Christian Coalition Officer Joins Romney Campaign

You can have it both ways. NewsMax reports that Drew McKissick, who was instrumental in pushing through South Carolina's gay marriage ban, has joined the Romney team as a paid "South Carolina grass roots adviser." This is significant because McKissick is an officer of the Christian Coalition, and an example of crossing theological barriers to promote common values.

From NewsMax:
"I started to go through this process a year ago," McKissick said of the endorsement. "It became obvious to me who was likely be the consensus conservative choice."
See Mr. McKissick's own announcement on Conservative Outpost.

While Latter-day Saints remain separate from mainstream Christianity, there are far more similarities
with conventional beliefs than there are differences. And Mormons espouse values that are virtually identical to all faiths who believe the Bible to be the Word of God.

It's refreshing to see people campaign on values instead of dogma, and on substance over rhetoric.
