Graham Threatens To Sue UK Venue Over Cancellation

The Scotsman reports:

A controversial US preacher has threatened legal action against the 14,000-capacity SSE Hydro after a prayer meeting was cancelled due to homophobia and hate speech concerns. Franklin Graham was due to come to Glasgow in May as part of an eight day tour of the UK.

Graham said he would still be coming to Glasgow, and urged the Hydro to reconsider or find themselves in court. He also claimed that council and venue bosses were “discriminating against Christians.”

“Though this venue may be cancelled we have not pulled out of Glasgow – we’re coming. We do have options legally. We’ll certainly pursue those options. We would rather not do that. We don’t like having to do that. The other side talk about how tolerant they are and how inclusive they are, but they are the least tolerant, the least inclusive people in the UK.”
