A week after questioning President Barack Obama’s Christian faith, maligned pastor Franklin Graham issued an apology for his controversial comments Tuesday afternoon, according to Religious News Service.

Graham, the son of renowned evangelical pastor Billy Graham, provided a statement of penitence after being criticized by the NAACP and a group of black religious leaders for his uncertainty in Obama’s faith.

“I regret any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president, Mr. Obama,” he said. “I apologize to him and to any I have offended for not better articulating my reason for not supporting him in this election — for his faith has nothing to do with my consideration of him as a candidate.”
