Skip to comments.Mormon Bishop Mitt Romney’s Anti-Christian Religion
Posted on 05/01/2012 7:33:08 PM PDT by Mozilla
Many naive Americans believe that Mormonism is merely another branch of protestant Christianity. Well thats not what the founders and leaders of Mormonism believed.
According to its founder, Joseph Smith, and Brigham Young, Smiths successor, Mormons are the only true people of God on the earth. All non-Mormons and their religions are wrong, an abomination, blind, damned, of the devil, whores, not Christians, groveling in darkness, heathens, ignorant, devoid of fact, pagan and hatched in Hell.
When Romney made a speech about his religion in 2008 he refused to distance himself from his faith and fully affirmed his Mormonism. Responding to critics, Romney said,
"They would prefer it if I would simply distance myself from my religion, say that it is more a tradition than my personal conviction, or disavow one or another of its precepts. That I will not do. I believe in my Mormon faith and I endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers - I will be true to them and to my beliefs."
Romney, the father of homosexual marriage in America and abortion funding Romney Care in Massachusetts, flip-flops on virtually every issue, but he is adamant about his anti-Christian Mormonism. Romney needs the vote of Christians to win election, but he refuses to disavow one or another of its precepts.
Nor can anyone think Romney is merely a casual or cultural Mormon who just happened to be born Mormon. He is an active Bishop in the Mormon church hierarchy. He cannot pretend to be ignorant of the teaching of Joseph Smith and the other prophets of Mormonism.
Below is a list of quotes from Mormon leaders and official publications starting with Joseph Smith down to our day. The message is consistent and clear.

Eh; don't worry about it.
There are a LOT more of us!!
And we're TRAINED!!
What these silly people dont seem to understand is we have a closet muslim in power now and thats much worse than mormons. If you dont submit to Islam you are subject to be put to death. They call christians and jews monkeys and cattle to be slaughtered. Yeah I know which on is worse and Ive seen the damned barbarians kill wholesale in Iraq in their POS moon god worshiping ways. What religion is constantly chanting death to america and death to israel. I think we all know. Taqqiya or Jizya anyone...ABO.
Bad mouthing folks AGAIN?

“Won’t it be tragic when MORMONs find out their ‘prophets’ had LIED to them?”
Oh, no...their prophets are all perfect...it’s just that the records of their prophecies were translated incorrectly...
;^) hee hee
It would be bad enough if it stopped there but mormonism has thousands of "missionaries" all over the world - including Paris, France, where Myth evaded the draft during the Viet Nam era.
The "missionaries will have a new and persuasive (to many) talking point, "just look, the President of the United States is a Mormon, it must be alright".
I don't think we can ever transcend Joseph Smith or consider him to be a valued personality, but now we'll move on.I don't think you'll see that among believers in the faith, because there are too many other things that came from himthat are the reasons why we do what we do and we are what we are. That there are unanswered questions, to be sure.That there are things that I'm as anxious as the next guy to learn more detail on, I really want to know. But in the interim,it really doesn't, doesn't trouble me.We're in the religion-making business, as you intimated earlier, only for a short time, I mean, compared to theChristian church, which has been at this for a couple of millennia. We're about halfway to Nicaea.And so, and so in that sense I remember a very tender moment. I was speaking with I've been invitedto the Salt Lake Theological Seminary, basically an Evangelical seminary, to discuss a book I had done on Jesus.And they had read it, and they wanted me to come and just respond to questions.And it was, it was a very enjoyable couple of hours.The very last question that was asked by one of my friends there was this one.He said, 'Bob, what can we do for you?'And I, I wasn't ready for that question. I said, 'What do you mean?'He said, 'What can we, as Evangelicals, do for our Mormon friends?'And I, I guess my mind could have gone a hundred different ways, but what I came back with was this.I said, 'Boy, I appreciate you asking that. I don't think I've ever been asked that.'But, but I said, 'Try this. Cut us a little slack, will you? Give us a little time.We're in the religion-making business, and this takes time. It takes centuries.And, and trying to explain the faith and articulate the faith, that doesn't come over night.We've really only been about that for 20 or 30 years.'
1. The prophet is the only man who speaks for the Lord in everything.
2. The living prophet is more vital to us than the standard works.
3. The living prophet is more important to us than a dead prophet.
4. The prophet will never lead the church astray.
5. The prophet is not required to have any particular earthly training or credentials to speak on any subject or act on any matter at any time.
6. The prophet does not have to say Thus Saith the Lord, to give us scripture.
7. The prophet tells us what we need to know, not always what we want to know.
8. The prophet is not limited by mens reasoning.
9. The prophet can receive revelation on any matter, temporal or spiritual.
10. The prophet may advise on civic matters.
11. The two groups who have the greatest difficulty in following the prophet are the proud who are learned and the proud who are rich.
12. The prophet will not necessarily be popular with the world or the worldly.
13. The prophet and his counselors make up the First Presidencythe highest quorum in the Church.
14. The prophet and the presidencythe living prophet and the First Presidencyfollow them and be blessedreject them and suffer.
I testify that these fourteen fundamentals in following the living prophet are true. If we want to know how well we stand with the Lord then let us ask ourselves how well we stand with His mortal captainhow close do our lives harmonize with the Lords anointedthe living ProphetPresident of the Church, and with the Quorum of the First Presidency.

