Obama ‘giving Islam a pass,’ warns of persecution

“I’m being restricted from my religious rights, and from what I believe,” Graham warned, as he complained of a growing “secularization”
Evangelical leader Rev. Franklin Graham issued his toughest remarks yet Monday on the administration’s role in revoking his invitation to speak at the Pentagon’s National Day of Prayer event, charging that President Obama is “giving Islam a pass” rather than speaking openly about the “horrific” treatment women and minorities receive in many Muslim countries.

In an exclusive telephone interview with Newsmax.TV, Graham called revoking his invitation to the prayer service “a slap at all evangelical Christians.”

And he clearly placed the blame on the Obama administration, telling Newsmax that the Pentagon would never revoke such an invitation without first consulting with the White House.
