Franklin Graham Forced To Cancel Seven-City Tour After All Seven Venues Dropped Him

A planned seven-city UK tour by US evangelist Franklin Graham got derailed after every venue booked by the preacher canceled planned appearances, following an outcry over his homophobic and Islamophobic comments, CNN reports.

Graham, a fervent Donald Trump supporter, has called Islam “evil,” attacked laws increasing rights for transgender people, and told his followers that the legalization of same-sex marriage was orchestrated by Satan.

Now, every venue booked by Graham as part of a lengthy summer tour of the UK has told him not to come, according to the news network.

An arena in Newcastle upon Tyne became the seventh and final venue to cancel his scheduled appearance. The move follows similar decisions by venues in other British cities, including Birmingham, Liverpool and Sheffield.

Graham is the president of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and an outspoken supporter of US President Donald Trump, whose election he believes was enabled by God. Graham has spoken at multiple rallies held by Trump.

Though his tour is currently without a venue, Graham has said he will try to make arrangements at alternative sites.
