Bonnie Bleiweiss: Graham a disappointment

Regarding the Jan. 16 news article “ Duke reverses on Muslim prayer”: I was shocked by Franklin Graham’s remarks regarding Duke’s decision to allow Muslims to use the bell tower for the call to prayer.

I am a Jew. Does he believe that I, too, worship a “different” God from Christians like he states Muslims do? We all worship the God of Abraham. Does he preach that all Muslims are terrorists as he proclaimed?

We all have differing opinions as to whether the use of the bell tower is appropriate, but his remarks promote ignorance, bigotry and hatred. They are dangerous. I expected more from the son of the great Billy Graham.
