Billy Graham's Grandson Admits Affair, Resigns From Pulpit

The grandson of evangelist Billy Graham resigned as pastor of a Florida megachurch once prominent in the Religious Right movement after admitting to an affair, according to The Washington Post. Tullian Tchividjian, 43, pastor of Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church in Fort Lauderdale, confessed to church leaders several days ago and resigned effective immediately, the church confirmed Sunday night. Tchividjian — who is the son of Billy Graham's eldest daughter, Virginia — has been less politically active than his predecessor, D. James Kennedy, or his uncle Franklin Graham, who now runs the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association and has become a prominent advocate for conservative positions.
