Mitt Romney Still Dogged by Quadrennial Sectarian Conflict Known as the Republican Primary
Despite his best efforts, Willard the Morman still has an “Evangelical problem.”
Romney has encountered two levels of resistance from evangelicals: doubts that he is truly committed to conservative positions on social issues such as abortion, and theological tension over his Mormon religion. That latter problem was especially pronounced in the South, where Southern Baptists and Pentecostals, two groups particularly leery of Mormonism, make up at least two-thirds of Republican evangelicals, notes John C. Green, a political scientist at the University of Akron who is an expert on religion and politics.
That “latter problem” is also known as “bigotry.”
What kills me about Evangelical Southern Republicans (aside from the fact that they’re wrong about everything) is that they constantly profess to love this country so much, but apparently haven’t read Article VI of the Constitution.
The Senators and Representatives before mentioned, and the Members of the several State Legislatures, and all executive and judicial Officers, both of the United States and of the several States, shall be bound by Oath or Affirmation, to support this Constitution; but no religious test shall ever be required as a qualification to any office or public trust under the United States.
Why does the Constitution hate Real America?
