    Always has to be some bashers for Rev. Graham.

  • Grand Union Nov 9, 10:46 a.m.

    "Rev Graham, you've set the example for all Christians for years."

    Yeah by making himself and his family fabulously wealthy by conning the gullible....and breaking the law by still paying himself a salary of hundreds of thousand of dollars a year long after ceasing to do any real work for his "charity". Pity no DA in NC has enough spine to charge him.

    Happy Birthday Rev. Graham. I believe you've had a wonderful life, and countless numbers of people all over our world will have a wonderful afterlife because you led them to Jesus Christ.

    Happy birthday Billy Graham, get Obama in and help his thinking. After his reelection he did not even thank GOD in his speech. Never thanks GOD for anything

    Corey3rd-and you are perfect?? Hummmm?? I thought so!!

    Rev Graham, you've set the example for all Christians for years. God bless you. Many more happy returns.

  • Skywatch_NC Nov 8, 3:58 p.m.

    Does he know who's president? Has Franklin told him?

    I'm sure Rev. Graham knows. He met with Obama during his first term and probably will during his second term, too.

    Billy Graham has spent decades calling Mormonism a cult and the Book of Mormon fictional. But somehow he's able to overcome all of that in a few minutes with Mitt? And spends a fortune in donations on full page newspaper ads to "support" a cultist?

    Bless his HEART.

    What a great man of God. I am just so sorry that he has had to live through the most liberal President in US History. native2NC.

    You mean you wish he had died 4 years ago? That's not nice.

    Way to go twisting things.

  • Made In USA Nov 8, 2:01 p.m.

    Billy Graham is one of the most respected and most flawless minister of modern man. I must add that I appreciate the fact that WRAL has always had good things to say about him. This is unlike the News & Observer where just recently I read a commentary saying terrible things about him. That N & O story put an end to me ever buying another one of their papers.

  • LordHelpUsAll Nov 8, 1:58 p.m.

    HAPPY HAPPY HAPPY! How blessed we all have been to have God choose you to deliver His word to the world. Thank you for not turning down His call. Many blessings to you. Have a wonderful day with your family and friends.

    He is a good man. I wish he wasn't so wrong about us who are kind, gentle, honest and caring gay citizens of this country.

    Happy birthday to Billy Graham. Did he really say what he's quoted as saying about Romney, or was it a quote relayed through a spokesperson? Neither this article nor the one right after the meeting makes that clear. The only video I saw from the meeting had Romney speaking and not Graham on the audio feed.

  • this is my Screen Name Nov 8, 12:54 p.m.

    God bless you, Rev. Graham, for the years you have given to God and His calling. Happy Birthday!

  • Damien Thorne Nov 8, 12:48 p.m.

    Happy Birthday Mr. Graham. I applaud you for your selfless dedication to what you believe, and for the people you have helped. I know that much of it you would never talk about, and for that I applaud your humility.

    I know that many people will pass down the kindness that you have shown to others and I thank you for that especially.

    Happy Birthday Rev. Graham.

    Those of us that have followed you for years are aware of what is happening, but I still believe you were the person I heard speak back in the 70's.
