I haven't see the Grahams on tv in a long time. Why don't they ask their father and mother where they want to be buried? You'd think they would have already made these decisions and it would be in writing.
Should be a humble place for a humble man. A gravesite at his log cabin would be more appropriate.
I hope my sons don't read this. It might give them ideas.
They'll probably want to bury me across the road from Big Al's Gentlemen's Club so they can kill two birds with one stone when they visit.
I think a nice plot with a small headstone would be a better testament to their faith then this sideshow attraction.
I have come to respect him less over the years. First it was the comment that there was religious freedom in the USSR, then statements (memory a bit hazy here) about all religions being the same. There was a Reader's Digest article lately that had a picture of him with a glow around his head, as if he was divine. I thought it was in poor taste, so I tore it out and threw it away.
I like Franklin Graham. Before I believe what is written in the Washington Post, using unnamed sources, I would want to know more about what is happening. Media sources have it out for Franklin because of his Operation Christmas Child and his audacity to help out other areas of the world for Christ. I'm not saying this isn't true because I don't know. But I certainly don't trust what the WP has to say without knowing the story from a more credible source.
My preference... cremation and scatter my ashes. That which is important has either already left or has been left behind. This husk is of little more use.
Excuse me but why don't they just ask him where he wants to be buried??? I guess that's too easy.
What a travesty to build such a Disney-like complex and then hope to bury someone, anyone there, let alone this humble, religious, southern couple.
Decades ago I went to see Billy Graham out of curiousity when he came to Chicago at some amphitheater or other. Enormous crowd. I'll never forget the evening.
He was at the height of his powers and charisma at the time. It was quite an experience as anyone who saw him at that time can testify. He could blow just about anyone away with his preaching. The total impact of the music, the singing, the coming forward, his great voice, the emotion.....the impact was unreal.
He had the gift, that's for sure. I'm glad I went to see him. He touched people of any religion, even those who had none.
Still addicted to the MSM.
On my deathbed if they ask me where I want to be buried I'm going to tell them to suprise me.
Ruth Graham does not want to be buried there. Her son should raze the barn to ground if that's what it takes to make his mom happy.
