Holy Rolling

On this day in 1966, evangelist Billy Graham and his family were aboard the RMS Queen Mary, heading for England. Graham would launch a month-long evangelizing crusade, during which time he intended, along with his fellow missionaries, to invade strip joints in Soho--not to enjoy the entertainment, but to convert lost souls. He also made six appearances at a London stadium each week, encouraging sinners to come forward and repent. He is pictured here with his wife aboard the ship.
