Billy Graham goes political with full page ad

October 20, 2012

The Billy Graham Association has put out full page ads in the nation’s top newspaper including The Wall Street Journal and USA Today.

Here is what the ad said.

“The legacy we leave behind for our children, grandchildren, and this great nation is crucial. As I approach my 94th birthday, I realize this election could be my last. I believe it is vitally important that we cast our ballots for candidates who base their decisions on biblical principles and support the nation of Israel. I urge you to vote for those who protect the biblical definition of marriage between a man and a woman. Vote for biblical values this November 6, and pray with me that America will remain one nation under God.”

This comes off the heals of Graham meeting with Mitt Romney and his son Franklin issuing an editorial for USA Today.

Thank you, Billy Graham!!! Only thing better would be to put a Scripture reference for each point. But we appreciate you and admire you for putting out this ad.

Hi, my names Billy graham.

For decades I have been spiritually informing my flock that the quasi religion known as the ‘Mormons’ or Latter Day Saints as a ‘cult’. Up until a few days ago it was well known that my Organization believed and informed the world that Mormons were worshippers of the Devil and would not be received by Jesus.

During this time, my spiritual guidance on the matter has really hurt a lot of people and in some cases tore families and communities apart.
I’m certain as a result of my spiritual advice, young LDS children have been tormented and castigated and made to feel like outsiders, while LDS adults are considered unholy and the hand servants of Satan by those who have taken my advice or been on the receiving end of it.

I’d just like to say none of that matters anymore..We have a Christan black man in the White House, and all that Devil talk, and all that Mormon spirituality nonsense was just that, total nonsense.
Forget everything I ever said about Mormons.. and the Devil.. and religion.. This is a war of Caesars and it should NOT be compromised by ethics, or religious convictions.
And let’s face it, wouldn’t you rather have a crazy white Mormon, than a black Christian in office?
Thank you, Billy Graham
