God’s Party

Here is an excerpt from my recent article with the Christian Science Monitor. For the full article follow the link below.

 

Now that Mitt Romney has officially secured enough delegates with his Texas primary victory to clinch the Republican nomination, Mormons seem like a block of voters the Republicans can count on come November. This isn’t just because Mr. Romney is Mormon.

It’s because the Republican Party is now securing support from voters of every major religion in theUnited States, with the exception of Islam.

For nearly three decades Christian Evangelicals have tended to be reliably Republican. (Today, 70 percent of white evangelical Protestants support the GOP.) But now Mormons, Jews, and Catholics are getting on board with the party in increasing numbers. If the GOP is able to consolidate the support of the major religions in the US, Romney and other Republican candidates stand to win big at the polling booth in 2012 and well beyond.

 Despite all the deficits the Republicans have to overcome, if they have “God in their corner,” they may very well prevail.
