So the North Carolina Museum of History allows the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association to design and execute a special Billy Graham hagiography in 5,000 history-free feet of museum space, whitewashing over and airbrushing out anything that doesn't tend to suggest that the man is a living saint and all-round useful Republican symbol. The whole exhibit capped off by video of heir and theocratic bully Franklin Graham lecturing the museum-goer on the true meaning of being such a Towering Figure of Godliness.
This is Billy Graham without context, completely outside history and therefore unhistorical, mounted proudly and non-transparently (no info anywhere that the exhibit is 100% financed and scripted by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Assn.) in the state history museum.
And once he's shuffled off this mortal coil, we'll have his graven image set up in the U.S. Capitol as the living embodiment of everything North Carolina stands for since the Republican Right took over every lever of power in this backward-moving state.
What will history say about that?
