    He is a very dear man and despite his regrets, I'm grateful for his work for the kingdom.

    Nobody can say Rev. Graham hasn't made a great contribution to God's Kingdom.

    This part of the interview should speak to so many of our leaders. Politics is a tar-baby of secularism that will contaminate anyone who touches it. His honest reflection, of a man who achieved so much should give all of us a moment of reflection.

    You cannot change this world through the processes/politics of man. The only way we can change people is through the power of Christ.

    He is a great man. I wonder if he is referring to some of the supposed anti-semantic remarks he made to sitting presidents, I believe Nixon was one.

    Even though he might regret it, he went about it the right way by not picking sides. Instead, he was influential in lives all across the board.

    Politics and religion are two sides of the same coin. Can't have one without the other.

    When religion becomes involved with politics, politics does not become clean ... rather religion becomes soiled.

    Politics without religion gives you Marxism, the philosophy of the most brutal and bloody regimes the world has seen.

    Why am I not surprised that Crabby would be like a possum who found a blue berry patch and jump right in?
