Bslim: ...and boy is HE gonna be disappointed.


If the atheists are right, he won't feel disappointment.  Then again, in the void, he won't feel a thing.

I hope for a peaceful passing. My grandfather says he is ready all the time and I hope he just goes without pain.


I don't condemn anyone rooting, being exciting or wishing death upon people. You're entitled to your own views. I just ask that you realize how hateful your remarks are. The same hate is what many have against sects of Christianity.

This man had a family. I am sure your families would be devastated if you lost your life. As far as money, BG obviously felt compelled to raise money for the good of others. I doubt he sat on a high percentage of donated funds. I don't know if someone raising a ton of funds and having a decent salary is wrong. If I sold more I would make more right?

Just sad to see the hate.

That's what I was thinking. Billy Graham has been a great man for as long as I remember. He leaves a beautiful legacy.

Piizzadude: Cerebral Knievel: While reading the article about the mans condition, I just couldn't help but think that when our pets get to such a state, we have them put down out of mercy from their suffering.

and yet, it is illegal to do it to humans


yep.. t'was my point. I don't want to ever be like that.. To "live everyday like it is your last" should not mean "wake up, make funeral arrangements, and wait"

As for Mr. Graham? I have no ill will towards him. He was a Teevee preacher man, an evangelical, but not the faces of evil that his contemporaries were in the 80's.

My life is awesome. I have a wonderful family, a job which makes a real difference in people's lives, and I don't scam them out of their life savings while convincing them that I'm the earthly word of Jesus Christ, and encouraging horrific acts out of people who are supposed to be "christ-like"


And suddenly, your life could NOT be so awesome. I hope that does not happen to you. But the hate for someone who has not ripped people off for his own benefit is disturbing. Keep on hating and don't let it kill ya. Hate can do that, ya know.

Franklin sure gets alot of press for his self and his not-for-profit foundation by attention whoring over his daddes health.  "My daddy is sick gais!, oh by the way, my name is Franklin, and i have this organization..."

He's going to loose a lot of steam once Billy goes..   Maybe Franklin could take a page from Joyce Meyer's one page book to financial wealth:  Lament over "Daddy touched me" stories while you hold one had out.

There's a corollary to that, and it regards the right, but it's more self-evident than ironic.

First, despite your internet claims to be such a paragon, I'm pretty sure that, if I dug into your life with half the eagerness of the Graham haters, you wouldn't come out smelling like roses.

Second, "scam" requires that Graham know that his message was not true. I have yet to see proof of that. As far as I can see, he sincerely believes what he told people, and did his best to be a good person as he understood it. So that's what it boils down to: you are wishing suffering and misery on someone because that someone was (in your eyes) incorrect. I hope that I never be that small, petty, and hateful.

I have a hate for a lot, if not most, of the evangelical fundies.

BG is not on that list.

I honestly believe he has led as best a life he could while using what he had and has to bring hope and joy to many.

A good man, with the same flaws as many, who has lived under a microscope and come out looking pretty much like he practices was he preaches.

I hope he finds what he is looking for on the other side, if there is one.
 
2014-01-18 04:53:35 PM
Wow. The Billy Graham hatred is pretty strong here and undeserved.

Did you all see the CBS report on tv evangelists? There's a reason Graham wasn't mentioned.

I don't remember him as being a huge scumbag either, although I really haven't thought about him in years. He was a preacher man, and of course he had some wacky religious ideas. Of course, the bar is extremely low here.
 
2014-01-18 05:35:34 PM
  Every time another one of these religionist bigots dies, my heart flutters.  Since I was a child, I have been pretty aware that religion is just a ruse to see how stupid people will believe anything if a guy in a collar or cloak tells them.  I have heard terrible things come out of people's mouths, said with a straight face, and expecting me to not tell them their position was shiat.  This asshole has been poisoning people for a long time.  Fark him in his ass with pineapples.

I hope the best for your grandfather. I know when my grandmother passed years ago she went peacefully. (Although she was apparently drugged out of her mind.) I know that when my time comes I don't want any pain. Ideally, I want to go in my sleep--I don't want to see that bastard Reaper coming for me.

I was going to post the old joke about going in my sleep, not screaming, but it seems a bit heartless.

BG and Pope Francis have SOME similarities. The biggest one is that they seem to live what they preach.

I may not agree with him on the beliefs of his denomination, but he is a good representative of the teachings of the Southern Baptists.   I think compared to others he stands a mile above the rest.

My disagreement is with the doctrine of his denomination, not with the man.  I hope he will be given a good job in the next life.

As deluded and distasteful as I generally find TV preachers (especially the scum of the scum, like Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Creflo Dollar, Jimmy Swaggart, Bob Tilton, Peter Popoff and their ilk), Billy Graham was probably the least offensive of the bunch. At least he seems to have genuinely believed in what he was saying, and meant the best for those who paid attention to him. I still disagree with him of course, but he could have done a whole lot worse.

Many terrible people throughout history have believed their message was true. That doesn't make them any less noble or worthy of praise for their actions.

It's not about him being "incorrect", because he wasn't even wrong to begin with. He is a frothing at the mouth, anti-semetic, anti-catholic, right-winged bigot who is the exemplary of the modern day evangelical pharisee.

Maybe he will find redemption in his last days of life, or renounce all the spectacular derp which he is well known for. I might have some respect for him then.

Yeah, that's always been my thought about him.  Having grown up in NC, and in a family that was BG, um, "fans", I've been familiar with him for pretty much my whole life.

No hate here.  No love either.  No more emotion about him dying soon than I had for The Professor or Reuben Kincaid.

macross87: uttertosh: brantgoose: He's been considered a bad man and a false Christian by many, but many of those critics and enemies are the sort of people you'd sooner have as enemies than as friends, so that is much of a muchness.

Nobody that I have ever met who think/speak ill of BG (for various reasons), are anyone I'd prefer as enemies. I, contrarily, think incredibly highly of these people and respect them personally, and professionally.

Regardless of which version of Christianity you read, all are against using the name of the lord in vain, and certainly have stuff to say about using the word of god to con people out of their monies.

It might be tolerated in America, but money-grabbing evangelicalism is rather frowned upon by the rest of the world.

lewismarktwo: but this guy wasn't evil.

According to the bible, yes. Yes he was. Actually, so evil that his soul will burn.

Curious. Do you even know God's name?


Yes, but then the stars would start going out, one by one.

Wow, the ignorance and bigotry that's on display in this thread is pretty amazing.  Sure he made some bone-headed blunders, but on the whole he was rather earnest in his faith and his attempts to make the world a better place.  Whether you agree with his faith or not, he's done nothing to deserve the hatred displayed in this thread.
 
2014-01-18 07:21:10 PM
You know, this is something to consider:

Clearly corrupt evangelist dudes like this guy obviously go through their lives only pretending to be religious, to make money, and also clearly would not do what they do if they actually believed what they espoused - that they would be punished for eternity for it.

So, clearly they are atheists.

Because it's a popularity contest. The more people you get to pray for you, the higher odds of getting what you want from God.
