Not too preachy at all

And in a counter balance to my previous post, I give you a man who gets where religion belongs in society.

Billy Graham is 86 and in poor health.  This weekend he is preaching in New York in what he says will be his last public appearance.

That's a shame.  Graham has devoted his life to spreading the word of God, and he has done it in a graceful and humble manner.  You'll never see Graham choosing sides.  He avoids political messages in his preaching.  That's not to say that he hasn't had an affect on politics; Graham has advised a multitude of presidents from both parties.

Especially today, when anyone with a political opinion seems to thrust religion into the forefront, gentleman like Graham are needed more than ever.  He understands that religion should be used to bring people together, not further divide them.
