Pastor Calls Romney's Mormon Faith a 'Cult': Join the Live Chat

Reverend Robert Jeffress, an influential evangelical leader and megachurch pastor, is taking shots at Mitt Romney's faith. Today he called it a 'cult', while endorsing Romney's rival, Rick Perry. Pastor Jeffress also said the President governs by "un-Biblical principles". We'll ask the pastor about those comments. Plus, and "Occupy Wall Street" protesters coming under fire from lawmakers who worry the crowds will soon turn violent. Yet many of them praised the tea party for using many of the very same tactics. We're Keeping Them Honest.

Scroll down to join the live chat during the program. It's your chance to share your thoughts on tonight's headlines. Keep in mind, you have a better chance of having your comment get past our moderators if you follow our rules.

    Let the poor kid go home. These kids are miserable and depressed being bullied. It breaks my heart. Some kids can't take it and the outcome of that is tragic.

      I agree about letting them go home and they are miserable.
      But, how do they get an education? Maybe parents can organize "home" schooling. It then becomes rediculous to expect these parents to pay School Tax!

    I enjoyed the discussion around the Dallas Pastor who believes Mormonism is a cult. I do not believe that. Candidates should be judged on the merits of their ideas and have the religious freedom every American has or should have.

    I wish Anderson had more thoroughly introduced Bruce Feiler. Again thanks for the insightful discussion.
