The Rev. Franklin Graham, an evangelist and the son of the late preacher Billy Graham, was slated to speak this summer at a venue in Liverpool. The venue, however, put a wrench into the plans by canceling the contract.
Graham’s event, to be held at ACC Liverpool, was part of a larger tour through the United Kingdom. Officials at the venue, however, announced Friday the event would be scrubbed from the schedule because Graham’s views — particularly his biblical interpretation of marriage as a union between one man and one woman — are “incompatible with our values.”
Thankfully, for all those who planned on attending in Liverpool, The Graham Tour UK organizers told Faithwire they are still planning on holding the event in the city, though a new venue has yet to be determined.
