UK conference venue cancels Franklin Graham’s appearance: ‘We can’t allow hatred to go unchallenged’

That’s Trump’s buddy:

Evangelist Franklin Graham is currently scheduled to speak throughout the UK this summer, but thanks to statements he’s made disparaging LGBTQ people, there’s one place he definitely won’t be going: ACC Liverpool has canceled the engagement due to his history of statements, which ACC representatives said in a statement are “incompatible with our values.”

“Over the past few days we have been made aware of a number of statements which we consider to be incompatible with our values,” the statement read. “In light of this, we can no longer reconcile the balance between freedom of speech and the divisive impact this event is having in our city. We have informed the organizers of the event that the booking will no longer be fulfilled.”
