NASHVILLE, Tenn. (October 15, 2012)--A poll of 1,000 Protestant pastors fond that the pastors favor Republican candidate Mitt Romney over President Barack Obama by a more than 3-1 margin, even though Romney is a Mormon and Mr. Obama has attended Protestant churches.
The Southern Baptist Convention's Lifeway Research found that 57 percent of the Protestant pastors surveyed said they'll vote for Romney compared to only 17 percent who plan to vote for Mr. Obama and 22 percent who were undecided.
Among those who don't support Romney, 82 percent said their decision was not because of his Mormon faith.
Lifeway Research Director Scott McConnell says a 2010 poll found that 75 percent of Protestant pastors don't consider Mormons to be Christians.
He said that's a further indication that most plan to vote for someone who shares their policy preferences rather than their faith.
They can't even make themselves say he's a Christian? Wow!!
All denominations? Not just evangelical and charismatic? If so (really, either way) this is huge!
The real swing voters in this election will be the Amish.
It appears Romney may have some remarkable leadership qualities...thus far I am thinking we may have seen only the tip of the iceberg!
The spawn of satan versus??
3 to 1. now thats the sad part. who is sitting in these churches?
voting pro abortion aka murder.
voting pro homosexuality.
that my brain dump for today. just sickens me.
Both Hubert Humphrey and Joseph Stalin were “left-of-center” politically, but I know which one I’d choose if they were the only viable choices.
Ping for later.
I dont think these figures are anywhere near accurate. My pastor is hooked into a vast network of pastors and churches / religious organizations and they share a lot of information and communicate with a very large group of propleon a daily basis. There are no “undecideds” if you know anything about their Christian beliefs. Almost all are Anti-Obama and in favor of Romney due to their policies and past voting history. Even a large percentage of the black churches are going to vote Romney. They realize that they can’t side with Obama on his stances on gay marriage, homosexuality, and foreign policies and his lack of leadership. They know what time it is...: )
“Among those who don’t support Romney, 82 percent said their decision was not because of his Mormon faith.”
Easy answer. It’s because of his color. There are tons of black protestant preachers. They’ll vote for Obama because he’s black. They’re telling the truth when they say it’s not because Romney’s Mormon.
