In another disturbing sign that Sen. John McCain has little interest in reaching out to his conservative base, including evangelical Christian voters, his campaign has declined an offer to meet with the Rev. Billy Graham


What's up with McCain?

I am a Democrat and a born again Christian. I would drive up to Montreat to meet him. He avoids politics in his sermons. His sermons surround how important it is to know Jesus.

The only place I have seen this is Newsmax.

I want more proof - I bet there's a lot more to the story.

However, we will keep your event in mind should an opportunity present itself in the future.

Maybe McCain feels burned by the Hagee incident.

Newsmax.com reports of a rejection by John McCain to meeting with Dr. Billy Graham have been refuted by representative of both the McCain Campaign and the Billy Graham Association.

That's what I figured.


"The piece in Newsmax is false. Our campaign has been working directly with Reverend Franklin Graham's office to facilitate an important meeting between John McCain and Reverend Billy Graham. The report's implication that we have 'declined to meet with Billy Graham' is blatantly false, because our campaign has already been working directly with Franklin Graham's office and politely declined Mr. Jacobs' offer to help facilitate a meeting. John McCain has the highest respect for Reverend Billy Graham and looks forward to meeting with him in the future."
