Evangelist Billy Graham hospitalized

By the CNN Wire Staff

Updated Monday 5:30 a.m.

(CNN) - Evangelist Billy Graham was admitted to a hospital overnight for treatment of a pulmonary infection believed to be bronchitis, a North Carolina hospital and his evangelistic association said.

"Upon admission, he was alert and in good spirits," said the statement, which was released both by Mission Hospital in Asheville and the The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

The 93-year-old also was hospitalized for pneumonia last November, six months after similarly being admitted to a hospital for the same condition. Since then, he has remained "in good overall health ... though he continues to remain at home due to age-related conditions," according to the hospital and the association.

    this man can preach!! he was politicly incorrect before that stupid fraze ever was spude out. by those secular Clintons.. our lord has granted him a long life in order to continue being a light in the darkness of the world. to continue to tell people to repent. and give there life to Jesus. to teach that salvation is a gift from God. and all you have to do is.. Repent of your sins. accept Christ as your personal saviour. and live by his will. and not that of the world

    The fact that this guy is still alive is proof there is no God.
