Alternet - President-elect Donald Trump has invited Rev. Franklin Graham, a notorious anti-Muslim, anti-LGBTQ campaigner, to deliver a prayer at his inauguration ceremony.... In an interview with CNN Newsroom in 2015, Graham proclaimed, “I think we should put a halt on immigration, because our borders are broken, until we have a proper system to vet people. I think [that applies to] all immigration, but especially those coming from the Middle East right now.”
That same year, Graham announced that the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association was withdrawing its accounts from Wells Fargo over the bank’s advertising campaign featuring a same-sex couple.
In one widely shared Facebook post published in 2015, Graham made the outrageous statement, “We are under attack by Muslims at home and abroad. We should stop all immigration of Muslims to the U.S. until this threat with Islam has been settled.”
