    I'm not big on fundamentalist preachers. But I did find Graham more tolerable to listen to than many of those who came later.

    Faith. It has nothing to do with religion. Billy graham kept his faith, largely based on power and money. Wherever men had those, you could find a graham or falwell.

    @Steve C. Warren "....Right up there with Joel Osteen and some of our great LDS speakers such as . . . well, let me think about it."

    I'll answer for you: Jeffery R. Holland, Dieter F. Uchtdorf

    @Steve Warren;

    Paul Dunn and Legrand Richards were both good speakers; always fun to hear. The modern Mormon Monotone though, it puts listeners to sleep though.

    He is on shaky ground when he ventures into the political arena, but I like Billy Graham and think he's a good man.

    I was glad to read in the article: "Graham’s willingness to associate with liberal mainline Protestants led to a break with Christian fundamentalists." Any break with the fundamentalists is a good thing because they tend to be whack jobs.

    In the company of a friend, I saw Billy Graham speak at Sun Devil Stadium around 1974. Great speaker. Right up there with Joel Osteen and some of our great LDS speakers such as . . . well, let me think about it.
