Reverend Franklin Graham, CEO of Samaritan's Purse and the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, recently expressed his furious reaction to the Islamic terrorists who killed the Pakistani Christians on Easter.

Last Sunday, the lives of over 70 Christians in Pakistan, mostly children and women, were lost in a suicide bombing by the Islamic group, Jamaat-ul-Ahrar, which is a breakaway Islamic Taliban faction. The terror attack happened in Gulshan-e-Iqbal Park where Christian families were peacefully celebrating the holiday.

In response to the atrocious attack, Graham took to Facebook and expressed his disappointment and anger toward the Islamic group. His Facebook post, published in his official page, elicited over 67 thousand reactions and was shared over 26 thousand times.

First, he asked his followers to pray for the departed souls of the victims in Pakistan. He then followed this with a very strong message directed to the Islamic terrorists.

"They want the whole world to bow to Islam — that won't happen," Graham wrote.

He then quoted Philippians 2:10-11 from the Bible, warning terrorists about the power of the Christian faith: "The Word of God tells us that one day 'at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.'"

According to the Blaze, this is not the first time that Graham directly attacked the religion. In another controversial Facebook post he published online last week, he rhetorically asked, "Why does Islam hate so much?"

He then answered his own question with, "It's because the Quran teaches its followers to hate."

Graham has been known to be a staunch critic of the Islamic religion. He has been very vocal in interviews and public statements about the supposed violence that comes along with being a Muslim.
