Graham

Expected to Rise Again

10/11/2008 9:05 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Billy GrahamOh God! Evangelist Billy Graham tripped over one of his dogs last night, and had to be hospitalized. He is listed in fair condition and has some minor bruising.

In previous years the 89-year-old has survived prostate cancer, hip replacement, and the insertion of a shunt in his head to combat swelling of the brain. Jesus take the wheel!

Doctors are confident he'll be upright for his 90th birthday on November 7th. No word yet if the dogs will be in attendance.

Quit being so disrespectful! He is an amazing man, and has more integrity in his little toe than all of TMZ put together!

You're gonna think fairy tale one day when it's a fiery tale! Don't mock God and those that serve him.

He and his wife Ruth loved and accepted Gays and Lesbians before it was cool for Christian public figures to do so. His ministry also offered help for battered women, drug addicts and alcoholiccs years before anyone else did. I've also heard that Robbie Benson plays Billy in a movie.

This is the best of what America is. He is a HERO and a National treasure. Thank God for all of the people who came to know Christ because he was willing to preach the glorious GOSPEL. Thanks to his beautiful wife Ruth who was a handmaiden of the Lord, sacrifices for her and the children were endless.... May God bless His servant Billy,grant him rest and peace.

Yes, congratulations to him for throwing his life away by perpetuating a ridiculous 2,000 yr old Fairytale! He's not someone that I would ever look up to. ... to me, he's basically a gullible old man. I don't wish him any ill will, but lets face it. He's just an old guy that was brainwashed at an early age like a lot of people.

TMZ, must have been a slow Suri Cruise day. Well then, let's poke fun and an ailing old man.
Dopes!

It's no fairytale, and he has helped millions turn their lives around and kept them from ending up in an eternity of fire by trusting in the Lord. Don't mock him, TMZ.

What a great man, but what is even greater is the God he has served.

Happy Birthday and I wish you a speedy recovery. I am now 49 yrs old and when I was 8 yrs old I accepted Jesus Christ as my saviour after watching one of his broadcast. Thank God for Billy Graham.

moveover00, you're displaying remarkable ignorance and intolerance. It's really not very becoming.
