Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
"What does this have to do with anything?" Nothing much, mostly just getting attention. Blogger mankind, I think, is drawn to  controversy and religion is one of the most controversial subjects. However, the point to take from the statement, if there is one, is that religion is a powerful force and shouldn't be trivialized. I wouldn't mind a discussion on the topic in the future, as I stated. In the US there is an unwritten law - don't mix religion with anything. Similar to don't criticize race or ethnicity.  Both issues are taboos. The article itself is fairly bland, unless considered in a particular light.  For me it was interesting because I have always admired Graham, not so much for his achievements, but his unwavering core beliefs and moral character. And, again, not necessarily the message, but the constancy.
