So the Evangelicals can’t live with a Mormon? How about a Catholic, a religious Jew? We As Conservatives, Republicans, whatever we call ourselves, need to stop with the petty religious titles. Was Mitt a conservative? No, not by a long shot, but what of the alternative? I didn’t like some of his previous positions, but I promise you I don’t like any of Obama’s, past or present.
If our base feels slighted because our nominee isn’t their flavor of Judeo/Christian, then we have a problem, as the Dems have no such qualms, and neither do the bulk of Americans.
I’m not saying we don’t need moral, ethical people in office, we do, we absolutely do. Personally, I don’t care whether my man is Protestant, Catholic, Sikh, Jewish, you name it. Does he care about this country and does he want it to improve? If yes, he probably has my vote.
Great points. Rick Santorum is Catholic. Newt Gingrich, I believe, is a converted Catholic. If either of them was the nominee would the evangelicals have stayed home too? We just gave the worst president in American history another four years to wreak havoc on the country and no doubt some evangelical out there is saying to himself, “at least we don’t have a Mormon in there”.

Satan is for “good morals.” What Satan opposes is Jesus Christ and the Gospel. “Good morals” alone are useless. I WILL NOT be for electing anyone that is NOT FOR the real Gospel of Jesus Christ and the morality that flows out of that. What is good for REAL Christianity is GOOD for the country. What is NOT SUPPORTIVE (not merely neutral) of REAL CHRISTIANITY is bad for the country. One cannot be “for improving the country” and NOT be for spreading the REAL Gospel...they go hand in hand. Freedom begins with GOD and the fear of Him. Jesus Christ is God. That is absolute truth.
