Here’s a situation that is highly symbolic of the tension within the religious right base of the Republican party over Mitt Romney’s religion. A Michigan pastor that appeared with Paul Ryan at a campaign event on Monday said earlier this year that Romney is not a Christian.
The pastor who delivered a passionate invocation at Paul Ryan’s rally in Rochester, Michigan on Monday evening told CNN earlier this year that the man at the top of the Republican ticket, Mitt Romney, is not a Christian…Clark spoke to CNN about Romney’s Mormon faith after a February rally for Santorum in Lansing.
Asked if he believes Romney is a Christian, Clark answered: “No.”
“Those if us who are Christians believe very strongly that God came to earth in the person of Jesus Christ and we base all our values around that,” Clark said. “And we believe that real change is a spiritual change from the inside out.”
You’d think they’d be a bit more careful about such appearances.
