“I’d rather be ruled by a competent Turk than an incompetent Christian.”
Asked who he would support in the 2008 presidential race, a Southern Baptist friend of mine cited the statement above, made by Martin Luther, the protestant reformer who lived five centuries ago, as a partial basis for his decision.
In explaining his decision, my friend cited Jimmy Carter, also a Baptist, as the epitome of an incompetent Christian who served as president of the United States.
So who is the “competent Turk” my Baptist friend say he would support? Republican Mitt Romney, a Mormon.
