Cher refuses to back down from anti-Mormon slur
KTVX-TV ^ | July 2, 2012 | Dan Metcalf Jr.

Posted on 07/02/2012 5:31:22 PM PDT by 2ndDivisionVet

Cher is refusing to back down from a Twitter comment she posted on Friday that is considered a slur against members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The pop singer and passionate Democrat sent out the tweet urging President Barack Obama and his aides to get organized or risk losing November's election to Republican Romney, who is a Mormon.

Cher's tweet said: "I Feel if he (Obama) doesn't get all his DUCKS IN A ROW we'll b forced 2 listen 2Uncaring Richy Rich! The whitest man in MAGIC UNDERWEAR in the WH (White House)."

Some news agencies reported that LDS leaders were upset over the reference to the garment won by faithful adult members of the church to remind them of sacred temple ordinances.

ABC 4 called a representative for the Church who said no LDS leaders ever issued a response to the tweet, nor would they be expected to.

Several people claiming to be Mormons were upset with Cher for making the remark, and responded directly to Cher via Twitter. One person called her an "anti-Mormon bigot."

cher I Feel if he doesn't get all his DUCKS IN A ROW we'll b forced 2 listen 2Uncaring Richy Rich! The whitest man in MAGIC UNDERWEAR in the WH Jun 29th, 2012 at 9:24am

Referring to the garment as "magic" is considered a derogatory slur by many faithful members of the church.

Cher is not the first prominent figure to catch heat over a tweet about the garments.

In February during a GOP primary debate, New York Times columnist Charles Blow tweeted: "Let me just tell you this Mitt "Muddle Mouth": I'm a single parent and my kids are *amazing*! Stick that in your magic underwear."

Blow later apologized, saying, "Btw, the comment I made about Mormonism during Wed.'s debate was inappropriate, and I regret it. I'm willing to admit that with no caveats."

A Buzzfeed.com article described Mormon garments as "...a rough equivalent of Jews' yarmulkes or tzitzit."

Buzzfeed's article also noted:

"It's difficult to imagine a Times writer making a similar joke about a Jewish politician."

Cher has the mindset of a dirty old man and I wouldn’t be surprised if she is dealing with dementia. Her relentless allegiance to zero is embarrassing.

Cher, a woman who came into the spotlight when she starred in a movie with Olympia Dukakis the same year Michael Dukakis was the presidential nominee.

What ever became of Olympia after her Oscar anyway?

I guess throwing unwashed, streaky underwear at her when she appears in public might be appropriate.

Yea, just who the H is Cher? Another faux Indian squaw, teeny bopper attached to much older man (”Sonny”). She’s a maven of Gay set, who “think” she’s in drag. Maybe she is. Who cares?

Poor Cher.
Her daughter must’ve gotten her self-loathing for being a woman from mommy and jumped to the other team.
How does it feel to be a failure at motherhood AND marriage, Cher?

So what?

There are a few (only a handful, thank God) of Freepers here (more than likely, bitter, "Paul Bots") who ALMOST DAILY (due to their IRRATIONAL hatred of Mormons, though NOT ONE can verbalize their reasons therefore, other than some massacre which happened 155 years ago) demonize, insult, disrespect and otherwise, attack Mormonism.

Of course these same delusional (oh, but "Principled" dontcha know?) Freeps NEVER, EVER, attack the "Religion of Pieces" (or Dear Leader's continued defense or even support thereof as well as having recruited several members of the Muslim Brotherhood) and how it is a REAL threat to our Security and Survival.

BEAM ME UP SCOTTY!!!

With all due respect, Cher came into the spotlight somewhere around 1965 when she teamed up with Sonny Bono. They had a weekly network TV show that was a big deal in pre-cable days. Their then-daughter/now-son was prominently featured in every show. Cher may be an imbecile but her fame has nothing whatsoever to do with Olympia Dukakis.

Well that’s an incredibly ignorant lie. Just two days ago I utilized Free Republic as a resource during an online debate with a Mormon cultist. There are TONS of reasons to hate MormonISM, and there are literally thousands of threads breaking Mormonism apart from every angle, tackling every lie of Mormonism and providing valuable evidence. It’s even more useful than the book Kingdom of the Cults.

With my use of the information here on FR, the Mormon was reduced to ranting and raving (in text form) saying, since I did not have a Theology degree, that I have no background for interpreting Joseph Smith’s and Brigham Young’s claims of Mormons living on the sun and the moon, and other various retard/fraudulent claims that Mormonism makes.

Mormonism is an anti-Christian cult which damns those who follow it and sucks them into a culture and an environment that suppresses freedom of thought, and encourages ignorance and deception on the part of its members.

These are good reasons to hate MormonISM for a Christian, whose chief concern is the Truth (Jesus being THE Truth) and the refutation of Demonic lies. Of course, maybe you aren’t actually a Christian.

I have a clear reason to tell the truth about Mormonism - it leads people to hell. I don’t want them to go there.

Her resurgence in fame came in the 1980s and again in the 1990s when she used a digital device that became standard practice in the pop-gay-dance-disco world.

She'd be another 60s one-name hasbeen along with Melanie if it wasn't for Oscar films like Moonstruck and Mask in the 1980s. Do EITHER of those Oscar winners make top 100 films lists?

Snore. Has been. Skank.

Did I even mention Obama in my response to the apologists? So if we comment against MormonISM or Mittens, all of a sudden we’re picking Obozo?

That doesn’t make any logical sense.

Congratulations Holy Agent of Christ RaisingCain on your unmitigated success in inciting a fellow conservative to rage in a theological debate here on FreeRepublic.

While our nation faces the greatest legislative, financial, and security threats in its history, when most conservatives of faith are nightly praying to the Lord God Almighty to spare our once-great nation, you find the time to attack a fellow Freeper on the grounds that you consider his faith to be a cult.

Lukewarm Christians may feel that allying with a group of wholesome people whose religious trappings (albeit contrary to your teachings) do not instill counter-conservative values is OK, but not you! You go that extra mile and cast down the enemy of our collective enemy: The Liberal.

The Obama Campaign salutes you! And as an added bonus, I daresay that upon dying you’ll receive a merit badge for helping God out with all that tedious judging! (I hear God loves it when you decide for Him who is saved and who isn’t!)

On a less tongue-in-cheek note, hows about we reserve our hate for that which stifles liberty. For that which destroys ambition? For that which holds the Constitution in contempt? For that which weakens our borders? Or even for that which unduly taxes the efforts of our most productive? There’ll be plenty of time to hate the Mormons, the Pastafarians, or the squeaky-voiced after that, eh slugger?
