Franklin Graham To Sue UK Venues Over Cancellations

From the far-right Charisma News:

After facing discrimination in the U.K. because of his biblical beliefs, a spokesman for Franklin Graham tells CBN News that the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA) has have decided to fight in court for its 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 BGEA spokesman told CBN News.

The statement comes after another city in the U.K. 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.

Yesterday it was reported that seven UK venues have canceled on Graham. No venue had been booked for London, the eighth and final stop on the tour.
