Former Rick Perry backer Pastor Robert Jeffress, senior pastor of Dallas’ First Baptist Church, is now supporting Mitt Romney for President, he told a Texas radio station.
This is the same Pastor Robert Jeffress who grabbed headlines last fall when he stormed into the Values Voter Summit and proclaimed that Mormonism was a “cult.”
(An act which, as it turns out, may have been publicity stunt to drive Jeffress’ book sales.)
The most vocally anti-Mormon evangelical public figures are leaving the barricades.
Partisanship trumps sectarianism.
