A Keller pastor continues to push back against "Islamophobia" after making national news for standing up for Muslims when evangelist Franklin Graham said they should be stopped from immigrating to the U.S.
Pastor Bob Roberts Jr. of NorthWood Church in Keller works closely with Grand Imam Maulana Syed Muhammad Abdul Khabir Azad from the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan. The two also work with Father James Channan, director of the Peace Center of the Dominican Order in Lahore.
After gunman Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez killed five U.S. servicemen in attacks at two military installations in Chattanooga, Tenn., Graham wrote on Facebook that Muslim immigration to the U.S. should stop. Abdulazeez, 24, was born in Kuwait and raised in the U.S.
