Inside Politics: Billy Graham group drops Mormonism from cult list
Question of the Day
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — The evangelical group run by the Rev. Billy Graham no longer believes Mormonism is a religious cult.
According to the Charlotte Observer, the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association removed Mormonism from its list of religious cults this past week.
“Our primary focus at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association has always been promoting the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” Ken Barun, the association’s chief of staff, told the Observer. “We removed the information from the website because we do not wish to participate in a theological debate about something that has become politicized during this campaign.”
Scientologists, Unitarians and Jehovah’s Witnesses, among others, also were listed as religious cults, according to Mr. Graham’s association.
Ann Romney: No more campaigns if they lose
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s wife says her husband will not run again if this race doesn’t turn out the way they hope.
Ann Romney told ABC’s “The View” Thursday that it was “a very hard thing” to put her family through another White House bid after he lost the 2008 Republican primary. She said she agreed because she thinks her husband can bring economic prosperity to America, but they “absolutely” will not do it again if he loses.
DNC chairwoman mum on 2012 convention fundraising
RALEIGH, N.C. — The head of the Democratic National Committee distanced herself Thursday from the effort to raise money for her party’s 2012 convention in Charlotte, which fell millions of dollars short despite breaking a pledge to forgo cash from special interests.
At a campaign event in North Carolina, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Shultz said she knew nothing about the sources for the $24 million raised by the convention's host committee, an amount well short of its $36.7 million goal.
