The Army says it's considering whether to rescind an invitation to evangelist Franklin Graham to appear at the Pentagon on the National Day of Prayer after a religious liberty group complained about his description of Islam as "evil."
Col. Tom Collins says Army leaders were meeting Wednesday and that withdrawing the invitation "is on the table."
Collins says Graham was invited by the Colorado-based National Day of Prayer Task Force, which works with the Pentagon chaplain's office on the prayer event.
A spokesman for the task force didn't immediately return a call.
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation raised the issue, saying Muslim employees at the Pentagon were offended by the invitation.
Graham is the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham.
