Romney Watch '08 - Part VIII

Mitt Romney's religion is becoming an increasingly focal part of his candidacy for the Republican Presidential Nomination. John Dickerson provides a pretty good rundown of some of those issues in Slate.

The main concern appears to be how he will come across to Republican primary voters. Dickerson points out opinion from Bob Novak that Romney will not win due to rejection by Evangelical voters. I think Romney has the ability to overcome these issues, but it will be difficult.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is described by some as a cult, who question its missionary program and whether it is a bona fide Christian Church. As a member, I can say that we are indeed Christian, but I also welcome the distance between us and other Christian theology, even so-called Orthodox Christianity. At least we don't use phony offers like this to persuade people of our beliefs.
