    Country singer Daryl Singletary. Sounds like it was a heart attack.

    Sorry that I have zero respect for those who use religion to enrich themselves and family, on top of them using that wealth to influence politics in way that separation of church and state is supposed to protect us from. He’s no better than those scummy evangelicals that run mega churches.

    No. He was the one who didn't. The Falwells and Robertsons out there who followed were pretty much always opposed by Graham. His *son's* a tool, and has done a ton in his father's name, when Billy was in dottage and likely not of sound mind in his later years. I mean, he televangelized, but it was about evangelism, not raising money. His son... yeah, Franklin seems all about the money. Graham wasn't poor, but his money came from movies and book sales; and the vast majority of what he brought in went out to the poor.

    He was one of the first major white leaders to join the Civil Rights movement, and recognized early on that he should have been not just part of the movement but a leader in it much earlier-- and he called on other Christians to that same repentance and work to undo the harm their apathy and indifference had allowed and encouraged. He was never a prosperity preacher like Osteen.

    He distanced himself from Robertson and Falwell. He called for attention to AIDS early on. He distanced himself from sexual sins being somehow uniquely awful, and called on a focus on humanity, and confronting poverty.

    He was staunchly anti-communist, but also later recognized his over-zeal and called for unity and healing.

    He did belief that things would be better if wives were at home; to the best of my knowledge, though, he never opposed their right not to. In 2012, he was in the headlines because of a full page add calling against same-sex marriage, but given how extraordinarily that meshed with Franklin's preaching and went against his own, most folks who know him suggested that Franklin was doing it in his dad's name, without his dad's knowledge... by the time that happened, Billy Graham had been dealing with Parkinson's for more than 20 years, had been out of the spotlight for 7 years, and was most likely entirely senile.

    I've got a lot of problems with Franklin Graham. His message has been divisive, political, judgmental, condemning. He's been paying himself close to a million dollars a year since he took over his dad's charities; Graham lived on 150k/year, including his enormous travel expenses. There's a lot of melding of the two, but Franklin Graham isn't even a shadow of his father's work.
