Eric Franklin Graham is here and he's calling -- President Obama to give -- a back up why.
Reverend Graham is the honorary chairman of the 2010 national day of prayer task force.
The reverend wasn't -- to lead an event to -- the Pentagon invitation was -- how are because of comments reverend Graham made about Islam that the army calls not appropriate.
Reverend Graham says if -- Obama does not intervene on his behalf it will be a slap in the face of all Christians.
-- Graham joins us live set up proper recitation of where we stand on this problem.
Yeah absolutely are first of all let me just say -- there's a judge in Wisconsin that said the national prayer prayer she ruled that it was unconstitutional.
And the president has appealed so appreciate what the president has done all that he's also given proclamation.
Which you signed -- -- support in the national -- of prayer which we're very grateful for.
And it's just unfortunate that this decision was made by the Pentagon.
Good do the Muslims have their holidays that they celebrated depending on the assembly of -- celebrate Ramadan who have prayer services there.
But for us Christians.
To have a purse or present for them to objective of the army to give -- to their objections is something I just don't understand.
What you recently -- the president visited -- your father and you were there did you have any discussion of the present -- say you know what about this.
I did just loves to I want the president understands about wasn't sure -- -- And so I -- with the present what I had said after 9/11 but I've also been to the Pentagon.
Twice before 9/11 and once after nine elevenths I -- for the US military chaplains all over the country.
Various military bases them.
I asked if he could look into the possibility of having that invitation -- it.
Have you heard look at the schedule late.
I'm printing copying residents get no nothing not a word you said he would look into.
Does look like -- -- -- a new look like too deep into it.
What -- the country what you know what is it that you said that has set people off.
Well for first of all Greta I said that Islam after 9911 that -- -- wicked and evil.
I don't believe that Mohammed can lead anybody to god.
I believe that Jesus Christ is the way the truth -- life -- believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins.
That he was very far sends a gun raised and the life -- if -- politically except that I believe -- I think they've got wolf we'll forgive us and heal hearts.
The Muslims don't agree with me I don't agree with them.
And -- get along fine with with Muslims so we we have ministry all over the world -- Muslim countries.
President Bashir of Sudan walk over to his office he knows what I said you know what I believe -- this country -- how customers can remove -- lot of work in this country.
Muslims understand that they they don't agree with me I don't agree with them.
What they don't like and what offends them is when the military sends to Afghanistan.
Like the Dallas cowboy cheerleaders scantily clad.
Rock stars -- go over there that aren't dressed properly this is offensive to Muslims.
This is what they hate.
But for me as as a religious person to say -- -- disagree with your religion and I don't like it.
I don't like what Muslims do to -- and this is a big issue for me is how they treat women and this this to -- is just this is -- what they do.
Is Sydney we use of the word evil mean that is that what set set them on fire about this tape.
That may set them all fired dozens the Muslims -- -- I guess I guess it isn't the extremists is that all we're talking about of course I -- Another they're that there are there but it's also have to look at the religion what they teach.
What what the Koran actually Jesus says you cannot take a Christian to be your friend you cannot take -- -- to be your friend.
And if you are do if Greta if you were a Muslim and you want to could not convert to christianity Judaism.
If you did not repent and turn back to Islam your family would kill you.
And this is a real problem was all the little girl who -- who went to Florida not long ago.
Who had come been converted to christianity issues afraid her father was gonna -- -- you have these kind of are -- -- -- take.
Place is and you heard from the Pentagon now since since -- -- posted yes -- -- -- there and let what did they say well they have to say what have been pulled aside.
And given her the president gnome but to why you are going to be participating I'm going to the Pentagon tomorrow.

For the men and women have -- this measure hoo I'm so proud of my son and I just fourth deployment I just ask you I -- -- -- fourth deployment to Afghanistan yes.
