Bigot Chris Matthews' War On Catholics And Mormons
IBD editorials ^ | March 15, 2012 | IBD staff

Posted on 03/15/2012 5:17:37 PM PDT by raptor22

Bias: Having lost that tingly feeling up his leg, MSNBC's Chris Matthews savages GOP presidential candidates as belonging to cults. Well, at least they didn't spend two decades listening to the Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

Imagine the uproar if Rush Limbaugh had called Islam a cult. Yet there was Matthews, whose legs once twitched at every word coming from Barack Obama's teleprompter, telling fellow MSNBC left-winger Ed Schultz in the presence of the Rev. Al Sharpton that the GOP has "two RCs — Roman Catholics — running and a Mormon, so three cultists running."

Having Matthews, Schultz and Sharpton on the same show is perhaps the greatest collection of intolerant minds ever assembled, with the possible exception of when David Duke dines alone.

Mr. Ed was recently given a token suspension by MSNBC for calling conservative pundit Laura Ingraham a "right-wing slut," though it didn't ignite the firestorm directed at Limbaugh for using similar references to describe Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown coed impoverished by having to buy her own contraceptives.

If Chrissy wants to talk about CULTS, he needs to do a piece on the Obamabots aka Tax Deadbeats. They define cult!

This was posted earlier. It’s not quite what Chrissy said. He was saying that is what Southern Evangelicals think of Catholics and Mormons. Still, even to think this shows how bigoted Chrissy is and how his warped mind works.

Don’t be silly.

You think he will quote me if I say Obama is a nancy boy? “Southern Christians think Obama is a nancy boy?”

No - he only quotes what he wants to amplify. And doesn’t even have the balls to say it himself.

Just a Leftist. Not a man.

Well, Hitler was raised a Catholic but never practiced the faith after his childhood. Sort of like Chris Tingles.

"I HAVE SWORN UPON THE ALTAR OF GOD
ETERNAL HOSTILITY
TO EVERY FORM OF TYRANNY OVER THE MIND OF MAN"
 
 
ETERNAL HOSTILITY?  Evidently Thomas Jefferson was a "bigot" too when it came to state-sponsored religious cults who've demonstrated an historical tendency toward subjugating those within the purview of their authority.
 

 


"...who, being themselves but fallible and uninspired men, have assumed dominion over the faith of others, setting up their own opinions and modes of thinking as the only true and infallible, and as such endeavoring to impose them on others, hath established and maintained false religions over the greatest part of the world, and through all time;
 
...
 
 that it is time enough for the rightful purposes of civil government, for its officers to interfere when principles break out into overt acts against peace and good order; and finally, that truth is great and will prevail if left to herself, that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate, errors ceasing to be dangerous when it is permitted freely to contradict them. "
 
--The Virginia Act For Establishing Religious Freedom
--Thomas Jefferson, 1786

Lieberals are trapped in a cult, a cult of personality.

Tingles, hmmm, hmmm, hmmm...gets excited like a little girl when talking about 0bama, a physical response due to an overwhelming desire to worship him.

too bad that liberals don’t read history. “Christians” may turn the other cheek, but Catholics.... not so much. The Cristero War comes to mind as does the Spanish Civil War. ..... It’ll take about another 10-20 years but it’ll happen. Who would have thought we’d of descended this far into the moral abyss of rule by bureaucrat and judge.

Bigot Chris Matthews' War On Catholics And Mormons

Ah...

Are you MOST upset about the RCC being called a CULT; or the poor, victimized MORMONs?

Chris Matthews is Catholic.

Then he is RIPE for a couple of fresh faced fellows to show up at his door!

Catholicism is the BIGGEST field for MORMONs to reap from.

Bigot Chris Matthews' War On Catholics And Mormons

Yes; it is indeed terrible when BIGOTRY is exposed!








Questions put to Joseph Smith: "'Do you believe the Bible?' [Smith:]'If we do, we are the only people under heaven that does, for there are none of the religious sects of the day that do'. When asked 'Will everybody be damned, but Mormons'? [Smith replied] 'Yes, and a great portion of them, unless they repent, and work righteousness." (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p. 119).
Joseph Smith: "for the teachers of religion of the different sects understood the same passages of scripture so differently as to destroy all confidence in settling the question by an appeal to the Bible" (from Pearl of Great Price 1:12). "What is it that inspires professors of Christianity generally with a hope of salvation? It is that smooth, sophisticated influence of the devil, by which he deceives the whole world" (Teachings of the Prophet Joseph Smith, p.270).
 
 
 
Brigham Young stated this repeatedly: "When the light came to me I saw that all the so-called Christian world was grovelling in darkness" (Journal of Discourses 5:73); "The Christian world, so-called, are heathens as to the knowledge of the salvation of God" (Journal of Discourses 8:171); "With a regard to true theology, a more ignorant people never lived than the present so-called Christian world" (Journal of Discourses 8:199); "And who is there that acknowledges [God's] hand? ...You may wander east, west, north, and south, and you cannot find it in any church or government on the earth, except the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" (Journal of Discourses , vol. 6, p.24); "Should you ask why we differ from other Christians, as they are called, it is simply because they are not Christians as the New Testament defines Christianity" (Journal of Discourses 10:230).
 
