BB SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 28, 1996 T BILLY GRAHAM RELIGION THE SALINA JOURNAL Graham won't endorse for president SPECIAL EVENTS Evangelist has ties to both candidates and doesn't like making endorsements anyway By GARY D. ROBERTSON The Associated Press MONTREAT, N.C. — Billy Graham has learned something from six decades visiting the White House and meetings with 10 presidents: when to keep quiet. And in this election year, he will not say whether he prefers President Clinton or Bob Dole. "I don't want to get into any kind of politics — right or left or Republican or Democrat," Graham said recently at his rustic mountain home in Buncombe County. "Because GRAHAM I experienced that a few times in my years that you can get into trouble real fast. "Bill Clinton has been a friend of mine he claims since he was 7 years old," he said, referring to a Graham crusade Clinton attended. "The Doles have been guests in our home. We've known Mrs. Dole since she was a girl. Bob Dole, I've known him for I don't know how long. We think a lot of them and we think a lot of the Clin- tons. And we're going to stay absolutely neutral." Graham has never formally endorsed a presidential candidate, but he has certainly supported some more than others during his career as an evangelist. He quietly backed Dwight Eisenhower in 1952 and Richard Nixon in 1960 over John Kennedy, mostly because Nixon was a friend and because Kennedy's Roman Catholicism worried Protestants who feared the pope would interfere with his decision-making. "I have done it in years gone by and I have not called anybody's name," Graham said. He recalled the only time he ever personally endorsed a candidate was when he mentioned John Connally as his choice for governor at a Texas crusade. "If I was a Texan, I would vote for John Connally," Graham recalled saying. "That's the only real political statement I ever made, and I even regretted that." Graham's other forays into politics increased his stature as a confidant to presidents, but also brought controversy. Naivete in divulging the details to the press of his first meeting with Harry Truman stung both him and the president. His tendencies to support the Vietnam War and Lyndon Johnson led to the wrath of detractors. And Richard Nixon's presidency left him crushed by the revelations of Watergate and distanced him ever since from Washington. "Maybe I was naive at that time. Maybe I was used," he said of Nixon in a Graham biography. Graham has had both criticism and sympathy for Clinton since he took the oath of office. In 1994, Graham told newspaper editors meeting in Washington that the press had gone too far in probing Clinton's personal life and called for "a wall of prayer around Bill Clinton" to support his presidency. But earlier this year, he criticized Clinton for vetoing a bill that would have outlawed certain late-term abortions. • The Emmanuel Foursquare Singles and Nazarene Singles groups will have a get-together from 6 to 9 p.m. today at the Friendship Center, 746 Commanche.

"The paint on that window is chipping away. It sure could use a fresh coat to protect it from the winter storms. I had better do it now while it's on my mind." We all need protection...a shield from the storms of life, before they can chip away at our spirit and erode our soul. Proverbs 30:5 assures us of God's protection..."He is a shield unto them that put their trust in Him." If you already have a chosen house of worship, continue to worship regularly, as we need constant protection and reassurance. If you do not, make plans to begin now...while it's on your mind. Winter is closer than you think. 4:WO Monday James 4?1M7 Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Proverbs Pwwftt Proverbs 4;1»?7 &1-21 Friday Proverbs Saturday Proverbs 9:1-19 Scriptures Selected by The American Bible Society Copyright 1996.

The Dennis Byrd Story DENNIS BYRD, defensive lineman for the New York Jets, was happy-go-lucky and full of pranks, but at the same time deep- thinking and devout with an abiding faith in God. His faith was tested when in a game he collided with a teammate and his neck was shattered. After 7 hours of surgery, he was told he may never walk again. But they underestimated Dennis Byrd and his God! His story will inspire you!
