How dare this man tell the truth! He’s obviously a rabid Islamophobe…
During a debate over Islam in the US, Rev. Franklin Graham used a familiar argument against the religion: It’s unfair that Muslims can build mosques in the US while Christians can’t build churches in Saudi Arabia, according to Graham.
“I understand what the Muslims want to do in America,” said Graham on ABC’s This WeekSunday. “They want to build as many mosques and cultural centers as they possibly can so they can convert as many Americans as they can to Islam.”
“And I just don’t have the freedom to do this in most Muslim countries. We can’t have a church. We’re not able to build synagogues. It’s forbidden.”
But an imam who is trying to build an Islamic center in Tennessee disagreed. “For someone to say we are not allowed to build a church in a Muslim country, this is absolutely not right,” said Imam Osama Bahloul.
Bahloul and Franklin were also at odds over whether violence towards women was allowed under Sharia law.
“I have great difficulty with the — with the religion, especially with Sharia law and what it does for women — toward women, toward non-believers, the violence that is given in — under Sharia law,” said Graham.
“For you to say that Islam is asking Muslims to beat a woman, this is absolutely not right,” replied Bahloul.
“I think to — to take your daughter, because you think that — and the religion gives you the authority — Sharia gives you the authority for honor killing,” said Graham.
“It does not,” interrupted Bahloul.
Peter Gadiel, whose son died on 9/11, spoke up. “Your people justify it from the Koran,” he said.
