Billy Graham statue gets strangled

I thought the sight rather odd yesterday as I passed by the corner of Rosa L Parks Blvd and Commerce St: the statue of Billy Graham appeared to be strangled.  A piece of lumber extended from the nearby cross, and it was attached to pieces of bubble wrap and tape keeping a tight grip around his neck.

The bus I was on zoomed on by, too quick for me to snap a photo.  But Colby Sledge got a picture earlier today, as the machinery was there to lift him out of the ground:

Graham’s statue is leaving what was once Lifeway’s Nashville campus.  As Lifeway prepares to construct a new headquarters in Nashville, they’re moving this statue to a Lifeway campus in Asheville, NC.  It had been in that spot for 10 years.
