Franklin Graham "shocked" his site called Mormonism a cult

I think I am just as shocked as Franklin Graham. So to be clear, it is OK for him to call Jehovah’s Witnesses, the Unification Church, Unitarians, Spiritists, and Scientologists cult members, but Mormons? Nope.

Should Christians Really Sit This Election Out?

Does God pre-determine who we elect as our leaders—or does He react according to our choices?  As our nation faces a crucial election in less than two months, this subject needs to be addressed and discussed. To me it is obvious that God does not mandate our choices in leaders, either politically or spiritually.  The […]

Democratic Party Officially Backs Same-Sex Marriage for 2012 Platform

Is anyone really a “fence sitter” when it comes to two very diametrically opposed world views?  The difference in ideology could not be made more clear.

And with the presidential election on the horizon, it is more than likely that Mormonism and Christianity might come up in conversation.
