Mormon bishop's daughter spills Romney's 'secrets' ...

'Would you trust the judgment of a man if he truly believes he's gonna be a god?' "If the American people knew what he truly believed, they would surely not place him in the highest office in the land."

"While he attempts to portray Mormonism as just another Christian religion, Mitt Romney counts on his skills to shift our attention away from what he truly believes," says Tricia Erickson, author of "Can Mitt Romney Serve Two Masters? The Mormon Church Versus the Office of the Presidency of the United States of America."

this is why we can’t have this rino as our nominee, if the LDS church has any sense they’ll talk him out of it.

Romney might believe that he can become a god, but that asshat in our White House believes he already IS a god.

Such petty crap that was not for a minute used against Obambozo. I understand that someone asked Perry for his medical records . . . would like to get that from the last to sickos who lived in our White House. Too bad Perry doesn’t tell them to go to hell!

facts are not hysteria.

Mormons are taught that God and Jesus were once ordinary people like us.
(and, that God literally had sex with Mary)

and that they, after death, will literally become Gods themselves, ruling over their own “planet”.

...Would you care if we had a Muslim president,
who believed that all Christians go to Hell,
and that women’s opinion and vote, only counts
half that of a man’s ?

discussing the core beliefs of your future president,
is hysteria?

Personally, I think it’s Mittens who is trying to fan this into an issue. It’s not working, people don’t dislike Mitt because he’s Mormon, they dislike him because he’s unstable.

From the article...Erickson says Romney believes:

He will become a “god” in the afterlife and be given his own planet

Satan is Jesus’ literal brother

Jesus was not born of a virgin birth

He will be given his own afterlife kingdom where he will have sexual relations with his wife, Ann, to populate his kingdom with spirit children as God the Father Himself has a wife on His own planet.

The author, who herself was married in a Mormon temple at age 19 but now considers herself a non-denominational Christian, says there’s a secret agenda Mormon officials don’t like to talk about publicly.

“A complete takeover of the government,” she said. “They have more people in the CIA, the FBI. They have an employment office for Mormons in D.C. to be able to infiltrate them into the government.”

“They’ve been trying since the beginning to get someone in the presidency, because they believe they have to establish their authority so when Jesus comes to Earth, the Mormon Church will take control of the government and the Mormons will be the government of God on Earth,” she continued.

Years ago I read a number of books about the history of Mormonism. It has some very strange elements but the Mormons I have known have been some of the best, most honest upstanding people I have ever known. It would not stop me from voting for Romney in fact, nothing will stop me from voting for the Republican nominee. I am hoping we do not have a 3d party rear it's ugly head.

Well, Ditter and I finally agree on something.

I’ve known Mormons and they’ve always seemed like nice people to me. It’s Islamists we should be united against.

This also reminds me of modern people who hate and fear Masons. I never met a Mason who wasn’t a decent person who gave lots of money to charitable causes. Go figure.

Religious intolerance is that, which is currently being practised in Egypt, Libya, Syrian and Iran. It is not the free expression you see here, no matter how impolite that expression may be. It doesn’t lend itself to anyone’s politically-correct strictures.

All religions have wacky ideas as far as I’m concerned. The Mormons are no different.

My fear is muslims, muslims and more muslims. When the Mormons start murdering women and children and butchering dogs because they bring tenderness into our lives, I’ll take a look at the so-called Mormon problem.

.....”and that they, after death, will literally become Gods themselves, ruling over their own “planet”....”

You have convinced me. Before I vote for ANYBODY to assume any government position of public trust and authority, I now require that they answer truthfully and completely exactly what they believe is on the other side. If they believe there is nothing, say so. If they believe there is something, they must fully describe what that “something” is that’s over there.

FR just reflects the concerns of a large number of people who had the same concerns about Mitt in 2008. There is a reason Mitt lost in 2008 and its the Mormon thing combined with a basic mistrust of his political leanings. Now in 2011 the same misgivings about Romney are resurfacing.

Personally I don’t want the guy because he’s a big govt RINO and will not have the will to do what needs to be done to restore the Constitutional Republic. I’m not wild about the Mormon thing either.

