Pastor Who Called Mormonism a “Cult” Backs Mitt Romney

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.

Game over.
