According to the talking heads on cable news, Barack Obama should be held responsible for anything his “spiritual adviser” has ever said. Apparently, spiritual advisers carry a lot of weight and if they ever say anything the media doesn’t like, candidates need to cut out that spiritual adviser forever. They need to be renounced AND rejected.
So if that’s true, then then it’s fair to comment on the fact that Billy Graham, spiritual adviser to 11 presidents, said this to Richard Nixon.
“A lot of Jews are great friends of mine. They swarm around me and are friendly to me, because they know that I am friendly to Israel and so forth, but they don’t know how I really feel about what they’re doing to this country, and I have no power and no way to handle them.
Graham was a spiritual adviser to Bill Clinton. Why is the media not in a frenzy over Graham’s remarks?
We know why. Because holding candidates responsible for the words of their pastors or spiritual advisers is ludicrous.
