Bill Maher, the largest donor to President Obama's super PAC, called Mormonism a "cult" on his HBO show last night, and said that donating money to that religion doesn't count as charity because it's "bulls---."

Harry Reid is a Mormon so he’s part of that cult.

Better Joe Smith and Brigham Young than Karl Marx and Jeremiah Wright...

...JS & BY may have been a little unorthodox but at least they didn't proselytize class hate, racism, treason and bigotry like KM & JW.

While I'm willing to debate the differences between Mormons and Christianity I see nothing inherently wrong with Mormons morality in general and Mitt Romney in particular. He appears to be a good husband and father as far as I can see.

“JS & BY may have been a little unorthodox but at least they didn’t proselytize class hate, racism, treason and bigotry like KM & JW.”

Well....let’s have a look at that list:

Class hate: Wherever the Mormons went, they established their presence, froze out other businesses, silenced any opposition press (see how JS died), and regarded all non-Mormons as apostates from the `true faith’ of JS.

Racism: Blacks ineligible for the “Melchezidek priesthood” until 1978 when this changed due to Federal pressure.

Treason: The Utah Territory was set up as the Deseret empire and Federal troops were held at bay until the Mormons began eyeing the advantages of statehood.

Bigotry: Directed against Christian non-Mormons aka “gentiles” to this very day. Catholics are especially condemned as adherents of “the great and abominable church”.

Ha ha ha, if Mormonism is a cult, then what about that islam thing to Obammy belongs? Violence, brain washing, goat sex...islam has it all. Mormons by comparison are more like Jehovah’s Witnesses or Hari Krishnas - just goofy and sometimes annoying.

Gee Bill, does that mean I can donate to Catholic Christians, Jewish, Islamic, Buddhist, and Hindu religions and you're good? I thought you thought all religions are BS. Your so-called humor often rants against the above religions as being cultish, well, except for Islam which you are too cowardly to denigrate.

I know Christians will tell me I'm not suppose to hate, but I actually hate you - you little pr*ck. Guess we have that in common since you hate just about everything that doesn't fit into your intolerant viewpoint.

They call it the "whore of Babylon".

The Catholic church, rightfully, calls mormonism a cult.

All faiths had and still have odd dogmas many can find politically incorrect—kind of like judging the conservative politician Rick Santorum on the few instances where he was wrong while ignoring the many instances when he was right—and we can expect Obama, oh, and those like you too now, I suppose, to concentrate on the negatives of Obama’s opponent.

So you are a big fan of Karl Marx and Jeremiah Wright then?

Liberalism is the largest cult of all with its blind followers, death worship, tolerance of theft, envy, racism, etc.

In fact, I can’t think of any one more dangerous, except Islam.

Well, Pope B16 confirmed a few years back the establish AND CODIFIED doctrine from the Second Vatican Council that the non Catholic followers of Christ are not true Christians and therefore cannot have legitimate churches.

Yep, the dogma of religious bigotry embedded in the archives of the “one true church.”

Living in glass houses and all that...

This is hate speech against a particular group of people that is politically motivated. Maher should be held to task and give back those donations and spend, oh, about 150 years in jail.

“So you are a big fan of Karl Marx and Jeremiah Wright then?”

Whoa, that’s a stretch! No, I don’t believe in the moral equivalence argument that states “all paths are valid” and that all religions have equal value. Mormonism is especially intolerant of the validity of other faiths (though curiously silent about Islam, check it out) but I admit it is far less murderous on that score than Islam.

So..... explain, please the logic underlying your conclusion that I am a fan of Karl Marx & Jeremiah Wright.

BTW, your handle “Happy Rain” suggests you are female. Do some research into the treatment of women according to the practices of Mormonism, starting with Joseph Smith & Brigham Young, and then get back to me.

Yes, Liberalism is the most cultish thing around. Anybody who has expressed an opposing opinion to one of them knows what I mean. They put their finges in their ears and say lalalalalala, then they run away and refuse to speak to you ever again.

The original premise was:

Who are more dangerous?

Joseph Smith and Brigham Young or Karl Marx and Jeremiah Wright?

Your post was only a little ambiguous on the question as you responded with Mormon negatives suggesting your answer was not Karl Marx and Jeremiah Wright.

If I responded to your response incorrectly it was not out of illogic.

BTW “Happy Rain” was a popular local TV personality when I was a little BOY:)

There is no doubt it is a cult. If it doesn’t believe in the Salvation of Jesus Christ for all of your sins, it isn’t Christian. Why should anybody deny it is?

As far as I know, the only thing Mormons and Islam share are polygamy.

Mormons believe in baptism of the dead, but I am pretty sure they don't believe in sex with the dead.

But the last time I check the main LDS no longer practice polygamy. I’m sure there are some sects of Mormonism that still do.

So you think Karl Marx and Jeremiah Wright are better?

Marx was responsible for over a hundred fifty million murders in the 20th Century alone and Wright has indoctrinated a US president in the evils of class hate and racism.

If the Mormans were as bad as you exaggerate they would be at least a little more infamous than they are. Some had bad intent but their history of wickedness is as a bug fart in a hurricane compared to the terrible repercussions of Karl and Jeremiah's intent.

One needs no such heated hyperbole to describe the evils of communism and black nationalist racism.

As a long time Freeper, every once in a while I find amusement by glancing through the extreme and distorted posts made by the small numbers of members of a FreeRepublic.com-based virulently anti-Mormon Cult with their silly assertions about the church.

Anyone interested in learning about an organization - such as the LDS Church, would be wise to go to the source, such as www.LDS.org.

You're welcome to join the conversation unless you are content to sit on the sidelines and lob in an insult now and then.

Anyone interested in learning about an organization - such as the LDS Church, would be wise to go to the source, such as www.LDS.org.

If you actually check these sites out as you claim, then you couldn't have missed the fact that "the small numbers of members of a FreeRepublic.com-based virulently anti-Mormon Cult with their silly assertions about the church" use copious amounts of materials from official LDS sites. We constantly are confronted by Mormons who say "we don't believe that" when the official documents of the LDS "Church" says it is official doctrine.

An Obama reelection, on the other hand, would be the instant ugly death of America.

Why I'm voting for Mitt???

the question is rhetorical, right?

“I don't want Obama reelected” isn't a good enough answer?

If not, I guess we have reached an impasse and must agree to disagree.

(”I don't want Obama reelected” a bad thing? Amazing! but then blowing off the atrocities of Hitler and Stalin should have been an obvious hint--but I would like to know how many American Christians were killed by Stalinist Communists in Korea or Hitler's Wehrmacht in Europe--but I'm sure not near as many as were killed by Mormons in America;)
