Franklin Graham does not sin. stating the obvious, although the fragility of black family life goes back to slavery day by the 1960″s the negro family life was similar or aspiring so to mainstream north americans, automation and economic dislocation has conspired against the working poor of all races plus corporate greed and government waste and irresponcibility with lack of moral fibre but more welfare, more drugs and alcahol to dull the pain of living or sexual anarchy or abortion/infanticide are going to solve these problems Righteousness exalteth a nation, sin is a reproach to any people, only a national revival, repentance and renewed faith can save or restore america, sin has reached critical mass there

I read the letter. It is condesending and superficial in my opinion. Sorta like I forgive you, but youare an idiot, if you just had MY INSIGHT how much better you would be. Then you say: We don’t expect you to be an expert, but insinuate, ‘ you should be. etc.’ You could give Pentecost a bad name. Sorry, but that is how it seems to me.. Does every note, entry that goes against your personal feeling deserve to be addressed or just some of the high profile folk who are doing the work of the Lord.
