Billy Graham to Mittens: ‘I’ll do all I can to help you’
October 11, 2012
ASHEVILLE, N.C. — Mitt Romney asked the Rev. Billy Graham for his prayers Thursday and the ailing evangelist came through by praying with the Republican presidential candidate and offering his support.
The 30-minute meeting between the world-renowned Christian leader and Romney could provide the former governor with a major boost among evangelical Christians skeptical of supporting the first Mormon nominated for president.
Graham then asked Romney what he could do to help.
“Prayer is the most helpful thing you can do for me,” Romney said. “And what you’re planning, what your son has shown me is going to be very very helpful. And I appreciate that. Its going to be terrific.”
Graham, Franklin Graham and Romney then prayed and as the meeting ended, campaign aides said that Graham told Romney: “I’ll do all I can to help you. And you can quote me on that.”

Billy Graham hates Gays even more than Mitt Romney, so they some a lot in common.

Hey Franklin and Billy, you realize this man's religion DENIES the unique godly nature of Jesus Christ and teaches that Lucifer is his older brother, right?

One of these days, Billy Graham and his North American network of anti-gay Haus Fraus supporters, will die off. But until then, they are doing real harm, at all levels, to the gay community.
If you ever meet a supporter of Billy Graham, either gear up for a fight or avoid them and leave the room.

Honestly, I think Billy Graham is mostly bed ridden and senile. All these statements are issued by his vile, evil son Franklin.

For what it's worth -- i.e., not a lot -- Billy Graham is a Democrat.

Billy Graham is a Democrat like the Pope is a Christian - in name only.

Really? He's still breathing?
He looked like the Crypt Keeper 20 years ago. I notice we haven't seen a recent photo.
Now that Halloween is nigh, perhaps we'll get one.

He must be 125 by now; he already looked ancient 30 years ago.

There are a number of anti-gay Democrats, but all Republicans are anti-gay.
Billy Graham fits the Angry Old Man, profile to a T.

It doesn't matter that there are anti-gay Dems because the platform is pro-gay.

The hypocrisy is that fundamentalists view the Mormon religion as a demonic false religion. I guess it's the "enemy of my enemy" thing.

Hmm...wonder if Franklin was "translating" for his dad? Billy was always very careful to pray with/for ALL the candidates. In his own way, he was very political like that, because he wouldn't alienate followers who were against a candidate he supported.

The irony being that Islam pretty much has the same story on Jesus as Christians, they just believe he's a prophet from God, not the son.
(And we know Fredo Graham thinks Obama is a Muslim).

You cannot blame Billy's hatred on his son. Billy himself was all over the radio here in NC during the anti-gay amendment passage urging the faithful to vote against the evil homosexuals. Billy Graham is a who will soon be in hell where he belongs. Billy himself was on the radio here urging the faithful to join him at Chikenshit Fil-a on that day when he and the other hate mongers rewarded a restaurant chain for being gay bashers.
Billy Graham is a hate monger.

Here's the page that was scrubbed from Billy Graham's website when he decided to back Romney.
"What is a cult?
A cult is any group which teaches doctrines or beliefs that deviate from the biblical message of the Christian faith. It is very important that we recognize cults and avoid any involvement with them. Cults often teach some Christian truth mixed with error, which may be difficult to detect.
There are some features common to most cults:
â¢ They do not adhere solely to the sixty-six books of the Bible as the inspired Word of God. They add their "special revelations" to the Bible and view them as equally authoritative.
â¢ They do not accept that our relationship to Jesus Christ is a reality "by grace through faith" alone, but promote instead a salvation by works.
â¢ They do not give Jesus Christ, the divine Son of God, full recognition as the second Person of the Trinity, composed of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
Some of these groups are Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, the Unification Church, Unitarians, Spiritists, Scientologists, and others."

Thanks to the Nixon tapes, we know what Billy Graham is really like.

No joke about that, full page ad in my Sunday paper yesterday, paid for by THE BILLY GRAHAM EVANGELISTIC ASSOCIATION. He doesn't come right out and say vote for Romney, what he does is more hateful. This is a quote from the ad:
[quote]I strongly urge you to vote for candidates who support the biblical definition of marriage between a man and woman, protect the sanctity of life, and defend our religious freedoms.
All the more reason to vote for President Obama. Anyone that is associating with this nutcase is clearly not dealing with a full deck.

Billy Graham has been promoting hatred against the Gay community for a very, very long time now.
