|Notes from a small island

"Here's another charmer from the always invaluable Beliefnet. Franklin Graham, son of Billy Graham, said yesterday that his organization, Samaritan's Purse, has an army of relief workers 'poised and ready' to roll into Iraq to serve the physical and spiritual needs of the Iraqi people. He's in constant contact with the US government agencies in Amman to help coordinate efforts.
"Graham says that he knows he can't just whip out the good book and start preaching the gospel in an Arab country. But 'I believe as we work,' said Graham, 'God will always give us opportunities to tell others about his Son... We are there to reach out to love them and to save them, and as a Christian I do this in the name of Jesus Christ.' "
- Joshua Micah Marshall, from his blog Talking Points Memo.
Franklin Graham, by the way, a close associate of GW Bush, is on record as having called Islam a "wicked" religion.
