After learning of the news that 21 Christians were beheaded by members of the Islamic State, President Barack Obama failed to mention that the 21 victims were Christian.
Rev. Franklin Graham, the President of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, released a statement.
“The militant Islamic terrorist group ISIS has released a video called A MESSAGE SIGNED WITH BLOOD TO THE NATION OF THE CROSS showing the beheadings of 21 Egyptian Christians who had been kidnapped in Libya. Can you imagine the outcry if 21 Muslims had been beheaded by Christians? Where is the universal condemnation by Muslim leaders around the world? As we mourn with the families of those 21 martyrs, we’d better take this warning seriously as these acts of terror will only spread throughout Europe and the United States. If this concerns you like it does me, share this. The storm is coming.”
Recently, Graham also criticized the President for comparing the actions of ISIS to the crusades, that “happened over 1000 years ago.”
