What an evil rotten person Harry Reid is. He is the most contemptable person in Washington, except, of course, BO.

If Hairy is the epitome of Mormonism then that religion joins Islam as the religion of the uninformed and stupid!

Strange. I was under the impression most Mormons were going to vote for him? So the minority of Mormons who will vote Obama represent the religion more than the majority?
This has shades of “Islam is the religion of peace”, even though globally, most Muslims practice rape, abuse and Jihad. But they don’t represent Islam.

Harry, you’re a filthy, lying snake. They were right when they called you the worst leader in Senate history. Go f*** yourself.

What a low life.

I'd like to see a poll of Mormans to see if they'd like dingy Harry to be the "face of Mormanism."

Better yet would be to conduct a multiple choice poll of Mormons, offering a choice of several different body parts, to see how they characterize Reid.

Joseph Smith called himself the new Muhammad. the two religions have many similarities. I would say the Reid represents the Hamas of Mormonism!

For anyone who hasn't seen it,an outstanding film called "Casino" features Dirty Harry himself...or,at least,someone who portrays Dirty Harry.The film,an absolutely true story,is set in a Las Vegas casino and tells of the control that the Mafia had over it and how they used that control.A Nevada State Senator,the Chairman of the State Gaming Commission,is played by Dick Smothers and is portrayed as a *very* corrupt,*very* slimey public office holder.And the funny thing is that in the time period covered in this film Dirty Harry *was* a Nevada state senator and *was* the Chairman of the State Gaming Commission.

See it if you can...and see it again if you haven't seen it in a while.

For Mormons, the worst of the worst of the human species are called The Son’s of Perdition. For years I have wondered just who fits that description. Now I know, its Harry Reid. Mormons should demand that their church excommunicate Reid immediately! He’s the one who is sullying their religion.

“I’d like to see a poll of Mormons to see if they’d like dingy Harry to be the “face of Mormonism.”

My wife and I are both Mormons, although we are not active. Nevertheless, the local church sends people to “visit” with us on an infrequent basis. The last time they showed up, I met them at the door and told them that so long as Harry Reid was a member, that they were not welcome in our home. They told us that 95% of the local “congregation” felt that he should be excommunicated and were distressed that the church leaders in Salt Lake City were not taking that action. I have actually been considering having my name removed from the membership, and Harry Reid is one of the factors affecting my decision.

Harry Reid is a Mormon and he's attacking a fellow Mormom.

I predict that this will BOOMERANG like he or the Dems never expected.

Reid is terrified of a Romney/Ryan administration.

We have DWS outright slandering the Republican Jewish Coalition and now Reid is going after the Mormons in Nevada.

Not while hes the highest political figure in all o0f Mormondom, Harry is not going anywhere...

He will remain where he is receiving frequent honors from SLC and their underlings

and in a place where he can influence the US government...

Knowing all you know about the corruption and political ambition within Mormonism, can you imagine them not wanting a Mormon in at least the 2 branches of the 3 ???

One temple Mormon in the Executive office and one in the Senate’s highest office (for the Legislature ???

and then there are those several Mormons in the house...

any one of them could be Speaker ...

and then the Supreme Court one day...

No Harry Reid is not going anywhere...

Hes just the type of Mormon that they want there...

Substitute Mitch McConnell slamming Obama as “Not the face of Christianity” and predict the reaction of the Dems and media.

Reid is a temple Mormon, he is among the most devoted and holy of Mormons, and tithes at least 10% of his income to the leaders.

There was a very widely known Dim US Senator, now deceased, who stood for almost everything his church (The Roman Catholic Church) was against... He was never excomminicated either.

I am Catholic from birth and attend 12 years of Catholic school and I learned that the rule for excommunication was quite simple, if a Catholic publicly lives in sin and does not ask for forgiveness and promise to not "do it again" he is subject to excommunication.

It just never happened.

If you say so. His deeds in public sure don’t give that impression.

IMO, he’s a senile old fart and needs to go.

Harry Reid is a jack-Mormon himself, his soul filled with a darkness that suggests potential irreconcilable differences between himself and the LDS authorities.

No matter how scrupulously Harry may keep the rituals of his religion, it is not in his heart, and his withering contempt for Mitt Romney would appear to strengthen the belief that one cannot be a serious practicing Mormon and a liberal Democrat simultaneously.

Harry, you wanted to see how Mitt Romney was receiving and apportioning his annual income, and we found that a large part of disposal of that income was for charitable purposes. How much are YOU giving to either the LDS church or other charitable contributions?

Come on, Harry, put up or shut up. Bearing false witness is a sin punishable under the rules set down in the Decalogue.

Are you ready to challenge Heaven itself?

The important fact of Reid and Romney both being ‘temple Mormons’, the most holy of the Mormons, the most devout, and devoted 15% or so, who are rechecked for devotion every 2 years, and where fresh ID has to be renewed every single year, is that it shows the public that Mormonism is not what they think it is.

The information proves that Mitt’s and Harry’s devotion to Mormonism, and the secrets at their level of Mormonism, is not to be confused with Christian devotion.

See post 26, Reid is a truly devoted Mormon, and is verified to give at least 10% of his income to Mormonism.

How do we KNOW that “Dingy Harry” is actually doing this?

If he would spread imfamy and calumny against a fellow Mormon, could we be sure he is not also presenting a false set of books to the LDS authorities as well?

And how much of that money he allegedly contributes to the LDS church comes from dirty sources?

Trying to picture Harry Reid as a saint deserving of accolades from the elders is a very artful retouching of the portrait of Dorian Gray.

But Harry Reid has already sold his soul, to retain his position in the face of the practice of his own form of hedonism.

Can you say “hubris”?

The Mormon cult is about money and power, they verify Reid’s (and Mitt’s) status every 2 years and if he falls short, then he becomes a regular Mormon, and I think Mormon leaders know how to handle collecting money from Mormons, Mitt used to be in that role when he was a Bishop, and then was promoted to lead all the Bishops in his region.

Mitt was in charge of Temple qualifications as a Bishop, then Stake President, and also of excommunicating Mormons who were not true to the “organization”.

Reid and Mitt are both exceptional Mormons. Mormonism is not what the average church going American, thinks it is.
