Was reading this, and wondering. Several major religious organizations, like Billy Graham's ministry, and several very outspoken evangelical politicians, with their own ties to extremist groups, like Santorum, gave their endorsement to Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan, despite belonging to organizations which openly preached that Mormism was a cult, that Catholicism was not Christian, and that anything non-Protestant/non-Baptist/non-evangelical was a lie that would send people to Hell if they didn't repent and convert. Their dislike of Obama wa so strong, they publicly denounced a tenet of their previous belief system, and enthusiastically encouraged others to do the same.
Now that Romney didn't win, what happens next? Will they continue to preach that Mormons and Catholics are ok, revise their Sunday school curriculum to take those faiths off the prosteltizing target list, and focus their indignation somewhere else? Will they go back to the beliefs they insisted on right up until the summer of 2012, and hope everyone forgets everything they said in the fall?
This is a pretty hefty doctrinal change for a large portion of Christianity, but the gravity of it seems to have been swept under the rug in the rush to partisanship. The election is over. Now what?Answer Question
