Southern Baptists Believe Mormons are a Cult and Non-Christian- That Includes Mitt Romney?

It's to laugh. I was recalling the Robert Jeffress of the First Baptist Church in Dallas was dead set against Mitt Romney, said Mormonism is a cult and Mitt Romney is not a Christian.

Richard Land also said that Mitt Romney is not a Christian


Joel Osteen thinks that Mormons are Christians, but doesn't even know what the Mormons believe.

And the head of the South Carolina Southern Baptist Convention said that Baptists would vote for an adulterer over a mormon.

The Rev. Brad Atkins, tabbed in November to lead the group for the coming year, told Patch on Friday that while Gingrich's infidelities may represent a major obstacle for some Christian voters, it isn't an issue that necessarily excludes the former speaker from consideration. Rather, it's an issue that calls for prayerful consideration of Gingrich's numerous public confessions to his wrongdoings.

The issue presented by Romney's faith may be more deeply rooted to South Carolinians.

"In South Carolina, Romney's Mormonism will be more of a cause of concern than Gingrich's infidelity," said Atkins, the pastor at Powdersville First Baptist Church in the Upstate.

"Conservatives can process and pray their way through the issue of forgiveness toward a Christian that has had infidelity in their life, but will struggle to understand how anyone could be a Mormon and call themselves 'Christian.'"

So where was Mitt Romney the other day? At Liberty University, Jerry Falwell's college. What did Jerry Falwell think about Mormons?

Bill Keller says to invite Mitt Romney to Liberty U was to compromise

P.S. I kind of laughed over this.
