Think of religions as a business and people like Graham make more sense. He 
wasn’t a shepherd leading a flock so much as he was captain of the cheer team 
pursuing the latest goals. “BLOCK THAT GAY! BLOCK THAT GAY!” Graham openly 
supported the war in Vietnam, including bombing of the civilians. Privately his 
anti-Semitic remarks were caught on Nixon’s tape recordings. Both of these are 
anti-Christian but neither goes against the business model.
