It’s comforting to know that some people and things never change.
Like the Rev. Billy Graham.
Ah yes, the Rev. Graham. He was a phony 50 years ago – the columnist Chuck Stone back then called him not just a phony but a “magnificent phony” – and he’s a phony today.
For decades the Rev. Graham sat mutely on the sidelines as great events unfolded and tumult roiled the earth – or else he just mouthed pious platitudes that benefited no one. How could a man with Graham’s pulpit just sit out the civil rights movement and the Vietnam War with scarcely a peep?
He did, bless his heart, express revulsion when – get this – tapes revealed that President Richard Nixon had a potty mouth in private.
