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. That stop, though, will no longer take place.
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."

The decision to cancel Graham's stop in Liverpool isn't surprising. Protesters have been rebuking the leaders of the venue for allowing Graham to share the gospel in the space.
