Tony Perkins says enthusiasm growing for Romney, predicts record turnout
The Washington Post's On Faith ^ | September 12, 2012 | Adelle M. Banks

Family Research Council President Tony Perkins said Wednesday (Sept. 12) that conservative Christians are growing more enthusiastic about GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, and predicted they would show up at the polls in record numbers in November.

“When it comes to the values of family, values of faith, values of freedom, Mitt Romney is a clear choice, I think, for value voters across this country,” Perkins said at a National Press Club luncheon two days before his organization kicks off its annual Values Voter Summit in Washington.

Perkins, a Southern Baptist, said evangelical Christians have “significant theological differences” with Romney, a Mormon, but he said the GOP nominee, if elected, would not be asked to head a national church.

“We don’t want a national church. We want religious freedom,” he said. “I think someone who has been a part of a persecuted religion is going to be even more sensitive to the issue of religious freedom.”(continued)

I distrust Romney because of his stances that he took as governor of Massachusetts on things like, health care, homosexual marriage and gun control. I also know that Mormonism is a cult disguising itself as being Christian.

However, 4 more years of Obama will destroy what's left of America's economy and it's freedoms. So, since there are only two possible people who will be President for the next 4 years, I will support and vote for Mitt Romney.

The chuckleheads in the media have slammed the swift reaction to the crisis of our future president, but Romney showed guts. That’s worth more than gold among the anti-obama faithful. Obama must lose. He will lose.

Turnout will save us, I believe, but other than that I thought Tony Perkins was dead (and I won’t post the expected pic from ‘Psycho’, sorry)?!

If anyone is working on a national religion it’s Obama.

Recently sent $20 I didn’t have because it is that important. Think I’ll volunteer for some phone work again, too.

My enthusiasm for Romney remains unchanged, even as my disgust for the POS in the WH continues to increase.

And it's not Christianity....it's Islam.

my comment is that if all the good ol boys and all the hunters and gunowners and the Baptists and the home schoolers and the beer drinkers and the Nascar fans and the unemployed and the fed up and the patriotic and the military etc etc etc would just GET OUT AND VOTE we'd have a lot fewer problems in this country.

but you know, we'll get the lazy who won't bother, we'll get the self righteous who won't vote because Romney isn't perfect, and we'll get the "conservative" voters who'll throw their vote away on an absurb third party candidate...

It might be Obamaism. Maybe he is playing up to Islam to win them over to his religion.

The Catholic Church is being persecuted by Obama’s HHS, as they implement Obamacare rules that are forcing contraception including morning after pills in healthcare plans.

Romney gets that. He mentioned that in his convention speech. Millions of catholics are on to this. Obama is attacking religious liberty. As Biden would put it, its a BFD.
