Richard Mouw on Romney and Mormonism

Last week a prominent SBC pastor in Texas demanded his congregation cast their votes for Rick Perry rather than Mitt Romney (apparently Obama wasn't on the list of possibilities) because Romney is a Mormon. 

Today, Richard Mouw, President of Fuller Theological Seminary, gives a very good response.  It's good to see a prominent Evangelical speaking highly of ecumenical relationships.  As expected, Mouw stops short of completely validating Mormonism, but he does bring a bit of sense to the discussion, citing the genuine devotion to Christ he has seen in Mormon leaders he has worked with.  Read about it here.
