Billy Graham is a Democrat

I didn't see this interview myself, but apparently Graham told a morning show ( The Today Show I think) that he is a Democrat, and many of you may have heard that Bill Clinton did the introduction for him during his stop in New York City this weekend.

I'm plugged into Christian news on several different levels, but I did not know this. I can just feel the shock waves travelling across the US among dyed-in-the-wool Christian Republicans. To them, it must be similar to Luke finding out Darth Vader is his father.

Billy Graham (and not just for being a Democrat)

Billy Graham is actually apolitical, at least in public. He used to make political statements but stopped this. He used to tell Jerry Falwell that he'd regret his political stuff and he should knock it off. He's done invocations at both political conventions and meetings for both parties. And yes, he did give us Franklin. Franklin's not all bad. Samaritan's Purse is a damn good charity.

Graham serves one party - God's.

More people's lives have been touched by Graham than we could ever know.

I wonder if Karl Rove will now tell Billy Graham that he is a traitor who hates America, like Rove insulted Democrats in his outburst the other day.

No stretch needed, Rove pretty much insulted all Democrats.

There are blogs on the internet filling up with comments on the matter from Democrat voting US military personnel.

Billy Graham's the man. I posted a link to a new music video about him that Bono did a spoken-word intro for in the Goal is Soul if you're interested.

NEW YORK - As his final American revival meeting continued Saturday, a fragile Billy Graham was met onstage by former President Clinton, who honored the evangelist, calling him "a man I love."

Clinton spoke briefly before Graham's sermon and recalled how the man known as America's pastor had refused to preach before a segregated audience in Arkansas decades ago when that state was in a bitter fight over school desegregation.

"I was just a little boy and I'll never forget it," said Clinton, who was joined by his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton. "I've loved him ever since. God bless you, friend."

Graham called the Clintons "wonderful friends" and "a great couple," quipping that the former president should become an evangelist and allow "his wife to run the country."

It's so fresh to see a man's faith come before his politics. You know?

Actually I think it's fresh to see a man be able to separate the two...

Speaking of his son.

I seen an interview on CNN with him. He is evil!

I was going to get the transcripts and post a thread, but no time.

He pretty much said that Islam and Muslims are evil. No Muslims are good, it was distrubing, I'll get the transcripts, very disheartening!
