Mitt Romney: Mormon Candidate at Baptist Liberty University Moves Catholic Editor
Catholic Online ^ | 5/14/12 | Keith A Fournier

Posted on 05/14/2012 9:41:32 AM PDT by tcg

...The fact that a Mormon, a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, would be the commencement speaker at the Baptist University founded by Dr Jerry Falwell speaks to the urgency of the hour. Add to this the fact that this Catholic Editor in Chief of Catholic Online would consider the speech important enough to make it the lead article, and the point is made even clearer...

...The Romney candidacy raises a certain irony. Here we had a Mormon candidate who went to Liberty University and addressed a crowd which has major disagreement with his religious faith. However, it was this candidate who affirmed the fundamental moral values which inform the foundations of the American experiment in ordered liberty. He did so in a way which even made this Catholic Editor look twice at his candidacy.

I contend that I have more in common theologically with Liberty's Baptists as a Catholic Christian - though I am sure some present in Lynchburg on Saturday would disagree. However, Mitt Romney hit a home run in Lynchburg, Virginia on Saturday. That commencement address was not only a great speech, it also inspired me at an important moment.

...This Mormon candidate who spoke at that Baptist Liberty University is looking better and better to this Catholic citizen as the fall Presidential race approaches. The future of the American experiment in ordered liberty is at risk.We do indeed share common values which are essential for our future as a free people. Mitt Romney is correct, "we can meet in service, in shared moral convictions about our nation stemming from a common worldview."

Governor Romney did not attempt to argue the compatibility of his own religious faith and that of most of the graduates. I was relieved. He told the graduates and their guests, "People of different faiths, like yours and mine, sometimes wonder where we can meet in common purpose, when there are so many differences in creed and theology. Surely the answer is that we can meet in service, in shared moral convictions about our nation stemming from a common worldview." He is right.

I wonder how Christian it is to ignore Romney’s support of gay adoption while jumping up and down screaming about Obama’s support of gay marriage.

The Baptist church and this Baptist University as well as the Catholic church says that mormonism is a cult, which makes the following an understatement of major proportions:

addressed a crowd which has major disagreement with his religious faith

Well, the Catholic Church wouldn't use the word "cult" for Mormonism. It would use the word "heresy."

That said, I consider that my #1 priority in November is the removal from office of Barack Obama.

“The Baptist church and this Baptist University as well as the Catholic church says that mormonism is a cult, which makes the following an understatement of major proportions:”

Just because they “say” it doesn’t make it so! I just imagine there are faiths that consider Baptists and Catholics to be cults too, not that that is a true statement either.” I have not been a fan of Romney’s even though I was born a Mormon, but what he said at Liberty is right on the money. We are not electing a religious leader, we are electing a president.

Ronald Reagan could not have been an elder at my church but he made for an excellent president of the United States. If Romney wants to run my church, he’ll need to make huge changes in his beliefs first but it he wants to run my country, although I can think of many I’d rather see in office, he is far more qualified than the one that’s presently got the job.

Everything Romney is, is because he is a mormon. If you understand mormonism you will understand Romney.

“Well, the Catholic Church wouldn’t use the word ‘cult’ for Mormonism. It would use the word ‘heresy.’

Excellent point.

Strictly speaking, if we followed the sentiments of those who have ruled out Romney because of his religion, we Catholics would not have been able to vote for any presidential candidate except Kennedy, because, in Catholic teaching, all the rest were either heretics or apostates.

So, although I don’t really understand Mormonism, and Romney is far from my first choice, I prefer him to the “christian” Obama.

Gay marriage? The Bible? Christian beliefs?

So when Mitt says Marriage has been ‘one man and one woman for thousands of years’ he does so as a person whose faith rewrote the cultural norms of marriage as recently as 21 years before Reagan was born. How can this be?

Bull Romney is being ruled out because he is a liberal just like BHO. Romney is who he is because he is a mormon not in spite of it. You seriously need to learn about mormonism to know Romney’s core.

