But Mitt Romney's a Mormon! (Fear not)

MR says: This writer writes why it would be unethical and unchristian to not vote for Romney based on his LDS faith.

In exit polls following Alabama’s tight March 13th Republican primary race, those who favored Rick Santorum over all responded that sharing their “religious beliefs” was a significant factor in their choice of a presidential candidate.

But if pure theology were really the motive behind Alabama’s majority decision, then Ron Paul, the only Southern Baptist remaining in the race at that time, would have been the winner – and he came in at a distant fourth place.

The “shared religious beliefs” question just provided a polite way of saying, “I don’t want to vote for a Mormon.”

This article makes the uneducated assumption that Thomas Jefferson was not a Christian. Thomas Jefferson was more Christian than the most vocal, self-professed Christian of today. Jefferson lived his Christianity. I'd rather have Thomas Jefferson in office any day than just about anybody we've had since the days of George Washington. Some people just need to read what Thomas Jefferson had to say about the Lord in context (yeah, that means reading the whole statement, not just pulling out snippets), instead of frothing at the mouth about how he was a Deist. Jefferson knew the Lord very well, thank you. He was not at all confused as to the identity of God: Jesus Christ. Neither did Jefferson, like some Christians, figure that obeying the Lord was optional. Sheesh! If you are in any doubt about Jefferson's Christianity, just check with the Lord. As for Romney, the Lord does not hold him in high regard. Romney has a great deal to answer for. Obama ... well, to say the Lord despises him utterly is too weak of a statement. I'd vote for Moroni if he were on the ballot. Now there's someone you can really trust to obey the Lord.

Jefferson was certainly the 'randiest' of the Founding Fathers! I'm sorry, that was just trolling. I thought this article had an interesting perspective. I always enjoy LDS Living's Mormon Report.
