Bible Battles On The Campaign Trail

I couldn’t quite believe this when I saw it, but here it is: Brownback staffer’s e-mail stirs controversy over Romney’s Mormonism anew (hat tip: Political Pale Horse)

WASHINGTON – A staffer for Sen. Sam Brownback’s presidential campaign circulated an e-mail last week that raised questions critical of Republican opponent Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith.
    Brownback says today that he plans to personally call Romney and the leadership of the LDS Church to apologize.
    Emma Nemecek, the southeast field director for Brownback’s Iowa efforts, sent the email to a dozen people last week asking if they knew whether “any of these [issues are] inaccurate.”
    The list included a sentence that says “the only thing Christianity and the LDS Church has in common is the name of Jesus Christ, and the LDS Jesus is not the same Jesus of the Christian faith.”
    It also said that “those who claim that [the] LDS [faith] is a Christian denomination don’t know Mormon or Christian theology.”

Not the same Jesus?

Well….My Jesus can beat up your Jesus!
