Late pastor Billy Graham to lie in honor in US CapitolThe body of Reverend Billy Graham, a spiritual advisor to several presidents, will lie in the US Capitol Rotunda next week so Americans can pay respect to the globally influential preacher, lawmakers said Thursday. The rare honor of placing an American’s remains in the Capitol is usually reserved for US presidents, military officials and politicians. Graham, who died Wednesday at age 99, would be only the fourth private citizen so honored, and the first person since US senator Daniel Inouye in 2012.
