The (Republican) Evangelical Dilemma Nicely, Succinctly Summarized
Which will you choose? The adulterer or the Mormon? Which will you set aside, your morality or your theology?
For South Carolina conservatives, especially evangelical Christians, the 2012 campaign season is the year of magical rethinking. Look at the frontrunners: If you want a president with a legacy of marital fidelity, you’re going to have to work around Newt Gingrich’s adultery. If you believe that Mormons don’t really qualify as Christian, you may find yourself struggling with Mitt Romney.
So what will you surrender this election cycle? Your morals or your beliefs?
[It’s times like these I’m glad I don’t vote for politicians, incumbents, or special interest candidates].
