Evangelism is mainstream now?

Billy Graham's children

This evening while simultaneously preparing the bbq and a marinade for what turned out to be an out-of-this-world piece of flap meat beef steak, I happened to hear an interview on NPR with Billy Graham's daughter. Hearing Anne Graham Lotz speak nearly cost me my temporary crown. The interviewer's tone almost convinced me that this kind of privileged evangelical self-righteousness was indeed something I should consider mainstream. I summoned my daughter and gave her the pellet gun. We looked about for a one eyed one horned flying purple people eater. Soon we agreed that mistaking the one eyed one horned flying purple people eater for any other kind of phantasm that Anne Graham Lotz was conjuring up could lead to an unfortunate accident betraying our own true millenarian beliefs. We put the pellet gun away, but could not put aside this question: is this woman, her family and their beliefs mainstream in any way?
