Skip to comments.Perry Supporter Calls Mormonism a ďCultĒ
Posted on 10/07/2011 1:59:03 PM PDT by greyfoxx39
Rick Perry just gave a well received speech Here at the annual Values Voters summit in Washington, D.C.though not flawless, the Texas governor is a lot sharper when hes in control, not under fire in a debate setting. But the Texas pastor who introduced Perry has unexpectedly opened the door to a sensitive issue barely discussed in this primary so far: Mitt Romneys faith.
....whether he had in fact been referring to Romney and Mormonism, Jeffers said he had. Mormonism is a cult, he said cheerfully, before rephrasing his onstage statement in a more explicit way: The choice, he said, is between a born again Christian and a good moral person who is part of a cult.
....A Perry campaign spokesman responded to a request for a comment by merely saying, The Governor does not believe Mormonism is a cult.

And this is Perry’s fault because ... why?
"The conference picked someone to introduce the governor, not us," he said.
Because Perry is the media's current favorite pinata?
My nightmare Romney/Cain 2012.
Pastor Jeffress was the leader of the First Baptist Church of Wichita Falls for many years and while I don’t know him personally, I do know his “style” very well, and he is not afraid to tell things as they are.
He made headlines a while back when he said “Americas’ days are numbered” and “..we will not save America”. Now he makes new headlines with his take on Mormonism.
That’s how he sees things, as he believes God says in his Word. I believe he is right on both topics.
I guess they are occusing everyone at The Value Voters Summit of being bigots for having such a man on their stage.
If Romney is the nominee, the MSM will do a full-court press to expose Mormonism, they are playing it close to the vest for now, in the hopes Romney is the nominee.
All you kindly, gentle, pious Mormon-hating Christians better get a hold of Governor Perry and straighten him out!
Straighten our Herman Cain while you're at it. He apparently thinks Mormons are Christians.
And we are BOTH correct.
I have no problem with calling a spade a spade. It probably wasn’t the best decision to voice it unless he had been asked his opinion though. A person should know when to use discretion.
Isn’t it amazing though that we are suppose to blame this on Perry but we are not link “someone” and their “pastor” who preached “G**D**** America”.
First Baptist's Robert Jeffress to Publiclyshalom b'SHEM Yah'shua HaMashiach
Shame Stores That Don't Celebrate Christmas
I guess Jeffress is not aware that Christmas
is a pagan feast introduced by a cult.
Could it be that he is unaware that Yah'shua
was, is and will always be a Jew.
And that Yah'shua will return to rule and reign
the world from Jerusalem sitting on King David throne
He’s essentially trying to turn Perry into the 2012 equivalent of Huckabee, with the Evangelical electorate.
He might succeed, but enough EV leaders are supporting Romney to take that particular club away this time around.
On a pure sociologist’s scale, Mormonism has been around long enough that they aren’t hung up on a single charismatic leader and can pass on leadership without there being deaths. However, they are still pretty quick on excommunication and shunning. Many of the Evangelicals haven’t gotten beyond either. That pretty much puts Mormons somewhere between a sect and an established religion. I think that established religion means that they are so big that you don’t get singled out for failure to attend or tithe. Sociologists don’t give points for right or wrong.
I don’t think they will, otherwise they will come off as completely hypocritical for propping up their front man, Harry Reid, for soooooo long.
They are relying on the Primaries to do that. This is why I believe Mitt’s biggest obstacle in seeking the Presidency is the GOP primary, not the General Election.
That said, as a Mormon myself, I’m hoping Cain continues to rise.
Next we will see a headline like:
RUMORED, PERSON WHO SAW A PICTURE OF PERRY MAY HAVE HAD LAWN MOWED BY AN ILLEGAL
This is just STUPID.
Cain is as big a racist as they come, Romney is a Rhino dud, Bachman is a little loopy, Perry supports illegals and cronies, Santorum is purple, not sure what Huntsman is... so far the only one who has not done anything foolish lately is Gingrich.
They all have problems and whichever one gets the nomination is going to see even worse ridicule than what has come so far.
Either way, he’s not my pick.
