    Romney can flip flop at will, so why can't everyone do it!

    It is time for Christians to band together against the atheists.

    That's a funny one.

    "Christians" have said, in large majority, that Mormonism is a cult. That it isn't Christian. That it's a peversion of the Christian message.

    and now, because it's a Mormon for the party of the religious.... it's A-ok.

    Hypocrisy is a "sin."

    Just because you don't like it, doesn't make it less true. Mormonism in a religion of Christianity. Protestants also think that Catholicism is a cult. Roman Catholics to many evangelicals aren't real Christians. Now is not the time to nit pick theological matters over who is the better Christian when the entirety of Christian values is under assault.

    ah. a "christian nation" adherent.


    I don't care one way or the other. I've always found the "mormons aren't really christian, catholics aren't really christian, etc.. crap to be entirely bigotted.

    But now, to try and throw support behind a candidate, because he supposedly agrees with christian values, and throwing away principles of your churches to do it, is mass hypocricy.

    So from the pulpit, people can preach that mormons are a cult and going to hell, but now, he's the best choice for the nation.

    do people beat their head against the ground before coming up with this shit?

    A candidates religion isn't an issue. His positions are.

    Gay marriage? Abortion? Obamacare and it's attack on the Christian beliefs? ... These are about the only political topics that would come up in an election and Romney is on the right side of all of them, Obama is on the wrong side of all of them ... (contraceptives are available everywhere and no president is going to change that)

    The added bonus to electing someone who believes in God is that he believes that he will be judged on his actions by a higher power. Something that Obama doesn't believe, after all, he could (and likely will) pardon all those involved, including himself, from any Libyian or fast in ferocious charges.

    All in all .... I find Romneys religious leanings a plus
