Hate-filled “televangelist” and noted scam artist Franklin Graham was hoping to embark on a speaking tour at church venues across the United Kingdom later this year, but one by one those venues are canceling his appearances as word spreads about his hate-filled anti-LGBTQ rhetoric.
At first, venues in Liverpool and London canceled Graham’s appearances, and now arenas in Glasgow, Sheffield, Birmingham, and Newport have also been dropped. Another event in Milton Keynes is set to drop him as well.
A spokesperson for the Birmingham venue confirmed that Graham’s June 17 appearance has been canceled and the ICC Wales event in Newport, originally scheduled for June 14, has also been canceled.
“Opposition to this event has come from numerous sources, and from across the community” a spokesperson for ICC Wales noted.
