I grew up in a family that has followed you on TV as well as have attended your services at the Asheville Civic Center for many years. You are such an awesome man of God.
God Bless you, and we wish you many more happy and peaceful days ahead.

I wish Reverend Graham a happy birthday. He is an honorable man and I was fortunate to hear him preach in my church when I was younger.

From what I know of Billy Graham, he stands for the love and peace of Jesus Christ. He doesn't condemn and hate like some of the extremist fundamentalists. For example, he has stated he has gay friends and, when questioned about gay marriage, he said “I don’t throw rocks at anybody,” he said.“That’s not my message. My message is the Gospel of Christ.”

Billy Graham lives the teachings of Jesus, including the teaching of not judging others. So, yes, happy birthday Billy Graham and thank you for your wisdom and your role model of a Christ-like life.

Well, I am a liberal, but not a godless atheist - the two don't necessarily go together. And while I don't 100% go along with everything Billy Graham says, I do have enormous respect for him and the work he has done. He is very genuine.

"come on now, all you liberal godless atheists cant be wishing mr. graham a happy birthday. he stands against all you are for. my goodness, talk about hypocrites."

Just because I don't embrace his theology doesn't mean I cannot respect and wish him well. That's not hypocritical, it's polite.

Happy Birthday Rev. Graham.

By the way, Rev. Graham is now and has always been a registered Democrat.
