What's the Update on Rev. Billy Graham?
March 19 2014 | lee martell

Posted on 03/19/2014 1:36:41 PM PDT by lee martell

Is Reverend Billy Graham still alive? I ask because a few weeks before last Christmas, his family began coming to the press with various leading remarks, such as "Daddy is preparing to move on". or Rev. Graham is okay with letting go". Then, nothing specific since then. At that time Mandela-Mania was still running rampant in the media, and the who' who of has beens were still making news by expressing their deep sorrow for the now dead Racist Communist. When all this was happening I said then that it would not surprise me if the Rev. Graham had already died, but a decision was made by the adult children to suppress that fact until later, when a Graham funeral would not conflict with the prior Seasonal commitments of his many, many associates and devotees. Then Christmas passed, then the year changed. Still nothing. Maybe the whole family is practicing patience, and has decided there will be no purposeful 'plug pulling' happening here.

So you figure they froze him until needed, or what?

I think he is alive but not well. There is no reason to hide his death and not even Billy can walk away from the inevitable, he’ll probably have a very large memorial service.

No, I can’t go fishing this weekend.

What? No. My freezer is full.

None of your business!

It’s just full, OK?

No, if this occurred, they may have had a quiet simple ceremony with the immediate family. This could be accomplished very easily. Many Undertakers would be honored to do this for Rev. Graham, and keep quiet about it. The family plans would be to hold a full Memorial Service at some later time, whenever they determined that should be.

Stay calm. The family will certainly make an announcement when he passes.

Why would they do this? Afraid the Westboro Baptist Church would show up and protest?

Actually, that’s not far from the truth, based on a prior event.

Don’t much care about this guy ever since he lovingly endorsed Hillary by saying she’d make a great president. I have no use for him for overlooking her incredible criminal past and sexual proclivities.

That I didn’t know about. Maybe he was only going by information that was public knowledge and cheery picked by Hillary’s press secretary. Some folks accept the surface image as the real one, expecting others to be as honest as they believe themselves to be. I recall those missing files, and the way she had Military men carrying her luggage and her big Gucci purse. She hated even having people wear the uniform in the White House, and was not quiet about at all quiet about it.

BILLY GRAHAM ENDORSES HILLARY CLINTON FOR PRESIDENT! by Dr. R. L. Hymers, Jr. Sunday, June 26, 2005 Speaking to thousands of people on the second night of his crusade in New York City, Billy Graham stood by the side of former President Bill Clinton and his wife, Hillary. Graham said “Mrs. Clinton might make a good President.” He called Bill Clinton and his wife “wonderful friends” and “a great couple.” Graham said that the former President “should become an evangelist and allow his wife to run the country.

Sorry, Pal.. He said these wonderful things about a monster . . . not I . . . I didn't wax affectionate for this woman . . . he did. Words have consequences, and what he said about this criminal is pathetic. It shows that he should think carefully before he starts to compliment the devil.

Billy Graham probably wouldn’t say anything bad about you.

you obviously don’t understand the life or ways of a true Christian..who walks the walk and says no EVIL..

I CAN’T STAND HILLARY AND I’LL BE FIRST IN LINE TO CREAM HER DAILY OVER KILLING FOUR AMERICANS AND DESTROYING THE LIVES OF THEIR FAMILIES...

BUT I will always admire and support Rev. Billy Graham..I’ve prayed with him and followed him since I was 10 years old..just maybe you, pal should take a moment and say a prayer..I just wish I could be stronger Christian, but I do feel hate and fear and anger, and sadness..but I will always respect REV. BILLY GRAHAM..

AND I BID YOU GOOD NIGHT..THIS OLD BODY IS WORN OUT...HUGS TOO.
