Reverend Franklin Graham said he did not know whether President Barack Obama dislikes America, as “America’s Mayor” Rudy Giuliani stated last week, but Graham said it is true that Obama “defends Islam and chastises Christians,” denies the “religious freedoms” of those who oppose abortion and gay marriage, and added that our nation is “morally crumbling within” and that “we have turned our back on God.”

“Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani has taken a lot of heat from the media for his remark that he’s not sure if President Obama really loves America,” said Rev. Graham in a Feb. 24 Facebook post.

“I don’t know if that’s true or not, but I do know that the president defends Islam and chastises Christians, rebukes our allies and befriends our enemies, and fully supports gay marriages and abortion but denies the religious freedoms of those who don’t agree,” said the reverend, who oversees the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

“Our nation is ridiculed abroad and morally crumbling within,” he said.  “We are in trouble. We have turned our back on God.”

At a private dinner gathering on Feb. 18 at the 21 Club in New York City, Giuliani, a Republican, said “I do not believe, and I know this is a horrible thing to say, but I do not believe that the president loves America.”
