Duke University has canceled plans to use their campus’ iconic cathedral to issue the Muslim call to prayer. Plans were scrapped when Franklin Graham — whose father is Billy Graham — encouraged Duke alumni to withhold donations because of the planned public call to prayer, known as the adhan.
Graham’s concern was that Christianity was not being included in the Muslim call for prayer — or something equally ignorant — because everyone knows that someone else’s religious practice always threatens their own religious practice — or some notion equally ignorant.
This at a site that honors Confederate General Robert E. Lee, who was, history tells us, a fine man who backed a really, really, really bad idea.
Evidently, Christianity is such a teeny, tiny, small a religion it cannot allow the prayers of anyone but a card-carrying True Christian®.
For shame, Franklin. For. Shame.
