Dallas, Texas mega-church pastor Robert Jeffress recently told conservative radio host Janet Mefferd that even though GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney belongs to the “cult” of Mormonism, Americans should vote for the "non-Christian" because the Obama administration “shakes its fist” at God and "absolutely repudiates what Jesus Christ said about some key issues"(audio below)."
Pastor Jeffress warned that America, under President Obama, is “about to go over the moral and spiritual cliff from which there is no return," reports RightWingWatch.org.
Pastor Jeffress did not cite any verses in the bible to back up his "no return" claim.

Jeffress said: I still think there are concerns out there among evangelicals about voting for a Mormon. I’ve made peace with it. The way I’ve made peace with it is to make it very clear on programs like yours that Mormonism is a cult, it is a false religion, Mormons worship a multiplicity of gods, they deny the Bible, in fact they think the Bible is so error-filled there had to be a second book of revelations."
"I want to make it very clear that I don’t believe Mormonism is Christianity, but I do think that in this case it is better to vote for a non-Christian who supports biblical principles like life and marriage than voting for a professing Christian like Barack Obama who absolutely repudiates what Jesus Christ said about some key issues."