You can scream until you are blue in the face it doesnt matter. Obama is a communist racist muslim period. No way is Romney worse, but thats a bad thing to say here. I dont think you understand, you arent changing anyones minds that want communist muslim Obama out at all costs. Waiting for the graphics, charts, and damnations to hell from certain free thinkers of how bad ABO folks are. Getting tiresome and childish to be honest. We have enter looney toon land. Moonbats arent only for the DEMs anymore with all the Obama support around here. :D
I didn't know about the child sacrifice and witchcraft. But if you say so.
On the other hand, our Roman brothers and sisters definitely practice idolatry. And what about cannibalism? I mean, they say they eat the REAL body and blood of our Lord Jesus. If that's not cannibalism, I don't know what is.
So let's bash away!
First they came for the Jews. Then they came for the Mormons. Then they came for the mentally retarded morons, a/k/a Romneybots. Then they came for the Catholics. Then . . . .
How does this stupid shit qualify as Breaking News?
Not to mention evidence of sub par intellect. There's a whole lotta stupid on FR these days...
There is no doubt that mormonism considers historic Christian churches to be the spawn of hell, the whore of Babylon, destined for destruction.
That isn’t why I object to Romney.
I object to Romney because he’s the author of the $50 abortion, the originator of the gay marriage licence, an advocate of increased fees/taxes, an avowed opponent of the 2nd amendment, the creator of ObamaCare, a perpetrator of Medicare Fraud, a crony corporatist, and an advocate of homosexual boy scout leaders.
Mormons could hate kittens, but that isn’t important. What’s important is Romney’s history of radical liberalism, 3rd way elitism, and social corporatism.
You haven't been paying attention. There have been literally hundreds of such threads on FR over the years...probably thousands. Many of the same posters can be found on both anti-Moromon and anti-Catholic threads. But don't worry...they spew all this hate purely out of love. Filthy hypocrites.
...are a daily occurrence.
Thanks for sharing your views, dear brother in Christ!
Amen! I’m so sick of this stupid crap I could scream! I wish these nutcases would go off somewhere and start their own forum where they could bash Mormons to their hearts content. Religious bigotry is evil, pure and simple. Whether they’re flaming the fires of hatred for Jews or Catholics or Mormons it’s wrong and should be considered beneath the dignity of FR and modern conservatism.
Obama had a Muslim father and a Muslim stepfather
He went to Koran memorization & recitation (brainwashing) classes in Indonesia. He lived in Muslim Indonesia for four of his most formative years...age 6 to age 10...when children get imprinted with life long beliefs
At minimum Obama is a huge Muslim sympathizer and dittos for people serving in his administration. Obama and his State Department are sucking up to the Muslim brotherhood
Where would you or I rather live in? A Muslim dominated neighborhood or a Mormon dominated neighborhood? Choice is easy for me. We have some DNC operatives here trying to tear down Romney and Mormonism.
I appreciate your indulging my verbosity, dear Sister in Christ! LOL!
Just a reminder for folks to threaten their children with eternal damnation today.
They are making FR an unpleasant place to be, for conservatives to congregate. I just posted this>>>

We have some DNC operatives here trying to tear down Romney and Mormonism. If they are not DNC operatives then they are stupid to post such voluminous drek without compensation.
If Obama's people have any brains they can come to FR and get some useful anti-Romney (meaning pro-Obama) material here from these anti-Mormon, energizer posting bunnies
Nonetheless he is 100x better than Obama and I'll be voting Romney. As President of the US he will not be tilting so far left. Gotta remember this is what he did in Massachusetts, the most liberal state in the Union who elected Ted Kennedy 6 or more times
Romney is a centrist. He is not a radical liberal and he, his wife and family do not live the lifestyle of liberals
According to liberals. Leftwingers always claim that they are centrists. But they're not, are they? No moreso than the OWS terrorists are the 99%.
I have to disagree with you dennis. I’ve not doubt that romney is a radical liberal. His positions are all those of a radical liberal and not those of a centrist.
While I respect your decision to vote for whomever you wish, I will be voting for a conservative, Virgil Goode of the Constitution Party.

You won't see reports of "family scandals" by only reading websites belonging to the mormon church.
Also, THIS family scandal was reported on FR in many threads. Guess you missed it.

