    Franklin Graham doesn’t speak or think for me. His brand of Christianity is not my brand. He is more like Pat Robertson, Jerry Falwell, & Jim Baker. He is attempting to hijack Christianity like the other narrow minded individuals mentioned.

    I agree with the previous comment. It doesn’t embarrass me. He just embarrassed and discredited himself.

    I think Franklin Graham is an ignorant ass, or at least he sounds like one.

    So if you follow Franklin Graham’s logic, if Obama isn’t a Christian because of his family, then Santorum is a Communist since he is only one generation removed from his Italian Communist family. His father came here from Italy and the Italian family are STILL Communists.

    What Graham is trying to say is the fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree. Boy his father Billy never seemed to be that way.

    …and yet, his father is deified in NC. The elder advised several presidents. He’s on the Nixon tapes saying some very un-Christian things about Jews.

    Obama sat in the pews for 20 years listening to the vitriolic rantings of Jeremiah Wright, and said nary a word. What does that say about his religion ?

    Franklin is a modern business man and knows his audience. Because of his name and the history he represents we expect different but we’re not going to get that from him. Evidently his father, publicly, thought different of people but Franklin knows his target audience as well as any ad man.

    Today the church market is asking for validation of its hate toward others. Oh, and let’s not forget that state legislators, throughout the country, need to be validated by the church as to their actions toward people who are poor and other vulnerable populations.

    Franklin is just letting the free market show him the way.

    Just goes to show us – separation of Church and State is a necessity.
    Or, we would be required to worship they way dictators what.
    We must ban together to keep the Inquisition in the past.
