In an op-ed for USA Today, Franklin Graham exposed startling statistics about Muslims in America--answers from their own mouths. He shares that in a Pew Research report, 8 out of 100 Muslims in America said that violence against non-Muslims was okay. He writes, "Seven percent of Muslims in America told Pew researchers that violence against civilians is 'sometimes' justified in the name of Islam, and 1% said 'often.' Whoa! This means there are more than 100,000 Muslim adults living in this country who could justify a suicide bombing in the name of their religion."
Graham puts it this way: "Who would knowingly and willingly accept these odds of a peaceful existence in their own family, neighborhood, workplace or church? For example, would you feel safe accepting a job at a 'mostly peaceful' company of 100 employees if that meant only eight of them believed a suicide bombing was sometimes or often justified in the name of their religion (or in the name of anything, for that matter)? Would you stay at a hotel whose employees were 'mostly peaceful'? Would you trust your car to not explode randomly if a company who boasted its workers were mostly peaceful had made it? Imagine a marketing slogan: 'Trust us — we’re mostly peaceful.' And who would fly an airplane full of mostly peaceful passengers?"
Graham speaks out to point the finger at Obama and other liberals who want to do nothing about the obvious threat of Muslim extremists, even refusing to acknowledge them after terrorist attacks. Graham drives the point home by sharing: "Last year, the Islamic State terrorist group released an audio message by its leader and runner-up for Time magazine’s 2015 Person of the Year, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, speaking about his religion and peace. 'Islam was never a religion of peace,' the 44-year-old said. 'Islam is the religion of fighting. No one should believe that the war that we are waging is the war of the Islamic State. It is the war of all Muslims, but the Islamic State is spearheading it. It is the war of Muslims against infidels. Oh Muslims, go to war everywhere. It is the duty of every Muslim.'"
"Now, as a Christian, I’m sure glad that hundreds of millions of Muslims worldwide would reject this religious madman’s rant. It’s the millions who apparently agree with him who terrify me."
Wow, that is some startling information about Muslims. What do you think of Graham's words? Let us hear your thoughts in the Comments! Thank you!
