Five days after being admitted to a North Carolina hospital with pneumonia, the Rev. Billy Graham has been released from the hospital, and is now resting comfortably at his mountain home.

Meanwhile, is Lady Gaga trying to be the next generation’s Graham — reaching out to millions (she’s now the most followed user on Twitter) with her repurposing of religious language and imagery into a gospel of self-love?

(My two cents: No, it’s modern art and artful publicity-seeking, but hey, beats those who are preaching gospels of hate, or the prosperity gospel… no?)
