Quote# 84259

At the Values Voters summit in Washington, prominent evangelical leader Robert Jeffress told reporters that Mormonism was a cult and that Romney was not a Christian.

“Mormonism is not Christianity,” Jeffress declared...“Do we want a candidate who is a good moral person, or do we want a candidate who is a born-again follower of Jesus Christ?"

The two are often mutually exclusive.

Well, that's a very good question!

So, you're saying that born-again christians are not good moral people...

Well, you'll get no argument out of me!

Good question.

hmmmmmmmm

yeah, I will pick the moral character. Don't need another Bush killing 10.000 of his fellow countrymen in order to appease his corporate buddies.

“Do we want a candidate who is a good moral person, or do we want a candidate who is a born-again follower of Jesus Christ?"

A little bit of unintended truth there!

Are the magic underwear, untranslatable invisible gold plates, and belief that ancient Jews sailed to America really all that much more goofy than the beliefs of any other religion?

Hooray for morality!

Good moral person, please.

"...“Do we want a candidate who is a good moral person, or do we want a candidate who is a born-again follower of Jesus Christ?"

You have to decide which way you want it.

“Do we want a candidate who is a good moral person, or do we want a candidate who is a born-again follower of Jesus Christ?"

This is why I've always said that the best weapon against fundies is to just let them talk. Give them enough rope and they'll not only hang themselves, they'll try to hang all the rest of their people too.

Apparently more and more teabaggers are willing to vote for a cultist if it means voting against Obama. My question is does that mean that they are going to vote for the pre- or post- Tea party pandering Romney?

Freudian slip much?

It's people like this that make one's religion a big deal in politics.

Right now, Romney looks like the ONLY electable GOP candidate (if he is chosen, I actually hope he beats Obama). At least he doesn't force his religion on others.

As for the last part, others have said the same as I will say: the former (if the latter is also the former, I won't mind)

LOL, I bet he doesn't even realize that he made an argument AGAINST Christians there.

"Do we want a candidate who is a good moral person, or do we want a candidate who is a born-again follower of Jesus Christ?"

I thought following this Jesus guy was supposed to make you moral. Now I'm just confused.

I was going to make some joke here but I saw you already made it for me Mr. Jeffress, thanks a bunch mate that saved me some effort.

As quoted from other christians, "true christians dont judge" Oh wait, I dont think they say that anymore. But their own bible says no judging, guess theres no such thing as a real christian then.....

Well even though that was honest, Id take the moral person

This asshat was a preacher where I grew up. He gained national notoriety for stealing books from the local library. Please note that instead of being punished, reprimanded or scolded in any way for breaking the 8th and 9th commandments he was instead promoted to a much larger church.