At least those groups don’t worship multiple gods as mormonism does. In all my long years I have never heard a Protestant call Catholicism a cult, lots of differences but the basic eternal God, the Cross and Reserection are the same, not even close with mormonism.

You really need to learn about mormonism.

Fear and ignorance is the rule of the day.

Christians are now reduced to putting lipstick on their motivations for supporting this self proclaimed Progressive heading a Republican ticket, but it doesn’t really change the fact.

Do we understand what a Progressive is? It’s the Progressive Black Caucas, it’s Hillary Clinton, it’s Maxine Waters, Barbara Lee, etc. These are people who are but a knotch under being communists and some are among the communist party, according to the communist party.

Conservatives and the religious Right have been boxed in, and apparently are willing to stay there, trusting what they see over their own conscience and the unseen.

Most all Christians are taught that there is no temptation wherein God does not supply an “out”.

If this should be God’s test, we’re failing it. In spades.

If the word “cult” is defined by a group of like minded individuals gathered around some singular article of faith or opinion, then the word has lots its punch.

In the post Christian era of the USA, we have been divided into many cults—even cult movie viewers, so the word doesn’t carry the punch of insult it use to carry.

We had been considering attending Thomas Road Baptist Church, which is the church affiliated with LU. But after those people brought Romney on board to speak two days after he said it was the right of homosexuals to adopt children——forget it.

"People of different faiths, like yours and mine, sometimes wonder where we can meet in common purpose, when there are so many differences in creed and theology. Surely the answer is that we can meet in service, in shared moral convictions about our nation stemming from a common worldview."

He's not right until definitions are understood. Though deferring faiths might use the same verbiage...their definition of meaning can be off the map entirely.

As an example: When Muslims use the word "Peace" they understand Peace as ONLY thru Islam and outside of Islam there can be no Peace.

Romney's a globalist and as the appointed GOP baby he is very much on board with uniting the faiths on an International Level....of course this is for the revenues they can generate, and because people will not get on board with a One World System without faith matters being involved.

Since the Mormon Organization mingles heavily with Muslims, and Muslims see Mormons as closest to their own beliefs, it has been said Romney would be "the one" to garner peace between the religions

Of course since Mormonism is not mainline Christianity by any means, and by definition a cult counterfeiting Christianity and with an Impostor Christ, it is an easy thing for Romney to desire "Peace" between the faiths...thus giving credit to Mormonism, which mainstream Christianity has refused and rejected as Christian since Mormonssit's inception....and that because it was not, is not now, nor can it be Christian any more than ME faiths can be considered Christian.

Romney's Pipe Piping the Globalist Unity tune and he's hitting every note!

They eat it up because they would not accept the truth, therefore God permits strong delusion to occupy their minds... so that they believe a lie rather than the truth... prefer false apostles and their erroneous doctrines to the pure truths of the Gospel.... being ready to receive any false Messiah, while they systematically and virulently reject the true one.

For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that.... 'they will believe the lie'...2 Thess.2:11 '

I will go out and be a lying spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,'...1 Kings 22:22

They will turn their ears away from the truth and turn aside to myths.....2Tim4:4

People are left to believe impostors.... to trust in false guides... to rely on unfounded information.... to credit those who live to delude and betray the innocent.... and to follow those who lead them to ruin.

Jesus said this would come...and here it has begun from the mouth of a Presidential Candidate of the USA!

We are sooo lost in this country.

forgive, and limit, do not forget or ignore.

We must be sure that Mitt is unable to effect policy in that rea both politically and practically, by limiting the power of his position, and the disposition of his congress.

The presidency and congress must be dramatically weakens. The battle to reclaim our rights only begins after the election.

Our congressmen, Governors, and State legislators must be reminded of that fact. They like all of us will be judged for what THEY do not what Mitt does. Their loyalty must be to our liberty.

Great truth in that simple statement Rita...and that is where this nation is. Fear has torment and the people are so afraid of Obama, (a man), that cannot see whose torch Romney is carrying.

This is one of the most critical primaries we ever faced, and people knew this during the primaries, and yet most are still playing "voter" in a sandbox with outher like minds, completely unaware and or closing their minds to the very real danger in Romney.

