Famed Christian Apologist Is Voting for Romney

Many of my fellow evangelicals will recognize Dr. Norman L. Geisler.  A seminary president, a skilled debater, a forceful pro-life advocate, and an author of innumerable books on theology, apologetics and the cults (including Mormonism), Geisler is a theological conservative who has, for decades, been one of America's most effective defenders of the Christian faith.

Norm Geisler uploaded this observation on his Facebook page this morning.

Should a Christian Vote for a Mormon?

We are not voting for a cult; we are voting for a candidate. If the person is pro-life, pro-family, pro-American , pro-free market, and pro-Israel, then vote for him regardless of his religious affiliation. If I need a good doctor or a good attorney, I don’t ask about his personal convictions but about his professional competency. Martin Luther once wisely said, “I would rather be ruled by a competent Turk than an incompetent Christian." In this election the call between the candidates is not even close. I am voting for Romney.

Geisler has more about his decision on his web page right here.
