  1. Billy Graham can blow me.

  2. For what it's worth, a friend of mine who used to work for Billy Graham's organization is passionate in his belief that the son, Franklin Graham, is exploiting his father's poor health and using him as a puppet to espouse the son's own intolerance. If true, it's a sad tragedy that a more coherent Billy Graham would surely condemn.

  3. Billy Graham - spends a small fortune for a full page WSJ advertisement. That small fortune (probably around $200K) could probably have fed THOUSANDS. So Christ-like. Jerk.

  4. Dear Billy,

    According to your Bible, eating lobster and shrimp are also abominations. Go suck one instead.

  5. Figures Mormon boy made out like a bandit on the auto bailout. Typical GOP lying 2 faced hypocrite. And as for Billy Graham, to hell with the religious right. In my youth I pissed off my mother when I refused to go back to Catechism class and be indoctrinated into the Cult of Catholicism.

  6. Why on Earth did you link to that tools website on the Texas couple. Matthew Shepard died a "quick death", really? Jeebus, he even spelled his name wrong.

  7. Billy Graham should now be old enough to understand that there is no God. He will never get what he wish.

  8. Graham Inc. is the best way to describe it. Of course, ads in the WSJ bleed them of money, so the more the better.

    A lot of people made a lot of money they shouldn't have from the auto bailout, and a lot of people lost money they shouldn't have, which is why an orderly bankruptcy for GM and Chrysler (a private company at the time) would have been best. At least then the bond holders would have had a say in the restructuring. GM's light truck division is very profitable and could easily have survived, along with most of Chevy. It's said that they could go under again within four years, and we'll be doing this all over again.

  9. I don't think Kris Jenkins even knew what the hell he was trying to say. Poor thing. Well, NFL players do get hit in head a lot. Concussions can be damaging, and sometimes they hurt. Po' thing.

  10. Franklin Graham -well known by his documented prejudices against gay people, Jewish people, people of color, etc. is the brains behind the WSJ ad-buy. He uses his father as a prop. Graham, Inc.
    couldn't have removed the Mormonism is a cult moniker before the past week---really--who did they think was going to run for the god-backed Republican party? Shamefull, un-Christian and un-American.

  11. When asked to join Jerry Falwell's Moral Majority, Billy Graham refused, saying "I'm for morality, but morality goes beyond sex to human freedom and social justice." Graham had worked with Martin Luther King, and prided himself on working with Presidents and politicians of both parties. Graham never entered the culture wars in the way men like Pat Robertson or Jerry Falwell did, and it seemed very clear back then that it was his choice to not make those things his major issues. It's difficult to imagine THAT Billy Graham taking out an ad like this.

    It's pretty blatantly clear that Franklin Graham is exploiting his father's dementia. I've reached the point where pretty much nothing these supposed "men of God" do could surprise me in its level of awfulness, but, seriously, waiting until your father is sick and dying and then using his image in a way that makes him a national face of bigotry and takes a dump all over his dad's reputation-- I mean, Franklin Graham must truly be trying to win a prize or something.

  12. The schmutz on Mars looks like iron pyrite to me. Oceans are one of the sources of iron pyrite, but not the only one.

  13. Billy Graham is a joke (Richard Nixon's great confidant).

    Yes, lets put our Christian hope in a man that follow's a horse thief's religion instead of that black fella with the funny name. As Mark Twain said; "I never wished a man dead, but have read many obituaries with great pleasure." Mr.Graham's is on my "Must read" list.

  15. Good for you, Ms. Anderson! It is about time those horse-drawn buggies are put on the trash heap and the horses who are forced to pull them and are subjected to daily cruelties and abuse can finally be freed.
