MEDIA ADVISORY, Sept. 26 /Christian Newswire/ -- ChristiaNet.com, the world's largest Christian portal with twelve million monthly page loads, recently asked, "Would you elect a Mormon for president?" President of ChristiaNet, Bill Cooper, responds, "An overwhelming majority of Christians have spoken on the issue, they won't vote for a Mormon."
Out of 2,000 Christians surveyed, 59% claimed they would not vote to elect a Mormon for president. Most comments resulted from the belief that Mormonism is a cult, "The church of Mormonism is a cult and I would never vote for a cult leader." Most in this category also felt that Mormons were not Christians, "A Mormon is not a Christian, and they don't follow the Bible like Christians do." In fact, almost all responses in this category suggested that a Mormon's belief in Christ and God were contrary to a Christian's belief. "They believe in a different Jesus and a different God," is an example of one such comment.
Twenty six percent of participants said, "Yes, I would vote for a Mormon." This category of survey takers argued for the separation of church and state with comments like, "It doesn't matter what religion our president is, our constitution allows for the differences." Others noted that Mormons were Christians, so it was okay to elect one, "A Mormon believes in Christ just like we do." Some who were in support of electing a Mormon for president felt that as long as the candidate was qualified, they would vote for them, "If he is the best leader for our country, then I would vote for him."
Fifteen percent of participants were unsure whether or not they would vote for a Mormon. Many did not know much about the Mormon religion, "I am not sure what Mormons believe, so I can't answer that question." Some claimed that they would only vote for a Mormon if there were no other Christians running for the position," I guess if there were no other Christian candidates, then my next choice would have to be a Mormon." Still others said that their decision would be based solely on the other candidate choices, "It depends on the values of the other candidates and on the values of the Mormon."
To educate Christians on the topic of cults, ChristiaNet has just released a Free Cults Quiz. Using the latest interactive technology, one can test their Biblical knowledge on issues facing the Christian Community.
