Creep-you-out Friday

This one is more of a mental-image exercise. Following is the headline of a press release that a certain famous preacher's foundation just faxed us:

BILLY GRAHAM RAPID RESPONSE TEAM DEPLOYS TO CALIFORNIA

The splash graphic at billygraham.org further highlights the absurdity:

I'm not trying to make fun of the guy, mind you - hell doesn't sound like a place I'd like to go to - it's just that they probably could have picked better wording. Anything that makes me think of Billy Graham hoisting a fire hose is... well, it's creepy, isn't it?

In other faxed-in religious news, apparently Radio Disney edited the word "God" out of a commercial for the movie The Ten Commandments. Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't God one of the main characters in that story? I mean, isn't that like trying to advertise "The King and I" without using the word "king"?