 
 
Orson Pratt proclaimed: "Both Catholics and Protestants are nothing less than the 'whore of Babylon' whom the Lord denounces by the mouth of John the Revelator as having corrupted all the earth by their fornications and wickedness. Any person who shall be so corrupt as to receive a holy ordinance of the Gospel from the ministers of any of these apostate churches will be sent down to hell with them, unless they repent" (The Seer, p. 255).
 
 
 
Orson Pratt also said: "This great apostasy commenced about the close of the first century of the Christian era, and it has been waxing worse and worse from then until now" (Journal of Discourses
, vol.18, p.44) and: "But as there has been no Christian Church on the earth for a great many centuries past, until the present century, the people have lost sight of the pattern that God has given according to which the Christian Church should be established, and they have denominated a great variety of people Christian Churches, because they profess to be ...But there has been a long apostasy, during which the nations have been cursed with apostate churches in great abundance" (Journal of Discourses , 18:172).
 
 
President John Taylor stated: "Christianity...is a perfect pack of nonsense...the devil could not invent a better engine to spread his work than the Christianity of the nineteenth century." (Journal of Discourses , vol. 6, p.167); "Where shall we look for the true order or authority of God? It cannot be found in any nation of Christendom." (Journal of Discourses , 10:127).
 
 
 
James Talmage said: "A self-suggesting interpretation of history indicates that there has been a great departure from the way of salvation as laid down by the Savior, a universal apostasy from the Church of Christ". (A Study of the Articles of Faith, p.182).
 
 
 
President Joseph Fielding Smith said: "Doctrines were corrupted, authority lost, and a false order of religion took the place of the gospel of Jesus Christ, just as it had been the case in former dispensations, and the people were left in spiritual darkness." (Doctrines of Salvation, p.266). "For hundreds of years the world was wrapped in a veil of spiritual darkness, until there was not one fundamental truth belonging to the place of salvation ...Joseph Smith declared that in the year 1820 the Lord revealed to him that all the 'Christian' churches were in error, teaching for commandments the doctrines of men" (Doctrines of Salvation, vol. 3, p.282).
 
 
 
More recent statements by apostle Bruce McConkie are also very clear: "Apostasy was universal...And this darkness still prevails except among those who have come to a knowledge of the restored gospel" (Doctrines of Salvation, vol 3, p.265); "Thus the signs of the times include the prevailing apostate darkness in the sects of Christendom and in the religious world in general" (The Millennial Messiah, p.403); "a perverted Christianity holds sway among the so-called Christians of apostate Christendom" (Mormon Doctrine, p.132); "virtually all the millions of apostate Christendom have abased themselves before the mythical throne of a mythical Christ whom they vainly suppose to be a spirit essence who is incorporeal uncreated, immaterial and three-in-one with the Father and Holy Spirit" (Mormon Doctrine, p.269); "Gnosticism is one of the great pagan philosophies which antedated Christ and the Christian Era and which was later commingled with pure Christianity to form the apostate religion that has prevailed in the world since the early days of that era." (Mormon Doctrine, p.316).
 
 
 
President George Q. Cannon said: "After the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was organized, there were only two churches upon the earth. They were known respectively as the Church of the Lamb of God and Babylon. The various organizations which are called churches throughout Christendom, though differing in their creeds and organizations, have one common origin. They all belong to Babylon" (Gospel Truth, p.324).
 
 
President Wilford Woodruff stated: "the Gospel of modern Christendom shuts up the Lord, and stops all communication with Him. I want nothing to do with such a Gospel, I would rather prefer the Gospel of the dark ages, so called" (Journal of Discourses , vol. 2, p.196).

Catholics are Christians, and yes, we do believe in "turning the other cheek". We read the same Bible, and claim the same savior, as those "Christians" of whom you speak.

But there's also a place for resistance to tyranny. For example, a tyranny that attempts to shut down or suborn the faith is one that needs to be resisted, passively if not actively.

In the case of the Spanish Civil War, something like 3000 priests were shot by the "Republicans" (= Communists). Not for any crime they had committed, but simply for being Catholic priests. I would tend to think that the "Christians" you're talking about would react the same way to a state that shot thousands of Christian ministers for no reason except their identity. Maybe they would be far less indulgent toward that state than the Spanish Catholics were.

Well we are going to get a chance to see how Christians react to persecutions. My grandfather fought in the revolution and again in the Christero war. Two priest were some of the best fighters in the war. He immigrated to the USA when the “peace” resulted in a bunch of priests and fellow Catholics put up against the wall.
