Franklin Graham went on Fox News with Greta Van Susteren and delivered the usual empty criticisms of President Obama, saying the exact same thing the president said but criticizing him for not saying it. Oh, and he gave an altar call for ISIS members to have their come-to-Jesus moment.
“I’m baffled by this White House,” Graham told Van Susteren on Tuesday night. “It seems they want to try to believe a lie — that everything’s OK when it’s not OK. What they (ISIS) did was evil, it was wrong, it was a sin against God,” Graham said of the recent beheadings of 21 Coptic Christians.
Yeah, that’s pretty much exactly what Obama says too. He called ISIS a “brutal, vicious death cult that, in the name of religion, carries out unspeakable acts of barbarism.” What more does he want?
However, Graham wanted to speak directly to members of the terrorist organization and offered them a simple message: “God loves you and God is willing to forgive you, but you’ve got to be willing to confess your sin to Him and ask Him for forgiveness and by faith invite His Son Jesus Christ into your heart. If you do that, God will forgive you for what you have done and God will heal your heart and He’ll invite you to be with Him for eternity in heaven.”
Thanks Franklin, I bet that’ll do the trick. I’m sure every member of ISIS that happened to be watching Fox News while you were on immediately converted to Christianity. The good news for them is they will have to change very little about their ideology, they can go right on hating women and gay people and members of other religions.
