Franklin Graham is an idiot

By Richard K. Barry

Nothing brings my blood to a boil quicker than so-called "men of God" peddling hatred. 

As Right Wing Watch reports:
Franklin Graham was a guest on the Family Research Council's "Washington Watch" radio program  . . . where he asserted that President Obama is refusing to fight ISIS because he wants to protect Islam since even his mother was a Muslim.

Ignoring the fact that Obama's father was an atheist and his mother agnostic, Graham told FRC head Tony Perkins that "one of the problems we have [is that Obama's] father was a Muslim, and his step-father was a Muslim. [He] lived in Indonesia and went to Muslim schools. His mother must have been a Muslim — we don't know that, but she married two Muslim men, so there must have been something there. And the framework that the president has growing up, his influences in his life was that of Islam."

"My influences growing up, as many in this country, were under the Christian influence and the biblical influence," he continued. "But our president did not have that, it was Islam and many feel that he's protecting Islam. I don't know that, but it certainly seems that way":

Forgetting for a moment that the facts of the matter are of no interest to Graham, the suggestion that the only way one can possibly act in a moral manner is if one uses Christian and biblical influences as a guide is nauseating.
