Rev. Robert Jeffress endorses Mitt Romney and shared values

Last October, Rev. Robert Jeffress, a Baptist megachurch pastor and supporter of then-presidential candidate Rick Perry, launched a media firestorm of reaction and criticism when he belittled Mitt Romney’s presidential bid by referring to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints – to which Romney belongs – as a non-Christian cult.

On Sunday, Rev. Jeffress officially endorsed Mitt Romney for president because President Barack Obama “opposes Biblical principles.”

“I haven’t changed my tune,” Pastor Jeffress said. “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.”
