Mitt and the Religious Right

If Later Day Saint Mitt Romney succeeds in his quest for the Republican presidential nomination, it will have to be with the support of right wing religious fundamentalists. The problem here is how can supposed Christians support Romney? Romney's religious faith is considered a cult by both mainstream and conservative Christian denominations.

Want to know more about what makes Mitt tick and right wing fundies wince, check out Jon Krakhauer's "Under the Banner of Heaven."

For the so called Christian right to support Romney would be the ultimate act of hypocrisy. In fact, to support Romney, the Christian right would be guilty of apostasy.
