Christians Should Vote For Romney

Thank you, Mr. Barber. The anti-Mormonism rampant in the campaign for the nomination led to hysterics that have made the non-leftist segment of the American electorate confused. Romney has been painted by political spin to an extent that few perceive his real preferences and penchants. The Mitt Romney of the book "No Apology" is quite trustworthy. I recommend the book to those who remain uncomfortable with him. Romney's LDS faith is absolutely pro-life. When Mitt ran for the governorship in Boston he knew he could not win in that state on a pro-life platform, so he said he would accept the state's pro-choice bias. That was certainly not because he favored abortion.

Romney bragged that he did not appoint a single pro-life judge while in office.

The man is definitely NOT pro-life.

For a rather different take on Romney's judicial appointments:

And as for Romney not being pro-life, the head of the statewide pro-life group in Massachusetts disagrees with you:

Doug, I wouldn't trust a Romney apologist any more than Romney, even if he claims to stand for the pro-life cause. I've had many doubts in recent years of the level of commitment of the leaders of our pro-life establishment organizations, and reading the piece you linked to merely confirms my doubts.

I decided long ago that I would never vote for a pro-abortion candidate. Romney devised Romneycare, which provides abortion coverage, and he has never apologised for Romneycare. He is not pro-life, and I will not vote for him.

Romney's "flip flop" was when he realized through the stem-cell issue that he could not function as a pro-choice governor. He has been unapologetically pro-life since. His religion doesn't and will not dictate policy to him as the LDS Church is strictly neutral in politics except in issues where the moral aspect cannot be overlooked. The case of marriage as the union of one man and one woman is an example. But the Church has been very influential in Mitt's life, giving him solid conservative values that will not disappoint Bible-belt supporters.

What a load of crap , a review of romneys record gives shows the spin of philbrysons post . Romney is big government statist just like Obama. They differ on how government may solve the problems of our society but they both agree the solution lies in big government.

Hey, it's Capt the undercover Democrat! How's it goin', Capt the undercover Democrat? Long time no laugh at you!

For those who haven't seen this moron in action, Capt-Call has one goal in life--to decrease the number of votes for Obama's top numerical opponent. Capt wants Obama re-elected, and he'll do anything or tell any lies to help bring it about.

You're a joke, Capt. And a bad joke at that.

Panda -- It is a sign that you do not have a cogent argument when you start that garbage about "undercover Democrat".

Why don't you grow up intellectually you post such nonsense.

Romney's insistence on appointing homosexual activist judges gave Massachusetts homosexual "marriage". So don't give us this garbage about Romney being anything like a social conservative.

People whose efforts help re-elect Barack Obama ARE DEMOCRATS. Period. No excuses. No whining. No running from the light.

You help him, you own him. He's all yours.

Romney had an 85% Democrat legislature in a hard left activist state, and you think he could have pushed through Conservative judges?

Have you ever even heard of the term, "math"?

Corbett, your blatant dishonesty is repulsive. Please leave, and go post along with all your Pro-Obama brothers on some Leftist blog. They love lies. We don't.

Gary Johnson did and served two terms in democrat state, shrunk the size of government and was a leader in job creation

Capt, your posts get more laughable each time.

Gary Johnson--whom I like a great deal, by the way--ran New Mexico, which isn't nearly as leftwing as Massachusetts. Johnson never saw an 85% activist Democrat legislature. You of course know this, but facts mean nothing to a Democrat masquerading as a Conservative.

In addition, Johnson is far, far from being a social conservative, so by what rationale would you suppose he wants conservative Supreme Court justices? He's pro-choice, pro-gay marriage, anti-enhanced interrogation, and in favor of legalizing ALL drugs--not just mild stuff like marijuana.

Capt, you can't help Obama by mistake. You help him because you support him.

So Bible-belt conservative fundamentalists share Romney's Mormon values. Right.

It's no secret that I have been and remain a vocal critic of Mitt Romney. To say that his conservative bona fides are suspect is an understatement. I have tremendous respect for a number of fellow evangelical Christians who say that they will not support his presidential candidacy. I expect I will anger some of them, and may even lose a few friends. Still, in November, I am voting for Mr. Romney and suggest that any Christian - Republican, Democrat or independent - should do the same.

Jesus admonished: "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves:...
