Jon, I posted this on my FB page!
Jeffress was irrelevant then and remains irrelevant now.For the record, according to a recent Pew poll,Democrats show the greatest negative response with 31 percent saying they would be less likely to support a Mormon, while Republicans and Independents fall at 23 percent and 20 percent respectively.Heh heh. Who are the bigots?http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/06/03/poll-mormonism-homosexuality_n_871131.html[For the record, this Republican favors Mitt Romney as the Least Scary Republican, and endorses him fully over Barack Obama, whose presidency he finds thoroughly disappointing for reasons that we need not address here on a history blog.]
As a Mormon, I take offense to the arrogance of others who feel the need to question just how "Christian" I am/am not. But, I will also be the first to say that I agree with Jeffress. Our "Christianity" isn't the same. I reject the traditional Trinity, infallibility of the Bible, etc., etc., etc. (Please don't weigh in, OFT). I think Pastor Jeffress needs to learn how to disagree with other "Christians" without questioning their Christianity. But Tom is right, Jeffress isn't all that relevant, no matter how hard he tries to be.
