Black minister urges Christians to support Romney

Bishop Harry R. Jackson, Jr. makes an interesting case here for his support of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. He urges Christians to vote for Romney, arguing:

  1. Even though Romney is a Mormon (not a Biblical Christian), God can use anyone he chooses.
  2. Romney holds Biblical positions on the important moral issues of our time.
  3. Romney possesses practical business wisdom, which has been a critical deficit among current political leaders.
  4. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. would urge us to look at the character of the candidates, and Romney passes that test.

Bishop Jackson, who holds an MBA from Harvard University, is senior pastor of Hope Christian Church, a 3,000-member congregation in the nation’s Capital. He also is founder and president of High Impact Leadership Coalition, which exists to protect the moral compass of America and be an agent of healing to our nation by educating and empowering churches, community and political leaders.

Jackson refers in this clip to two passages of scripture, 1 Kings 18 and Isaiah 45:1-6.
