Iowans sign pledge not to abuse faith during political campaigns Iowans sign pledge not to abuse faith during political campaigns

Date: February 9, 2012

 

Twenty-three Iowans are among more than 1,000 religious people nationwide who have signed a “Faith and Election pledge,” which says they won’t abuse faith this election season.
 
The pledge was developed in the wake of attacks on former Massaschusetts Gov. Mitt Romney’s Mormon faith and the recent condemnation of President Barack Obama for quoting scripture at the National Prayer Breakfast, organizers said. The pledge is sponsored by Sojourners, based in Washington, D.C., which is a national network of Christians concerned about social justice issues.
