Posted on 05/07/2012 8:41:01 PM PDT by Free ThinkerNY
WASHINGTON (AP) Rick Santorum is endorsing his one-time bitter rival Mitt Romney in a late-night e-mail to his supporters.
Santorum on Monday urged his supporters to join him in working with the effective Republican nominee to deny President Barack Obama a second term.

And we are ALL sinners. (I'm pretty sure you understand that).
That is why I am leaving this thread. I am a sinner, and the temptation to lash back at those who continue to deliberately misconstrue the truth, or defend those mistruths, has become too great.
Validation again, thanks.
You have not sinned against me, there is nothing to forgive.
Good. Thank you.
I wish I could say the reverse is true.
(I really don't like being lied about).
I'll check back a long time later to see if you understand what you've done.
If not, please don't post to me again.
(I really, really don't like being lied about).
My gosh...once again this dialogue has showing clearly that when you side with the enemy it will change you....always. But they never see it themselves as it takes hold.
Another reason I will not be voting for Romney....if one does so they soon will be supporting him in other ways and then they’ll be cheering him on....it’s a “Progressive” thing.
Are you going to slap my hand next?
Do I need to go to my room and think about it?
What I don’t get desert tonight?
It is amazing, isn’t it.
I think I need to go to the time out chair and just wait till the timer goes off, so I understand what I have done.
Keep up the good work.
You are correct, I will not vote for a liberal even if they define themselves as Republicans, been there done that - never again.
Wait until the convention, when Romney gives a pretty speech and not everyone on FR falls in line behind him then. It’s really going to ramp up.
Such is life!
Yep. Hold on, conservatives will be in for quite a ride the next months.
Yes, that will happen......and that line is going to be increasing as this moves along. It’s happening now as the Piper Pipes. ...read someones post they’re now fully in Romneys court...of all things after a single speech.
Since when do we believe anything Romney says? They have indeed taken the bait and more...jumped into the boat!
We see this on the threads as well...as posters supporting Romney get mouthier and loose the ability to rightly support their position...they lash out...and then question themselves for doing so....it becomes a thing of confusion inwardly.
The man is a serial liar. He lied about his own NAME at one of the debates. I would have trouble ever believing anything out of his mouth.
Just a day or so ago, I saw someone say they would vote for a devoted Satanist to get Obama out. That chilled me like nothing I’ve seen posted on this issue.
Romney is a liar, pro abortion, pro homosexual agenda, pro gun grab, pro big government, pro government mandate, pro welfare.......BHO white.
As you, I will not vote for another liberal, even if they self identity themselves as Republican - I am done - never again.
If I was capable of photo hopping, I would stick Romney’s picture on the image of the move poster Idiocracy.
Now why would I do that?
If you do not wish to confront false teachings in a public forum; that is your choice.
I, however, do.
Evidently I am not doing it in the 'correct' manner'.
What is the difference between irrational hatred for Romney and a ration revulsion against the false teachungs the he publically admits to believeing in?

What criteria do you use when judging me to be desparate?
But, you must admit, that you do a damned good job of ACCUSING folks to be Obama trolls!
Hold this thought.
Ok then; just who does?
Name names; but show the evidence; too.
Hold THIS one; too.
Good; as you FINALLY admit to following at least SOME of MORMONism rules and regulations!
I know this is bound to lead to more questions or accusations from you or others...none of which I believe are for the purposes of you actually wanting to know what we believe or why...instead, they are clearly meant to try and catch me or some other LDS member in their words, or in some trap set up by which you can then "expose" us for some kind of heretics in your view.
Of COURSE it is!
Will you 'contend' for your faith or not?

That's ok, as MormonDude is sitting on the bench, yelling, "Put me in coach!"
Complain about the 'tone' and 'no respect' and ignore theology observations?
It's "hanging by a thread".
Like you did ME? in 279??
As long as you repent of the known ones...
Unless you can work 'guessing' and/or 'assuming' into the conversation.
The self-righteousness has become comical. Yelping at others for "judging", while trying to send other Freepers to the time-out corner to reflect on their sins, LOL.
Exactly right. From the time I first found out what Romney really is (thanks to FR), I knew I’d never cast a vote for him. That’s not going to change.
“Yes mormonism teaches that the lds jesus was created, not eternal. That the lds jesus was conceived by sexual intercourse with Mary and the lds god.
Yes mommonism teaches that the lds god was once a man who earned his godhood status.
Yes mormonism teaches that without Joseph Smith there would be no lds salvation, that he will sit with the lds jesus and decide who gets in to one of their celestial levels of lds glory.”

