What Franklin Graham’s Father Said in 1981 about Mixing Religion and Right-Wing Politics

“I don’t want to see religious bigotry in any form. It would disturb me if there was a wedding between the religious fundamentalists and the political Right. The hard Right has no interest in religion except to manipulate it.”

Billy Graham, Parade Magazine, 1981

Franklin Graham Suggests Stopping Muslim Immigration

Every Muslim that comes into this country has the potential to be radicalized – and they do their killing to honor their religion and Muhammad. During World War 2, we didn’t allow Japanese to immigrate to America, nor did we allow Germans. Why are we allowing Muslims now?

— Franklin Graham, urging in a Facebook post for a halt to all Muslims coming into the United States in the aftermath of shootings in Chattanooga that killed four Marines and one sailor.

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.

— The Rev. Frankin Graham, quoted by Right Wing Watch.
