Billy Graham has been a very vocal supporter of the Pope and he has even said that he has no disagreements with Roman Catholic teachings. Unfortunately, he has been sharply criticized by many Protestants for this.

This is the first time I've heard this. If true, it is out of sync with biblical teachings.

"Billy Graham has been a very vocal supporter of the Pope and he has even said that he has no disagreements with Roman Catholic teachings. Unfortunately, he has been sharply criticized by many Protestants for this."

As JPII changed attitudes toward Jews, One of the things Billy has done is to spark a re-evaluation among Conservative Protestants of the Catholic Church. The Baptist church I grew up in during the 50's was very anti-Catholic ("whore of Rome" was a term I heard from the pulpit more than once). Today that same church is still very conservatively evangelical, but this kind of talk is no longer heard, and wouldn't be tolerated.

It's helped a lot that JPII frequently speaks openly of Jesus Christ in terms of personal faith (though most of us suffer near-total disconect with the continuing heavy Marian "Mother-of-God" emphasis).
