Skip to comments.Montana's Governor Schweitzer(D): "Romney’s father from ‘polygamy commune’ in Mexico"
Posted on 04/21/2012 4:44:33 PM PDT by tuckrdout
.Gov. Brian Schweitzer, talking Friday to a national news website, said Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney might shy from talking about his familys Mexican roots because they came from a polygamy commune in Mexico.
Schweitzer made the remark in an interview with The Daily Beast, a news and opinion website, after being asked whether Montana might be a swing state during this years 2012 election.
According to The Daily Beast, Schweitzer said Montana likely would vote for Romney, but that Romney, a Mormon, might have trouble nationally because his father, George Romney, was born on a polygamy commune in Mexico.
Schweitzer, a Democrat, said later that he wasnt misquoted, and that his comments had nothing to do with Romneys faith or his church, which does not condone polygamy.
Schweitzer said he was describing the dilemma facing Romney, who is in trouble with Hispanic voters because he took an ultra-right-wing position on immigration during the (Republican) primary.

So then, does that make Rick Santorum a Communist?
What many are unaware of is Mormons believe the office of president is uniquely connected to Mormonism in a variety of ways....
They have given it the name the White Horse Prophecy,.... (which they continually deny as all other truths recorded in their teachings which might seem offensive to some or create issues for them)... it basically states, that the U.S. Constitution will be hanging by a thread and a church elder from Zion will ride metaphorically on a white horse to save it.... This prophecy is interpreted 'by the majority' as a Mormon president saving the country.
Furthermore..they believe at this time a terrible revolution will take place in America, the land will be left without a Supreme Government. .. and that the Mormon religion would save America at this time.
But it is insulting to find a statement from the LDS Church on its Newsroom blogsite, when in fact their recorded history says otherwise time and again, the following:
"The so-called 'White Horse Prophecy' is based on accounts that have not been substantiated by historical research and is not embraced as Church doctrine" (January 6, 2010)
What this means to voters who are in the dark about LDS, their false teachings and anti-Christian beliefs, remains to be seen...I suspect most won't care...Christianity in our nation has been so watered down and infiltrated by false teachings and practices that the centrality of Jesus Christ has all but disappeared and we see simply lip service today....an easy target for the enemy of mens souls.
I would suspect none of these men have served in the Military...generally speaking Mormons don’t...a few here and there but over all they do not serve.
He denies that is his family? When was that?
Your ignorance of religions and ideologies is showing.
Good point — I guess if a guy has five wives and each has ten kids, then he might think that 50 was too much. One wife and ten kids, he could handle.
Straw man argument. There are no Presidential candidates that have beheaded anyone, murdered their daughter or declared war on the world. None.
Much better question you should be asking:
When was the last time a Mormon seized a government office and used it to further the killing of tens of thousands of innocent babies (many torn limb from limb, including the heads - all were someone's daughters or sons) - subsidized by the taxpayers - and then undermined the sacred institution of marriage by willfully appointing liberal, gay-favoring, judges, and followed that up by personally approving hundreds of gay marriages, and then followed it up by attacking the liberty of citizens using coercive government mandates?Gee, I can only think of one time and one Mormon who did this... and I'm guessing you want to pull the lever to put him in office?
and why are you pinging me to this comment?
Searching, reading various sites and articles, both mormon and otherwise. You might investigate it it yourself as well. ..and it’s pretty much known the Mormon youth go directly to the mission filed...bypassing enlistment altogether.
Then please feel free to post the numbers from each branch of the military along with your source.
Romney is despicable!!!
(How do you know I'm not?) :)
Hey...all I'd have to do is...
...become a Mormon...
...talk my would-be Lds bishop into a temple recommend...
...take two spouses in the Mormon temple...
...with a death separating the two...
...CURRENT Mormon teaching sayz I'd be an ETERNAL Mormon POLYGAMIST!!!
Not exactly 70 virgins forever...but hey...Current Mormons don't have to stop at two such spouses, either...as long as they take them consecutively -- sequentially outliving spouses -- they could "rack up" quite a harem in the celestial Mormon heaven.
(And Mormons coyly deny they teach or practice polygamy any more...what a crock that people buy their lies & deceptions...and if those aren't lies & deceptions...then that proves they don't buy their own "lines" from their "prophets" "apostles" and general authorities...which means the whole thing should collapse on its own weight)
Beyond that, I think I've distanced myself a bit more from my polygamist ancestor by saying it wasn't a moral thing to do...went against Gen. 2:24; Matt: 19:6; Deut. 17:17...Whereas the ONLY thing I've found that Romney has said on the subject attempted to justify it as building a family in the desert.
The OTHER HUGE difference is that Mormons have an "afterlife" structure for supposed "current" and alleged "future" polygamy, whereas I have no actual plans for either. Therefore Romney needs to answer to CURRENT Mormon policy on "eternal celestial polygamy" and McConkie's Mormon apostolic "prophesy" that the Mormons would return to earthly polygamy.
Does he believe it? If Ann Romney died [Ann has been diagnosed with MS for about 15 years], and he took another wife in the Mormon temple ... say during his would-be POTUS years or even post-POTUS years, does Romney believe that "teaching the nation" -- particularly the younger generations -- that "eternal polygamy" is A-OK???
