Franklin Graham was shocked — shocked, I tell you — to find out that the website of the Billy Graham Evangelical Association that he now leads said that Mormonism was a cult before they suddenly discovered that just as he and his father were endorsing Mitt Romney.
The evangelist told CNN that he did not write the article and that he was “shocked” to find the article on the BGEA website.“We have 10,000 pages and I don’t write the 10,000 pages. Other people have written it. There was a discussion as to what a cult was and they (the article) had a definition of a cult and then they gave some examples and when I found out there were examples they took them off. But I was shocked that we even had that on there,” Graham said, as he described the “cult” reference as name-calling.
“If I want to win a person to Christ, how can I call that person a name? That’s what shocked me, that we were calling people names.”
Very sincere of you, Franklin.
