Should evangelicals support Mitt Romney?

I’ve seen several evangelical opinion columnists endorsing Mitt Romney lately. Personally, I don’t care that he’s Mormon. However, the timing of his “conversion” to the conservative cause is just too suspect. If he had made his conversion and run for president several years later after developing a strong social conservative record I’d have no qualms about voting for him. He has been socially conservative for the past 2 years–I’ll give him that. If he gets the nomination and runs as a solid conservative, not hiding the fact that he is pro-life and pro-family, I might be able to give him the benefit of the doubt and vote for him, although I’m very wary of giving a politician the benefit of the doubt.

    I like Mitt from a pragmatic perspective (seems to be better than Rudy and Fred) and I believe that he has truly had a change of heart on pro-life issues. All that said.. I am not all that excited about any of the candidates :(

    That makes two of us. At this point, though, I still think Fred’s the best choice.
