Franklin Graham sues for ‘religious discrimination’ after Scottish venue bans his tour

Franklin Graham’s organization is asking the Glasgow Sheriff Court to intervene and force a venue that canceled his scheduled appearance last month and allow him to appear anyway, according to a report from the Glasgow Times.

According to the evangelical preacher and the group named for his famous father, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association (BGEA), the cancellation by SEC Hydro amounts to “discrimination” against Christians.

The Times reports that the cancellation “came after anger towards Graham from his past comments made about gay rights and Islam, and his support for Donald Trump, despite the US President’s adultery,” and that the “SEC now has until February 27 to detail out to the courts why it cancelled the event.”

Read the full report over at the Glasgow Times.