Elsie, I didn’t include your quote, thanks, another Mormon
belief! God the Holy Spirit is...are the thoughts between the Father and “son.”
JeffHead, where are you?
Speak to everyone of these, maybe one at a time. Non-Trinitarian, the basics of Christianity you reject and oh my gosh!!!
If someone came along in the 1800s and said God gave me
the above personal revelation, Jeff, you should run from
We have a President who voted for infanticide! His opponent, our hope to remove Obama from office, is a bishop, right.... in a “church”, right... who believes this crazy nonsense!
“btw, your desperate attempt in your last post to me -on the other hijacked thread- to continue your spamming of it (as you are clearly doing on this thread), was really amusing.”
~ ~ ~
No one is hijacking, everyone already knows who Romney is
on a secular level. Go to the spiritual and you see why, the reason for Romney’s actions.
The importance, it’s #1, why our nation needs a Christian leader. See...with the help of God’s presence, His “grace” in a person, Romney doesn’t have the “grace.”
How can God help Romney if he rejects who God is?
I have been reminded of why I never tread on "religion" threads, and have tried to whenever possible, avoid arguments with fellow believers (and assume all three of you are, though I don't know your hearts, and you don't know mine).
Because of my belief in this verse from Romans, and my conviction that I have not behaved as Christ would have me behave in getting involved in this spitting contest, and because the only result of being 'tripled teamed' here would be hurt and unChristlike anger on my part, I ask all of you to forgive me, and will exit this conversation with you.
May the peace of Christ dwell with you richly as you seek to serve HIM, and as you struggle to find the best way to do that, here on FR, and in your 'real' lives.
In as much as it is up to me, I will try to live in peace with you. Please hold me to account if I fail to do that.
If it eases your Spirit I will forgive you, however, in my opinion, you have done nothing to ask forgiveness for.
I also understand that the alternative in this election is a hardcore Marxist atheist with Muslim leanings who hates the country and all it stands for, and who possesses an unprecedented arrogance and deep seeded animosity toward morality and the Christian faith, including the 1st amendment right to exercise that faith.
That's the trump card, spiritually speaking, for me.
I would, however, appreciate it if you didn't go around posting publicly that I'm not a Christian.
I suppose it's a matter of pride on my part, and that I shouldn't care, but I really don't like being lied about, especially when it comes to my faith in Christ.
I am most decidedly NOT like Him when it comes to being falsely accused publicly, and understand that it's something I need to continue working on as I mature in my faith.
So if you don't mind, please stop doing it.
Show me the post where I said that.
“I believe in redemption through the blood of Jesus Christ, and that prayer can change hearts.

Thank you for your sincere reply. Jesus Christ redeemed
mankind. A person will make it to Heaven with the help of His grace, meaning our cooperation with God’s grace in making our free will choices until the moment we die.
Truly, prayer changes hearts.
I disagree, the two men are the same. Actually, Romney is worse, he’s secret about who he really is, BHO is upfront.
To “con” people, Romney is saying he is now for life when his actions do not support his lying words. And Mitt supports “sodomy” the same as Obama (as evil BHO is now trying to “con” everyone into thinking he isn’t pro-homosexual marriage). It’s back to the two of them being the same.
I can’t forget, it’s on record...
Romney bragged just to win election in Massachusetts that his very own mother supported abortion by her “actions”, how nuts and we want him as President. No.
Pray everyone, dearest God in Heaven, we need a miracle.
It was in post 260 where you started lying outright about me, and that had to do with accusing me of being "an adamant Romney supporter" (absurd beyond all reason).
Just stop. That's all I'm asking.
He is a pathological liar who claimed to be a Christian to get elected and is in reality an atheist or a Muslim, and that's preferable??
I agree that we need a miracle, but denying Obama's dangerous pathology is not helpful in this discussion.
The only time he's been "upfront" is today when he said he was for homosexual marriage.
Of course, the fact that he lied through his teeth about it to get elected doesn't help your argument, does it?

Well, lookey here, unkus. Another figment of our collective imaginations. :)
Trying to help you personally, not argue. Give an explanation to these:
Yes mormonism teaches that the lds jesus was created, not eternal.
That the lds jesus was conceived by sexual intercourse with Mary and the lds god.
Yes mommonism teaches that the lds god was once a man who earned his godhood status.
Yes mormonism teaches that without Joseph Smith there would be no lds salvation, that he will sit with the lds jesus and decide who gets in to one of their celestial levels of lds glory
The Third person of the Blessed Trinity are the thoughts between the Father and the “son.”
p.s. Big news, like we didn’t know, Obama is for homosexual marriage.
I stand by my #260 post, which has been verified as the conversation has continued. My conclusion is also validated (although it doesn't actually matter) by what you have also posted to others here in this thread.
This is what I wrote (#260): However, you are fitting the definition of a RomneyBot, MittBot (whatever the word today is), your rabid support for anyone not BHO is coloring you view of that liberal called Romney. Your adamant support for that liberal called Romney is starting to be suspicious.
The bridge isn’t big enough for all of them to hide under.
They’ll really be showing their ugly warts between now and Nov.
You needed the last word. You have had it.

Where is the humor in this subject? I don’t know what “unkus” means?
Obama has been “upfront”, look at his record, it’s all against God.
