Can Prolife Mormon Mitt Romney find Support Among Doctrine-Focused Evangelicals?
Over the last few weeks I've been pondering this question. Can evangelicals, especially those who concern themselves with doctrinal precision, vote for someone who would be regarded as a member of a cult? For some evangelicals, there is a doctrinal litmus test for presidential candidates. And while there is talk of Romney's flip-flopping on a variety of issues including his stance on human life, I wonder if his prolife popularity is enough to sway evangelicals to vote for him on the basis of his conservatism. I personally think that Barak Obama may appear more evangelical to those who are unfamiliar with church doctrine than will Mitt Romney who identifies himself as a Mormon. I honestly have not formulated a position on this yet, so I would appreciate hearing from you on this.
