I've been saying this over-and-over and keep getting attacked as "Anti-Mormon."
Not the case at all. (I know squat about Mormons, other than they make good neighbors and that the Methodist Church and Roman Catholics don't accept their baptisms.)
It's a fact.
I can hear now Pat Robertson getting on the 700 Club and saying "God will withdraw his protection from us if we support a non-Christian like Romney."
Yes, yes, I know Mormon consider this Christian. Again, I have no idea on the subject.
I am just stating a fact: the "700 Club" set won't vote for Romney
And a Republican CANNOT get elected with active dislike of that group.
Hillary would get out her fake 2ft by 2ft Bible and claim to be a Christian and that would be all it will take.
They're not Trinitarians. The "Father, Son and Holy Spirit" are supposedly three persons who used to be human beings. The Father got promoted to the job of ruler of this planet. Eventually, if you're good, you can have your own planet too. If you don't believe me, look it up.
He seems to be making headway with this group. The more they see him and the better they know him, the more they like him.
If what you are saying is correct, then this country is doomed...and that doom will be a well-earned one.
I can't believe that anyone would be that superficial.
That's because Mormons don't publically baptise. We have no way of knowing how it is done.
I have my doubts that the "700 Club" bloc (as opposed to the general evangelical block) is as significant to Republicans as you say. I know lots of evangelicals, but not many watch the 700 Club regularly.
The same as Catholicism was when Kennedy ran. It won't stop him as the public sees what they are getting.
There must be some reason that the lamestream media is worried about the sheeple not endorsing one of their hand-picked candidates (McClain or Guilani) or they wouldn't even be bringing up this s*** now.
Unless a governor the caliber of Mark Sanford announces, Romney is-- by far-- the best of any of the announced candidates so far from the viewpoint of electability/competence/adherence to principle.
The senate is full of morons who would rather please the press than make good executive decisions. The house just doesn't have anyone capable of putting together the money and name recognition to make a serious run. This leaves the pool pretty much limited to governors and high-profile legislators or former legislators like Newt Gingrich, who has his own history of bimbo problems.
It appears that you're right. I find that astounding; I didn't think so many folks so disliked Mormonism that they wouldn't even consider voting for a Mormon.
I don't have a problem voting for Mormons. Heck, I think I did in this last election. I think the Republican candidate for Lt. Gov. in Maryland was a Mormon. Maybe the ticket lost because of the anti-Mormon vote?? ;-)
Romney has already beeing wooing the '700 Club set'...
