Billy Graham never got caught: diddling himself with a hooker; sexually abusing a pre-teen boy; stealing money from an elderly or disabled person; cheating on his taxes; or schtucking members of his congregation. From a televangelist perspective, that's pretty good.

^ Did Billy Graham do all of those things and more? I really don't know... who can say how many times he didn't get caught?

Was he sinless? Absolutely not; otherwise, why would he preach the need for salvation?

However, this may provide some insight as to how he avoided those baser scandals, because he recognized he could be as vulnerable as any man:

I would agree if money was his focus he would have been able to accumulate mass sums of wealth.

Is it wealth or our use of it that matters? He was not an extravagant spender and consumer of wealth for his personal benefit.

I see many on here are genuinely concerned about if Billy picked the correct religion and how that may correspond to where his fan mail gets forwarded to from now on. Glad to see such compassion and concern for the eternal rest of a good earthly citizen.

The guy wrote over 30 books, some selling many millions of copies, going back to the 50's. A little IBM stock here, a little AT&T there, some Standard Oil and DuPont....... It would not be difficult to become quite wealthy.

He used his personal wealth to bail out Martin Luther King in Birmingham in 1963. That had to be really popular in the early 60's South, huh ?

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Billy_Graham

He was pretty early on standing up against racial segregation, while engaged in an endeavor that revolved around attracting people to himself. Not exactly walking the line in trying to remain popular.

Quote:
During a 1953 rally in Chattanooga, Tennessee, Graham tore down the ropes that organizers had erected in order to segregate the audience into racial sections. In his memoirs, he recounted that he told two ushers to leave the barriers down "or you can go on and have the revival without me." He warned a white audience, "we have been proud and thought we were better than any other race, any other people. Ladies and gentlemen, we are going to stumble into hell because of our pride."

Seems like a decent guy. Why would people now question him? I am not a religious guy, but the fact that he was seems to rattle people. Especially Ep. How many boys has ep raped? How dumb of a question is that? And bluth and Ep answered it lol.

They don't really care much, I hope.

They are just trying to be outrageous. They've inspired me to take the time to read up a little. I had never paid much attention to Billy Graham. I like Graham better now, in part because e_p and ronnie are a_holes. Go figure

Bloof jumping in is pretty funny. He's usually above such base trolling. Religion triggers him, I guess.

I didnít say Graham raped anyone. I said I think he was greedy because he made a vast amount of money preaching about god and salvation to the fearing masses.

Did he ever charge to preach - even once, anywhere ?

I think it's fair to wonder how vastly Graham's private life/opinions differed from his public ones given he lied for decades about making anti-semitic comments to the President and only relented when the audio was produced.
