All seven of the venues in the United Kingdom scheduled to host Franklin Graham, son of the late Billy Graham, have been canceled because of the evangelist’s biblically based views on human sexuality and marriage.
“Pastor Graham peddles controversial, repulsive views about LGBT people which are in direct conflict with the values we hold dear in Newcastle,” Newcastle City Council leader Nick Forbes told the local Chronicle Live after the city’s Utilita Arena became the latest venue to cancel.
Previously, Graham events were canceled in Birmingham, Newport, Glasgow, Milton Keynes, Sheffield and Liverpool, according to a Pink News report cited by Breitbart News.
Graham said he still intends to tour the U.K.
