He's not dead yet? He is a true emblem of hatred. RIP but good that you be gone! Go in Peace and reap what you have sown.

Somehow, I don't think it will be peaceful.

Hope he recovers, catching pneumonia at 92 is very touch and go. I hope he returns home.

It's a shame the amount of gullible humans that reside in America. Giving money to the biggest scam in history. Grow up people.

Are you being serious? There is no proof that "god" exists and there never will be. You are not evil for not believing for a floating dude in the clouds.

Evangelists do nothing but spread HATE for anyone that doesn't believe what they believe. Wrong. Just wrong.

I will pray for those who have decided to express vile hatred. Even though it is obvious you hate yourselves. (because only people with low self esteem and inner hatred could be so vicious to another human) just remember that God does love you and the decisions you make in this lifetime will determine your eternity. It is not too late for you.. as long as you have breath in your body you can make a choice to accept the truth. John 3:16

For those of you who think Bill is going to Hell.. honestly I feel bad for you. The internet has brought out the worst kind of evil because people now think spreading hatred and intolerance is ok as long as you are safely tucked behind a computer and no one can see you. God CAN see you!!

We hope he makes a full recovery. This man has been nothing but to this country to to the world. If you have hate for such a man that helped so many, your just a closed minded, hate filled bigot.

You can always tell who the homosexuals and sexual deviants are...you pathetic homo's are going to hell because this man was a messenger and his message was from GOD...and GOD considers you homosexuals big time sinners and he said homosexuality is an ABOMINATION! GOD did not want to give up on you, so he sent his son to let you know what he thinks of sinners....and nobody talks about sinners and HELL, more than Jesus Christ in the Bible. So you want to go to hell? Just keep up what you are doing and you will be there for eternity. Don't worry, most of Hollywood will be with you. God Blessed You Billy and you will receive your eternal reward. Good Job faithful servant!

@john

Could not agree with you more!! If you really want to see something messed up just search "Jesus camp" on Youtube. Now THAT is pure EVIL and exactly what Billy does/did.

I am so stunned at the amount of people still to this day that insist on burying their heads in the sand and saying "NOT LISTENING" to all the scientific proof to back up evolution.

Oh and FYI.. homosexuality has been proven to be a way you are born, just like the disabled.

Aaaand queue the "but in the bible it says..." HAH! Bigoted fiction books.

You do NOT need to be believe in "god" to be happy and be a good person. Just saying.

The only thing good about Graham is his cousin, Jerry Lee Lewis.
