Regarding the Jan. 4 Focus article “Graham will try to rally the Christian conservative vote”: I have always been a Billy Graham fan, but Franklin Graham falls far below his father in his quest for righteousness.
If I were a member of the Samaritan’s Purse board, I would be asking if Franklin’s stated effort to visit all 50 states for involvement into the political arena fits into the Samaritan’s Purse mission – and whether his $822,000 salary could be better spent looking after fulfilling that mission.
Franklin wants to rally national political Christian support. Did I miss his efforts to urge the North Carolina legislature to provide for the 300,000 who were denied Medicaid assistance or the sick when they struck down the medical deduction? Or for the mentally ill in our jails instead of hospital beds?
Perhaps he could have asked those politicians to ask themselves before they voted, “What would Jesus do?”
