Location, Location, Location ... Even for a Cult of Personality

A cow that talks about the life of Billy Graham, a 40-foot glass cross set in the end of a barn, the Graham Brothers Dairy Bar for high-fat snacks! What more could you want at the new Billy Graham Library in Charlotte?

Christianity Today (like, it's happening NOW, mon) understands that proximity is EVERYTHING. First we praise God, and then we race cars:
When the library opens free of charge to the public June 5, state tourism officials hope it and the planned NASCAR Hall of Fame nearby (scheduled to open in 2010) will draw visitors to the area.
State tourism officials ain't the only ones hoping. The "library" (museum, with talking cow) cost $27 million. They're gonna need to sell a lot of snacks.
