Billy Graham's Website Removes "Mormonism" From List of Cults
“Our primary focus at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has always been promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” Ken Barun, chief of staff for the association, wrote in a statement. “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.”
This is the same kind of logic, I suppose, that prompted Billy and his family to support George. W, Bush's book signing at The Cove. You may remember, this is the same book where George Bush confirmed his wholehearted support of water boarding. The Billy Graham organization, and many individuals who support neocon policies, should perhaps consider taking a closer look at theology instead of throwing it out the window whenever the winds of politics blow. Remember some basic theology from kindergarten? "Two wrongs don't make a right." Mormonism is, in fact, still an occult, even though Obama may be considered the less desirable candidate in a close race, especially when considering Obama's pushing through of the NDAA. the Fast and Furious cover up and the Benghazi cover up. However, Graham's desire to adopt situational ethics and an atheistic end-justifies-the-means philosophy is not an acceptable answer.
Removing Mormonism from an objective list of cults underscores how people will become quite lost ethically and logically when they put ideologies over basic scriptural precepts. Mormonism is a cult that leads people towards a false salvation and a false Christ. To deny these facts because of a friendship or because of political ideologies is both unnecessary and deceitful. Christians promoting candidates who praise waterboarding is another issue. Amazingly, Graham's book-signing event and waterboarding endorsement at The Cove was after George W. had already left the White House. No excuses there. One can only wonder.
I'm not quite sure how first-class deception and throwing theology out the window help in "promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ." This gives the false message that we Christians supposedly need to whitewash the truth or lie a little in order to help God out with an election and with life in general. Wrong idea and wrong message. That message does not represent the Jesus Christ I know nor does it reflect the gospel in any way shape or form.
It's really too bad that neocon Christians such as Graham did not have the foresight to stand behind true Christian candidates such as Ron Paul, who stand for such inconvenient truths as basic civil liberties for all people, the right not to be tortured, the right not to be imprisoned indefinitely without a trial, and so on. On the other hand, these pesky little subjects just might get in the way of electing the next neocon puppet. In this latest move, Billy Graham seems to be reasserting his claim for the "Greatest Christian Neocon Puppet Award" after a bit of a hiatus.
