Gospel events hosted by Franklin Graham axed over biblical views on sexuality
Major British conference venues have cancelled bookings for Franklin Graham’s gospel events because of opposition to his views on homosexuality, but he says he is coming with a message of love.
Glasgow, Sheffield and Liverpool have all dropped the preacher, with some LGBT groups claiming his mainstream Christian stance on issues like same-sex marriage will prompt violence against gay people.
In response, the son of the late Billy Graham said: “I’m not coming to the UK to speak against anybody, I’m coming to speak for everybody.”
Franklin Graham has planned an eight-venue tour across Britain to speak about the good news of Jesus Christ between May and October.
