Yes, Mormonism will play a part in the Election of 2012

And if the Liberals make an issue out of it, they will be hypocrites.

Instead, it seems that Evangelicals will first.

Liberty University students and alumni are accusing the Christian school of violating its own teachings by asking Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints whose adherents are called Mormons, to deliver its 2012 commencement address.

By Friday morning, more than 700 comments had been posted on the school’s Facebook page about the Thursday announcement – a majority of them decidedly against the Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr.’s invitation, citing that the school had taught them Mormonism isn’t part of the Christian faith.

Liberty’s choice of Romney leads to angry student response – CNN Belief Blog – CNN.com Blogs.

I was unaware that Chancellor was the proper title for a hereditary position… but….

Well, this will be fun.

If someone is no qualified to speak at your school, and your school comes pretty near to promoting a theocracy, then how can the same man be qualified to lead your nation?

Oh look… Evangelicals are hypocrites too.

Here. read this.

Frankly, as much as I do not like Mitt Romney’s political stances, I’m pretty happy that a Mormon will be running against an African-America in the Sesquicentennial Remembrance of the War Between the States.
