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.”
