This quote brought a smile to my face today:

Quote
On Tuesday, Graham leveled deep criticism at the United States. He compared the country to Sodom and Gomorrah, the Biblical cities synonymous with sin.

Quote
"Self-centered indulgence, pride, and a lack of shame over sin are now emblems of the American lifestyle," Graham writes in the open letter released by his organization this week.

Unfourtantely Billy was unable to be reached on why he refused to use the word Babylon.

Is this meant as a birthday present to Gebre?   I think there is a saying about satire being a form of flattery.  I wish him a happy birthday, in any event.
