Skip to comments.A Mormon in the White House
Posted on 05/07/2012 10:36:51 AM PDT by kevcol
62% [of mormons] say that Americans are uninformed about the religion. Yet the reluctance of most Mormons to discuss their beliefs and customs with non-members only adds to secular suspicion that the church is a cult.
Romney would also be assigned two home teachers fellow Mormons who live in his vicinity and would visit with Romney once a month, probably in the White House, to counsel him on his faith and general emotional state
Less than two hours after my visit despite giving staffers only my first name and filling out no paperwork I was startled to get a voicemail on my cellphone from someone identifying himself as a prophet, saying that hed like to start interceding for your life and asking me to call an 800 number to join a prayer circle.
says that she specifically asked to be moved to [Sen. Harry] Reids Maryland chapel, because she has a relative whos gay and her former place of worship housed some older, bigoted congregants.
Shell be worshipping with Brother Romney should he win. Even if he loses, however, author Feldman thinks that his nomination itself is a watershed moment.
That so many Americans dont know hes a Mormon, and that his religion wasnt a factor in this primary as it was four years ago thats directional, he says. Its a historically significant moment, and its progress. Were improving as a country.

Good discription of mormonism
From the article:
“Yet the reluctance of most Mormons to discuss their beliefs and customs with non-members only adds to secular suspicion that the church is a cult. “
What the heck?
This journalist can’t be serious!
Just the other day, I had two Mormons show up on my doorstep wanting to talk about their beliefs!
In fact, once they got going, I couldn’t get them to shut up about their beliefs and customs long enough to get a single word in edgewise!!!
Of course, I’m fairly confident that THAT is the main reason people suspect Mormonism to be a cult!
P.S. - They finally shut up and left quite hastily when I was finally able to interrupt them long enough to inform them that my wife had been ex-communicated from the Mormon church!
Romney will have home schoolers and “0” has Ayers.
We have a commie in the WH who wears mama jeans and tosses a bb like a girly man, who never had a real girlfriend, and someone is worried about a Morman?
Give me a break!
For someone who seems to have at least attempted to do research for the article, she sure got an awful lot of simple things wrong.
I pick neither.
The Bishop is actually among the most devout, most devoted Mormons, a part of the most holy 15% of the members of Mormonism, a member of the inner sanctum, and of higher status than almost all of even that 15% of the most devout.
Could be that oath under penalty of having throat cut from ear to ear, and tongue torn out by its roots ..
Mormons rarely discuss their religious beliefs. They discuss their church’s religious beliefs.
Protestants have a hard time with this because we rarely follow our church’s beliefs completely.
For instance, I am a Methodist but I have a Presbyterian view of Communion.
“Theres official Mormonism with its clean if severe living ideals, then there is nod-and-wink Mormonism. Mitt is more characterized by the second.”
Yeah, just like the ‘Wink, Wink, Nod, Nod Catholics who look the other way as regards the likes of Pelosi, Biden, Sebillius, et.al, who routinely go against the tenets of their religion, to say nothing of the hoards of “secular progressive Jews.” who sell out their people in Israel ( as well as those here in the US). I will venture a guess that even the vaunted “Evangelicals” have non-adherents in their midst though they are too pious to admit it.
Absolutely, my FRiend. I'll support a Mormon (even one named Willard) over a Marxist (and/or a muslim), and I'll do so with great energy and enthusiasm.
America and Americans and our ways and our culture and our freedoms and our property are in jeopardy; and, I fear that there could be no coming back from an Obama second term.
Mormons will try to convert you, but they are extremely reluctant to discuss their beliefs and customs with non-Mormons.
Get the Priests over to your house and try to ask some in-depth questions, you will see evasiveness, slipperiness, and out and out denial that you will never see in a Christian missionary.
“Meat before Milk” Mormons are trained to bring you along slowly and feed you only enough information for that stage of indoctrination.
And the main thing that Romney has over 0bama in this election? One of them HATES America and the other does not.
See post 29, and we can assume that Bishop Romney will ascend to higher levels within the religion in time.
The Bishop is not an indifferent Mormon, he is one of it’s most devoted leaders.
The McCain/Palin ticket was up ++4 to 10 pts
in some polls, days prior to Election 2008.
So rather than helping the GOP, Romney and
TeamROMNEY and the RNME (Republican National Media Establishment)
decided to attack Gov. Palin to throw Election2008.
Romney, and the Van der Sloot RNME RINOs for Obama in 2008
Late in October, The American Spectator's The Prowler revealed:
"Former Mitt Romney presidential campaign staffers
have been involved in spreading anti-Palin spin to reporters, seeking to diminish her standing after the election.
'Sarah Palin is a lightweight, she won't be the first, not even the third, person people will think of when it comes to 2012,'
says one former Romney aide
'The only serious candidate ready to challenge to lead the Republican Party is Mitt Romney.
"Some former Romney aides were behind the recent leaks to media, including CNN, that Governor Sarah Palin was a 'diva' and was going off message intentionally."
The Palmetto Scoop reported: "One of the first stories to hit the national airwaves was
the claim of a major internal strife between close McCain aides and the folks handling his running mate Sarah Palin."
"Im told by very good sources that this was indeed the case and that a rift had developed, but it was between Palins people and the staffers brought on from the failed presidential campaign of former Gov. Mitt Romney, not McCain aides."
"The sources said nearly 80 percent of Romneys former staff was absorbed by McCain and these individuals were responsible for what amounts to a premeditated, last-minute sabotage of Palin."
aides loyal to Romney inside the McCain campaign, said The Scoop, reportedly saw
that Palin would be a serious contender for the Republican nomination in 2012 or 2016, which made her a threat to another presidential quest by Romney.
"These staffers are now out trying to finish her off .hoping it would ingratiate themselves with Mitt Romney."
"Who's the Palin Leaker from the McCain Campaign?
National Review Online The publication of a Vanity Fair profile of Sarah Palin
appears to have opened old wounds in the McCain campaign.
... the source of the Diva leak was Nicolle Wallaces husband."
Liberation theology or Mormonism...? If these are my choices when voting, I will go Mormonism. As reasons for why I wish I had a different candidate than Romney, Mormonism is down there in the non issue pile.
I would for for a devoted satanist or death row convict over obama at this point.
A B O !!!!
