Dr. Robert Jeffress pastors First Baptist Church of Dallas. He admitted that Mormonism is a cult yet backs Romney over Newt when he has a choice between a cultist and a conservative Christian.

You’ve got that right. Apparently he pastors a “mega church”.

They support homosexual marriage, as well, by only selling Starbucks coffee in their restaurant.

But I do have a question. Who is the ‘conservative Christian’ in the race?

Conservative Protestants historically...have considered the Roman Catholicism which Newt converted to, also a kind of “cult” except one MUCH more ancient, influential and pervasive than Mormonism.

Many, for example, strongly opposed JFK just due to his affinity to Rome.

Most conservatives in our two party system rationally only want one thing, THE DEFEAT OF BARAK OBAMA.

Newt at this point Newt cannot get the delegates, and cannot get the nomination...hence, rationally, they are supporting the only candidate—IN OUR TWO PARTY SYSTEM—who can possibly DEFEAT OBAMA, Gov. Romney.

A number of our presidents have NOT been committed, bible-believing (or born again), Christians, including a couple of our founders. I believe a pseudo or nominal Christian in political power can be more destructive to the faith, than even a member of a cult.

I’m very sorry for it too, but even a flip-flopping, lying, cultist....is better than the Marxist, fake-Christian, would-be-dictator we have now.

Some trash is a lot more toxic than other trash.

America is—for better or worse—a two party system.

If you don’t vote for the Republican (trash) you WILL be voting for the Democrat (fascist, socialist, literally-destroying-America-through-crushing-debt) trash.

If the car is driven more slowly toward the cliff...we do have a better chance of stopping it—even with an idiot driver.

It is mathematically impossible (much less politically) to stop it now. America is going to hit the wall.

I’m a Newt man, but hey the presidency is a secular office, not a religious one. I can understand why people are jumping on the bandwagon. I think they are wrong that Romney has it wrapped up, but I think that is why they are doing it.

Carraway? Nuts?

No, maybe a bit "seedy."

There will be an initial flourish of interest, but I think the “Mormon Problem” will vanish long before the election.

I’ve got plenty of problems with Mormonism, but I think the basic political instinct will kick in...that a man’s beliefs are out of bounds. I don’t think his Mormonism will be a significant issue.

Seriously - Tiger - I clicked on that Santorum link.

I was dumbfounded.

That kind of crap coming from a ~LAWYER~????

I can see why he’s a politician. He missed the first course on presumption of innocence. Not to mention due process, prejudicial pre-trial publicity and about a dozen other things.

For Pete’s sake! Even Alan Dershowitz of all people said the charging document was a piece of crap. Rick, along with the scheming DA and a bunch of other people are gonna look pretty stupid if they throw this thing out before it gets to trial.

A lawyer and a presidential candidate. Talk about prejudicing the case. I guess Rick was feeling too white and thought he needed some street cred with Da Panthas. Shows a total lack of good judgment.

At this point, unless something divinely miraculous happens at the convention, I’m voting for whoever is running against obama in the general election on the GOP ticket. I don’t care if he’s rastafarian, scientologist, moonie, hari-krishna, primitive-Baptist, Catholic, Methodist and yes, even if he’s Morman or Mermaid-Man.

The GOP candidate will be my choice because the only other *viable* candidate running at that point will be obama and I ain’t voting for a demoncrap.
