    They're interviewing JOEL OSTEEN on Billy Graham! That's like interviewing Pee Wee Herman on Superman, only worse! (Maybe interviewing Ma Barker about Sister Teresa?)

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.

  2. Amen mossrose, Jedidiah amen'd this post.

    Gah!

    Who's next? Benny Hinn?

    These charlatans like Joel want to associate themselves with his reputation. They figure he can't complain now that he is dead. Maybe Franklin will speak up.

    So far as I have ever known, he was a man of considerable personal integrity. In the judgment of some unbelievers, what he said on the Nixon tape was just inexcusable. That was not my judgment when I first about it, and I respect and fully accept his apology for it.

    I strongly disagree with the message he preached, but I will not demonize him or anyone else just for preaching it. He was apparently a good man, but good men can and do believe bad things.

    Franklin Graham is as big a charlatan as the rest of them, and his father didn't do bad in the business either.

    Would you just call every Christian evangelist a charlatan?

    That's just silly seer. I know that's what's you conservatives have been fed, and so believe, as if there were no wealthy liberals. But of course, this is about religion, not politics, and so the reason I have a problem with it is because it is unbiblical. In other words these preachers are a bunch of hypocrites, and sadly, their followers, fools.

    This is really inappropriate for this thread - there's an opinion thread elsewhere.
