The Rev. Franklin Graham today joined a list of right-wingers who have questioned President Obama’s faith. Graham is the son of evangelist Billy Graham.
Appearing on the “Morning Joe” program, he repeatedly said, “Ask President Obama” when asked whether the U.S. president is a Christian. However Graham quickly answered, “Yes” when questioned if Rick Sanatorium or Newt Gingrich were Christians.
Graham then went on to say, “All I know is that Obama is more concerned about the Muslims than all the Christians being killed in Muslim countries.”
GOP candidate Rick Sanatorium also questioned the president’s Christian values recently. “Rick Santorum told voters recently that President Obama adheres to ‘some phony theology. Not a theology based on the Bible.'”
An aide to Sanatorium recently claimed President Obama is following “radical Islamic policies.” The aide, Alice Stewart, later retracted the statement.
The GOP is clearly injecting race and hatred into the campaign. Write or call Rev. Franklin Graham and tell him this racial bigotry must end! He can be reached at:
