BGEA Responds as More UK Venues Cancel Franklin Graham: ‘We are Pursuing Actions Based on Religious Discrimination’
(Worthy News) – After facing discrimination in the UK because of his biblical beliefs, a spokesman for Franklin Graham tells CBN News they have decided to fight in court for their religious rights there.
“Since the original venues have broken our legal contract with them, we are pursuing appropriate actions based on grounds of religious discrimination and freedom of speech. The Gospel always faces opposition, so we will prayerfully and boldly continue to press forward so that the Good News of God’s love and forgiveness will be proclaimed in all of the cities we have planned to visit,” the Billy Graham Evangelistic Associaton (BGEA) spokesman told CBN News.
The statement comes after another city in the United Kingdom has rejected an appearance by Graham to preach the gospel because of his views on homosexuality. However, this has not deterred the evangelist who’s still looking forward to his eight-city tour of the country. [ Source: CBN News (Read More…) ]
