Billy Graham Dead
Well.............................what can one say?

He was 99. There is that.

Not sure if history will see him as a force for good.

The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike

RE: Billy Graham Dead
Actually Billy Graham is not so bad.
He was the guy who payed the bail for MLK when he was jailed.
He was very different from guys like Falwell.

RE: Billy Graham Dead
When I look at Graham's kids, my only thought is "the apple fell really far from the tree" given, while he had a blind spot a mile wide politically (thinking Nixon was a good hearted Christian who would never ever be involved in the Watergate affair), he definitely wasn't one of these ultra-conservative "culture warriors" like his son whose head is permanently so far up Trump's butt that he's checking for colon polyps or his daughter, who not long ago was railing about how the U.S. deserves to be nuked as God's judgment.

I think on the whole, Billy will be remembered mostly well in general. He'll be practically sainted by Evangelicals (and already is, given he's the one who came up with the modern "Sinner's Prayer").

Need to think of a witty signature.

For a second there, I thought this was about wrestler Superstar Billy Graham, (even though I don't know why that'd be World News), so that's a minor relief.

Who was this Billy Graham?

Preacher. Pretty much known as kind of "America's Pastor".

I would say he now knows what he believed was bullshit but since he ceased to exist I guess he wouldn't have any way to know what he believed was bullshit.

It's probably mean-spirited, but I can't really shed a tear for one of the greatest hypocritical, religious bigots of the modern era.

What shits me is that he'll never know that his cherished beliefs were unequivocally wrong for 99 years LOL.

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.

That you need to ask is welcome proof religion is in decline. Sooner than we think someone will honestly ask "Who was this pope?"

RE: Billy Graham Dead
Another religious leader who traded morality for celebrity. And, of course, profited tremendously from that bargain, as is so often the case.
