The front page of Sunday's paper has a cover story about evangelicals who will vote for Romney despite being a Mormon. I have talked to many evangelicals who will tell you Mormonism is a cult. Are all evangelicals in agreement with that? If so, Mitt Romney is not a Christian.
The Catholic church, in its creed, acknowledges one baptism for the forgiveness of sin, but does not recognize a Mormon baptism as being Christian. Catholic churches have been preaching against the "Evil Mandate" of Barrack Obama. Yet, so many people seem to think Romney is clearly the choice to make.
I find all of this a bit hypocritical myself. Do all evangelicals really want Romney as President of the United States?

I'm not sure about any other 'evangelicals' - nor those Catholics out there; but I'm voting for Romney because he's not a confirmed Marxist.

There is a simple answer to this question, and it is the same answer to the following voting scenario that will also occur in November:
As you travel south from here towards Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi you will find in increasing numbers a unique type of individual referred to in the South as a "yellow-dog Democrat." If you have not encountered one, they can be quite the interesting mis-match of values. One of these individuals may well be the biggest racist on earth and a cross-burning member of the KKK, but they'll still vote the Democratic ticket next month rather than ever vote for a Republican candidate.
Answer for both: They'll vote for the lesser of two evils (in their eyes) every time. Call it hypocrisy, call it whatever you want to, but it happens on both sides of every election. Don't we as Americans deserve better than that, and better than the options we get offered for leadership?
Look around at the majority of people we now have in elected office. Would you buy a used car from them?

To me that answer is simple. He is the best candidate running to make this a better America.
I as a Christian and really don't understand your question. Faith is believing in something that we can't see or touch. My Bible tells me that I am not to judge anyone, those judging a person about his faith are going against the teachings of God. Maybe they should take a closer look at themselves.
