Graham, Guns, and Common Tongue

Billy Graham could thrive at a time Americans shared a common tongue.

The Rev. Billy Graham is now with his Creator. I suspect there will be no more men who can transcend the divides of this…

To the extent Graham’s death has elicited criticism and attack, much of it has to do with his common man approach. Some were left wanting. Others see a common man who garnered uncommon attention and think there must be something fraudulent about him. Elite opinion makers and leaders, often drawn to worldly comfort and not gospel suffering, have a hard time relating to Graham because they have a hard time relating to the common man.
