Billy Graham says he ‘would have steered clear of politics’ if he could do things differently
The Washington Post points to a recent interview with North Carolinian Billy Graham in which the 92-year-old evangelical preacher says he “would have steered clear of politics,” when asked if he would have done anything differently in his life.
Graham, speaking with Christianity Daily, also said, “… people in power have spiritual and personal needs like everyone else, and often they have no one to talk to. But looking back I know I sometimes crossed the line, and I wouldn’t do that now.”
Graham has been spiritual counsel to numerous high-profile politicians, including presidents. During a visit to North Carolina last year, President Obama and Graham prayed together for the 29 miners who had recently been killed in a coal mine explosion in West Virginia.
