On the heels of Al Sharpton’s prediction that “those that really believe in God” will defeat Mitt Romney, comes this from Bill “the Dr. Phil of Prayer” Keller of LivePrayer (emphasis added):
If you vote for Mitt Romney, you are voting for satan! This message today is not about Mitt Romney. Romney is an unashamed and proud member of the Mormon cult founded by a murdering polygamist pedophile named Joseph Smith nearly 200 years ago. The teachings of the Mormon cult are doctrinally and theologically in complete opposition to the Absolute Truth of God’s Word. There is no common ground. If Mormonism is true, then the Christian faith is a complete lie. There has never been any question from the moment Smith’s cult began that it was a work of satan and those who follow their false teachings will die and spend eternity in hell. This message is about the top Christian leaders in our nation who are supporting this cult members quest to become the next President of the United States.
The only thing that surprises me about Sharpton’s announcement and Keller’s rant is that anyone is surprised by it.Â Â Evangelicals, especially the dominionists/fundamentalists, have attacked groups such as the Mormons as being “cults” for years. Â The Southern Baptists are especially hostile towards religious minorities such as the Mormons.
