Allie Stuckey, The Conservative Millennial, has schooled Mitt Romney after the candidate for U.S. Senate in Utah called pastor Robert Jeffress a “religious bigot” for believing one of the most basic doctrines of Christianity.
Robert Jeffress says “you can’t be saved by being a Jew,“ and “Mormonism is a heresy from the pit of hell.” He’s said the same about Islam. Such a religious bigot should not be giving the prayer that opens the United States Embassy in Jerusalem.

Historic Christianity has taught for 2,000 years that salvation is through faith in Christ alone. The fact that I, along with tens of millions of evangelical Christians around the world, continue to espouse that belief, is neither bigoted nor newsworthy.

“Christianity is the most inclusive religion,” Stuckey said. “We’re the only religion based on grace, on a free gift of salvation for all who believe. Anyone can come to the Father through Christ, from the most evil murderer in the world to the person who’s tried all of his life to follow the rules.”
