What we've been tweeting

From the news yesterday:

Some black clergy see no good presidential choice between a Mormon candidate and one who supports gay marriage, so they are telling their flocks to stay home on Election Day. That’s a worrisome message for the nation’s first African-American president, who can’t afford to lose any voters from his base in a tight race.

The pastors say their congregants are asking how a true Christian could back same-sex marriage, as President Barack Obama did in May. As for Republican Mitt Romney, the first Mormon nominee from a major party, congregants are questioning the theology of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and its former ban on men of African descent in the priesthood. The Mormon church lifted the ban in 1978, and the church has repeatedly condemned racism.

Tweet: Black evangelicals suddenly sour on NARAL AAA-rated black pol over gay marriage. mmm-K.

Don't want to get into the litmus test game and not to go all single issue but considering dude refused to vote for an abortion survivor law while he was a state senator in Illinois, we'd question your evangelical chops if you supported this guy.
