Graham Apologizes To Obama For Questioning His Religion

Last week, evangelist Franklin Graham questioned whether President Obama is a Christian. Graham said "Islam has gotten a free pass under Obama," and that the president seems more concerned about Muslims than "Christians that are being murdered in Muslim countries." Now, Graham has issued an apology, reports Religion News Service: "I regret any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president, Mr. Obama," he said in a statement. "I apologize to him and to any I have offended for not better articulating my reason for not supporting him in this election - for his faith has nothing to do with my consideration of him as a candidate."
