Franklin Graham

bigotted christian preacher to read Good Friday Prayers
This just in- Franklin Graham(son of Billy Graham), well-known christian evangalist and critic of Islam, is to read the Good Friday prayers at the pentagon on friday, April 18. Franklin has recently made several conteversial remarks about Islam, such as "Islam is a very evil and wicked religion." Several Muslim workers at the pentagon have lodged complaints about Mr. Graham speaking at the Pentagon, but Pentagon officals plan to have Mr. Graham speak as scheduled. Good Friday is the Christian commemeration of Christ's crucifixion. Christians believe that Christ died for the forgiveness of sins. Hope that's so... the U.S. is certainly going to need some redemption at the end of all of this. I will post more information as it becomes available.
