With #Ryan pick, #Romney solidifies the #UnholyAlliance - Mormons, Catholics, evangelicals

Back in 2010, I wrote about how Mormons, Catholics, and evangelical Protestants had united - despite each teaching that the others are not true Christians - to work toward a common political goal: banning same-sex marriage.

With the pick of Catholic Paul Ryan, Mormon Mitt Romney has declared that there is a larger goal: taking over the political power structure of the country. If they are to win, they will need the backing of evangelicals. And if they do, it will certainly herald an era where holiness is right next to politicization. (If that era has not yet arrived already.)
