Billy Graham back in hospital

Posted November 20, 2013

— The Rev. Billy Graham has been hospitalized with respiratory congestion, his spokesman said Wednesday.

Graham, who celebrated his 95th birthday earlier this month, was treated a few weeks ago for the same health problem.

"As was the case then, we expect he will be able to return home in a day or two,” spokesman Mark DeMoss said.

Graham was taken to Mission Health Hospital in Asheville.

    Samaritan's Purse was one of the first groups on the ground after the recent typhoon in the Philippines. Right behind them were other Christian churches and Christian denominations both large and small.

    Where is all that love and support from major Liberal groups like People for the American Way? (http://www.pfaw.org/) Is MoveOn.org there? How about ACORN. Go to their web sites! Not a word is mentioned of this disaster, much less trying to help out.

    When disaster strikes Christians and the United States military are the first ones to lend aid.

    "He's about to get justice for the snake oil he sold and got rich from."

    --If by "snake oil" you mean a personal relationship with Christ, which is what Mr. Graham preached, then sign me up for a truck load of the stuff!

    I'm not surprised by the negative comments here ...some people just feel threatened by Christianity.

    Yawn. No biggie here.

    Then why did you bother posting on this particular article?

    "I see more nasty comments made about Christ and religion today than I ever have in any other period of my life.."

    Christ has nothing to do with religion now LOVE & Salvation that is what Christ is all about, not religion. There is a BIG difference in Religion & Christ just saying..

    "But, usually such remarks are made by those who do not know Christ nor do they want to.."

    The same can be said about Christians.

    "You will also never, ever catch them saying anything negative about Islam."

    This is an out right lie. I know many on the left that have bad things to say about Islam since it is also a man made religon with extreme points of view.

    Sad, pathetic & telling the hate from the Left against anything & anyone tied to religion.

    The same lot that ironically advocates tolerance, albeit only to their point of view.

    You will also never, ever catch them saying anything negative about Islam.

    The paradox is laughable.
