This should be interesting. Excerpts have already been given to the press. Notably missing from the excerpts is Romney's frequent claim that all American religions flow from the same "Judeo-Christian" tradition. Some have criticized Romney for trying to tie his Mormon religion too closely to that of evangelicals and other Christians. (ABC News)

Dr. Albert Mohler hits a home run: “I do not believe that Mormonism leads to salvation. To the contrary, I believe that it is a false gospel that, however sincere and kind its adherents may be, leads to eternal death rather than to eternal life. Indeed, I believe that Mormonism is a prime example of what the Apostle Paul warned the Church to reject – "a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you" [Galatians 1:8-9]. And thus I must end where I began. Mormonism is not just another form of Christianity – it is incompatible with "traditional Christian orthodoxy." But he also notes “The debate has never been about whether Mormons are good Americans or would make good neighbors. I dare say that most American Evangelicals and traditional Roman Catholics would find more in common with Mormons in terms of child-rearing, sexual morality, the protection of marriage and family, and a host of other issues, than they would with liberal Catholics or liberal Protestants.” (