Perhaps you should just post the wonderful positive things about Romney that make you in favor of nominating him for the GOP candidate. Maybe you can change some minds.

Well, we currently have one who thinks he IS God.

Romney has issues other than his religion. In fact, as long as his (or anyone elses) religion doesn’t reward him for killing people, I don’t much care what it is.

I find it bewildering that you think I’m a Romney supporter because I’m not afraid of Mormons. I AM afraid of Muslims. But then I once knew a nice boy who was a Mormon and then lived in London next to a deeply frightening Muslim. Helps with perspective.

I think Romney should have gotten that job on The Price is Right back in 2008. To me, he’s always looked like a game show host.

Interesting article. Mormonism is a cult.

Looking at Mormon politicians like Harry Reid, he seems to be about as faithful as the Kennedy’s are to the Catholic Church and the Pope. I remember when people were afraid to vote for Kennedy because Catholics loyalty belonged to the Pope. Now I think our country would be better if all Catholics were faithful Catholics!

No, Reid and Kennedy prototypes worship at the feet of liberal causes and groups and re-election.

Meh, I’ve known a lot of Mormons and they’ve all been good family folks and great people with conservative values. While I agree Mormons are not really Christians, I will let God sort that out.

I couldn’t care less if Mitt is a Mormom, nor would I care if he worshiped a giant earthworm God. What matters to me is Romney is not really a conservative. He’s better than Hussein by far, but still not really a true conservative.

His just being Mormon isn’t a problem for me. But I’d like to know - does he really believe the Mormon doctrines, or is he just a nominal Mormon? A nominal Mormon would not raise concerns for me. Romney, however, presents an array of secular concerns too. So it’s moot for me.

There are much stronger reasons why Romney poses a risk to the US.

Namely, his loyality is to internationalism and he is a traitor to the constitution and human life - a politically correct socialist.

Not to be taken TOO seriously. The more simplistic the sect, the more direct the desired connection between Jesus and the individual, the more "anti-catholic" it is apt to be. Although Catholicism is a biblical religion, a great many of its religious practices and rituals derive from clearly pagan FORMS of worship. NOThopefully PAGAN CONTENT. This drives Protestants nuts. Always has. For centuries they have tried to "purify" Christianity from "pagan" rituals and practice. I.E., priests, vestments, incense, statues, crucifices, Latin, Greek, Devotion to Mary, the hierarchy, candles, indulgences, sacraments, holy water, bowing, genuflecting, stained glass windows, medals, shrines, relics, etc. with varying degrees of success.

This has naturally led to tensions with the Roman and other Catholic Churches (Note the word "ROMAN" in the title?) The Pope is the "Pontifex Maximus." That same title had been held by Julius Caesar. The Greek, Syrian, Coptic, Armenian, Russian, churches all reflect many of the pagan civilizations from which their adherents were originally converted. The word "catholic," merely means "universal," and it would be a nice thing for the theologically and historically less sophisticated to occasionally remember that all Christianity was more or less "catholic," in content for a long time, although differing greatly in "form," depending upon exactly which particular pagans the converts originally were, and where they lived. Christianity is in short, our direct link to the classical World of Greece and Rome. One doesn't have to like that. One should probably be wary of it. But it simply is.
Christ was a Jew born in a Roman colony on 01/0/0 AD. He was not born in Terre Haute, Indiana in 1927.

The NT was written in the everyday Greek of the Eastern Mediterranean Roman Empire.
Christianity became the official religion of Rome in the 4th C. AD. Temples were converted to churches, as you can plainly see all over Italy. The priests who served the Gods of Rome were probably recycled, too. It's human. It's what happened.

The first Christians of course, were practicing Jews,as was Jesus, and many of them insisted upon Jewish forms of worship in early Christianity, which led to some pretty bitter internecine struggles. THAT'S in the Bible.

Does ritual and ceremony bring one (a) into the direct experience of Christ,
or (b) does ritual and ceremony get in the way? The answer to both (a) and (b) is, "YES."
