Jean Branson's letter (The Daily News, April 25) referenced Mitt Romney as "a real Christian and Mormon."

He professes to be a Mormon, but a Christian? On Nov. 10, 2013, the Mormon Church published an essay on LDS.org entitled, "Are Mormons Christians?" In this essay, the LDS Church admits it rejects the Christian creeds that have historically defined Christianity. Joseph Smith went so far as to say in his First Vision account, recorded at History 1:19 of Pearl of Great Price LDS Scripture, that he was told to join "none" of the Christian churches of his day because "they were all wrong; and the Personage who addressed me said that all their creeds were an abomination in his sight; that those professors were all corrupt."

Mormons teach Jesus is the brother of Lucifer. Colossians 1:15-18: Jesus is the Creator of "all things." Being fully God, Jesus created the angel Lucifer. Apostle Paul warned against the one who "preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached."

If LDS rejects the Christian creeds, why would one assume he is "a real Christian?"
