The Evangelical Vote, 2012

While some evangelical leaders express concern about “promoting” Mormonism by supporting Mitt Romney, he seeks to downplay the particulars of his faith, and many rank-and-file evangelicals say they are not focusing on his religion so much as on his general orientation. Divisions also exist in relation to Newt Gingrich and his moral history. And although Rick Santorum receives more evangelical support for his religious and moral orientation, concerns exist over his ability to win the presidency. In an eight-minute report by correspondent Kim Lawton, prepared for Religion & Ethics NewsWeekly, Warren Cole Smith, associate publisher of the Christian newsmagazine World, questioned the basic Christianity of Mormonism. View his extended comments here.  Mormon Joanna Brooks, also quoted in the news video, is a senior correspondent for the interfaith online magazine ReligionDispatches.org. In extended comments, she offers her perspective on Mormonism, Romney and the 2012 evangelical vote.
