Bothwell writes in his article, BILLY GRAHAM and His Gospel of Fear, that "Billy Graham was a
preacher man equally intent on saving souls and soliciting financial support
for his ministry. His success at the former is not subject to proof and his
success at the latter is unrivaled."
And "Graham's message was principally one of
fear: fear of a wrathful god; fear of temptation; fear of communists and
socialists; fear ofunions; fear of Catholics; fear of homosexuals; fear of
racial integration and above all, fear of death."
"Graham also left behind a United States
government in which religion plays a far greater role than before he intruded
into politics in the 1950s. The shift from secular governance to "In God
We Trust" can be laid squarely at this minister's feet."
how Graham was inspired by Hitler, how he supported segregation, and preached
that authoritarianism and acceptance of government was God's will.
