As an African-American Christian I’m not surprised that Billy Graham came out in support of Mitt Romney. Although many African Americans attended Billy Graham’s ministry, there was always a feeling that he was a charlatan, what we call in the black community a “jackleg preacher.” Graham went so far as to remove from his website that Mormonism was a cult. Why, all of a sudden, did he change is mind?

Billy Graham is the same as Jerry Falwell, Father Coughlin and Jimmy Swaggart. Graham is nothing more than a 92-year-old Southern hillbilly who could not accept an African-American Christian president of the United States.
