Franklin Graham questions Obama, Romney on Christian faith

(CNN) - Franklin Graham, son of famed evangelist Billy Graham, on Tuesday questioned whether Mitt Romney's Mormon faith qualified as Christianity.

He also raised concerns about President Barack Obama's dedication to Christianity, as well as to Christians living in Muslim countries.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, or Mormons as members are colloquially known, identify themselves as Christians.

    Franklin Graham has no clue about God or Jesus. It's truly sad that we have so many mean spirited, bigoted, self-appointed biblical spokesmen like Graham, who totally miss the point, getting so much spotlight.

    Atheism is myth understood. People who don't / can't understand science, cop out and get sucked into religious cults, that are based on ancient myths. God is pretend. Peace

    How does Graham know if his phoney religion is better than their phoney religion ?

    of course Mormons are not Christians, they Mormons. Get over it. Christians believe in the Trinity. It's fundamental to Christian belief. Mormons do not. The deity of Jesus Christ is a critical and fundamentl defining difference between "Christ"ians and Mormons. Get over it.

    GOD: God is the Creator of the universe in all its dimensions and the source of Knowledge in all sentient beings.
    God has sent a New Revelation, a Teaching and a Pathway to rekindle humanity’s relationship with the Creator as we face living in a declining world. The New Message comes with the Will and Power of God to unite the world’s religions, to end our ceaseless conflicts and to call forth the greater gifts that each person has brought into the world. The New Message is the largest Revelation of its kind ever to be given to humanity.
    We stand at the threshold of Great Waves of environmental, economic and political upheaval and change which will alter the face of Earth. Humanity must unite to prevent collapse from within and subjugation from without.
    Each of us has been sent into the world for a greater purpose, waiting to be discovered. This greater purpose resides beyond the realm and the reach of the intellect, in Knowledge that lives deep within us.
    KNOWLEDGE: Knowledge is the core reality within us, a deeper mind beyond the intellect, and is our direct connection to God. Knowledge represents the part of us that has never left God. Instinct and Intuition are at the surface of Inner Knowledge.
    We live in a Greater Community of intelligent life in the universe for which humanity must prepare.
    We live in both a mental and physical environment. The mental environment contains forces that affect our thinking and emotions and that can dominate us until we become strong with Knowledge.

      Belief in gods breed hate and intollerance for others. How is that a good thing? God sucks.
