Rev. Billy Graham Endorses Mitt Romney

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney got the endorsement of the Rev. Billy Graham, who promised to do "all I can" to help Romney win the presidency, reports the Associated Press.

Romney told Graham: "Prayer is the most helpful thing you can do for me... What you're planning, what your son has shown me, is going to be very, very helpful. And I appreciate that. It's going to be terrific."

The meeting with the 93-year-old minister came days after Romney told the Des Moines Register editorial board that there wasn't any anti-abortion legislation he planned to pursue as president.

However, on Wednesday, Romney told reporters that he is running as a "pro-life candidate and I'll be a pro-life president."

Romney went to see Graham and his son, the Rev. Franklin Graham, at Billy Graham's home in Black Mountain, North Carolina.

Rev. Billy Graham made no mention of Romney's Mormon religion which often contradicts Christianity, even claiming that Jesus Christ and Lucifer are spiritual brothers, and that Mormon founder Joseph Smith will sit with God and Jesus to judge everyone in the afterlife.
