Back in October, prominent Baptist pastor Robert Jeffress got himself some attention with his introduction of Rick Perry at the Value Voters Summit. There, he called Perry a "conservative out of deep conviction" while referring to Mitt Romney as "a conservative out of convenience." Later, he took it a big step further by calling Mormonism "a cult." But, now that Perry is a distant nightmare, Jeffress has made an unsurprising tune-change. The pastor told the AP that he's endorsing Romney "in spite of his Mormon faith," because basically even a flip-floppy cultist is better than Barack Obama.
