IF YOU WONDER WHY CRIME HAS SOARED SINCE 1960, THE COMMENTS OF BILLY GRAHAM'S DAUGHTER BELOW
MAY PROVIDE SOME INSIGHT

     Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane Clayson asked her "How could God let something like this happen? (regarding the attacks on Sept. 11).  Anne Graham's response is excerpted below.

         
 She said:

           I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but for years, we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get out of our government and to get out of our lives.

          And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out.  How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if we demand He leave us alone?

          In light of recent events...terrorist attacks, school shootings, etc.,  I think it started when Madeline Murray O'Hare (she was murdered and her body found recently) complained she didn't want prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

        Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school; the Bible says thou shalt not kill, thou shalt not steal and love your neighbor as yourself.  And we said OK.

     
   Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why the world's going to hell. 

        
Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

         Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord, people think twice about sharing.

         Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace."

         Are you laughing?
