There are nuts in every religion.
Wait until Catholics/Christians hear the things that that romney believes about Jesus, Mary, God the Father,..... that will make them angry.
“several attempts to Baptize Mohammed”
What, the water refused to receive him?
I’m Catholic and I’m not angry at Romney regarding his religion. And I can safely say that about all the Catholics I know,.
Why in the world does anybody care what a flaky cult does in its jujube ceremonies?
They can’t “baptize” anybody who’s dead, and in fact Christian churches do not even consider Mormon baptisms of living people to be true baptisms, so what’s the big deal?
I’m actually more worried about Romney’s apparent conviction that he is the fulfillment of some Mormon “prophecy.” We’ve got too many people running around right now who see themselves as the fulfilment of some non-Christian cult’s prophecies, be they Muslims or Mormons.
I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to go to a Heaven that let Mo in.
Not that I was ever going to convert, anyway, but if I had been considering it, this would have killed it for me.
I guess it didn’t take.
I guess it didn’t take.
Didn’t Jesus himself teach Christians to pray for those who persecute them and offered forgiveness to those who crucified him as he was dying n the cross? If Mormons want to do something similar so what. These pious acts are far preferable than for Muslims to declare death and vengeance against someone who may have “offended” their religion with a cartoon or “desecrated” their Koran.
I guess it didn’t take.
A good friend of mine, Catholic from the day she was born, isn't exactly angry at Romney for his beliefs. She just thinks he and all Mormons are certifiably nuts.
All of this primary consternation is off focus. The only question at this point is; ‘which one can defeat Zero?’ We can equitably work out the small stuff after he is history.
I hardly think Romney and his liberalism are small stuff; nor do I think it’s “off focus” to try and make sure we get a conservative as our nominee.
I look at how person lives his personal life. His family and how he treats his spouse. So do they.
Do you believe that a person can be a decent and productive citizen and be a Mormon at the same time?
D0 you know Christans who can spout off the Bible chapter and verse but are anything but Christian in how they lead their lives?
I don’t buy the claim that some Mormons aren’t familiar with their church doctrine. Isn’t it one’s responsibility to become thoroughly familiar with one’s own religion?
What does decency and productivity have to do with anything? Why introduce these strawmen? Did I say anything about Mormons being scum, or Mormons not working for a living? (Although, let’s be factual, some of those multiple wives in the fundamentalist sects ARE fraudulently collecting food stamps and welfare benefits).
Why are you upset? Do you know anything about Mormon beliefs, and how they contradict Scripture and Christianity?
Have you seen the pic, posted here on FR, of Romney with his magic underwear showing underneath his shirt? Sheesh.
I bet I know more about Mormonism than you do.
I’m upset? Look in the mirror. You wrap all Mormons up in one neat package.
Well, it isn't a contest, is it? I assume you know they believe Jesus is the brother of Satan; Jesus is not divine; God used to be a man; they will inherit their own planet and become gods in their own right, etc. There's nothing to defend there, and I'm sure you'd agree.
Im upset? Look in the mirror. You wrap all Mormons up in one neat package."
Yes, you seemed pretty agitated. And yes, believing what they believe is nuts.
Look in the mirror again. I’m calm about the subject of Mormonism. You are the absolutist.
Ask your Catholic friend if she knows that many Protestant sects think Catholicism is a cult and that transubstantiation is nutty.
What does absolutism have to do with not being calm, K? You’re not making a lot of sense.
My Catholic friend has it right, and she would laugh at your ham-handed attempt at starting a Protestant-Catholic flame war. Maybe you, as a Catholic, should study on what your own church teaches about the Mormon cult, and stop defending beliefs that contradict the word of God.
You should be ashamed of yourself.
I should be ashamed of myself? For saying I won’t condemn all Mormons with a broad stroke and call them names ?
Maybe you should practice some of your Christian compassion and charity. If you have any.
K, I don't care how upset you are, that's no excuse for you deliberately misrepresenting what I've said here.
Again, go find out what your church teaches about the Mormon cult. And stop defending beliefs which try to make God a liar. They're without defense, and for someone who says they are a Christian to do so is quite shameful.
I know what the Mormon Church says.
I was aware of every fact that you posted.
As A Catholic I also know what people say about my church.
I also know you are an unChristian like name caller.
I never heard anything about "anger" so I'm not sure what you were posting about, but the Pope would sure tell you that Mormons do not practice Christianity.
