    The Texas pastor who introduced Gov. Rick Perry at Friday's Values Voters Summit in Washington told reporters that he does not believe that former Massachusetts Mitt Romney is a Christian, and called Romney's Mormon faith a "cult."

    "Well, Rick Perry's a Christian. He's an evangelical Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ," Dr. Robert Jeffress told NBC News. "Mitt Romney's a good moral person but he's not a Christian. Mormonism is not Christianity. It has always been considered a cult by the mainstream of Christianity. So it's the difference between a Christian and a non-Christian."

    Perry's campaign quickly distanced itself from the words of the pastor. The Texas governor, according to campaign spokesman Mark Miner, does not believe Mormonism is a cult.

    Actually, you can distance yourself from you minister. Just ask Reverand Wright.

    I think that as this heats up, people are going to learn more about Mormonism, and it isn't going to go well for Romney.

    This is going to be an interesting primary season. The Teabaggers and other radicals now seem to dominate the GOP.

    No mainline Christian denomination considers Mormons to be Christians.

    Mormons are considered a cult and have nothing to do with Christianity.

    I really am not a fan of Romney but the above is just WRONG.

    Christendom already went through its period of rooting out heretics and debating the one and true religion, and we certainly don't need that internacine war to recommence.

    NO religion group OWNS the Christian franchise
