One network is doing an hour long show. Goal is to demotivate Christian voters.

How much coverage did Rev. Wright get?

I really hope that the Mormons have a series of commercials ready to counter the crazy stuff that the leftist media will throw at them to try and get something to stick to Romney.

No need to watch CNN for irrational attacks on Mormons. Heck there are 1000 post threads right here for that.

Truth is not an attack, and it is not irrational.
Only ignorance is irrational, are you irrational?

The counter resonse will have to be lies, because the reality is crazier and more cult like, than anything the MSM is going to say.

According to the MSM in 2008, a mans faith is a private matter. The MSM must have "evolved"..... now that the leading presidential candidate is a Republican.

Simple questions:

Would your rather live in Utah, a Mormon majority state, which embraces market economics?

Or in Zimbabwe, a state ruled by thugs who embrace Marxist economics like Obama does?

As I recall the Republicans tried to do this to John F. Kennedy. It did not work very well.

After about 5 seconds consideration I decided to opt for the Mormon. Although I do think Mormonism strange, I do not consider most Mormons to be strange, least of all Mitt Romney. Further, I don't believe his religion would conflict with his being an effective POTUS. He would be a vast improvement over the half-vast jerk now squatting in the White House.

Time for Romney to do the honorable thing and get out now.
The media will make his religion the issue.

You liberals are so predictable, never present evidence just innuendos and accusations.
Do something productive, like disprove what I said or just talk with your liberal friends high 5ing that you made a point which by the way you didn’t.

The media will give disproportional coverage to Mormonism compared to Obama and everything else that's taking this country straight down the tubes.

We don’t have any Mormon haters here, but we do have Christians like Jim Robinson that will speak out against Mormonism.

Rather than be a hater and lashing out at Christians, you should learn to accept that Christians have a right and a duty, to speak out on Mormonism, especially on this thread about a TV report on Mormonism.

I am not voting for Romney to be my pastor!

Romney doesn’t hate unborn, innocent babies, America, our military, white people, Christians....and so on and so on....

I own bibles (for the word) and Jesus Christ is my LORD and SAVIOR, I have no need for my presidents’ faith to effect my faith in GOD.

Since the thread is about Mormonism, it should probably be the topic, sometimes Islam is, sometimes, Scientology is, sometimes even Christianity is the topic.

And Harry Reed (I hear he likes to bugger little boys) is also a Mormon.

Either back up your claims that I support obama or go swimming.
I did not attack Romney I was talking about mormonism, stick to the issue buddy, and leave your liberal accusations to someone who cares.
mormonism will be laid bare, it will not be pretty and either you can learn about it so you can defend it or you will continue to post stupid remarks that mean nothing.
mormoism will seem bizarre to the normal person because it is, there is a reason mormons are secretive about their beliefs.
So get ready bud, the ride has only started.

I don't believe either choice in this election is a good one, but one is better less suicidal than the other.
