OTOH, he had racially integrated revival meetings when that was an act of civil disobedience.

Graham was a cunt. And as Hitch noted of Falwell, give the cunt an enema and bury him in a shoe box.

And he invented those shitty crackers that he named after himself. He tried to convince parishioners that it was the "Scared Host". I think he thought he could sell then to all christian churches. Didn't work. He ended up getting a ghostwriter to conjure up recipes for pie crusts to cover his development costs. Cunt is right.

I thought Ed was full of shit but I looked up the Wiki entry on Graham crackers just to be sure. Turns out they were in fact inspired (not invented) by a preacher named Graham, just not that preacher named Graham.

There's a scene in the book, "The Boys on the Bus," describing Billy Graham, strutting in smiling with his suit jacket over his shoulder, after Nixon was elected, saying, "Well, we won that one!" and taking on glory, etc. The press guys were all "WTF?"

Anyway...

https://www.politico.com/magazine/story ... xon-217039
But of course the message wasn’t outside of politics at all: It was deeply political, even opportunistic, and, as we know now, factually dubious. It was later revealed that Nixon’s campaign was actually working to undermine a peace initiative.

It is one example of just how much “America’s pastor” was a staunch political ally of one particular American, Richard Nixon. At the 1969 inaugural, Graham delivered a prayer that read, in part: “We recognize, O Lord, that in Thy sovereignty Thou has permitted Richard Nixon to lead us at this momentous hour of our history”—a sentiment that sounded to some as if he was asserting that Nixon was God’s choice. His support for the war in Vietnam was so enthusiastic that on April 15,1969, after meeting with missionaries from Vietnam, Graham sent a memo to the White House urging that, if the peace talks in Paris failed, Nixon should bomb the dikes that held back floodwaters in the North. This, said Graham, “could overnight destroy the economy of North Vietnam.” It would also have destroyed countless villages, sending as many as a million civilians to their deaths.

He became even more instrumental to Nixon, moving well beyond spiritual counselor. In 1972, he peppered the White House with memos on everything from campaign strategy to stagecraft.

His most infamous “bonding” with Nixon happened in 1972, when a White House conversation turned to the subject of Jewish domination of the media. Nixon was a notorious anti-Semite—a fact that became clearer after the Watergate tapes—and Graham played to the president’s prejudices with enthusiasm. He called that alleged media control “a stranglehold,” mused about “doing something about it” in a second Nixon term, and added, “A lot of Jews are great friends of mine,’’ Graham said. ''They swarm around me and are friendly to me because they know that I am friendly to Israel and so forth. But they don't know how I really feel about what they're doing to this country, and I have no power and no way to handle them.''
Ta-ta.
