Evangelist Franklin Graham doubled down on his immigration stance in the wake of the Paris attacks, proclaiming in a Facebook post that "Islam is not a peaceful religion" and that Muslim immigration cannot continue.

"We cannot allow Muslim immigrants to come across our borders unchecked while we are fighting this war on terror," Graham wrote on Facebook. "If we continue to allow Muslim immigration, we'll see much more of what happened in Paris — it’s on our doorstep."

He also defended that stance in a recent interview with The Church Boys podcast.

“By letting Muslims come into this country at this time [there's] the potential for some of these people to turn on this nation for our kindness and our gratitude and commit murder,” Graham said in an interview that was conducted at TheBlaze’s New York City newsroom this fall. “And it’s not just the murder of just one or two, but it could be a large event that could take the lives of many people.”
