Billy Graham Statue Could Stand in US Capitol

Pagans, better than anyone else, understand the power of symbols.

That his body was exhibited at the US Capitol was a slap in the face of every non-Christian in America.

For his statue to stand there would be a knife in every non-Christian heart in the country.
