Obviously the above isn't suprising since Billy Graham (father of Franklin) had his prejudices (anti-Semitism being one--such as this conversation with then-President Richard Nixon in 1972: http://www.rense.com/general20/billy.htm).
Also remembering Franklin Graham's appearance at the funeral for the high-school students
murdered at Columbine eleven years ago. Not much compassion shown--instead Franklin regarded it as another evangelistic opportunity whistle-stop.
[UPDATE 4/26/10: The timing of this seems like a "get-Franklin-out-of-the-secular-news-cycle" moment: http://www.politicsdaily.com/2010/04/25/obama-pays-his-first-visit-to-billy-graham/]
