Graham, a renowned evangelical pastor, wrote in a recent post for the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association that although dealing with someone who won't take responsibility for their actions can be very frustrating, it is important to continue communicating with them and offering love and prayers for them.

Famous professor and atheist author Richard Dawkins delivered a video message at last week's Reason Rally in Washington D.C. where he slammed the belief in God as "cowardice," and urged people to resist what he called the "God temptation."
"The fact that you exist should brim you over with astonishment. You and I and every other living creature are machines of ineffable complexity. This complexity and its powerful illusion of design is why so many people succumb to the God temptation," the evolutionary biologist said in his message, posted online.
"The temptation to evade, by invoking a designer, the responsibility to explain. The God temptation is an evasion of responsibility because it invokes the very kind of thing it's supposed to be explaining." more >>
