"What a shameful, sad end to a ministry that started with such fire and promise."

You're right. It really was a shameful thing to do. If Billy Graham has lost a few of his marbles, you would at least THINK that his son, Franklin, might have steered dear old dad away from hosting these reprobates on "his" stage. What an utterly dreadful message that sent. What an embarrassing way to end his evangelizing career.

He should have quit while he was ahead, because I really believe that a lot of evangelicals are going to be very upset about this.

Thanks for your comments.

Another thing to keep in mind about BG is that he has been a confident to Demoncrats and Republicans. He really can't show his partiality. One thing I can assure you is that it is VERY unlikely that he voted for old Bill. It simply wouldn't fit within his Christian beliefs.

You're welcome.

I can't really ascribe it to his health. I started out, decades ago, a very enthusiastic Billy Graham fan. But as I've learned more about the compromises he's made, how he's muddled the Gospel, my estimation of him has plummeted, quite against my preferences and predilections.

See Evangelicalism Divided, by Iain Murray, for one sad and well-documented presentation. The book isn't at all only on Billy Graham, but on how evangelicalism came to be in the mess we're in today. Sadly, BG played a major role.

And I'm sure Mr. Graham has read James 3:1.
