As you know, I do not claim expertise in LDS matters. That said, I am thinking Mr. Marriott’s remarks are significant.
I would vote for a Hindu against Obama.
As long at that candidate was more conservative than Obama, that candidate would have my vote.
Obama must go.
I as well am glad that mormonism is being highlighted, it’s about time people learned of mormonism blasphemy against God Almighty.
Thank you, Mr Mattiott (the hotel chain owner with the largest distribution of hotel porn), for making this issue a headline.
LDS: nice people, weird religion.
Hmmm. Odd considering that Marriott advertises as Gay-Friendly..
Shouldnt this thread be in the Religion Forum ???
The subject is about a religion, Mormonism...
When one looks at any religion other than their own, it usually looks weird. That is because during your formative years before adulthood, you are exposed almost without an exception only to the rituals of your own religion.
When I arrived in US at a young age (barely out of teens) I knew of only of one religion, being born in a Hindu family. Most people I met here were Christians and I thought they were weird.
But then as I matured, I learned to find positive qualities in individuals and Christians were no longer weird to me. I even married a Christian woman.
I have met a few Mormons during my 40 year career in US and I can’t think of any one I disliked personally. So I have to conclude their religion has not turned them into weirdo’s like strapping bombs and blowing up civilian bystanders as some other religions.
I will add one more positive for the Church of LDS today. I’ve been trying (with some degree of failure) to research my Dad’s side of the family. Virtually all of the genealogy sites charge or at least require registration. The Mormons’ site is absolutely free. Sometimes, all you need is a name & thanks to them, I found that name which took me all the way back to Ireland. They’re not money-grubbers, for sure.
Their salvation is between them & God. We need to keep them in our prayers imho.
There are a lot of wealthy Mormons and The Mormon Church has a ton of money. I’m thinking there will be a lot of Mormon money funneled into the Romney campaign. (I have no problem with that.) And with 5 million Mormons in America, I’m thinking they might organize a ground game to campaign for Mitt. Just speculating.
I don’t see how Romney has brought attention to the Mormon Church except for the fact that he is a Mormon. I don’t know anymore about the Mormon Church now than I did before Romney ran for office. Some say it’s a cult. I don’t know if it is or not. I could say the same thing about some of the TV preachers I’ve heard.
J.W. Marriott should also thank Zer0 for bringing attention to Black Liberation Theology that his pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright preached in his Chicago church. Oh, I forgot. Everyone and their dog has done their damnedest to ignore Zer0’s religious influence.
