Skip to comments.Rev. Franklin Graham: Romney Not a Christian
Posted on 02/21/2012 1:02:06 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
The Rev. Franklin Graham says presidential candidate Mitt Romney is not a Christian.
Appearing on MSNBCs Morning Joe show, Graham was asked whether Romney is a Christian.
Graham said he likes Romney, but added, Hes a Mormon.
When one of the hosts suggested Romney still is part of the Judeo-Christian faith, Graham responded: Most Christians would not recognize Mormons as part of the Christian faith.
Im just saying that most Christians would not recognize Mormonism. Of course they believe in Jesus Christ. They believe in a lot of other things, too, that we don't accept theologically.(continued)

Couldn't AGREE more.
Well it should. It is no kindness to pretend people are fine when they are not.
Mormons don’t believe in the same Christ that Christians do.
I do think it is a shame that Mr. Graham is not willing to extend the same benefit of the doubt to Mitt Romney that he extends to Barack Obama. Graham had this to say when he was asked whether he thinks Barack Obama is a Christian: “You have to ask him. I cannot answer that question for anybody. All I know is Im a sinner, and that God has forgiven me of my sins,” Graham said. “You have to ask every person. He has said hes a Christian, so I just have to assume that he is.”
When Romney quits claiming to be a Mormon and claims to be a Christian, I'm sure Graham will extend him the same courtesy.
mormonism is not Christianity - it’s that simple.
I am pleased to see a clergyman step forward and speak the truth about Mormonism. As Christians we are expected to warn of false prophets. The LDS church is a secret society which promotes Theology Communism and is in control of every area of a member’s life. They have the dedication to take over our government, then that of the world. As Bishop, a Temple Mormon, Mitt Romney is fully aware of just whom the church worships, and as a member is not exempt from it’s control.
Thank you, Rev. Graham.
In my opinion, both claims have approximately equal merit. But, as the Rev. Graham said when asked about Mr. Obama, I cannot REALLY answer that question for anyone else.
I’m glad Franklin had the guts to speak the truth. If you ever run across his autobiography, “Rebel With A Cause”, it’s a great read. I picked it up at a thrift shop for $1, desperate for something to read before a long flight. One of the most interesting books I’ve read.
You speak the Truth.
Thank-you and God Bless Rev. Franklin Graham!
He did actually suggest that Obama seems to be a Muslim. But he won't categorically say that Obama is not Christian, because there is no proof. You can't prove a negative. So, he says to ask Obama.
No need to ask Mitt Romney. He is proud to be a Mormon. That's fine, but Mormons are not Christians in the traditional sense of the word, whether Catholic, Orthodox, or Protestant.
“I do think it is a shame that Mr. Graham is not willing to extend the same benefit of the doubt to Mitt Romney that he extends to Barack Obama.”
When a man claims Jesus Christ, we give him the benefit of the doubt.
When a man claims Jesus Christ is a created spirit being who became one of an infinite number of mormon gods, we assume he is a heretic, an idiot, or sincerely wrong.
We don’t assume He is a Christian, which involves following the real Christ.
We do pray the person comes to know the True Christ.
No, I am sorry that is apples and oranges. Romney is a Mormon. They are not a part of the Christian family. That is not putting them down it is describing them. They can be good people, really good people. But Christians they are not by definition. Mr. Obama’s claims are deferent. He claims to be part of the historic faith. I do not know if he is serious or not, but it is NOT the same as being Mormon. Mormonism, the LDS church is a different ‘religion’.
this is hardly news — a member of a non-Trinitarian group like the Mormons or Jehovah’s Witnesses or islam is not a Christian.
Wow! I'm surprised the Mormon Attack Brigade hasn't swooped in here and called Rev. Franklin Graham a bigot yet?
Pf course he’s not a Christian.
FR Christians have been saying that for years.
It’s about time the world hears that Mormonism is not a Christian religion.
