If Mormonism is not a Cult, then Mitt Romney and the Mormon Church owe Billy Graham an Apology.

By now I am sure you have heard that Billy Graham has endorsed Mitt Romney in his bid for the Presidency. Soon after that, Billy Graham’s website took down an article which labeled Mormonism as a cult. I emailed Billy Graham, asked why the information was taken down and encouraged him to put the article back on his website. I knew what would come next if he didn’t. The official statement from Billy Graham’s ministry was reported as saying, “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.” I then addressed this issue on our blog by posting, “An Open Letter to Billy Graham Regarding Mitt Romney and Mormonism.”

As I predicted, the secular media, and Mormons in particular, have taken advantage of Graham’s actions. I have read reports ranging from claims that because Graham took the “cult” label off of Mormonism, he is treating people the way he would want to be treated, to claiming he must no longer believe that Mormonism is a cult.

Let’s assume for the sake of argument that Billy Graham no longer believes that Mormonism is a cult and he has removed the cult label to be nice. If that is the case, then Mitt Romney and the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints owe Billy Graham an apology. Why? Because it is hypocritical for Mormons to accept their new endorsement, yet still maintain what they really think about “other” Christians. Earlier this year I wrote an article on our website titled, Mormonism’s Hypocritical Attack. I will rephrase some of what I wrote then and apply it directly to Billy Graham. Read More …

An Open Letter to Billy Graham Regarding Mitt Romney and Mormonism

Billy Graham,

I want to thank you for your many years of serving our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. You came to Rochester, New York in September of 1988. A friend invited me to the crusade and I went three times that week. On Friday evening the 16th, I surrendered my life to Christ at the Crusade and have been serving Him since. A short time after I was saved, a couple of Jehovah’s Witness ladies came to my door and challenged my new faith. That incident led me to become a missionary to Jehovah’s Witnesses and Mormons. My wife and I founded Evidence Ministries in 1992 and I have been a full-time missionary to these two cults since 1999.

This morning I read an online article which stated that you endorsed Mitt Romney, and then your ministry took down some information from your web site which describes Mormonism as a cult. The article can be read here. Read More …
