From an article on 5 Ways America Changed God: (http://religion.blogs.cnn.com/2014/09/06...?hpt=hp_c4)

"Amid the large and varied buffet, [Billy] Graham’s God was like a peanut butter-and-jelly sandwich, a divine brand delivered using books, television, radio, magazine publishing and live events.

In many ways, Graham was the first to unleash the power of GOD®. And that changed everything.

Today, most Christians can’t distinguish between God and GOD®, which has made America’s deity into a superpower, an almighty deity that can be mixed with just about anything, from enterprise to politics, from hate campaigns to promises of prosperity."

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

RE: Clever Description
I recall the first time I heard of Billy Graham. I was very young. My dad said something rude about him. He was rarely if ever rude about anyone so it stuck in my memory.

I think it might have been the first time I heard the term "snake oil".

Yes
