Scoffing at Jesus



More we're-the-victims-here talk from the religious right. Politics Daily reporter David Gibson has an interesting column on remarks made by Rev. Franklin Graham, son of Billy, in a speech at John Brown University, in Siloam Springs, on Tuesday. Graham spoke about the memorial service for the victims of the shooting in Tuscon, and expressed his displeasure that it was not as explicitly religious as services following the Oklahoma City bombing and the 9/11 attacks.

"There was no call for God to put His loving arms around those who were hurting," Graham said. "Why did they leave him out? They scoff at the name of Jesus Christ."

Graham went on to say that the scoffing and persecution against Christians is only going to get worse, the Post reported...

"Even in our government today, you can't pray to Jesus in many public meetings. You can pray to God or a god. You can mention Buddha or the name of Muhammad, but you can't pray to Jesus Christ," Graham told the students.
