Franklin Graham has once again fallen victim to a boycott protest. This time, it is coming out of the United Kingdom. Graham is set to speak at an event in Blackpool, UK, next year, but residents are not happy. Graham holds traditional Christian views on gay marriage and has been supporting of President Donald Trump, two things that many in this seaside town are not happy about.
As it stands, the petition has gathered almost 2,000 signatures.
Earlier this year, a group of Christian leaders attempted to stop Franklin coming to Vancouver for an evangelism event.
"Franklin Graham's recent public comments compromise Jesus's mission of justice and love for all," a petition from Christian leaders read. "For instance, he has said that all Muslims should be banned from the United States because Islam is a 'very evil and wicked religion' at war with the Christian West."
