"His vitals are good, but [he] just does not have strength,"

"I'm fine!"

"My father is ready to go to Heaven and whenever that day comes - he's ready,"

First Oral Roberts, now Billy Graham.

I used to have a  great ad pinned to the bulletin board.   Right after Oral said he needed $8MM in donations or God was going to call him home, a local pizza joint showed the owners holding a pizza and the bible saying that if they didn't sell a million pizzas God was going to call them home.

I see there is a generation of assholes here that know nothing about B.G., only what they remember about the hucksters of the 80's forward. I'm not religious AT ALL, but this man has not done any harm.

Please, dear lord. Please take Billy Graham in the night, alone and in fear. And please, dear lord, please let him evacuate his bowels into his pants the moment he does go.

And please, dear lord, take every other televangelist on the same cosmic short bus with you.

jmayson: Stone Meadow: If he "is ready to go to Heaven" and certain of his destination, why would he need any prayers?

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.


So, what I'm hearing is that he's an American Idol.

Nice to see that you're excited about someone's death as so to not interrupt you while changing channels.

I just remember a shop owner in my town putting up a sign that said "so long, Oral!"

Maybe that shop owner thought you were moving.....




Or he was getting married.

Billy Graham was a long way from the hard right fundamentalists. For one thing, he seems to have been capable of learning.

If you look at his record, it is mixed, but he seems to have been independant and willing and able to stand against the right as well as the left. He was eucumenical (at least in later years) and was called an Antichrist by some fundies because of it.

He was quite anti-Communist, for example, but moderated his views after visiting the Soviet Union. He was unconcerned by segregation in early years but met MLK Jr. and came to support Civil Rights. He opposed the election of the Roman Catholic, JFK, but seems to have joined many Protestants in accepting him after his Separation of Church and State speech.

Also, he refused to join the Moral Majority (which was, of course, neither moral nor a majority) and said that Jesus did not have a political party.

He supported Republican and Democratic Presidents alike.

In short, he was more of an old school evangelical Protestant Christian than a Fundamentalist. Like many Evangelicals today he was much more inclusive and less judgmental and bigoted than true Fundamentalists and right wingers.

He said (Wikipedia):

I think that everybody that loves or knows Christ, whether they are conscious of it or not, they are members of the body of Christ. . . . [God] is calling people out of the world for his name, whether they come from the Muslim world, or the Buddhist world or the non-believing world, they are members of the Body of Christ because they have been called by God. They may not know the name of Jesus but they know in their hearts that they need something they do not have, and they turn to the only light they have, and I think that they are saved and they are going to be with us in heaven.

In short, he lacked many of the "biblical certainties" of Fundamentalists.

He may have been antisemitic (or perhaps not). He was once caught out with secret millions in accounts, which he justified by saying that if the public had known about the monies he would have been besieged by charities angling for it. This annoyed me greatly at the time.

He has been accused of having an enormous ego and love of publicity and fame (by President Truman, no less).

All in all he seems to have been a sincere evangelical and largely a good man with some flaws, perhaps even tragic flaws. 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.

Personally I thought he was already dead, and that maybe this headline was about his son, Junior, but no, he's still alive. There's a picture of him with no ony MLK Jr., but Obama on Wikipedia. He retired but he isn't dead yet, at least no more so than Abe Vigoda.
