Franklin Graham Says Mormons Not Christians, Questions Obama's Conversion

The Wall Street Journal ran an article on statements made on MSNBC yesterday by Franklin Graham, son of well-known evangelist and author Billy Graham, related to the faith of presidential hopefuls Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, and President Barack Obama. Graham says he’s “sure” Santorum is a Christian because he can see what’s in his heart, but he’s not sure about Romney or Obama. Graham did say he felt Romney would make a good president, even though “most Christians would not recognize Mormonism as part of the Christian faith.” And Graham continues to question Obama’s claim to be a Christian, saying because Obama’s father was Muslim he cannot “rule out” that Obama is Muslim himself.

When one of the panelists on MSNBC commented that Graham spends a lot of time evaluating other people’s faith, he answered, “This is my business…I look at a person’s political interests, but more importantly I look at their spiritual interests. I’m not judging them. But you have to go by what a person says and how they live their life.”

When asked to comment, White House press secretary Jay Carney declined, as did a spokesperson for Mitt Romney.
