Mormon Democrats gather for first-ever national meeting in Charlotte during DNC
Above, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who belongs to the LDS Church, speaks to the first national meeting of LDS Democrats on Tuesday in Charlotte. Reid mentioned that several presidential candidates in the United States have been Mormons, starting with Joseph Smith, the founder and first president of the LDS Church, who ran in 1844 with "a very progressive" platform.

Such a diverse crowd. Media??? Crickets be a chirping.
They ought to all be excommunicated. Mormonism is not about Marxism, I know I was born a Mormon and am getting ready to renounce the faith because they allow people like Reid to be members in good standing. There just isn’t any way that Reid could be called a “faithful Mormon” the way he behaves.
But then the Catholic leaders are hiding under their pulpits instead of excommunicating the likes of Biden and Pelousey!
I guess at the end of the day, “organized religions” are all just businesses, so money and power trump the truth and honesty.
Woooo, and we keep hearing how conservative mormons are (not)!
Reid was awarded a “mormon of the year” award in 2009, by BYU and SLC lds and is a temple worthy mormon.
There is nothing in mormonism contrary to liberalism.
When I was in Mira Mesa, we had standing rules that NO political discussions were to take place inside the LDS church buildings. They don't want any excuse for the government to attempt to remove their tax exempt status as a religious organization. Black (AME) churches get away with it on live TV with tripe like Jesse Jackson yammering from the pulpit. A double standard.
Harry was the only speaker in either convention to serve as basis of a character in a Godfather movie.
Any bishop who would sign his recommend should be embarrassed and immediately relieved of his calling.
Moron Democrats? Must be a huge venue.
Harry Reed gets 89% of the Mormon vote. I always wondered about that when I hear how conservative they are.
We are experiencing the wheat and the tares having to grow up together. Don't renounce your faith because of Harry Reid. God has allowed us to grow beside them for a reason. We just don't know what that reason is yet.
We need to pray for the hand of God to act swiftly and to give us courage to do His will.
Shouldn’t the headline have been “Moron Democrats gather for first-ever national meeting in Charlotte...”?
Amazing isn’t it.
mormonism teaches that Israel will be resettled in Missouri, that they are the true chosen, and Jews are gentiles like everyone else.
Just start following what’s going on in SLC to find out about their opposition to homosexual marriage.
Good point. I live in a state that will go at least 55/45 for Romney and is not being contested. I have yet to see a Romney bumper-sticker but have seen dozens if not hundreds for the 0ccupant / _resident. Your observation explains why.
The Mormon Church was fined for not fully disclosing their contributions to the “ Marriage between 1 man and 1 woman” proposition” in California.
“Mormon Church” is a non sequitor.
I didn't see any evidence of similar prosecutions directed against the anti-prop 8 side of the equation. Surely there was substantial money spent there as well.
“Moron Democrats” is redundant.
BINGO!! WE HAVE A WINNER!!
