Billy Graham’s Haters Getting Surprise In The Middle Of The Nation’s Capitol

As many in the liberal media gloss over the tragic death of Rev. Billy Graham, lawmakers are working to have a statue of the pastor erected in Washington, D.C.

North Carolina lawmakers want to have a statue of Graham in the U.S. Capitol Rotunda to honor one of the most influential voices in American history.

Each state is allowed to have two statues inside the Capitol, but they must be deceased.

North Carolina lawmakers are working to have their statue of Charles Aycock removed because of his ties to white supremacist groups in Virginia years ago.

They want to replace Aycock’s statue with one for Graham, who was born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Graham passed away on Feb. 21 at age of 99. But lawmakers want to ensure his legacy and career that spanned over six decades continues to impact our nation.

Leading the effort is North Carolina Gov. Roy Cooper, who called on the congressional committee to expedite the removal of Aycock’s statue.

“I ask the Joint Committee on the Library of Congress to approve the State of North Carolina’s request to replace the statue of Governor Charles B. Aycock in the Statuary Hall Section, and to provide a new statue of the late Reverend William Franklin ‘Billy’ Graham, Jr.,” Cooper said.

Cooper will need to submit a formal request to the Architect of the Capitol, which will then go to the Joint Committee on Library Action.

Many are confident that the request will be approved by Congress given the positive impact Graham had on the nation for many years.

His Biblical teachings and leadership impacted presidents, businesses, and many Americans who used his faith-based guidance in their everyday lives.

Graham was an American hero, and he deserves to be honored in our nation’s Capital so he can inspire the next generation.
