View Full Version : O'Reilly: Evangelicals meeting on Friday to "deal with Romney"

I lurk on the Sean Hannity boards from time to time to understand the neocon group-think mentalities.

Pretty funny now how there is a big thread about Ron Paul there now. And a poll of Mitt vs. Ron if it came down to either of them vs. Obama that is decidedly in Ron's favor. Some of the members and the anti-Ron Paul mod are flipping out! ;)

Anyway, one of the threads had a pretty interesting topic that I feel it's my duty to share here:


Bill O'Reilly just mentioned that Evangelical Christians are meeting in Texas on Friday to come up with strategies to "deal with Romney" and agree on which Anti-Romney candidate to tell their congregations that they must support.

I'm not an Evangelical, so I'm not familiar with this Christianity/Politics mixture that they have going, but if you are an evangelical I would like to ask you a serious question. If the Evangelical Christians meeting in Texas decide that evangelicals must support...let's say Santorum, and you preacher gets in front of the congregation on Sunday and says "Jesus wants you to vote for Santorum," would that influence the way you vote?

My questions are:

1) How likely is it that Ron Paul would be their pick to be their anti-Romney?
2) And if Ron Paul is their pick, what effect do you think it would have on his chances?

Discuss! :D

Will be either Newt or Santorum.

This is the same National Evangelical Organization that helped Santorum in Iowa. They are huge and have tons of money. Very powerful group. Don't take them lightly.

One note: Being churches are non-profit status entities, the preacher can not openly say a candidates name from the pulpit to their congregation without penalty of losing non-profit status.
