I would just like to say thank you for your service and services.. If you never saw him you missed a wonderfully fulfilling experience. He was good for the nation and all in it.. He was known as America's Pastor.

R.I.P. indeed. A quality person and of the many popular evangelists, he was the one very real deal.

I've never liked televangelist, but my condolences to his friends and family. Although he was fortunate to have pretty long life 99 is nothing scoff at.

For God so Loved the World,

That he gave his One and Only Son,

That whoever believes in Him,

Shall not perish,

But have Eternal Life.

Meh I feel less inclined to say anything good about him, he once said he hated Jews and said AIDS was gods wrath for Homosexuality.

 

Sorry.

Though never a follower of evangelists (many are crooks I believe) or for that matter, religion, one adage I've adopted, especially on ones death, is:  if one has nothing good to say, it's best to say nothing at all.

Money excerpt:

Long-time TIME contributors Nancy Gibbs and Michael Duffy, co-authors of The Preacher and the Presidents: Billy Graham in the White House, say that Graham regularly insisted that his crusades be audited and made public to avoid any hint of scandal, and that Graham could have easily made far more money if he wanted. He was turning down million-dollar television and Hollywood offers half a century ago, Gibbs and Duffy wrote in TIME in 2007. He never built the Church of Billy Graham, and while he lived comfortably, his house is a modest place. If he had wanted to get rich, he could have been many, many times over.

He only did what God and the bible told him to do?? Because If God didn't tell him to say things like that then he was never Gods servant.

Well yes using god as a weapon isnt anything new, evil can be done in the name of god

The condemnation of homosexual's is what drove a lot of the gay community to suicide and expulsion from thier families.

I really feel he did a lot of harm, he was the symbol of bible belt conservatism
