And...Here...We...Go...
 
The legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren and this great nation is critical. As I approach my 94th birthday, I realize this election could be my last. I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the sanctity of life and support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman. Vote for biblical values this November 6, and pray with me that America will remain one nation under God.



—Billy Graham, Montreat, NC

It's all good.

ASHEVILLE — A Billy Graham Evangelistic Association article labeling Mormonism a cult has been removed from the group’s website following the 93-year-old evangelist’s meeting with Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney last week.

Strange bedfellows indeed.

Hey, at least he had the decency to remove Mormonism from his list of cults prior to "endorsing" Romney.








Edit: Drat... listo beat me to the punchline.

Direckshun 10-24-2012 11:43 AM

It's only a cult if you're not politically expedient, I suppose.

I like Billy Graham a ton. Way more than his douchebag son. But this was a pretty blatant promotion of theocracy.

blaise 10-24-2012 11:43 AM

Wow, electrifying stuff here.

BigRedChief 10-24-2012 11:46 AM

It's not a cult anymore after 50 years? Did the Mormon religion change Billy?

Well, pandering helped Bush2 out quite a bit. I'm disturbed when religious leaders promote candidates. This lends credence to those who question the Church's special tax free status, and it dances on the top of that "wall of separation."

He doesn't name a candidate that I can see.

From the article:

"The ads intentionally do not mention any candidate, political party, or contest, urging instead for readers to cast votes for candidates—at all levels—based on their support for biblical values," the statement reads.

That's not an endorsement of Romney. Unless of course you believe that Obama does not support the biblical values of the intended audience. Which is probably true. But Graham did not endorse any candidate.

Are you deliberately obtuse?

loochy 10-24-2012 11:52 AM

Unfortunately, the protection of Israel is not happening because of Biblical beliefs.

No, I gave you a fact.

Do you think any not for profit that expresses preference for one candidate over another deserves to have tax exempt status revoked?
