No More ‘Haters’ on the Right
by

The AP reports that the Rev. Robert Jeffress has endorsed Mitt Romney for president. Jeffress, you may remember, caused a commotion last October when he called Mormonism “a cult” and declared that Romney is not a Christian.

Jeffress theological views haven’t changed. Jeffress believes Christians should support Romney in November “in spite of his Mormon faith,” because Obama, though a Christian, embraces non-biblical principles, while Romney embraces biblical principles like the sanctity of life and the sanctity of marriage. (In fact, even when he made the supposedly controversial comments, he suggested he’d vote for Romney over Obama.)

This puts the liberal media in a bit of a bind, because Jeffress was often the only example they could cite of the Christian right’s alleged anti-Mormon bigotry. And it helps reinforce the argument I make today that most of the anti-Mormonism in this campaign is coming from the left.
