O'Donnell Gives Franklin Graham a Big Spanking
Edited on Mon Apr-25-11 07:42 PM by rsmith6621


Graham says only God can judge whether or not a person is a Christian but Graham says President Obama ISN'T..... So Franklin Graham is GOD...


I love and respect his Father but I cant stand Franklin.

2. Graham said being a Christian only meant going to church to Obama. Then admitted only God knows
who is and who isn't a Christian.

So Graham's statement about Obama means that Graham is God.

3. I keep thinking I saw a video of Obama speaking of his conversion of faith
to Christianity. It had all of the requirements FG mention: a testament of belief that Christ is God's son sent to redeem mankind, and his acceptance of that.

4. The Dark Side of Rev. Billy Graham
I love and respect his Father?

The Dark Side of Rev. Billy Graham
A Prince of War Exposed

"The shepherd always tries to persuade the sheep that their interests and his own are the same."

- Stendhal

The propaganda machine of the Evangelical Christian Right will soon be in counter attack mode. One of its darling preachers is about to take it on the proverbial chin. The Rev. Billy Graham, who has created a multimillion dollar media empire, that a Rupert Murdock would envy, is the subject of a shocking expose' due out on Nov. 15, 2007. It's entitled, "The Prince of War: Billy Graham's Crusade for a Wholly Christian Empire." The author is Cecil Bothwell. He hails from Asheville, North Carolina and is an award winning investigative reporter. Bothwell's unflattering portrait of Rev. Graham shows him as a wily warmonger and a lackey for the Establishment. He describes Rev. Graham as a public figure who: "Undermined the Founders' skeptical Deism and sought to rebrand the U.S. as a Christian nation, its armies the rightful instruments of Christian crusade and empire."

Bothwell documents that there wasn't a war the U.S. was involved in that Rev. Graham couldn't bless. In fact, he reveals that during the horrific Vietnam conflict, (1959-75), he had urged the then-President, Richard M. Nixon, to bomb North Vietnam! In a 13-page letter, that Rev. Graham had forwarded to the White House in April, 1969, it was stated: "There are tens of thousands of North Vietnamese defectors to bomb and invade the North. Why should all the fighting be in the South?...Especially let them bomb the dikes which could over night destroy the economy of North Vietnam." Mr. Bothwell underscored that such a military action against the dikes, a huge complex of earthworks, would probably "kill a million people and wipe out an already poor nation's agricultural system" He added that the advice in Graham's transmittal "fell on receptive ears. Not longer after, Nixon moved the air war north and west."...

8. Graham didn't have the kindest words for Jews in those little private
conversations with Tricky Dicky, either...

5. WTF is that critter on top of Graham's head?
Is this a new trope of republiconism--fucked up toupees?

6. O'Donnell sure had a rogue's gallery on last night.
Grover Norquist, Franklin Graham, and video of Rush Limbaugh. It's actually getting hard to watch his show, the guests are so repellent.
