Cavetrollhead sent this and I feel it is so important I wanted to blog on this subject.
This is a quoted fro the web page, “Evangelicals for Mitt”
Political and moral values are informed by — but not the same as — one’s religion. That’s why we are not casting our votes based on whose theology we like most. History shows that to be a poor approach.
. . . in 1980 voters had two choices: a divorced movie actor who did not regularly attend church and was not on good terms with all of his children, and a once-married Southern Baptist whose evangelicalism was at the core of his national identity. Voting on the basis of whose doctrine was better would have meant electing the second guy —— over the first, .
Today I heard a woman call a talk show and say that, although she liked Mitt Romney’s politics and he seemed like a good man, she could not vote for him because of her religious convictions. What convictions are these? That Mormons are so evil they could not act honorably in the secular office of the President? Are we that close minded? Haven’t we come further than this, America?
