Theological Cognitive Dissonance at Work

by Andre E. Johnson

In response to a recent post I made on conservative evangelicals and Mormons, here is an example of the struggle that some conservative evangelicals are currently going through or what I call theological cognitive dissonance. The first clip is Pastor Robert Jeffries who at the Values Voter Summit this year declared the Mormonism is a cult. The second clip is Jeffries pledging his support for Mitt Romney. It is interesting to see how he rhetorical constructs reasons to support Romney which are totally at odds with his faith; a faith which as we see earlier, demands that he supports someone who is "Christian."
