After the Republican debate last Tuesday, one main argument stuck out in my mind that is swaying me towards voting for Mitt Romney....
Robert Jeffress, the pastor of First Baptist Church in Dallas, endorsed Texas Gov. Rick Perry during an Oct. 7 Values Voter Summit introduction, and he asked those in attendance, "Do we want a candidate who is a good moral person or one who is a born-again follower of Jesus Christ?" (attempting to discredit Romney's associated with Mormonism)
I have to agree with Romney's response during the debate, asserting that the Founding Fathers would have disagreed with Jeffress.
"The idea that we should choose people based upon their religion for public office," Romney said, "is what I find to be most troubling, because the founders of this country went to great lengths to make sure -- and even put it in the Constitution -- that we would not choose people who represent us in government based upon their religion, that this would be a nation that recognized and respected other faiths, where there's a plurality of faiths, where there was tolerance for other people and faiths."
Looking forward to your thoughts...
