Evangelist Franklin Graham will no longer stand in complacency for President Barack Obama's apparent endorsement of Islam.  

In a Facebook post, Graham wrote

Mr. President, I read in the The New York Times today where you reportedly blasted Donald J. Trump for wanting to tighten the borders and accused him of painting a whole religion as violent.
A Muslim can murder 49 innocent people in a gay club, and you still defend the religion of Islam.
But a Christian who refuses to bake a homosexual's wedding cake endures prosecution, financial ruin, and nation-wide shaming because of their faith, and you stay silent!
What Omar Mateen did was following the teachings of the Koran. It is incomprehensible that you will not acknowledge the dangers of Islam's teachings in order to protect the American people under your watch. 

Obama called the horrific massacre a "hate crime" and an "act of terror" during his remarks. However, he also still calls Muslims American allies.

"Since before I was president, I've been clear about how extremist groups have perverted Islam to justify terrorism. As president, I have called on our Muslim friends and allies at home and around the world to work with us to reject this twisted interpretation of one of the world's great religions," Obama said in his remarks.  

Meanwhile, the president has said virtually nothing as Christians in the United States pay exorbitant fines for following Christ.  

Aaron and Melissa Klein of SweetCakes by Melissa were fined $135,000 for refusing to bake a cake for a gay wedding ceremony.
