Pastor Supporting Santorum: Romney Not a Christian

CNN:

Kent Clark, the CEO of Grace Centers of Hope, a faith-based homeless outreach facility in Pontiac, warmed up the pro-Santorum audience by calling the former Pennsylvania senator “a man who believes in a creator rather than we being the accidental creation of gas and dust.”

After Santorum’s rally, Clark told CNN he is supporting Santorum because he is a person of faith who understands that social ills are best cured at the family level and not by “big government.”

Clark predicted that Romney’s Mormon faith will be a factor for Republicans in Tuesday’s Michigan primary, particularly in the western part of the state where evangelical Christians are expected to make up a larger share of the GOP vote.

Asked if he believes Romney is a Christian, Clark answered: “No.”

Asked whether Romney makes him want to throw up, Clark answered: “Yes.”

(Last sentence is satire, but just barely.)
