    Billy Graham Passes

    Not a fan, but obviously an influential person for a long time.

    The GREAT Billy Graham is dead. There was nobody like him! He will be missed by Christians and all religions. A very special man.

    For the record, I don't follow Trump on Twitter.

    I have no clue who that is

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I mean, he was pretty damn antisemitic, so I doubt the Jews will miss him!

    No he wasn't, obviously he said a dumb thing or whatever in that area but was far from being antisemitic. I would also like to point out that he was quite a powerful voice in support of Martin Luther King and being anti-segregation.

    Dont have to believe or agree with his faith but he was a great man and was one of the last few greats out there that completely devoted their life to helping others to the extent that he did.

    You're tempting me! Don't suck me in! I wrote a paper on him and the rise of the modern televangelist at my Catholic college so I have many opinions! But I won't share them because "if you have nothing nice to say, don't say anything nice at all"

    He lived a long and influential life and people freaking loved him. So, good for him.

    (Oh, and I disagree with the "he didn't play politics". He pounced on every chance to make that appear to be the case, but he was hugely political.)

    Rev. Graham was the unofficial Pope of the Protestants. We need a new one. RIP

    Don't do it! They can't handle the truth!

    EDIT: Very influential person no doubt, no matter where you stand religiously or politically. He'll be missed by many.
