The Rev. Franklin Graham argued Wednesday that progressive politicians, including President Obama and his outgoing attorney general, Eric Holder, are perpetuating an “anti-Christian bias” in government.

“There is an anti-Christian bias that is now in our government, has permeated our government, that’s also permeated Washington but [also] at the state and local level,” Mr. Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, said during an interview on “Washington Watch” with Tony Perkins, CNS News reported.

“It’s the progressives, whatever you want to call them, that are trying — and the president is into this and the attorney general is into this 100 percent — and that is, forcing on the American people a new morality,” Mr. Graham continued. “And it’s a morality that does not include God or His standards. That’s what we’re facing today.”

“It is an anti-Christ movement that we’re seeing taking place,” he added, CNS reported.

The reverend reportedly made his comments after discussing religious persecution committed by the Islamic State group.

Militants are “killing the Christians, beheading them, cutting their throats, telling them to convert to Islam or we’re going to shoot you,” he said. And the Obama administration doesn’t want to acknowledge that the Islamist group is motivated “by their radical beliefs,” he said, CNS reported.

“One of the problems we have, the president, his father was a Muslim and his stepfather was a Muslim — [he] lived in Indonesia and went to Muslim schools. His mother must have been a Muslim. We don’t know that but she married two Muslim men, so there must have been something there,” Mr. Graham explained, CNS reported.

“The framework that our president has growing up, his influences in his life were that of Islam,” he said. “My influences, growing up in this country as many in this country, were under the Christian influence and the biblical influence. But our president did not have that; it was Islam. Many feel that he’s protecting Islam. I don’t know that but it certainly seems that way.”
