Franklin Graham just asked a tough question about Islam, and followed it up with a tough answer. If you want to know the answer to his question, look no further than the Quran itself. Check this out…
Evangelist Franklin Graham published a fiery rhetorical question about Islam on his Facebook page on Thursday — then promptly offered up an equally controversial response.
“Why does Islam hate so much?” he wrote. “It’s because the Quran teaches its followers to hate.”
And Graham wasn’t done there. The faith leader, who is the son of the Rev. Billy Graham and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, went on to say that “Jews, Christians and others are to be subdued so that Islam may ‘prevail over all religions.’”
In the op-ed he posted it reads:
Surah 9 is a command to disavow all treaties with polytheists and to subjugate Jews and Christians (9.29) so that Islam may “prevail over all religions” (9.33). It is fair to wonder whether any non-Muslims in the world are immune from being attacked, subdued or assimilated under this command. Muslims must fight, according to this final chapter of the Quran, and if they do not, then their faith is called into question and they are counted among the hypocrites (9.44-45). If they do fight, they are promised one of two rewards, either spoils of war or heaven through martyrdom. Allah has made a bargain with the mujahid who obeys: Kill or be killed in battle, and paradise awaits (9.111).
