|Otterson hits it out of the park|
Jun. 7th, 2011 at 3:39 pm
Recently an evangelical named Warren Cole Smith wrote a simply silly editorial about how evangelicals could not vote for a Mormon. Church Spokesman Michael Otterson wrote a simply fantastic reply in the Washington Post. See the article here http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/on-faith/post/evangelicals-mormons-and-the-beliefs-of-the-president/2011/06/07/AGnGX8KH_blog.html
The part that I agreed the most with was that Mormons are happy to vote for candidates of almost any religious flavor as long as they approve of the candidates positions and conduct themselves properly.
Currently I am represented by a conservative Episcopalian in Congress. My two senators are Church of Christ and Episcopalian and my Governor is a Methodist. I don’t think I have ever voted for a Mormon in my entire life for any elected office and I have been voting since 1992.
Contrast that with many of Warren Cole Smith’s comments and some of his evangelicals that feel the same way.
