Skip to comments.Why Mitt Romney’s Mormonism Might Matter
Posted on 01/16/2012 11:13:52 AM PST by MDJohnPaul
Most Christians across the world believe Christ will come again to judge the living and the dead. Mormons believe that Jesus did come again already to America.
And that, to me, is whats interesting about Romney as a candidate.
A Mormons account of North American history is fundamentally different from most Christians, but virtually every other faith and anyone else. In Mormon history, North America was the site of an appearance of Jesus Christ, which is no small thing. It differs from historians and archeologists own research.
Jesus came here to create his church and it was restored by, as Mormons see it, prophet Joseph Smith. America is an exceptional place because of this unique historical event, according to Mormons.
Of course, many people will point out that many Catholics in North America and beyond believe that the Blessed Virgin Mary has appeared in Mexico, Lourdes and Fatima. There are also several other unconfirmed sightings. Thats always worthy of discussion.
Romney isnt running for Historian in Chief. Hes running to be President of the United States. The lands history is taught to children in classrooms across the country. Does it matter that Romney, as a Mormon, believes in a history that includes the assertion that Jesus Christ lived here and continued his teachings? That, without question, is different from the mainstream. Does he need to disavow it? No. Should he explain why these historical events are true if he believes them. Possibly.

Well, I guess he would certainly believe in American Exceptionalism.
Mormonism is a cult. Willard is a cultist. Case closed.
Maybe, but that choir! Simply marvelous.
A persons belief system is the core of their essence, it is who they are, everything they do/say is colored by that belief.
Romney is a temple mormon which means he has to swear to a certain set of beliefs. Some of which included that he will someday be a god of his own planet, that he maybe fulling the lds white horse prophecy, in baptizing for the dead, jesus is a created being, that god is a progressed being, that Mary had sex with god........just to name a few items.
These are at Romney’s core, it is who he is, add that to his liberalism, his mormonISM will be an issue.
Moral certainty is such a comfort.
If Mitt Romney is as conscientious about his business dealings and sense of honor and respect to his fellow man (not just Mormons), as any of the members of LDS with whom I have had contact, then there is no basis for this belief.
If the LDS people are cultists, I say, here’s to more cults of similar dedication to the well-being of their neighbors.
Not one strand of Hebrew DNA was found among them, utterly disproving the book of Mormon.
The breakaway LDS sect of mormonism made a change to the introduction page of the Book of Mormon....It read originally:
The book was written by many ancient prophets by the spirit of prophecy and revelation. Their words, written on gold plates, were quoted and abridged by a prophet-historian named Mormon. The record gives an account of the two great civilizations. One came from Jerusalem in 600 B.C., and afterward separated into two nations, known as the Nephites and the Lamanites. The other came much earlier when the Lord confounded the tongues at the Tower of Babel. This group is known as the Jaredites. After thousands of years, all were destroyed except the Lamanites, and they are the principal ancestors of the American Indians.
Changed in 2004 to:
"....the Lamanites, and they are among the ancestors of the American Indians.
....And people wonder where Romney learned to lie so easily.
If the people screaming "cult" voted anywhere near as conservatively as the Mormon rank and file, we wouldn't have a culturally Muslim president, who has more in common with A Qaida than Christianity.
If the LDS people are cultists, I say, heres to more cults of similar dedication to the well-being of their neighbors.

It would be nice, if their motivation was to just be good neighbors. However their motivation is getting people to join the Mormon church.
Utah leads the nation in White Collar crime and often lie to outsiders and cheat them and each other. They aren’t as honest as they claim or appear.
Regrading Romney, worldview matters and I know far too much about Mormonism to ever trust one in office. I used to be one.
By the time the MSM are done with him...come June...the “pedophile” polygamist Warren Jeffs of FLDS will look positively presidential next to him!!!
You don’t actually know anything about mormonISM do you? Your statements here are being viewed through the lens as of the SLC PR machine, and not reality.
Because their THEOLOGY says they are a non-Christian cult. Because their practices say they are a cult. Because every other Christian church does not recognize Mormons as Christians.
AFA voting conservatively, that is more PR from SLC. Mormons are not nearly as conservative on issues like Illigal immigration, abortion and gay rights as most people think.
And yes, I can source that.
Show evidence of mormons voting conservatively. People say that all the time, it simply is not true.
Very much so:
Another saved mormon here. If you have an LDS neighbor looking after your "well being", you'd better keep a close eye on your wife and daughters ! You're being set up to be his "eternal servant" and your wife and daughters his "eternal polygamist brides" !
Ask him about eternity sometime, what happens if you don't convert, who will look after your wife and daughters ? Really, ask him ! They teach that he who tries and fails to convert gets the eternal spoils of failure.
Note that the Senate is already under Mormon control.
