Perry Refused to Repudiate Pastor

Rick Perry refused to disavow a Dallas pastor who called Mormonism a cult, the AP reports.

Perry announced his decision through a spokesman after Mitt Romney called on Perry to repudiate Rev. Robert Jeffress, who said Romney was not really a Christian.

Howard Kurtz: "Will the press keep pounding away at this anti-Mormon outburst? Why, 50 years after JFK broke the Catholic barrier, is a candidate's religion again emerging as a major issue?"
