Ralph Reed mobilizing evangelicals in Ohio

By Peter Hamby, CNN

Washington (CNN) – Conservative Christian activist Ralph Reed is marshalling his forces in Ohio as the battleground state takes center stage in final week of the presidential race.

The Faith and Freedom Coalition, the Atlanta-based organization Reed launched in 2009 to mobilize voters of faith around the country, is placing more than one million voter guides in 5,300 Ohio churches and plans to complete the effort on the final Sunday before Election Day.

Dropping literature in churches is just one element of a robust closing drive in Ohio to raise evangelical and Catholic awareness of the “cultural issues” at stake in the campaign, Reed told CNN in a phone interview.

“It’s a major push,” Reed said of the Ohio effort. “We’re all in.”

    Billy Graham says mormonism is no longer a cult. Paul Ryan trick or treats and evangelicals are silent (evangels despise halloween, ask any one of them). What else can conservative christians twist for their own power.
    If mormonism is no longer a cult Billy then perhaps some evangelicals can consider signing up since it is just another christian faith that you now approve of.

    Mitt Romney does not believe THE LORD JESUS IS GOD, WHO BECAME A MAN
    how any so called christian could support what the bible calls an antichrist
    is either ignorant of the WORD OF GOD, or a wolf in sheep's clothing.

    So the extremist religious right supports a cult leader over a Christian. Go figure.
