Billy Graham Takes Mormonism Off List Of Cults

So what did Mitt promise Billy in return for this? Colleen Curry reports for ABC News:

The prominent Christian evangelist Billy Graham has taken public steps to embrace Mitt Romney for president this week, removing Romney’s Mormon religion from a list of cults on his website and taking out an advertisement that appears to urge people to vote for Romney.

Graham’s Evangelistic Association removed the word Mormon from its website, where it used to be listed along with Jehovah’s Witnesses and Scientology as a cult.

The move comes just a week after Romney visited Graham at his home in North Carolina.

“Our primary focus at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has always been promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” Ken Barun, chief of staff for the association, wrote in a statement. “We removed the information from the website because we do not wish to participate in a theological debate about something that has become politicized during this campaign.”

Graham’s organization also took out an ad in the Wall Street Journal today, in which a letter from Graham asks people to vote for socially-conservative candidates…

      No, I’m sure it’s on strictly theological grounds.  Some major revision to official dogma, or some such.  Like not being black or something like that.

         Mitt must have promised to crack down on usurers.

        Speaking of which, where the fuck ARE the churches that preach against the sins of bankers?

    Destructive cult or benign religion?
    Benevolent religions offer hope, compassion, and want peace for your fellow man – even the nonbelievers. A destructive cult wants power,money, and obedience. All the outsiders must be destroyed (Armageddon). I think that’s the big distinction between two different belief systems of high demand cult or benign religion.–Danny Haszard former Jehovah’s Witness

    Christianity is a cult and that’s not on his list either.

    Jesus says if you deny me before man, I will deny you before my father. Billy is senile Franklin is unsaved and evil for allowing this to happen. Mormonism quote “as man is god once was, as god is man may become”. Same lie in the garden of Eden.

      Perhaps Romney is the antichrist.

  • Sublime

    A faithful Mormon would be the first to point out that Mormonism seperated itself from Christianity at its very outset. Mormonism begins with a plurality of gods, not with the monotheism of the Bible. To Mormons Jesus Christ is an exalted man — not the incarnate Word. The list of categorical doctrinal differences continues throughout their entire cultic belief system.
    The very essence of Mormonism is the claim that historic Christianity is fundamentally in error, and that true Christianity did not exist on earth from the time of the Apostles until Joseph Smith. Mormonism can hardly be charged with hiding their movement’s teachings — the Book of Mormon and the other fundamental texts of the Latter Day Saints are published in plain sight.
    If I lived in a garage that doesn’t make me a car. For a Mormon person to call the religion “Christianity” is as upsurd as Billy Graham removing Mormonism off his list of cults from his website. Mormonism will always be a cult.

    I was waiting for Mr Graham to give me permission to marry several dowdy, dull eyed brides & wear special underware. Thanks, Bill.

    Seriously (or as seriously as we can take their logic) if their primary focus is sending people to God then he isn’t too worried about it if he’s taking Mormonism off the “Do Not Covert To” list.
