I am getting up there in years, and sometimes I think I've seen and heard it all. There's not too much to change my basic values when it comes to
Then a story like this comes about, and pretty much shakes the foundations of my beliefs. In this case, I would never have thought that in 2011, a
person's religion would be the basis of whether I would vote for him/her. We should be way past that, I would think.
At the Values Voter Summit in Washington on Friday, the pastor of a mega church in Dallas introduced Rick Perry to the Summit with just that very
declaration: Don't vote for Romney because he is a Mormons and Mormonism is a cult!
A pastor of a mega church in Dallas said Friday that Republicans shouldn't vote for White House hopeful Mitt Romney because he's a Mormon and
described the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints as a "cult."
"I think Mitt Romney's a good, moral man, but those of us who are born again followers of Christ should prefer a competent Christian," said Robert
Jeffress, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Dallas, which has a congregation of about 10,000 and has long been considered a highly-influential
church in evangelical circles.
I shudder to think that all Baptists think this way; I hope he is just a singular moonbat. Even if Mormonism does fit some remote category of his, why
should religion be a consideration in how we vote? TG JFK was elected despite being a Catholic!
Btw, there are many supporting stories at the bottom of the article.
