Mormonism ‘cult’ claim vanishes from Billy Graham site

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

Graham pledged to do “all I can” to help Romney get elected during the meeting

The Citizen-Times at 4:56 p.m. on Thursday captured the article, which said cults are “Jehovah’s Witnesses, Mormons, the Unification Church, Unitarians, Spiritists, Scientologists, and others.”

    Apparently politics is more important than his religious convictions. I just lost a lot of respect for Mr. Graham.

      Well, on the one hand, I think it was wrong to call Mormonism a cult. On the other hand, I agree – politics and religion should never mix. Religious leaders should not be taking sides in politics "by the hand of God" so as to influence their followers. That is a very sad trend these days and it's just wrong.

    Sad, because it is a cult. But I seriously doubt Mr. Graham himself made this change for any other reason than to try and avoid openely partnering with a man that is a member of a religious cult.

    That is not a political statement. It's an issue of theology.

    BTW: Know what you get when you mix religion and politics?
