This week Bob Jones III, chancelor of Bob Jones University, endorsed Mitt Romney for the Republican nomination for President. Jones was quoted as saying:
“This is all about beating Hillary,” Jones said. “And I just believe that this man has the credentials both personally and ideologically in terms of his view about what American government should be to best represent the rank and file of conservative Americans.
“If it turns out to be Guiliani and Hillary, we’ve got two pro- choice candidates, and that would be a disaster.”
On the issue of Romnney’s religion Jones said:
“What is the alternative, Hillary’s lack of religion or an erroneous religion?
As a Christian I am completely opposed to the doctrines of Mormonism,” he said. “But I’m not voting for a preacher. I’m voting for a president. It boils down to who can best represent conservative American beliefs, not religious beliefs.”
