Billy Graham says Bill Clinton would make an excellent evangelist. (Not to mention the Rev’s endorsement of Hil for Prez.)
Lord. Have. Mercy.
Read it H E R E.
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.”
More H E R E.
After reading the comments on Dawn’s site, I posted my own:
We are all sinners as is Rev Graham. But you know, saying that Bill Clinton — Bill Clinton! — would make a great Evangelist is just plain dumb. God help us! Maybe I’m wrong, but if Bill Clinton becomes an Evangelist, I’ll KNOW the day that Graham so often talks about has indeed drawn nigh. (Come to think of it, Mr Clinton has already helped convince me of that.)
I’ve just returned from a Diocesan event where, in a homily, a priest said that people don’t want the real Jesus. Rather, they want some sort of cosmic religious Barney.
I have tremendous respect for Billy Graham. On the way home from Atlanta, we were listening to the Crusade on his own radio station, WMIT. I was thinking, having gone to a couple of his crusades while a kid, that it would be good for my kids to hear this living legend (and neighbor) preach. I was saddened to have to turn it off. Other than proclaiming that if he died he would instantly be in Heaven in the presence of Jesus, I didn’t hear much of a message. It all seemed to be about himself.
At one of the Crusades in Charlotte, I must have been about 12, I started to go forward during the altar call. My mother chastised me saying, “We’re already saved”. But I wasn’t as interested in meeting the Man as I was in meeting the man. I, too, am guilty.
