The preacher to the Presidents, Billy Graham, now 93 years old, has come out with some surprising statements in the past few months. Recently, Mr. Graham quotes his late wife Ruth as saying, "If God doesn't punish America, He'll have to apologize to Sodom and Gomorrah." Mr. Graham goes on and says that since she made that remark millions of babies have been aborted and our nations seems largely unconcerned. "Self centered indulgence, pride and a lack of shame over sin are now emblems of the American lifestyle." Over the years Mr. Graham has stayed away from statements like this. Why such strong statements today? Mr. Graham gives his answer. "Because of the terrible downward spiral of our nation's moral standards and the idolatry of worshipping false gods such as technology and sex."
