Rev. Franklin Graham, the son of the evangelist Billy Graham, told Morning Joe‘s panel that he couldn’t say whether or not President Obama is a Christian.

“I think you have to ask President Obama,” Reverend Franklin Graham said on February 21, 2012.

Rev. Graham insisted that though the president goes to church on Sundays, he can only take Obama “at his word,” and does not know if Obama is a Christian in his heart.

“The Muslim world sees Barack Obama as a son of Islam,” because Obama’s father was Muslim, Graham added.

The reverend did, however, identify then-Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum as a Christian, saying that Santorm’s moral and Christian values are “so clear.”  When asked about Mitt Romney, Reverend Graham said that most Protestants do not view Mormonism as a Christian faith.

Graham later apologized for questioning the president’s faith.

  1. What would be wrong if he was a Muslim? Religious freedom is the whole point of this nation. Do these people really fully believe that he would automatically be somehow dangerous if he was Muslim? If so these people are insane and need to study the history of this nation they are so worried about. How quickly the Christians forget the inquisition.

    Also this guy seems awfully worried about minorities overseas. How much does he worry about minorities in the US? I doubt much at all. This guy is obviously racist and islamophobic. This guys ideal America is all white male and all Christian. Sad really. I hope this guy finds unconditional love one day. The kind he talks about having received from God and Jesus.

Have your say!
