My memo to conservative and evangelical leaders

Recently, high-powered Christian public-relations consultant Mark DeMoss sent a memo to unnamed conservative and evangelical leaders urging support of a non-evangelical, non-conservative candidate for the presidency in 2012.
Not really. DeMoss has long been enamored of Mitt Romney, having supported him enthusiastically for the Republican nomination in 2008.
The emphasis of DeMoss’ well-publicized memo was on creating “a new litmus test” for presidential candidates. And, indeed, support for Romney would require a new standard for committed evangelicals and conservatives – a much lower standard.
