Franklin Graham condemns Musim prayer service at National Cathedral

The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. hosted its first Muslim prayer service last week and Evangelist Franklin Graham joined the outcry from critics, condemning the move.
“It’s sad to see a church open its doors to the worship of anything other than the One True God of the Bible who sent His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, to earth to save us from our sins. Jesus was clear when He said, ‘I am the way the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me’ (John 14:6).” 
The Muslim service was planned by South African ambassador to the United States Ebrahim Rasool and National Cathedral’s Rev. Canon Gina Campbell as a symbol of unity and religious freedom. Rasool spoke against the actions of jihadists during the service. “They invade lands, behead journalists, execute civilians and declare war on anyone different to them,” he said.
While this was a closed event (invite only) there was a woman protesting “Get out of our church. Why can’t you worship in your mosque?” Jesus Christ is on that cross over there,” she yelled. “Get out of our church. Leave our church alone.” The protester was removed from the prayer service by officials and was not harmed or arrested. 
Graham, son of Billy Graham, is also the CEO of nonprofit Samaritan’s Purse.
