I distinctly remember Larry saying it on his TV program that “HE IS A SOCIALIST AND PROUD OF IT”. So you are 100% correct.

God & Obama have one thing in common:
Nobody has seen God’s authentic birth certificate either.

But there is also a difference between God & Obama:
God does not think he is Obama.

Obama thinks he is God and Romney believes as a Mormon that he will become a god.

I throw up my hands at the profound silliness I see on display here every day. Obama doesn't think he's God. He's an avowed Marxist. At best, Marxists are agnostic.

As for Romney, his religious beliefs are between him and God. I'm not going to vote for a religious leader in November. I'm going to vote for president. There will be exactly two candidates who have an actual chance to win, Obama and Romney. I'm definitely not voting for Obama.

It is Mormon teaching that they will become gods.

I don't give a crap. What part of "I'm not voting for a religious leader, I'm voting for president" do you not understand?

While I don’t think Mitts religion should be of importance, I don’t believe Mormonism is a religion, and I’ll vote ABO... But the GOPe is about as stupid as stupid comes pushing Mittens on the base.

No I Do Not Understand, but then again, everyone can not be as astute as you. I Never Said Who I Am Voting For, but it won’t be Obama. Nevertheless, Romney is not a connservative.

I used to think the Mormon thing would be an issue.

But now I think it may not. If the Obama camp tries to bring it up (and they will) they should be slammed for Jeremiah Wright and the liberation theology junk.

Thus, religion may very well be a taboo subject in both camps in this election.

Republicans didn’t vet all the wackiness in the Mormon religion and now some people are shocked! socke! that a Dem would? Some of us have been telling people what was going to happen, it will be a bloodbath.

I don't see the Obama camp bringing it up -- likely they will tsk-tsk any religious bigotry (as Biden has already done). I do see the lapdog networks all bringing out "hit-umentaries" on Mormonism. If they play their cards right, they can foment a religious war to round out the race war and the class war they're always working on!

The height of stupidity is for the republican nominee to be a member of a sect with a proven racist past in a contest with a black man.

Anyone who believes that the left, including the media will NOT use mormonism to hammer Romney is either naive or blind.

Starting shortly after the death of the church’s founder, Joseph Smith, in 1844, the Mormon Church began denying its priesthood—otherwise granted to faithful young men over the age of 12 more or less as a matter of course—to men of African descent. That policy survived for well over a century. Only with a divine revelation announced by then-prophet Spencer W. Kimball in 1978 did the church finally overturn the ban and allow “all worthy males,” regardless of race, full and equal membership in the religion.

Why did the church withhold the priesthood from blacks for over a century? Among the reasons trotted out by church leaders—including church presidents—during that time: Black people are the cursed descendants of ancient Biblical figures; black people committed pre-mortal perfidy; black people lacked the intelligence and personal integrity to hold such a sacred office.

Such past beliefs have never officially been repudiated.

Is mormonism still racist?

The MSM does not have to do “hit” pieces on mormoniam, all they have to do is open their (lds) books and show people what is taught and practiced.
The MSM wont have to say anything, it will be laid bare.

“On this evening’s Last Word, O’Donnell dismissed Mormonism as a religion “invented” by its founder, Joseph Smith, for purposes of excusing his infidelity.”


I guess I will have to keep reading to find something I disagree with.

It seems the more I look into this religion the more questions I have. Last night I found that Joseph Smith drank alcohol even after he “prophesied” the Word of Wisdom; just a week before Smith’s death, he is drinking beer. Historical accounts show that Joseph Smith did not keep the Word of Wisdom.

Reference is made to to Joseph Smith’s diary, under the following dates:

January 14, 1836

January 20, 1836

January 24, 1836

March 29, 1836

March 30, 1836

January 20, 1843

March 7, 1843

March 10, 1843

April 13, 1843

May 3, 1843

June 1, 1844

If I can find this in one night, who can think the MSM will leave it alone?

"As for Romney, his religious beliefs are between him and God."

Actually, RINOmney's perverted religious beliefs are between him and God and anyone who votes for him... or chooses not to vote for him due to his whacky beliefs.

"I'm not going to vote for a religious leader in November. I'm going to vote for president."

You can use your own vote however you wish. That's how it works. I'll do the same.

"There will be exactly two candidates who have an actual chance to win, Obama and Romney. I'm definitely not voting for Obama."

RINOmney has the identical chance of winning Ford, Dole and McCain had.

Unless something miraculous happens between now and the convention, or at the convention in Tampa, Romney will be the nominee. It was predestined by the Elite GOPers and the liberal media.

AND, Romney will be beaten by Obama, reason being for that is that during this primary so many Liberal Democrats crossed over and voted for this DWEEB, and now we are stuck with him. In the General election, of course, they will be back in their own Obama corner.

When SNL and WILL FERRELL (the perfect Mittens), get through with Romney, Conservative Republicans will be the laughing stock of the world.

SNL/Liberals do not give one hoot about religion, and they lump Christians and mormonism into one basket. After all Mittens says hes a Christian. They don't care if there is a difference and will use whatever to blaspheme the true Christian faith. In fact they will use mormonism to slander the true Christians Churches.

Many of you that have states with open primaries and caucuses need to get that changed and this year, or we will forever be in a mess such as this. Talk about Voter ID all you want to, and I agree, but when you have CROSS OVER voters stealing our elections and choosing our candidates, that is a DISGRACE to America and to your fellow countrymen.

I am very despondant over all this, and for Romney to put us in this position is dispicable. We will never have another Reagan and this time around we had the best shot with NEWT, but then it AIN'T OVER YET.

Well, you can shuck and jive all you like, but I hold the GOP and LDS inc responsible for little barry bastArd’s re-election. I will act accordingly in the future.

Milt Rominy (it rhymes with hominy) is much more than merely a bishop in LDS, he believes himself to be a Melchizedek high priest on par with the priesthood Jesus holds.

I think I’ve seen him on a few of the anti-Mormon threads that infest this forum...
