To call him "the Reverend" is an insult to the true meaning and spirit of the word. Therefore, I'll only afford him "minister" Franklin Graham. If his father ever uttered such spiteful, devisive and hateful statements, I don't recall ever hearing them. and my grandmother & mother thought the Reverend Billy Graham was a dynamic, godly man. People restate the old proverb, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree", but I think this apple rolled down the hill and into a muddy bog.
I've tried not to think that there must be a big difference between Republican Christians and Christians of every other ethnicity. Statements like those that often come from the mouth (and heart) of Franklin Graham make it very hard.
