True Facts


Nov 4, 2007
Billy Graham's daughter was interviewed on the Early Show and Jane
Clayson asked her "How could God let something like this happen?"
(regarding the attacks on Sept. 11).

Anne Graham gave an extremely profound and insightful response. She
said "I believe God is deeply saddened by this, just as we are, but
for years we've been telling God to get out of our schools, to get
out of our government and to get out of our lives.

And being the gentleman He is, I believe He has calmly backed out.
How can we expect God to give us His blessing and His protection if
we demand He leave us alone?"

In light of recent events...terrorists attack, school shootings,

etc. I think it started when Madeleine Murray O'Hare (she was
murdered, her body found recently) complained she didn't want
prayer in our schools, and we said OK.

Then someone said you better not read the Bible in school .... the
Bible says thou shall not kill, thou shall not steal, and love your
neighbor as yourself. And we said OK.

Then Dr. Benjamin Spock said we shouldn't spank our children when
they misbehave because their little personalities would be warped
and we might damage their self-esteem (Dr. Spock's son committed suicide).
We said an expert should know what he's talking about. And we said OK.

Then someone said teachers and principals better not discipline our
children when they misbehave. The school administrators said no
faculty member in this school better touch a student when they
misbehave because we don't want any bad publicity, and we surely
don't want to be
sued (there's a big difference between
disciplining, touching, beating, smacking, humiliating, kicking, etc.). And we said OK.

Then someone said, let's let our daughters have abortions if they
want, and they won't even have to tell their parents. And we said OK.

Then some wise school board member said, since boys will be boys
and they're going to do it anyway, let's give our sons all the
condoms they want so they can have all the fun they desire, and we
won't have to tell their parents they got them at school. And we said OK.

Then some of our top elected officials said it doesn't matter what
we do in private as long as we do our jobs. Agreeing with them, we
said it doesn't matter to me what anyone, including the President,
does in private as long as I have a job and the economy is good.

Then someone said let's print magazines with pictures of nude women
and call it wholesome,
down-to-earth appreciation for the beauty of
the female body. And we said OK.

And then someone else took that appreciation a step further and
published pictures of nude children and then further again by
making them available on the Internet. And we said OK, they're
entitled to free speech.

Then the entertainment industry said, let's make TV shows and
movies that promote profanity, violence, and illicit sex. Let's
record music that encourages rape, drugs, murder, suicide, and
satanic themes. And we said it's just entertainment, it has no
adverse effect, nobody takes it seriously anyway, so go right ahead.

Now we're asking ourselves why our children have no conscience, why
they don't know right from wrong, and why it doesn't bother them to
kill strangers, their classmates, and themselves.

Probably, if we think about it long and hard enough, we can figure
it out.
I think it has a great deal to do with "WE REAP WHAT WE SOW."
Funny how simple it is for people to trash God and then wonder why
the world's going to destruction hell. Funny how we believe what
the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

Funny how you can send 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like
wildfire but when you start sending messages regarding the Lord,
people think twice about sharing.

Funny how lewd, crude, vulgar and obscene articles pass freely
through cyberspace, but public discussion of God is suppressed in the school and workplace.
