Spreading the word about the growing presence of progressive Alaskans and their powerful ideas on the web
Romney's faith does not bother me, but the Christian crazies will not vote for a Mormon. Go ahead, McCain, make my day.
I put the Mormons in the same class as the Scientologists. The more you look into it the less sense it makes.But I think that most who have grown up in the Mormon church, and remain in it while leading successful lives have decided to stay in because of their family.I would vote for a McCain/Romney ticket sooner than an Obama/Biden one. Talk about a couple of misfits.
At least with a Mormon, we won't have a wandering penis. Mormons excommunicate over that. I want someone who is stable and BORING.
"Prominent evangelical leaders are warning Sen. John McCain against picking former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney as his running mate, saying their troops will abandon the Republican ticket on Election Day if that happens.They say Mr. Romney lacks trust on issues such as outlawing abortion and opposing same-sex marriage and because he is a Mormon. Opposition is particularly powerful among those who supported former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee in the Republican presidential primaries earlier this year.“McCain and Romney would be like oil and water,” said evangelical novelist Tim LaHaye, who supported Mr. Huckabee. “We aren’t against Mormonism, but Romney is not a thoroughgoing evangelical and his flip-flopping on issues is understandable in a liberal state like Massachusetts, but our people won’t understand that.”The Rev. Rob McCoy, pastor of Calvary Chapel in Thousand Oaks, Calif., who speaks at evangelical events across the country, told The Washington Times, “I will vote for McCain unless he does one thing. You know what that is? If he puts Romney on the ticket as veep.“It will alienate the entire evangelical community - 62 million self-professing evangelicals in this country, half of them registered to vote, are going to be deeply saddened,” Mr. McCoy added. "
“It will alienate the entire evangelical community - 62 million self-professing evangelicals in this country, half of them registered to vote, are going to be deeply saddened,” Mr. McCoy added. "THAT is a line o'BS. What-- they will vote for Obama then? NFW!
If the pick is Romney, then a substantial number of the Christian right will not vote, as noted by a number of evangelical leaders. In addition, many Christians are upset at the corruption of the Republican Party, from the Senate aides scandal, to foot-tapping in the Minneapolis Airport, to Coconut Grove, to Girdwood. McCain is going to have trouble with turnout.
