The man had an opinion and he expressed it.
Well i don’t know about a “cult”, but they definitely are not Christian.
You cannot control what your supporters say, but here’s hoping these two RINOs destroy one another.
Romney is a member of the cult religion of Climate Change.
As much as I don’t really like Perry, this guy is right. Mormonism fits all 3 disciplinary definitions of a cult: anthropological, sociological, and theological.
One of the many reasons Romney is unelectable. That is precisely the view many if not most Christians have of Mormonism. Pricisely as this article reads.
The base of Christian conservatives will not trust him or vote for him, and he’s a Republican which means none of the Dems will vote for him either. What does that leave for a voting block in the general elecion? 30-some percent of POTENTIAL voters being the maximum possible and going down from there? The election will be a battle of which party has more people NOT vote compared to the other. We can’t win that fight, the Dems can fraud the numbers in every state to make up the difference. We must have massive turnout, nothing else will get it done. Romney has a 0% chance of getting massive Republican voter turnout. He cannot by his own past political stances and his current religion get a good turnout going across the entire Republican voting base. Simple fact, love it or hate it there is no way to change it by the election. Romney is not the guy.
Now look at where Herman Cain is right now... it’s because OUR 20% base is fully on board with his message right now, plus a good chunk of the the middle and those who consider themselves Libertarian due to his message.
Absolutely no contest in terms of the size of the voting pool he can appeal to.
And to be fair I’m not locking down to one candidate this race, if Perry is the man so be it, but even Perry reaches more of our voters by far.
Since when has religion become a reason to vote for or against a candidate? This is becoming an obsession with some here at FreeRepublic.
Do you really want Obama for another term?
Perry, in response, said that he does not believe Romney is a member of a cult. A lot of FReepers will be disappointed in Perry for saying that.
If believing that Jesus Christ is my Savior makes me a member of a cult, I am guilty as charged. If believing in Jesus Christ, that He suffered and died for me to save me from my sins, makes me NOT a Christian, I am guilty as charged. P.S. I thank my Heavenly Father that this pastor is not my judge; he is not qualified or authorized to condemn anyone to hell. He looks just plain silly and makes Perry look bad, too.
Perry better prepare himself for the question to be coming his way at the next debate Tuesday. It is the perfect gotcha question. No matter how he answers it he is going to be in hot water with one group or another.
When my Savior tells me,
Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light." Mathew 11:28-30I believe Him... and have done so.
I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, what many call a "Mormon."
Keeping up this nonsense plays into Obama’s hands. Think about it, especially if Romney gets the nomination. Obama and his tools will use this and make it look like the Republicans bad-mouthed Romney’s religion. I believe that it is illegal to discriminate based upon race, creed, etc.... but here we have this pastor doing just that with his character assassination!
