The EFM Feature

Even more important details are coming to light regarding Paul Weyrich’s endorsement of Governor Romney.
As you may recall, over the course of the campaign Mr. Weyrich had expressed suspicion over Governor Romney’s views and record on social issues. The Boston Globe called him up to ask him about it, and he told them, “I was satisfied that his conversion was a sincere one.” He added, “I think he’s going to not only stay in those positions, but also is going to fight for them.”
He also made another point relevant to evangelicals: “I’ve been pointing out to people we’re not electing him to be head of the theology department of a Baptist university; we’re electing him in a secular context. Were it in a religious context, I would be very much opposed to him, because I don’t agree with his religion, but it’s not relevant in my opinion.”
