Romney and Evangelicals

Mitt Romney

A few choice nuggets from the article:

He has invoked the Rev. Rick Warren, a popular evangelical author and megachurch pastor. He has quoted Scripture and alluded to the Gideon Bible as favorite late-night reading. And he has cited his belief in Jesus Christ as his personal “savior.”

On the campaign trail, Mr. Romney deflects questions about the specifics of Mormon beliefs, saying he is not a spokesman for his church. Instead, he seeks to emphasize common values across religions.

“The values of my faith are much like, or are identical to, the values of other faiths that have a Judeo-Christian philosophical background,” he said at a campaign event in New Hampshire this month. “They’re American values, if you will.”

“I find myself having to read for an hour or so before I can fall asleep,” he said. “And thanks to the Gideons, I’ve got good material.”

Let me go on record as saying this:

I am flat tired of evangelicals waving the banner of values over the head of Mitt Romney. Mark DeMoss, Richard Land (or here), or plug in whoever else you want for this bandwagon need to pull their respective heads out. For Mitt Romney to stand before you, I, or any other born again evangelical and proclaim his personal faith in Jesus as savior is a devious deception upon us all.

Just who is this Jesus he calls his savior? He certainly isn’t the same one in the actual Bible. Romney’s Jesus has a brother named Lucifer. Romney’s Jesus was born on a different planet and sent here to ours. Romney is working his way through the Law of Eternal Progression. He is also a “temple-worthy” mormon. He looks forward to the day when after being found faithful in the highest level of heaven he will be made a god and given his own planet to populate with his wife.

He can look at us in the evangelical world and call us brothers, sisters, or whatever he wants. He claim to know the same Jesus (even though he doesn’t). He can claim to be a holder of Christian truth and value. It is a lie. This is a man that when he stands before us considers us destined for hell. He does not accepts us as brothers in Christ. Richard, Mark, and everyone else, what are you going to do when you get him elected and join him in prayer to a god we don’t worship or know? When he leads a state of the union address and calls on his faith in god to get him through, just what god is he praying to? Not yours, not mine.

You have sold your soul to a man who you and the rest of us who do not hold to his teachings are going to hell. Wake up, this is disgusting.

UPDATE:

Add Bob Jones III to the Romney debacle.

“As a Christian I am completely opposed to the doctrines of Mormonism,” Jones told the newspaper. “But I’m not voting for a preacher. I’m voting for a president. It boils down to who can best represent conservative American beliefs, not religious beliefs.”

UPDATE part deux:

Here is a little link to an interesting side by side comparison of LDS to Evangelical Christianity.
