Mitt Romney Not a Christian, Says Mega-Christian With Megachurch

Thumbnail image for Mitt-Romney-Mormon3.jpg
Robert Jeffress, the evangelical megachurch pastor who introduced Rick Perry at the Voter Values Summit yesterday, has publicly questioned Mitt Romney's faith. Politico reports that when asked whether Mitt Romney was a Christian, Jeffress said, "No." Jeffress added, "That is a mainstream view, that Mormonism is a cult." Jeffress did say that he was "in no way speaking for [Perry]," but the Perry camp is swiftly distancing themselves from the Baptist pastor. If they need a ranch where they can hide from him, I think Perry might have a hook-up.

Politico reports that Perry's campaign spokesman Robert Black "said that the campaign didn't choose Jeffress to introduce Perry and does not share his view of Mormonism." During his speech, Rick Perry said the following about Robert Jeffress:

And Pastor Jeffress, I want to thank you for a rousing introduction. He - he knocked it out of the park, as we - we like to say. And - and a fellow who on any given Sunday is working with 10,000 Texans in his - in his church. So I just again want to say thank you to quite a leader.

Pastor Jeffress did give Romney a compliment, however, saying that he's "a fine family person." Too bad, because he also said, "I just do not believe that we as conservative Christians can expect him to stand strong for the issues that are important to us."

So, Mitt Romney is a family person, but isn't a Christian. This is confusing. That's why we've compiled a list of other things Mitt Romney isn't:

  • Will and Grace star Debra Messing
  • Eleven feet tall
  • Your dad*
  • Inventor of the PupSTEP Plus
  • Made of rich Corinthian leather
  • Able to write with his feet
  • Baptist
*Not applicable if you are Tagg Romney, Matt Romney, Josh Romney, Ben Romney, or Craig Romney

NickGreene, you've seem to edit some prominent details from your article, wouldn’tbe attempting to mislead readers now would you? This Pastor also stated he'd still support the cult following Romney over the un-bibical Obama. 

“Prominent Pastor Calls Romney’s Church a Cult”

October 7, 2011

"He also said that hebelieved Mr. Romney is a “good, moral person,” and that he would endorse himover the president."

 

" If it comes to that, he said,  “I’m going toinstruct, I’m going to advise people that it is much better to vote for anon-Christian who embraces biblical values than to vote for a professingChristian like Barack Obama who embraces un-biblical values.”

As far as I'm concerned, ALL religions are cults.

PERRY AND GOP HOPEFULS CRAWL ON KNEES BEFORE RELIGIOUS FANATICS - BEGGING FOR APPROVALIt's a sad commentary to the state of our Republic, that these GOP Presidential hopefuls feel the need to come crawling before a gathering of Evangelicals in the hope of gaining approval and support. Evangelicals, most of whom seem to have one foot in a staight jacket, have taken over the selection process for the Republican Party. This is exactly the kind of political mayhem that Jefferson warned us about, and took action to prevent. The nominee of the Republican Party has to cowtow to religious fanatics in order to get nominated. The Evangelical agenda includes; the reversal of Roe v Wade, prayer in public schools, the end of stem cell research, making homosexuality a crime, and legislating a National Religion - theirs. Oh, and influencing Cabinet appointments. For Secretary of State - how about Robert Tilton, or Jimmy Swaggert, or Pat Robertson, whichever one of them isn't under current indictment for tax fraud. The clock is ticking for the Christian Storybook. Only right wing America takes them seriously. The rest of the world is laughing.Read this:http://shauncostello.wordpress...

It's hard to tell which is more dangerous; Pastor Jeffress or Warren Jeffs.

No. In this case, Wright is Wrong. But that seems to be the motto of the Republican Party, these days.
