Introducing Discussionist: A new forum by the creators of DU

A religion forum, and no mention of Billy Graham? [View all]

Billy Graham just endorsed Mitt Romney this week, they met and Billy gave his blessings, or whatever... he chose to stop intellectual warfare from Evangalical preachers against the cult of Mormonism.

GEEZE... one group of fantasy thinkers agrees NOT to wage a publicity campaign against another (non military) group of fantasy thinkers, both of whom have made billions of dollars over the past century convincing millions of Americans to give them, (one of the two) 10% of those millions' of Americans' income, TAX FREE!!!

Billy Graham, Mitt Romney, two VERY SUCCESSFUL religious leaders of MILLIONS OF FOLLOWERS in the USA, both claiming to be Christians, both claiming all sorts of fanciful stories about revelations, visions, feelings, moments, denials of temptations, and on and on and on.

So, does anyone know the net worth of Billy Graham, his ministries, or Mitt Romney, his ministries?

Mitt Romney vetoed over 800 bills while Governor of Massachusetts, almost ALL of them over-ridden by the legislature.

Just sayin...

Why did I throw THAT FACT in? Just saying, it only takes a few tens of thousands to to commit 10% of their income to Mitt Romney's church, which I see every day as I drive down state route #2 on Mass from Concord to Boston..I see that monstrosity of a church on the hill overlooking Boston, in Belmont or Arlington, (not sure which, Belmont, I think). And then I see Billy Graham billboards in NH, and CT and NY and NC, trying to convince me that the reason my life isn't right is because I haven't accepted Jesus as my Savior. It's either one form of guilt-tripping, or it's another... both of which don't really have anything to do with anything about me, but about taking my money.

That's what Billy Graham, and Republicanism and Mitt Romney are all about. Strange there's not a word of discussion of this bastardization of "religious" activity in America here on this liberal DU forum on "religion". Why so?
