No sooner did Billy Graham endorse Mitt Romney for president than his website was quietly scrubbed of all the anti-Mormon statements that appeared on it previously, including several pages calling Mormonism a cult. The New Civil Rights Movement reports:
Today, the Sacramento Bee and other media outlets, including Graham’s own website, posted Graham’s statement endorsing Mitt Romney for president, and two commenters posted a link to the 2010 Graham statement classifying the Mormon religion as a cult. Hours later, that page no longer exists…
Additionally, a search for the word “Mormon” on Billy Graham’s website identifies six pages, yet none of those pages have the word “Mormon” on them as of this writing, yet most of them still have the word “cult” on them.
Well isn’t that convenient? I guess a Mormon is better than a Muslim atheist Black Liberation Theology Christian socialist communist fascist.
