Somebody else also heard it...

I was watching the Today show interview with Billy Graham when he said, among other things, that he had been a Democrat all his live. He felt a little sorry for the blue states, he said, but "they will come out of it." Another blog, new like mine, also made note of it:

Billy Graham Is a Democrat: "Rev. Graham says he may have preached his last sermon to a stadium congregation yesterday. He spoke of salvation and love to 300,000 of the faithful at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena from Thursday through Sunday. He probably has proclaimed his last altar call.

He did a lengthy interview this weekend with NBC's Brian Williams. A few moments ago, The Today Show ran a brief, provocative excerpt in which Mr. Williams asked for Rev. Graham's views on the Presidential election of 2004.

Eyes shining, the revered Rev. Graham firmly fired eight words that will reverberate around Christian evangelical circles for years to come.....

'I have been a Democrat all my life...'"


Heart, Soul and Humor is the weblog of one Debi White.
Never heard of her, but I plan to start reading what she has to say. We seem to have a lot in common.

Ah, that is an inspiration! A prominent American Christian, an icon, saying he has been a Democrat all his life. I wish he would have gone around the country saying that in July, August, September, and October, but oh well. Maybe this revelation will give more people some cause for consideration when they vote in the next presidential election.

I will also check out Debi's weblog. Thanks for posting this!