All beginning to look like the middle ages, dark times ahead....different clothes, same tunes.

I'm not Catholic. But comparing Catholicism and Mormonism doesn't work. Catholicism is Christian; Mormonism is not.

Noting your words.."going with"..same as agreeing with. Why would any agree with either as both defy all that is Christian.... Romney conceals his because he's spent a lifetime fine-tuning deception in such a way that people believe what they see and hear...even though they know he's a huge liar....and we all know who 'the Father of Lies is'.

Both are equally bad for this country....neither has this country's people at heart, nor are their motives for us.

If Obama wins we muddle through for another four, but have another shot in four years for a true conservative. If Romney wins, the dramatic 'change of course' needed to save this country will not occur for at least the next eight years....if ever.

So, his religion is heresy.

Now, Mormons also have a strong sense of family and community, they successfully practice capitalism, they tithe, they must do community service, they must plan for famine and times of need, and they have great respect for the founding documents of this country.

So, we must decide between a “heretic” with those aforementioned attributes, or a superficial “christian” who believes in black liberation theology, marxism, abortion, who actively disrespects our founding documents, and who is currently curtailing our freedom of religion.

Nobody said this would be easy.

Well it's not so much seeing through Romney as it is knowing the real thing. There are many "bible-educated" adults who do not know Christ...... But for kids our secular educational system has so indoctrinated these kids with a liberal mindset, before they even get into BiBle Colleges, that once there it's about de-programming them from liberalism which if they are without Christ won't hardly scratch the surface.

I watched as the educational system my son had to transfer to to pick up the courses he needed, affect him. At one point he said he felt like he was in a foreign country because of the Instructors so anti-American. You can imagine for him it was rough since he is military.

Still...we are more lost as a country than most dare to see....it's truly frightening when you do!

Can we be saved as the nation we've known? Well the fact Romney has the Primary should reveal to us that answer....the powers that be on both sides of the aisle are all on the same page IMO. And our guys that could stand, or should stand are not doing so.....it's now up to the people to oppose both of these candidates....and there are simply too few of us presently.

The PR SLC lds is very good at what they do, the mormons in congress - left leaning to very left. The public preseption does not jell with the voting patterns.
Our choice appears to be a liberal or a liberal. Or choice appears to be a man who thinks he will be god and one who thinks he already is.
I am not votIng for a man who is a liberal just because he has an R by his name, I have done that before - no more.

But the difference between them and Catholics is Mormons do that among each other primarily..and the goal is for them and their organization not others outside their group. They are similar to Islam in that respect, you are either a Mormon or not....and if not you cannot be included. Which is why Muslims and Mormons get along....they are pretty much on the same page...it's forced upon them to be as you wrote....or they are endanger of loosing their salvation.

Both are fear based because it works. Both are under leadership who keep their members submissive by fear and or punishment of one form or another...and to keep the revenues flowing... I don't see Catholics even close to either of these for the most part.

"Going with" in this case, means exactly what the sentence states. It means voting 'for' not agreeing 'with'.

If Obama wins we muddle through for another four, but have another shot in four years for a true conservative.

Actually I believe we'll be lucky to make past 4 more years of obama. Sounds like you're planning on an obama vote.

Well "for" Romney would also be agreeing with his platform. When we vote for a candidate, we are voting not just for a person, but for that person’s platform.... Ballots do not contain room for voters to indicate why thy have chosen a particular candidate. ..it therefore will always be "for" the candidate and all which he stands for....and that is what the parties will see....you're support "For" them. I'm a conservative...I vote for Conservatives. Romney is not...he is a "counterfeit" Republican. A fraud and we all know this.

BTW Obama is not the primary problem....it's the Gop which will not stand against him or fight.....and if Romney gets in they'll think he's one of their own and sit back while he moves his personal agenda behind the scenes.

I don’t care about your statements on Mormonism, I care that you and your ilk here are defining who is and who is not in fellowship with Christ. Only Christ himself can do that, in the end. See to your own house, and leave the mutual spewing of canned angelpin arguments to religious sites.
