WASHINGTON (RNS) "I regret any comments I have ever made which may have cast any doubt on the personal faith of our president, Mr. Obama," evangelist Franklin Graham said.  "I apologize to him and to any I have offended for not better articulating my reason for not supporting him in this election."  By Adelle M. Banks.

    Franklin Graham is now acting like the politician he has always been, and that has nothing to do with religion, Christian or otherwise. His behavior is also a disgusting affront to the separation of church and state mandated by the First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States. We should question Graham’s own convenient “conversion” in time to take over his father’s political ministry. Big, big bucks involved in that business!

    The rotten fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree. As his father was an anti-semtic, bible banging, religious charlatan opportunist, so his son has picked up the torch.

    About the only thing that sets them apart is the youngers more open and obvious desire to make the US a theocracy.

    This is proof that the Grahams are no more than talking heads for the state. Never have you seen any graham stand up to the our faith and defend it. Our children are doomed and these fake preachers are part to blame. Billy was hand picked as America;s preacher for a reason and it was not for our good. Wake up people.

    people, please listen to the voices in your heart that the Lord gave…and appreciate that someone can still talk right through this sinful generations to repent. shame on those lives who say they are Christian who doesn’t know what is it about.
