Does Romney’s Mormonism Matter?

Does Mitt Romney’s Mormonism matter in his quest for the GOP nomination? Michael Gerson says no: Romney’s faith should not matter. Presidents are elected for their policy views, leadership skills and character, not their soteriology. Such theological convictions about salvation may be infinitely important, but they are politically irrelevant. The whole “no religious test for […]


Are Republicans Committing ‘Huckacide’?

I might have titled this post “The Most Viable Candidate for President, Part 2” because it continues the theme of my earlier post about Mitt Romney. Pro-lifers must take very seriously the question of a candidate’s viability in a general election. It’s not enough to win the popularity contest among primary voters. The best candidate […]


Wayne Grudem Supports Mitt Romney for President

People don’t usually turn to Wayne Grudem for advice about politics. He’s an evangelical theologian and scholar who has written what is perhaps the most widely used textbook on Systematic Theology among evangelicals. If you’ve got a question about any point of doctrine, Grudem is your go-to guy. Nevertheless, Grudem has just written a compelling […]

There are probably many Americans who do not understand why Mitt Romney has to “reach out” to the “Christian right” in his bid to become President of the United States.

Tom Tancredo sums up my sentiments better than I could myself: “Excuse me for being cynical but usually conversions occur on the road to […]


Doonesbury Lampoons Romney

Does Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney have the courage of his convictions? The comic strip Doonesbury doesn’t think so. As I have written before on this blog, he has a long way to go before he convinces pro-life voters that he is really pro-life. Right now, he appears to both liberals and conservatives as a rank […]


A Pro-lifer Hazards the GOP Field

Have you noticed that there is a lot of buzz surrounding Democrats who are running for President in 2008, but not much for the Republicans? One of the reasons for this uneven coverage is certainly that the Democrats are coming out early. But another reason is that conservatives are frankly not going ga-ga over any […]


Which candidate holds extreme views on abortion?

Going into the Democratic National Convention next week, the scuttlebutt is that the President will emphasize the abortion issue and will try to paint his opponent as extreme on abortion rights. I’m wondering if this is really the conversation that President Obama wants to have. I’m no shill for Governor Romney. As I’ve said many […]
