

In a statement Thursday, Graham said he regrets the Army’s decision and will continue to pray for the troops.

Graham, the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, in 2001 described Islam as evil. More recently, he has said he finds Islam offensive and wants Muslims to know that Jesus Christ died for their sins.

So a Christian evangelist who has done more for the poor and tragic in this world than all Muslims combined is now silenced because he finds the actions of Muslims as offensive, even while praying for their souls?  What alternate universe do we now live in?

How is it wrong for an American Christian to call out Muslims on their treatment of women, their violent teachings and more?

Before the Pentagon decided to dis-invite Graham, Atlas Shrugs makes a great point in comparing the present-day killing of Jews and Christians, in the name of Islam, to the love spread by Franklin Graham.  No comparison. 

Hate sponsor CAIR National Executive Director Nihad Awad said, “Franklin Graham’s appearance [at the Pentagon] has the potential to harm unit cohesion and morale through the promotion of distorted, intolerant and divisive views within military ranks.” Is Awad threatening us with another Major Hasan Fort Hood jihad massacre? There is an implied threat.

The jihadist infiltrators are feeling emboldened. You ain’t seen nuthin yet, brothers and sisters. The forces of darkness are pressuring the already compromised Pentagon to cancel Franklin Graham. I hope Graham brings recent pictures of all the Christians and Jews murdered at the hands of jihad in Nigeria, Indonesia, Somalia, Lebanon, Israel, Iran, etc., about which CAIR has been diabolically silent.

It’s OK for hateful and jihadist imams like Johari Abdul-Malik of the 911 terror mosque Dar al-Hijrah to give the opening prayer to the oldest elected state legislature at the state capital in Virginia, and it’s OK that Obama’s inauguration prayer was given by the president of  a terror linked organization … but Franklin Graham is the problem?

Franklin Graham is the solution. I pray he doesn’t submit to Islamic thuggery and supremacism and retract, or that the mighty Pentagon doesn’t quiver, cower, cry and cave to CAIR.

Franklin didn’t cower, but the Pentagon did, unfortunately.

Perhaps Sarah Palin, on her Facebook page, has said it best:

My, have things changed. I was honored to have Rev. Franklin Graham speak at my Governor’s Prayer Breakfasts. His good work in Alaska’s Native villages and his charitable efforts all over the world stem from his servant’s heart. In my years of knowing him, I’ve never found his tempered and biblically-based comments to be offensive – in fact his words have been encouraging and full of real hope.

It’s truly a sad day when such a fine patriotic man, whose son is serving on his fourth deployment in Afghanistan to protect our freedom of speech and religion, is dis-invited from speaking at the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer service. His comments in 2001 were aimed at those who are so radical that they would kill innocent people and subjugate women in the name of religion.

Are we really so hyper-politically correct that we can’t abide a Christian minister who expresses his views on matters of faith? What a shame. Yes, things have changed.

– Sarah Palin

What a sad day when Christian voices are silenced in the name of Islam in America—and done so by the very military that is supposed to protect our rights to speak.  I’m shaking my head in shame.
Was it not Muslims that killed 3000 Americans on 9/11/01?  Is it not Muslims who have declared that Israel must be removed from the face of the earth?  Was it not followers of Islam who beheaded an American journalist and many others? 
Would the military rather have invited a cleric/imam to speak out of “fairness”?  I’m sure that’s what CAIR would propose.  So next time just who will get to speak at such a prayer event in a country founded upon Judeo-Christian principles? 
You know what offends me?  The very same groups (CAIR) and hyper-Muslims who NEVER speak out about the atrocities their followers perpetrate on innocents, but are “offended” by a few words and a man who calls them out on it.   He must be elminated from speaking!  Islam is a deceptive and dangerous religion…I agree with Frankin.  Americans caving to their demands and deception do none of us any favors in the end.
 I’m sick of our government, leaders, and now, military caving to the demands of a religion whose main contribution to the world is war, violence, death, and fear. 
It is a very rare moment when I would say this but shame on our Pentagon and our military today.
As a commenter at Atlas Shrug writes:
There are many in our midst who are of the darkness. They deceive, and are being deceived. Our only weapon against them is light, and truth which cannot be destroyed by darkness. ………… Do not lose heart, truth shall overcome in the end.

  1. SRT: Again you are on target with your comments.
    We will not vanquish the scourge of Islamism (Radical Islam) until we acknowledge it is the enemy and it is within. Ignoring it, wishing it away, and finding other culprits will not make the problem go away. It will only encourage these terrorists…
    Oh by the way, Sarah Palin speaks for the silent majority in “fly over country” and is also right on target.

  2. […] don’t forget that just this year the Pentagon/Army disinvited well-known evangelist Franklin Graham to the National Day of Prayer breakfast simply for speaking out against the brutally of Islam in […]
