    So says Pastor Jeffers, head of the 1st Baptist Church of Dallas and head of Evangelical Christians USA on CNN today.
    He said Mormomism is a cult. Then he said, politically supporting Romney is giving validity to a cult.
    He ended saying that if someone doesn't embrace Christianity the way his group / denomination does, they are not really Christians.



    Republicans are an interesting lot...

    Most religions say their way is the only way. Nothing new here, been that way for thousands of years.

    By the way I bet their are one or two christian democrats somewhere in this world :cuckoo:

    Well technically EVERY religion is a cult.

    The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints has been around since the 1830's and has MILLIONS of members across the planet. It is not a cult.

    Baptistism is as much a 'cult' as Mormonism.

    The 'good' Paster is welcome to his views.... and I am welcome to consider him an ass for those views.

    I'm sure there are millions. Not sure why you think they'd be crazy for being both Christian and Dem though.
    Unless that's for me, for specifying the GOP. In which case, you caught the fact that the pastor was at a GOP event, speaking about GOP candidates, right?
    Also, I don't recall Dems using their religion as a platform or the other party candidates religion as a basis of attack. That is almost exclusively a GOP tactic.

    I don't recall you demonstrating 'independent logic' but you claim it anyway. Go figure.

    As someone who grew up in a Baptist church and understands the rhetoric, let me tell you that his quote has nothing to do with the Republican party. He is spouting Baptist beliefs. BTW, most of the Baptists I knew growing up were Democrats like my parents and they all believed Mormons were a cult. My sister married a Mormon and it just about killed my parents.
