Rev. Franklin Graham has issued an apology for questioning President Obama’s faith. The evangelist son of Billy Graham in an interview on Morning Joe , when asked about the president’s faith, repeatedly said, “I don’t know, ask him.”
He then alleged that President Obama cares more about Muslims than “Christians who are being killed by Muslims.
The NAACP along with other civil rights groups sent an letter to Graham demanding he retract his hateful statements.
In response Graham said , “I regret any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president, Mr. Obama. The president has said he is a Christian and I accept that…”
Graham went on to explain that his reason for not supporting President Obama were on moral grounds, citing abortion rights and marriage.
In the Morning Joe interview Graham quickly indicated he thought New Gingrich and Rick Santorum were Christians.
