I don't think Mr. Romney's friends of other faiths need to worry about him installing a baptismal font in the White House. They view Romney as less of a threat to their religious freedoms than Mr. Obama has already proven to be.

Romney has flipped positions on a number of issues, pandering, evidently, with some success. Now, despite earlier attempts to stop his campaign (Santorum?), the evangelicals will hold their highly developed noses and vote Mitt unless he either becomes a Democrat or changes his race. Until the day after the election, they are stuck with each other unless some right wing looney comes out of obscurity under some other party label.

My family roots are Southern Baptist from the deep south.
To them, the only thing worse than a White Mormon, is a Black Democrat.

The fact is Evangelicals supported every other GOP candidate BUT Mitt Romney until he was the last man standing in the nomination process.
He was not their first pick, but in fact -- was their very VERY dead last pick.

Dropping the rhetoric is the only way to save face.

Classic example of, If you can't beat'em join 'em.

After the election - it's back to the same old, same old.

Mark and LDS lib,

thanks for providing the expected charges of racism from the left. It's amazing how if anyone DARES disagree with BO's policies, they are by default racist.
