Robert Jeffress, the pastor of the First Baptist Church in Dallas, made news last week when referring to Mormonism as a cult while introducing Texas Governor Rick Perry to the Values Voters Summit.
In the past couple of days, Jeffress is doing anything but backing away from his comments, saying on Sunday that "Part of a pastor's job is to warn his people and others about false religions. Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism and Mormonism are all false religions. And I stand by those statements."
My views on these various religions aside, this sort of rhetoric is distinctly unhelpful in reaching the goal that a majority of Americans now share: ending the Obama administration after one term.
