On Thursday, Joni Eareckson Tada, founder and chief executive officer of Joni and Friends International Disability Center, a Christian-based organization based in Agoura Hills, Calif., issued a statement condemning Robertson’s remarks.
Tada was “dismayed,” she said, that the host of CBN’s most popular program suggested “Alzheimer’s disease is a kind of death” that makes it morally acceptable to dispose of an afflicted husband or wife. “When a Christian leader views marriage on a sliding scale, what does this say to the millions of couples who must deal daily with catastrophic injuries and illnesses?” Tada asked.
Robertson’s latest controversial remark came in response to a viewer who related that a friend whose wife has Alzheimer’s was “bitter at God” and seeing another woman. “The 700 Club” host told the viewer that his friend “should divorce and start over,” while arranging adequately for his deposed wife.
“I certainly wouldn’t put a guilt trip on you if you decided that you had to have companionship,” Robertson said. “You’re lonely.”

Evangelist Billy Graham Hospitalized for Pneumonia

In National News on May 12, 2011 at 4:53 am

 0_61_graham_billy999.jpgEvangelist Billy Graham has been admitted to an Asheville hospital for treatment for pneumonia.

 Doctors say the 92-year-old Graham came to Mission Hospital Wednesday morning after suffering a health episode overnight. Initial testing suggested pneumonia, and diagnostic studies showed his heart was normal.

Dr. Lucian Rice is Graham’s primary physician and says no date has been set for Graham’s release. But he says the evangelist is alert and resting comfortably. Graham spokesman Larry Ross says the evangelist is feeling better since he arrived at the hospital.

Ross says age-related conditions such as macular degeneration and hearing loss have kept Graham at his home in nearby Montreat in recent years. But he says Graham has remained in good health overall.
