CitizenM, it would be better if you did not confuse the issues. Mitt Romney is the best choice for president because he best espouses the principles set forth in the Constitution. His affiliation with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is another issue all together.
Christian citizens of the United States can vote for Romney with a clear conscience because, again, he and his policies most closely accord with the founding documents of our nations, especially in comparison to the current president. Mitt Romney is my choice for president.
However, when you advance the duplicitous theological statements of the late LDS president Hinckley as reasons for Christians to “feel better” about voting for Romney, you commingle badly the State and the Church, the kingdom of God’s left hand and His right. You betray either your own ignorance or your own veiled agenda. My advice in this election season is this: leave it alone. Mormons are, by their own confession and history, not Christians, no matter what their current leadership says. And that is the simple truth.
Nevertheless, I am going to vote for Romney ... not because he is a Mormon, but despite that fact.
Very very well written and correct. You articulated the beliefs much better than I could have and you were also a bit more polite than I might have been.
After reading Citizen’s post, it made me even less likely to vote for Romney. It’s all lies.
(No, I am not going to vote for Obama.)
