Graham: Army disinvites him to Pentagon Prayer Day
WASHINGTON — Christian evangelist Franklin Graham says the Army has withdrawn an invitation for him to appear at a special Pentagon prayer service.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.
