Apparently American style Islamaphobia and homophobia is not welcome in the United Kingdom.

A planned UK tour by US evangelist Franklin Graham is in question after every venue booked by the preacher canceled planned appearances, following an outcry over his homophobic and Islamophobic comments.
Graham — the son of preacher Billy Graham — 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.
An arena in Newcastle upon Tyne became the seventh and final venue to cancel his scheduled appearance on Wednesday. The move follows similar decisions by venues in other British cities, including Birmingham, Liverpool and Sheffield.
Graham, one of the most high-profile speakers in the US, 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.
Graham has expressed support for conversion therapy and called homosexuality a sin and abomination. He called Islam a “wicked and evil” religion and falsely suggested former US President Barack Obama was “born a Muslim.”
In April Graham was also condemned for writing that Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg’s homosexuality is “something to be repentant of, not something to be flaunted, praised or politicized.”
“No room in the inn,” eh Graham?
Good for the UK for rejecting Franklin Graham’s poisonous form of Christianity.
I swear if Graham had been alive in the 1600s there is not doubt that he would be in charge of one type of inquisition or another.
The man has perverted his religion to reflect the darkness that dwells within him.
