    Graham welcomes the President, calling on the audience to "join me in pledging our loyalty to America." President Johnson reportedly received a standing ovation.
    In his sermon, Graham spoke on the "Great Judgment Day," condemning the false idols of fortune, ambition, and entertainment. "Whether we know it or not, we are becoming more and more a secularistic nation, where man himself is becoming an idol," he preached. "We are humanizing God and deifying man."
