Mike Huckabee claimed that evangelist Billy Graham’s death was “fake news” because the 99-year-old is “more alive than ever” in heaven.
Huckabee, who has promoted fake diabetes and cancer cures online, made his claims during an interview with Fox News:
When I heard this morning that Billy Graham had died, I said that’s fake news. Billy Graham’s not dead. He’s more alive right now than he’s ever been. And that’s what he preached, that there is life beyond this because of Jesus Christ.
If somehow Billy Graham did not inherit eternal life, if he’s not alive right now in a life that will never end then everything he stood for, everything he said is null and void. I don’t believe that’s so.
Huckabee failed to mention some of the things Graham stood for: making anti-Semitic remarks to President Richard Nixon, supporting the Vietnam War that cost 3 million lives, advocating dropping nuclear bombs on Vietnam and claiming that AIDS may be God’s judgement, reports RawStory.com.