You should remember that as you contribute to their efforts to destroy Christian souls, and Catholics are among their easiest prey. It is baffling to see how many people first announce loudly that they are Catholic, and then proceed to defend Mormonism.
See post three. I was responding to that person. The word “angry” is in that post. It wasn’t my word.
I’m defending people who are Mormon. I’m certainly not going to convert. I’m not prey for any other religion. Good lord let’s not get histrionic
It is an old routine here, the “Catholic” loudly proclaims I AM CATHOLIC as they fight tooth and nail in defense of Mormonism against Christian resistance.
The Vatican position on Mormonism never means anything to those “Catholic” Mormon apologists.
This is very common here, GOP_Lady was almost an exact copy of you.
Who is GOP-Lady and did she convert?
Never mind. I searched that Freeper and I see she was banned. An exact copy? Have you read all our posts and compared?
I’m not an apologist. I just don’t condemn and name call en masse.
You mimic her style in service to Mormonism while you mock and denigrate the Catholic church and it’s teachings, and even it’s members as you pretend to represent “about all the Catholics I know”.
LOL, now I see that you are even female like her.
Have a nice evening.
Mormonism is full of nuts. You have to be crazy to really believe it for very long.
Im Catholic and Im not angry at Romney regarding his religion.
- - - -
Then you are not paying attention. And I know a lot of Catholics who hate and fight Mormonism because Mormon theology spits on Christ.
You know, if Romney promises half the conservative stuff he claims in his campaigns, he’d be one hell of a president.
Do I believe him.
Of course not.
They cant baptize anybody whos dead, and in fact Christian churches do not even consider Mormon baptisms of living people to be true baptisms, so whats the big deal?
- - - - -
How would you feel if someone urinated/defecated on your parents (or any beloved ancestor’s grave), then posted it online? It is the same thing.
Mormons act as a proxy, use the persons name and go through or perform these rituals. They literally believe they are acting as saviors to these people.
You must be kidding!!
Ok, I am confused. Are you saying a few nutty mormons did this dead dunk? Sorry sweetie dead dunking is in part of how lds get their own planet, all temple mormons dead dunk.
Didnt Jesus himself teach Christians to pray for those who persecute them and offered forgiveness to those who crucified him as he was dying n the cross? If Mormons want to do something similar so what.
- - - - -
Because it is NOT similar. This isn’t praying for those who persecute Mormons, rather the Mormons slit their throats or sent out assassins in the early days, now they file lawsuits, issue death threats, vandalize, etc. They don’t offer forgiveness to anyone who leaves, just ask other ex-mo’s.
This is Mormons going through these (rather lame and) elaborate rituals acting AS THE PERSON. In order to even to that, which is only open to about 15%, they must jump through all these hoops to be spiritually worthy and pass all these tests. Once they do that and obtain a Temple Recommend, then they ACT AS CHRIST by saving these people because you cannot be saved without these specifically Mormon rites.
BTW, Mormons also reject the cross and often come back with “well if Jesus was beheaded would you wear a guillatine around your neck?” To them the cross was only because he had to die simply to be resurrected, it has nothing really to do with salvation (except when they define salvation ONLY as resurrection which is universal).
Maybe you should learn what mormonism teaches about Catholics.
A Mormon planet Ponzi scheme?
Huh? So how does Romney treat his wife or his kids or his dog? Learn about mormonism before you defend it.
I’ll do that right after I study what the Protestants have to say about us.
Based on what you have said not only do you know nothing or mormonism you know nothing of the Bible.
Or you are a typical mormon lying for the lords.
I’m a Newt supporter and have contributed to his campaign but Mitt treated his dog better than Newt treated his wives.
Well I married a Lutheran and in the beginning you would have thought he brought home a 3 headed monster.
Lots of religious hate and self righteous in all denominations.
Really? Romney tied his dog to the roof of his car for 12 hours.
Gingrich was 16 when he met his first wife, she was 24. They married when he just turned 18. After about a decade SHE asked for a divorce, they were separated for two years when he met his second wife. The first wife asked him to bring the divorce papers to the hospital, after her surgery she DID NOT have cancer.
He met his third wife after a separation from the second wife, (which by the way everyone who knew them said she was nuts).
He married his current wife, became a repented man and converted to Catholicism.
Sorry sweetie as a Gingrich supporter you should have known this about both Gingrich and Romney.
So the question remains are you really a mormon pretending to be a Catholic.
