The influential Dallas pastor who called Mormonism a theological cult last fall told News Radio 1080 KRLD Tuesday that theres a good biblical case for voting for Mitt Romney.
Sometimes voting for a candidate is voting for the lesser of two evils, Dr. Robert Jeffress said in an interview with KRLD. Its like my friend Janet Marshall says, Jesus isnt on the ballot this year, so we have to make choices.
After introducing Texas Gov. Rick Perry at the Values Voter Summit last October, Jeffress told reporters that Christians should not vote for a Mormon like former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney because the religion is a cult. He later clarified in a television interview that he meant to call it a theological cult, and said his view is consistent with historic Christian beliefs.
Given the choice between a Christian like Barack Obama who embraces very unbiblical principles like abortion, and a Mormon like Mitt Romney who supports biblical values like the sanctity of life and marriage, I think theres a good biblical case for voting for Mitt Romney, Jeffress told the radio host on Tuesday.
Jeffress, who is the senior pastor of First Baptist Church Dallas, backed Perry until the Texas governor dropped out just before the South Carolina primary in January.
As a Christian, I want to compare a candidates positions to biblical positions and I believe the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage and religious liberty are key issues in this election cycle, Jeffress explained. Thats why I think Mitt Romney is preferable to Barack Obama.
If Romney is the lesser of two evils,then that makes Obama the evil of two lessers.
I curse the political class in this country that has brought us to this point.
Meanwhile in reality land...
Romney and the donors who funded the gay marriage fight
>>If Romney is the lesser of two evils,then that makes Obama the evil of two lessers.<<
They both deny the word of God. They both enable abortion and homosexual "rights" and "marriage". I won't support either, because I don't want to stand in front of the Lord and try to justify myself. I know He won't be buying it.
Next Tuesday, April 24th, five states vote: CT, DE, NY, PA, RI.
To say that this day will be an uphill battle for Newt is an understatement.
Inside every preacher is a politician fighting to get out. . .or is it the other way around?
I agree. And if Romney can’t pull out a victory. where does that leave us?
Same here. See tagline.
>>The main question: WHY THE F%$K we must SETTLE FOR EVIL, period?
Wheres the outrage?<<
So what’s your plan, Mr. Dole?
>>About 15 years or more ago the sign in front of one Cincinnati church read: Of two evils,choose neither.<<
If you sit home and we get Obama, well, he is the greater of two evils.
Anyone with an ounce of sense knows that.
So, if a candidate the equivalent of Stalin were running against one the equivalent of Hitler and the Stalin were running as the Republican and was less evil than Hitler, you'd vote for Stalin? Or is there a line you won't cross and would refuse to vote for either evil candidate?
You'd think that line would have already been crossed if you're a Christian and forced to choose between Obama and a man that was the father of gay marriage and gave Massachusetts $50 abortions in his healthcare legislation.
Your mentality is one of the reasons why we continue to decline morally in the nation.
That isn't the choice, though. The choice is between a Republican socialist and Democratic one. For some reason, you think having the Republican one (and/or another Democratic one) for eight years is better than the present Democratic one for four more years.
Yes I do.
If Obama were re-elected, he would take that as an incentive to do pretty much everything that annoys conservatives, and amp it up pretty hard. Does anyone want more of the Trayvon Martin sympathy statements from Obama, or how about Obama whining about how insurance isn’t covered where he wants it and then whining more to call it all a war on women. I am sick of Obama’s outright racially and religiously divisive rhetoric, and as a matter of fact, I really don’t want him in office for it, because I don’t like the thought of where it’s taking the U.S..
