I just purchased and read through the French's pro-Romney book, in the course of the past hour. Frankly, despite my undergraduate studies in politics, I have never plowed through a political tract before. What this couple offers is a powerful evangelical Christian argument that not only allows me to proclaim loudly, "It's Mitt!"--but to do so with, err...evangelical fervor!
In this presentation we learn first that Presidents are not pastors, not evangelists, and not very influential at all, in the spiritual realm. Mitt will be a powerful leader, but will not likely usher one soul into a Mormon temple--certainly not an evangelical one!
More important to most, Mitt will bring us a comprehensive conservatism. Unlike most predecessors though, Romney knows how to implement policies in the face of tremendous liberal opposition. He actually gets stuff done, rather than just preaching from the political pulpit. Even "Romneycare" was an attempt to hold off a much worse liberal Democrat proposal for his state--an effort that proved mostly popular with his constituents.
The authors demonstrate convincingly that President Romney will promote a solid, sincere pro-life, pro-family, pro-traditional marriage agenda. His conversion from more liberal stances in the past is authentic and wholly believable. Coupled with this, Mitt is dedicated to religious liberty and freedom of conscience.Read more ›
The book takes us through their paradigm shift of determining that not only is it acceptable to support someone not of their belief system who shares their values but also determining that for them, Mitt Romney is the best qualified candidate in the field. They share their experiences of forming their blog 'Evangelicals for Mitt.org'; the comments from readers, both positive and negative, both from Non Mormons and Mormons alike. They address the issue of what a President Romney might do towards advancing the agenda of the Mormon church. They address Governor Romney's Romney's supposed flip-flops and his positions on all the major social and economic issues including gay marriage, abortion, RomneyCare vs. ObamaCare, and what he really did while working for Bain Capital.
There is also a very personal side to their story as Nancy shares her first experience "skiing" (or something like that) in Utah with the Romneys. David shares his feelings and observations about Mormons in general as he expresses his appreciation for the Mormon commitment to social issues he holds dear.
Throughout the book they make it absolutely clear that they are first and foremost Evangelicals. They are not interested in promoting the Mormon church nor would they want Governor Romney to be their pastor. But as they state many times, "We are not electing a Pastor-in-Chief.Read more ›
- Make the point that we are voting for a President, not a pastor.
- Make a great case that Romney's statements nearly two decades ago do not reflect his current views or how he actually governed
- Make a great case that he has shown conservative credentials even in the face of pressure and has done so consistently.
- I understand they consider Mormons friends and don't want to (my words) "put on airs" by presuming to be better than them and example of Christ, on the other hand, we are supposed to be witnesses to everyone we meet so some of their statements in this regard rub me the wrong way.
- I get that some people on Right or other Christians have been nasty to them, but is it really true that there is no one like that who is also a Mormon? The praise is a little thick at times.
A great and short read. They lay out a great case for why Romney is a consistent conservative and why Christians should feel no guilt about supporting him. The writing is well-done and to the point. They also model how people of different faiths can come together and work for a common goal. If we all could do that, we could be a mighty force for change in this country. A great read and while I won't say I'm "excited" to support Romney, I can certainly say that I "feel good about it", am confident in his conservatism, and that he would make not just an okay, but a great President.
