President Obama‘s father was an atheist. Obama once said in a speech that his father “was born Muslim but as an adult became an atheist.”

His mother was Agnostic (though Obama once referred to her as a “witness for Secular Humanism“).

But if you listen to Franklin Graham, the conservative who propels himself using father Billy Graham‘s name, Obama doesn’t really understand the religious beliefs of his own parents.

Yesterday, as a guest on the Family Research Council’s “Washington Watch,” Graham told host Tony Perkins that Obama’s mother was probably a Muslim and that’s why he’s so hesitant to attack ISIS:

One of the problems we have [is that Obama’s] father was a Muslim, and his step-father was a Muslim. [He] lived in Indonesia and went to Muslim schools. His mother must have been a Muslim — we don’t know that, but she married two Muslim men, so there must have been something there. And the framework that our president has growing up, his influences in his life was that of Islam.
