Conservative radio and television host Glenn Beck met with evangelist Billy Graham last week, Beck said on his show.
“Just spent 3 amazing hours with Billy Graham at his mountain top home in SC. His son Franklin joined my wife and me for a talk and prayer,” Beck tweeted on February 19. “I will share some of my visit with Billy Graham on radio Monday. Side note: I expect tweet hate for me, I cannot understand BG hatred. Sad,” he said in a separate update.
