Franklin Graham, the chief of both Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, is raising the question about why the world is silent while ISIS carries out genocide against Christians.
“It is genocide,” he wrote on Monday in a post on Facebook on a topic he has previously addressed.
“And the world seems largely silent about it.”
He continued, “Genocide perpetrated by the Islamic State against Christians, Yazidis, and other religious minorities of Syria and Iraq. And their methods are unimaginably cruel and heinous. Just a few days ago it was revealed that three Assyrian Christians were executed on September 23, which is the Muslim ‘Feast of Sacrifice,’ and they say they’ll kill more hostages.”
Graham has discussed Islamic practices previously, and several times has brought President Obama into the discussion of the radical results of the faith’s dedicated adherents.
He was “disinvited” from a Washington event in 2010 after saying, “When you look at what the religion (Islam) does to women and women alone, it is just horrid.”
Graham on Monday continued, citing a Fox News report about a new atrocity from Islam.
“And recent reports share the horror of 12 other Christians being murdered on August 28. Why were they killed? For refusing to renounce their faith in Jesus Christ. Eyewitnesses said that ISIS militants crucified a 12-year-old Christian boy and his Syrian missionary father along with two other men after mercilessly brutalizing them. They cut off the boy’s fingertips to try to get his father to convert to Islam. They left their bodies hanging on the crosses for two days under signs reading ‘infidels.’
“On that same day, ISIS militants publicly raped two Christian women in front of a crowd and then beheaded them along with six others when they refused to convert to Islam. ‘They have every intention of spreading that bloodshed around the world, including America,’” Fox News reported. “Pray for an end to this horrendous evil in the name of religion.”
That was when Graham reportedly peppered Obama with questions about his ties to Islam, his Christian baptism and whether he accepts Jesus as his savior.
“I can confirm Rev. Graham did indeed ask Obama about his personal faith. Because it was a private meeting, it is up to Obama if he wants to release any more information,” Graham’s spokesman, Jeremy Blume, told WND at the time.
The question was a big enough issue that Obama’s campaign for president at one point issued a statement, “Senator Obama has never been a Muslim, was not raised as a Muslim, and is a committed Christian.”
But as WND reported, public records in Indonesia listed Obama as a Muslim during his early years, and a number of childhood friends claimed to the media Obama was once a mosque-attending Muslim.
