(CNN) Liberty University students and alumni are accusing the Christian school of violating its own teachings by asking Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, a member of the Church of...Mormons, to deliver its 2012 commencement address.
By Friday morning, more than 700 comments had been posted on the schools Facebook page about the Thursday announcement a majority of them decidedly against the Chancellor Jerry Falwell Jr.s invitation, citing that the school had taught them Mormonism isnt part of the Christian faith.

And keeps the WOW?
I did, and my point stands. If you missed the clear implication that such a reaction to Catholicism OR Mormonism is equally outrageous, I'd suggest you have another look.

Well, that's interesting. But it isn't an insular cult, no----no way. /s
I’m Mormon and a Christian. I believe in Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and rely on Him for my salvation.
Sorry Dude; but there is NO evidence to back up your claim.
Give us some PROOF that you are a MORMON; as you claim.
Spout some MORMONism's; affirm what Living Prophet's® have said...

I believe in The Church of JESUS CHRIST of Latter-day Saints as my ONLY way to enter into GOD's glory, and rely on it for my salvation knowledge.

Hi Elsie —
I have been ‘spouting’ my Mormon beliefs here for quite a while here on and off. Not sure what proof I can provide of my LDS membership, however. You may just have to go on faith that I am what I say.
>Youd think that in America we could come up with one single solitary Christian to run for president. Couldnt we find ONE???<
As a matter of fact, yes. He’s a conservative, to boot:
Ooh...large type...this is serious.
We're electing a president, not a Church official.
Now respond hysterically....
#1 Talk to WorldNetDaily about its all-cap style...I try to post threads pretty close to how they are posted elsewhere.
#2 This shows you aren't a very observant poster...since WorldNetDaily does this with all -- or about all -- of its threads...and didn't treat this story any different. See for yourself: WND
To think I actually have to spend my time commenting on your most trivial of trivial comments about what size type WND cares to utilize shows you your mind must be totally on empty today. (And hopefully it's only today...go have a cup of coffee and read & learn somethin' new)
(I see you were referencing the type @ the top of the article...not the all caps of the headline...there wasn’t room for the sub-title of the headline within the headline (too many characters)...so I simply distinguished the sub-head from the article...
Sorry, I usually don’t visit WND. Can’t go everywhere.
oh sure it will...remember, that church is only about 150 years old. Don't you think that the Catholic church (christianity) made a few changes in its first few hundred years????of course it did. While I certainly do not agree with the teachings of the Mormon religion, I can understand how they might alter their views as they grow more mature.
remember that before Brown VS board of education, separate but equal was the policy in the US education system. Remember Orville Faubus and George Wallace (both Democrats and "christian") tried to keep blacks out of schools in Alabama and Arkansas....they relented, as did the Mormons, and now the black kids can go to school in their states....isn't that wonderful??
To the BOOK?
You are thinking of MORMONism.
That a GOVERNMENTAL unit flips back and forth?
You seem mighty determined to cast the spotlight on anything other than MORMONism and it's INSTITUTIONALIZED racism.
The FACTS of which are STILL found in it's 'scripture'.
Nothing will handwave the TRUTH of the matter away.
I don't think we can ever transcend Joseph Smith or consider him to be a valued personality, but now we'll move on.I don't think you'll see that among believers in the faith, because there are too many other things that came from himthat are the reasons why we do what we do and we are what we are. That there are unanswered questions, to be sure.That there are things that I'm as anxious as the next guy to learn more detail on, I really want to know. But in the interim,it really doesn't, doesn't trouble me.We're in the religion-making business, as you intimated earlier, only for a short time, I mean, compared to theChristian church, which has been at this for a couple of millennia. We're about halfway to Nicaea.And so, and so in that sense I remember a very tender moment. I was speaking with I've been invitedto the Salt Lake Theological Seminary, basically an Evangelical seminary, to discuss a book I had done on Jesus.And they had read it, and they wanted me to come and just respond to questions.And it was, it was a very enjoyable couple of hours.The very last question that was asked by one of my friends there was this one.He said, 'Bob, what can we do for you?'And I, I wasn't ready for that question. I said, 'What do you mean?'He said, 'What can we, as Evangelicals, do for our Mormon friends?'And I, I guess my mind could have gone a hundred different ways, but what I came back with was this.I said, 'Boy, I appreciate you asking that. I don't think I've ever been asked that.'But, but I said, 'Try this. Cut us a little slack, will you? Give us a little time.We're in the religion-making business, and this takes time. It takes centuries.And, and trying to explain the faith and articulate the faith, that doesn't come over night.We've really only been about that for 20 or 30 years.'
I can't; when they've advertised that the religion has been RESTORED!!
NOTHING would change!
That there HAVE been changes PROVES it's initial claims to be FALSE.
How abot EXPEDIANT, instead?
