Let me explain this reaaaaalllly slow for you so you understand.

JimRob is the one who ‘decided’ — the brouhaha is over the last paragraph in his article at the beginning of this thread. And it was people like you who got into an uproar over mormonism being called a cult, even though there have been mormonism threads on FR for a decade. Where were you when these threads were posted?

I am going to be blatantly honest here: no one really cared about your anti-mormon conspiracy theories disguised as christian identity issues when they were buried in the Religion forum.

The Religion forum sidebar is not readily accessed from FR's homepage. You have to do some stuff to make it show up. People can discuss conservative issues, activism, and news posts for over a decade without viewing a single Religion thread.

We're supposed to be united in conservatism and not nitpicking each others' different religions since we're supposed to be pro-G-d and pro-life here as part of all the things that make up the conservative political movement.

When the bigotry migrated from the Religion forum to News/Activism forum is when the trouble started. You don't like Romney? Debate his platform, his past, his voting record, etc. with other conservatives.

But when you make it about Romney's RELIGION in the BREAKING NEWS SECTION of the highest traffic conservative website completely unchecked and not moderated, you just labeled ALL of us conservative Freepers as bigots to the outside world.

Take the anti-Mormon conspiracy theory stuff back to the Religion forums where it belongs. Stop posting it in any News/Activism thread mentioning a Mormon like petulant children throwing temper tantrums.

First, they aren’t anti-mormon, they’re anti-mormonism. Second, if it were the lunatics who made it about anti-mormons, that makes you folks the lunatics.

Strawman argument and factually untrue.

You cannot separate Jews from Judaism.

You cannot separate Mormons from Mormonism.

You cannot separate Catholics from Catholicism.

You cannot separate Christians from Christianity.

You cannot separate Protestants from Protestantism.

You cannot separate Evangelicals from Evangelical Christianity.

It is an intellectual fallacy to do so. Go argue it in the Religion forums and NOT in News/Activism. You've been told countless times this is a Judeo-Christian values site.

Bigotry? That’s funny. The entire Mormon religion was constructed out of thin air by an anti-Christian bigot.

***Then you admit it. These threads have been going on for a long time and this is your first one. The only real reason why you care is because now there’s a mormon GOP candidate.

We’re supposed to be united in conservatism and not nitpicking each others’ different religions since we’re supposed to be pro-G-d and pro-life here as part of all the things that make up the conservative political movement.
***Then take that up on the religious forum, where such subjects have been going on for over a decade. Oh, wait, you neglected to do so. How is that OUR problem?

When the bigotry migrated from the Religion forum to News/Activism forum is when the trouble started. You don’t like Romney? Debate his platform, his past, his voting record, etc. with other conservatives.
***You’re going round & round in circles on this one. Recall that I wrote: JimRob is the one who ‘decided’ — the brouhaha is over the last paragraph in his article at the beginning of this thread. And it was people like you who got into an uproar over mormonism being called a cult, even though there have been mormonism threads on FR for a decade. Where were you when these threads were posted?

***That is something to take up with JimRob. We lowly freepers have no bearing on such decisions. Geez, you’re getting more shrill by the minute.

***Wow, and that was in HUGE Red Font, too. You really are getting more shrill by the minute. Let me explain this reaaaaalllly slow for you so you understand: This is JimRob’s forum. It was his decision to put it in breaking news. Take it up with him. We lowly freepers had nothing to do with it. You didn’t even ping JimRob. Please try to show some semblance of intelligence in your approach to this issue.

You cannot separate Jews from Judaism.
***Converted jews call themselves Messianic jews, also ‘completed jews’. You’re kinda right about that, as far as I can tell, unless some weird jew converts to islam or something like that.

You cannot separate Mormons from Mormonism.
***Sure you can. There are FReepers right here who have done this.

You cannot separate Catholics from Catholicism.
***Sure you can. I’ve seen it in my own family.

You cannot separate Christians from Christianity.
***I’ve seen it. It makes me wonder how deep the person’s christianity was, but I’ve seen professing christians move to other faiths.

You cannot separate Protestants from Protestantism.
***Sure you can. Newt Gingrich is an example.

You cannot separate Evangelicals from Evangelical Christianity.
***Sure you can. I’ve seen it.

It is an intellectual fallacy to do so. Go argue it in the Religion forums and NOT in News/Activism.
***Why don’t you? I don’t see you arguing it over there. Oh, right, that’s because you didn’t care enough to, at least until this article showed up. Besides, it is not us lowly freepers who decide which forum it goes into. It was JimRob’s decision. Take it up with him.

You’ve been told countless times this is a Judeo-Christian values site.
***You admit to having no clue about these kinds of articles taking place over a decade on FR, and then you presume to browbeat FReepers into your own brand of politically correct tolerance? Who do you think YOU are? What kind of shrill bowlsheet is this, anyways? You’re the problem here.

Mormonism is certainly worthy of attack, and I encourage it greatly for the sake of those who are trapped in it. Free Republic has served me well as a fantastic resource when battling/converting Mormons. It is a religious cult.

The great problem here is that you are not interested in “truth,” but only in appearances. Therefore, it makes no difference to you if someone is a Mormon or a Muslim or Jewish or a scientologist or a Catholic or a Protestant. However, for a Christian, we are specifically commanded by God to preach the truth “to all nations,” and this “truth,” naturally, causes strife. But if you are a person who admires the search and battle for truth, what does it matter what personal feelings are inflamed in a discussion of the facts? Especially on a internet FORUM, which by definition is a place to talk? And can you tell me about any Fact in this world that can change based on the personal feelings of others?
