Evangelical won't vote for him.

Why? Mormons don't accept the trinity, they have errant views on the nature of God etc.

He is a great guy, but to run him would give Hillary victory.

We are electing him to be President, not to be our kids' Sunday school teacher.

He will appeal to the Reagan Democrats, women and Catholics (who remember JFK's fight for acceptance).

So I guess these evangelicals wouldn't vote for a Jew, either?

I could care less what religion he chooses, so long as he's a good man. Refusing to vote for a good, decent man solely because of his faith is as shortsighted as it is bigoted.

No wonder so many buy into the false stereotype that evangelicals are idiots.

How exactly does having a Mormon as President hurt this country? Let's see, no record of jihad against the US or those not in their religion, in fact they are very patriotic. Values? Very conservative, live a lifestyle very similar to the most conservative of evangelicals, pro-life, pro-family, etc. Strongly vote conservative and GOP. Utah seems to be a pretty well-run and pleasant place to live compared to most states. So, most Mormons vote and believe the same as evangelicals on virtually every political issue, yet you want to shun them to an inferior class that can never be leaders?

How exactly does a different interpretation on religious doctrinal issues like the Trinity matter in any political issue a President would deal with?

OBTW, if you want to slap down and trash Mormons with your political caste system so much that many of them stay home, you've just handed several swing states like Arizona and Nevada to the Democrats. Brilliant political strategy.

Can you not see how this reactionary religious bigotry feeds the fears that non-evangelicals have about evangelicals moving (whether by design or not) towards a theocracy? If this shameful situation of evangelicals not voting for a Mormon takes traction as a story, it will just further marginalize social conservatives and increase the likelihood that they have no say in political power in the next election.

Why spit on those who agree with us on political issues more than any other group?
