My post #1 at this thread (read the thread excerpt also) provides a good summation: Does Romney's Mormonism Matter?
There, I mention
(1) how a candidate's soteriology does intersect with leadership skills & character
and (2) How discernment is a VERY important character trait that people usually fail to think of when it comes to their incomplete A-B-C list within a POTUS job description.
I don't question Mitt Romney's intelligence. I question his level of discernment.
Another area of exploration -- one in which Romney will need to answer questions on -- is how his "prophet" can manipulate him as a POTUS.
At the same link I just gave you, I posted a chart @ post #32 which explains disturbing Mormon leader comments (in detail)...which DO pertain to the socio-political realm of an Lds leader potentially puppeteering Mormons in the political arena.
Romney needs to address those questions. (He won't; which just ups the degree of suspicion we should all have of Mormon "prophets." A Mormon "prophet" carries 100x more authority than a given Pope these days...that wasn't always true in Roman Catholicism)
Since Newt and Rick are Catholics, should we bring up their religion in every post about them as well?
How far does it go?
I’m not a Mitt backer at all, but I don’t see the purpose of bashing his religion every time his name is mentioned.
Mormons, by and large, are good people with solid character. Yes, they have some wacky beliefs, but so do Baptists.
From my perspective.
I don’t let that poison my mind.
It’s sad what you do and it makes all of FR look kookish and bigoted.
Your claim to represent the vast majority of Americans is silly, too.
