To Hell With Romney

Via Christopher Orr at The Plank, it was interesting to discover that not all the conservative evangelical Christians who hate Mitt Romney's religion are keeping those views to themselves. Florida televangelist Bill Keller, in an email reportedly sent out to a 2.4 million-member subscription list, made this measured comment, among others, about the consequences of voting for the Mittster:

"Those who follow the false teachings of this cult, believe in the false jesus of the Mormon cult and reject faith in the one true Jesus of the Bible, will die and spend eternity in hell," he charges. "Romney getting elected president will ultimately lead millions of souls to the eternal flames of hell!"

Placing "jesus" in lower-case when referencing the deity of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints was a truly original touch, eh?

Keller also suggested that Pat Robertson was "out of his mind" for inviting Romney to speak at Regents University.

So things ought to get pretty interesting in Christian Right circles between now and next year, what with some leaders endorsing the Mittster, and at least one suggesting he's herding millions of souls straight to hell.

UPDATE: Satan seems to have opened up a branch office in New Hampshire recently, if you believe various polls showing His Infernal Majesty's designee, Mitt Romney, surging in the Granite State.

UPDATE II: Beware the wiles of the Unholy One. As Garance Franke-Ruta notes at TAPPED, Romney's campaign is circulating a flyer in Iowa that comments extensively on his tall, sturdy bod and much-praised coiff, and concludes: "Women--who will play a critical role in this coming election--have a word for him: hot." Yep. Hot as hell.
