Muslim Groups Call For UK To Stop Famous Evangelical Preacher’s Visit

Muslim Groups Call For UK To Stop Famous Evangelical Preacher’s Visit
Leading Muslim organizations are calling on the U.K. to prevent a prominent Donald Trump–supporting American preacher from visiting the country to speak at an evangelistic rally.

Franklin Graham, who once called Islam a “very wicked and evil religion,” is planning to headline at the Lancashire Festival of Hope in Blackpool, England, this month. The three-day evangelistic rally, similar to the “crusades” once led by his father, Billy Graham, has for months received heated backlash from British pastors, politicians, queer activists and Muslims.
Anyone think the Home Office will refuse to grant him a visa?

Meanwhile, according to TheReligeonofPeace.com, The List of Killings in 2018 (so far), in the Name of Islam.

During this time period, there were 1405 Islamic attacks in 51 countries, in which 8355 people were killed and 8788 injured.

Sure seems like a "wicked and evil religion."

A clear cut case of them against them.

Two or three days of British food and he'll be on the next plane home.

So, are British toilets and food really that bad?

Worse than Islam?

The de facto official religion of the UK is Islam.

I'd say our American evangelist might as well be fixing to preach in Saudi Arabia or Iran, except that he already sort of speaks the language.

Lancashire Festival of Hope statement

The Lancashire Festival of Hope Leadership Team, which consists of church leaders from a variety of denominations across Lancashire, was astonished to learn of Blackpool Transport’s recent decision to remove Festival advertising from its bus fleet. This decision was made by Blackpool Transport without consultation with us, and we were not informed directly by them, or given a right of reply. We learned about it when it was posted on the Transport’s Press Summary.
[…]
The managing director of Blackpool Transport is quoted in the media as saying, “The removal of these adverts is a result of us listening and acting on customer and public feedback which we aim to do at all times.” Because the Christian community is also a customer, we hope Blackpool Transport will listen to our public feedback as well, and not show what appears to be a potential bias toward Christians. We have contacted Blackpool Transport and asked to meet with the Directors as a matter of urgency, to clarify their thinking in this matter.

Of course not. But it would be delicious irony.