How about the good old family rearing of Mormon Josh Powell.
Now THERE’S a role model!
LOLOL! I always look forward to reading your views and insights, dear brother in Christ!
As will I.
Yep...whole lotta Freepers more than happy to do obammy's dirty work. It's a crying shame.
The Susan Powell case where the husband killed the children, the wife still missing.
The reason why people don't hear about Mormon crimes is that they have to read beyond the headlines to find out whether the people involved are mormons or not.
I live in a close swing state so my vote counts....It is going to Romney however good Virgil Goode is. I am sure I agree with him more than Romney
I am voting my conscience and my conscience says job #1 is getting Obama out. Then good can flow from that if we work on Romney and Congress. But Obama is immune to our influence plus his agenda is to really wreck America in term #2....this is plain as day
I live in Ohio so my vote counts.
The Constitution Party garnered 200,000 votes in Ohio for their candidate for the lowly position of Attorney General in the last cycle election.
That’s huge! There is a huge hunger for a conservative candidate for the presidency.
As will I, and down ticket for conservatives ONLY.
I have gotten a PHD on the whole process but hope to be ready for snowboarding by about December, so long as I diligently follow the recovery process and instructions.
Gonna take some kinda patience.
muslim ... thats much worse than mormons.
Not according to the mormons..
To them Christianity is worse than Islam..
The great great grandfather of Willard Mitt Romney...
(One of his “fathers of faith” that Willard agrees with)
On this account, on the simple subject of the Deity and His worship, if nothing more, I should rather incline, of the two, after all my early traditions, education, and prejudices, to the side of Mahomet, for on this point he is on the side of truth, and the Christian world on the side of idolatry and heathenism. - Apostle Parley P. Pratt, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 3, p.38
..instead of saying that Mahometanism prevailed against Christianity, and that Christianity was in danger of being done away by its prevalence, we would rather say, that where Mahometanism prevailed, it taught and established one truth at least, viz., the true and living God, and so far as this went, it did preserve people from worshipping idols. And had the crescent waved on the tower of London, or on the church of St. Paul, instead of the cross, and had the Mahometan religion been enforced instead of the Roman religion that was enforced for a series of generations, and had tradition riveted what the sword enforced, then that nation and the surrounding nations would have been worshippers of one true God instead of idols; - Apostle Parley P. Pratt, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 3, p.39
my rational faculties would compel me to admit that the Mahometan history and Mahometan doctrine was a standard raised against the most corrupt and abominable idolatry that over perverted our earth, found in the creeds and worship of Christians, falsely so named. - Apostle Parley P. Pratt, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 3, p.40
So far as that one point is concerned, of worshipping the one true God under the name of Mahometanism, together with many moral precepts, and in war only acting on the defensive, I think they have exceeded in righteousness and truthfulness of religion, the idolatrous and corrupt church that has borne the name of Christianity. - Apostle Parley P. Pratt, Journal of Discourses, Vol. 3, p.41
And so what does Willard think about that ???
Mitt Romney, Dec, 2007, speaking @ the George Bush Presidential Library: I believe in my Mormon faith and I endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers I will be true to them and to my beliefs.
I think the old standby definitions of who votes for which party have been blown away in this campaign. I think people recognize that Im not a partisan Republicanthat Im someone who is moderate, and that my views are progressive.
-Mitt Romney (2002)
Will Mormons racial history be a problem for Mitt Romney?
...Tim Russert noted that Romney was 31 when the priesthood ban was lifted in 1978. Didnt you think, What am I doing part of an organization that is viewed by many as a racist organization? Russert asked.
Im very proud of my faith, and its the faith of my fathers, Romney answered. And Im not going to distance myself from my faith in any way.
Which path would Mitt Romney have taken? asks the onscreen text. The video recalls Romneys contention, in an April 2007 interview with the Associated Press, that Americans will not be markedly safer if bin Laden were killed and that its not worth moving heaven and earth spending billions of dollars just trying to catch one person.
Romney stated: I believe in my Mormon faith and endeavor to live by it. My faith is the faith of my fathers. I will be true to them and to my beliefs,
and this is what you are anxious to replace Obama with..
Conservative down ticket is exactly right.
If they aren’t conservative, then I wonder if they’re even breathing. How can a conscious human being believe the drivel that liberals do?
Then good can flow from that
but not God...
If you dont submit to Islam you are subject to be put to death.
Same with Mormonism
Thousands were murdered, some hunted down to other states, during the 1800s
and even into the 1900s and yes even now in the 21st Century..
Have you been off planet for a while? Ever heard of Harry Reid?
They call christians and jews monkeys and cattle to be slaughtered.
Mormons call Christians “the Whore of Babylon” and mock pastors in their Mormon temple ceremonies..
and yes there are those forever blood oathes of vengenge to their 4th generation that George Romney swore to and Willard agrees with..
vengence and death against the US government and non-Mormons for the death of Joey Smith...
Today I am a Pentecostal/"word of faith" guy. You cannot imagine what is said about my faith by "mainstream" Christians. So it doesn't strike me as unusual at all that "mormonism" considers others to be guilty of these same things.
Keep on equating ANY religion to Islam, the most evil ideology the planet has ever seen, it just makes you look clueless and ignorant. Dont ping me anymore, Im ashamed to share the great state of Tennessee with such naivety or outright DNC agitprop.
