“Is AIDS a judgment of God? I could not be sure but I think so,” said Billy Graham back in 1993 during the height of the AIDS epidemic that caused the death of millions of people globally at that point. It was a time when the world continued to fight for a cure.

Of course, like many who get called when using their own voice as that of God’s, he backtracked, stating: “l don't believe that and I don't know why I said it. I remember saying it, and I immediately regretted it and almost went back and clarified the statement… God stands in judgment of all sins, but AIDS is a disease that affects people, and is not part of that judgment. To say that God has judged people with AIDS would be very wrong and cruel. I would like to say that I am very sorry for what I said.”
