A Baptist pastor named Jeffres stirred up a bit of a furor when he announced that Mitt Romney isn't a Christian "theologically," and a day later William Bennett blasted him for giving voice to bigotry. This issue has been the undertone of the GOP primaries since Mike Huckabee introduced it subtly during 2008. It may have defeated Romney, but it also blew back on Mr. Huckabee. I think it has been an unspoken part of the animosity of many in the Tea Party and Evangelical movements toward Romney. They claim that Romney is a flip-flopper while giving Rick Perry as pass on his past lapses.
