Video: Anti-Mormon Pastor Robert Jeffress Now Supports Mitt Romney
Dallas, Texas pastor Dr. Robert Jeffress, who has repeatedly called Mitt Romney’s religion a cult, endorsed Mitt Romney (video below) on Sunday, because President Barack Obama “opposes biblical principles” such as contraception coverage for women.
In 2007, Pastor Jeffress told his congregation: “Mitt Romney is a Mormon, and don’t let anybody tell you otherwise. Even though he talks about Jesus as his Lord and savior, he is not a Christian. Mormonism is not Christianity. Mormonism is a cult.”
But in an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Pastor Jeffress said: “I haven’t changed my tune. In fact, I never said Christians should not vote for Mitt Romney. When I talked about his theology, I was answering a question about theology. And I still maintain there are vast differences in theology between Mormons and Christians, but we do share many of the same values, like the sanctity of life and religious freedom.”
