Some Christians OK With Romney, Not His Faith

MIAMI (AP) -- Some evangelicals who don't believe Mormons are
Christians think Mitt Romney could be a good president anyway.

The Rev. Brandon Park, pastor of Wayside Baptist Church in Miami, says he considers biblical values on issues like abortion more important than a candidate's religious denomination.

Park says he likes both Romney and the Texas Gov. Rick Perry, an
evangelical. And while a Mormon president wouldn't be Park's preference he believes there's a difference between electing a
president and selecting a pastor.

Church member Bonnie King-Moran also draws a distinction between
her Christian beliefs and the Mormon faith, but says "Mitt Romney is a wonderful person in his way."

Evangelicals' views on Mormonism matter because they comprise a
large percentage of Republican primary voters.

Romney and fellow Mormon Jon Huntsman skipped a weekend forum of presidential candidates hosted by Christian conservatives in Iowa.
