While the city of love was in rampant chaos following multiple terrorist attacks, many took to social media to call for change to prevent violence from coming closer.
Among them was evangelist Franklin Graham, who spoke up about the ramifications of immigration around the world.
"We cannot allow Muslim immigrants to come across our borders unchecked while we are fighting this war on terror. If we continue to allow Muslim immigration, we'll see much more of what happened in Paris—it's on our doorstep," Graham posted.
"France and Europe are being overrun by young Muslim men from the Middle East, and they do not know their backgrounds or their motives and intentions. Islam is not a peaceful religion as George W. Bush told us and as President Barack Obama has said—that is just not true," he continued. "Our president and our politicians in Washington need to wake up before it's too late. This is not the time to be politically correct. Our nation's security is at stake. The future of our children and grandchildren is at stake. We should not allow any political or religious group who want to destroy us and our way of life to immigrate to this country."
Graham blames hate and evil for the increased violence around the world.
In a separate Facebook post, Graham pointed that the attacks will not stop until people understand the power of prayer.
"My heart is still very heavy as I think about the 352 people injured and the 129 lives that were ended much too soon in Paris Friday night—all because of hearts filled with hate and evil," Graham posted. "There is only one who can change the human heart and that is God. The Bible tells us, "The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?" (Jeremiah 17:9). The good news for our world is that God can change any heart willing to turn to Him in true repentance and faith in His Son Jesus Christ. Prayers do make a real difference—so let's continue to let the people of France know that we support them and are praying for them during these difficult days."
