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."

Army leaders were meeting Wednesday, and Col. Tom Collins said withdrawing the invitation "is on the table."

Graham, the son of famed evangelist Billy 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, Collins said.

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.
