Evangelist Billy Graham wants you to vote 'biblical values'

After evangelists Billy Graham and his son Franklin Graham endorsed Republican Gov. Mitt Romney for president, references on the Billy Graham Evangelical Association's website that Mormonism is a cult and  not a Christian religion were erased. Later, the younger Graham gingerly sidestepped the issue of Romney's Mormon faith with CNN's Piers Morgan, claiming that the most important thing for Christians this election season is opposition to gay marriage.

Billy Graham is now urging his followers to "vote biblical values."  In a posting on his website, he writes:

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 sanctity of life and support 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.

Much has been made of Graham's advancing years, including a "My Hope" campaign to coincide with his 95th birthday in November 2013. Already, followers are being urged to make lists of non-believers who they can proselytize to so that "millions will come to Christ."

    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.. andreligion.. 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
