Franklin Graham, who has called Islam evil, is due to speak at a festival in Blackpool
Britains leading Muslim organisation has called on the Home Office to refuse a UK visa to a prominent US evangelical preacher with links to Donald Trump and a track record of Islamophobic and homophobic statements.
Franklin Graham, the son of the evangelist Billy Graham, has been invited to preach at a Christian festival in Blackpool this month.
The preacher, who said Trumps election victory was evidence that Gods hand was at work, has called Islam evil and wicked, claimed Barack Obamas problem is that he was born a Muslim and said Satan was the architect of same-sex marriage and LGBT rights.
The Muslim Council of Britain has joined three MPs, including a government whip, in demanding the Home Office apply its criteria on hate speech to Grahams visa request.
The MCB said: In the past the government has banned individuals whom they claim are not conducive to the public good. Mr Grahams remarks are on record and clearly demonstrate a hatred for Muslims and other minorities.
We would expect the government to apply its criteria here. If it does not, it will send a clear message that it is not consistent in challenging all forms of bigotry.
Fiyaz Mughal, the founder of Tell Mama, which monitors Islamophobia in the UK, said it was shocking that Graham was being given a platform. His views were regressive and need to be challenged, he said.

This is just one kind of the evil krap that happens to any Christian or other civilized country that lets Muslims in. UK has been sold out to the Islamic hordes / and soon oppressive shariah law and a Muslim dictatorship
If the British MPs want to hear hate speech, they should read the Koran. Franklin Graham’s speech pales in comparison.
For being a fairly small minority, it’s amazing how much power Islam can grab from sucker nations with white guilt.
How do Franklin Graham’s statements compare to things we know are being said in mosques all over the world?
...and a track record of Islamophobic and homophobic statements...
Last I knew, Muslims overseas were killing homosexuals. Has something changed?
Remember the President of Iran said there were no homosexuals in Iran.
I will bet that if Louis Farrakhan wished to come to a Muslim organization talk he would be welcome with open arms. The Brit’s are off their rocker.
“Franklin Graham, the son of the evangelist Billy Graham, has been invited to preach at a Christian festival in Blackpool this month.”
This has nothing to do w Trump, the media is just trying to make sound that way.
The Muslims hate Christians. That is what it’s all about. Hope the UK will not go along with their request by denying visa to Graham for no reason at all.
Honestly, I will be shocked if the British government lets Franklin Graham visit the UK. It is that far gone...
ISLAM: to submit
MUSLIMS: have submitted.
Muslim 3-Step Program:
* Religious - Immigrate to a country.
* Political - Increase in number.
* Militant - Eliminate those who oppose them.
Take time to listen to this short C-SPAN book review by American Historian by WILLIAM FEDERER on Islam. Pass the link to others.
During the Q & A a student asked why legislators are so weak when it comes to condemning Islamic aggression.
FEDERER responded, 3 Things.
1. They are ignorant about the history of Islam.
2. They are afraid of Islam aggression.
3. They are on the take.
U.S. citizens do not need a visa for tourist or business travel to the United Kingdom for a stay up to 6 months. A valid U.S. Passport is required.
You need a visa to go to Great Britain???
If so, it must be time to retaliate...Trump style. (i.e.: twice as hard)
Islam turns it’s back on God in every way..satanic cult of perverts
Graham is right. It is evil. It’s the most evil ideology ever dreamed up by man.
If Graham is preachung, the UK may be insisting on a work visa. If so, it’s still cr@p.
Like a crucifix or sunlight to a vampire, Muslims cannot handle the truth.
You are right about the work visa. I forgot about that.
Also because I sense also because a number of Muslims have come to faith in Christ.
