As conservatives struggle with the current crop of candidates, evangelicals have really stsruggled trying to find someone who represents their ideas and beliefs and has a chance to win. All the while, in the back of their minds, the idea haunts that the wrong choice results in the Socialist Republic of Hillary.
Mark Demoss has decided to work for Mitt Romney. Many evangelicals have a hard time with Romney's Mormonism. I do,too. While he has many conservative ideals, you have to wonder if evangelical endorsement will not result in further maintreaming Mormonism and further confusing our post-Christian culture as to the real meaning of Christianity.
Demoss answers some of the questions, for himself, in an article in Time Magazine. You can read it online here.
Here is the money quote: But I concluded that I am more concerned that a candidate shares my values than he shares my theology."
I'm not sure I can do that.
