At creationism museum, visitors exhibit strong faith in Romney


Mr. McGonigal, a Baptist from Pennsylvania, says that his belief very much colours his voting preferences. “It’s important that our leaders adhere to biblical principles,” he said. “That’s the only way they can be moral men.”

For him, that means voting for Mitt Romney.

“But does the fact that Mr. Romney is a Mormon trouble you?” I asked him, referring to the candidate’s faith in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

“Yes, it does trouble me,” he replied. “I wish he had accepted Jesus Christ as his saviour.” (Mormons believe that Jesus was a teacher whose exemplary behaviour should be followed, but that later prophets and writings, such as the 19 th– century Book of Mormon, also offer truths to be followed.)

“But I believe that his beliefs align more with the Bible than [Barack] Obama’s do,” Mr. McGonigal said. “That’s good enough for me.”
