If Romney is like another Mormon Bishop I knew, I'd vote for him without question.
The man I knew could be trusted with anything or by anyone, especially by the most innocent and helpless.
Please Mitt, it's time to not be silent about what is most important.
Your bishop friend may have been a trustworthy soul, but keep in mind that when he attended the mormon temple he took this oath solemnly:
Mormons are no better or worse than any other group of people..they just have a multi-million-dollar PR firm and people who judge the whole group by the good actions of a few, holding them up as paragons of virtue.
Romney and Reid are both temple mormons, only about 15% of lds reach that high level. Both have received awards for being what a momorn should be.
Romney has not done anything that would remove him from that high level. mormonism is not what appears to be.
Could either of these "bishops" -- Bishop Romney or the other one you know -- be trusted with their own godhood & running their own planet? (As Mormons profess?)
[See post #28 for a few details about Mormons believing they are gods]
Could either of those bishops be trusted with receiving worship? Receiving glory and adulation? Receiving prayer appeals?
You see you've neglected a key component here:
When temple Mormons behave as legalistically expected, of course they'll be on their best outward behavior: That's exactly what you'd expect from people auditioning for full-blown godhood!
I'd be interested in knowing, GBA: Name me ONE candidate or potential candidate you'd vote for in some future POTUS election if they announced their divinity tomorrow?
Gingrich? Santorum? Sarah Palin? Fill in the blank?
Which one of these candidates' vulnerability to deception and lack of obvious discernment gets a free pass from you if they SINCERELY thought they were already a "god in embryo" on their way to full-blown godhood?
If they don't get a free pass from you re: an eval of who's going to be THE leader of the free world, why Mormons?
...and that would be what?
