Conservative Christians right now in America would rather vote for Mitt Romney, who belongs to a religion they consider a cult and openly make vicious fun of, because he has conservative values, than vote for Obama, who belongs to the United Church of Christ, who don’t actually believe anything weird at all. Because he believes he represents all Americans, not just certain specific types of rich white Christian and is himself, black is a “liberal”.
