Anti-Bubba, I joined FR to discuss politics. I certainly didn’t come to discuss religion, but when I joined FR I was also a baby Christian, one who had found Christ after a lifetime as a Mormon. I was soooo excited.
Imagine my dismay when I found out that FR was being used as a proselyting tool for Mormonism.
My very first post about Mormonism was on the New/activism page on a thread a Mormon posted about the wonderful growth of their religion - most of which was just an outright lie.
I simply said, “they count me (as a member), I don’t count them.”
I don’t know if you were around at the time, but some of the Mormon posters here said really negative things about my character like: “You just want to sin,” “Couldn’t cut the mustard?” “You are a liar to call yourself a Mormon”....etc. etc.
I decided right then and there to post what I know about the Mormon religion, and how it differs from Christianity. It isn’t that I hate individual Mormons. I’ve mentioned it a few thousand times on FR that my husband, my mother, my brother, my in-laws, my neighbors, my friends are Mormon.
If Mormons are allowed to post about their Mormonism, why should I not be allowed to post about my Christianity and how I came to be a Christian and how it differs from Mormonism. Do you think I should just STHU and let Mormons tell a one-sided story or outright lie to Freepers in the hopes that they will get converts from the good conservative Christians here.
Well, God doesn’t. He demands that I speak. JimRob allows it. He is a good Christian man. I too asked for a voice here. I asked that my speech not be silenced, and as long as I obey RM or JimRobs rules, I am allowed to do so. It is a tactic of the left to call opposing opinions “hate.” You should ask yourself why the Mormons do it.

I first noticed this MO of Romney supporters in 2007. It was a marked proclivity, almost a marker, it was so consistent.
In Realville, voting for liberals guarantees bad outcomes. Romney is a liberal registered as a Republican. Voting for him is nuts. I don't care what Palin or Rush or Levin or anyone else says. You reap what you sow. I'm voting for a plurality to weaken whichever liberal wins.
