President and CEO of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, Rev. Franklin Graham either completely slept through 2008 (when we all learned exhaustively about President Obama's upbringing), or is suffering from a grave lapse in memory. According to Talking Points Memo, the evangelical Reverend told the Family Research Council that Obama's unwillingness to be more hawkish on ISIS has something or other to do with having been raised by a muslim mother. Ann Dunham, President Obama's mom was - for the fucking zillionth time - a practicing Christian.
"His mother must have been a Muslim," said Graham. "We don't know that, but she married two Muslim men, so there must have been something there."
The Wikipedia entry on Ann Dunham cites her as a Christian 6 times and includes a quote from the president on his Christian mother's Christian impact on his Christianity:
My father was from Kenya and a lot of people in his village were Muslim. He didn't practice Islam. Truth is he wasn't very religious. He met my mother. My mother was a Christian from Kansas, and they married and then divorced. I was raised by my mother. So, I've always been a Christian. The only connection I've had to Islam is that my grandfather on my father's side came from that country. But I've never practiced Islam
Despite cold hard facts Graham continued the lalalalalala Islam narrative. "Our President did not have that. It was Islam. And many feel that he's protecting Islam," he said. "I don't know that, but it certainly seems that way."
