Trolling a bit admittedly, but it appears that even if Romney secures the nomination, he is destined to lose due to good, old-fashioned religious bigotry.
Well this is a change. At least, I’m not being called a racist.
LDS definitely is a weird out factor to more conventional Christians. No doubt about it. Call it “bigotry” or what you will.
Mittens faith IS NOT what we have an issue with - in fact it is meaningless.
Oh I doubt if Romney’s bigoted anti-Christian religion is going to cause him to lose the GOP nomination or the White House...
Romney’s liberalism is quite enough...
I must disagree. Religious bigotry is not Romney’s problem with the Conservative base of the GOP; Romney’s problem with Conservatives is his liberal history and his stubborn defense of RomneyCare. Being called a “religious bigot” for opposing Romney is like being called a “racist” for opposing Obama.
Mitt’s a big-govt, liberal statist. That’s way worse then any religion right there.
Among Republicans, 48% said they would vote for a Mormon, 29% said they would not, 23% did not offer an opinion.
Democrats were less likely to vote for a Mormon presidential candidate with 46% saying they would not, 28% said they would, 27% had no opinion.
Independents said they would vote for a Mormon by a narrow margin with 39% saying they would vote for a Mormon versus 34% who said they would not. Twenty-seven percent of Independents did not have an opinion on the question.
So, just who are the bigots?
Maybe should do a followup, and ask those same Democrats if they also would not vote for an Evangelical or a strict (not a Kennedy/Pelosi-type) Catholic...or a Muslim.
LDS are NOT Christian in ANY interpretation of their "Gospel".
The Book of Mormon is sitting 6 inches from my fingers as I type. Prove me wrong with their own scripture, if you can...
You beat me ro it..
So I must echo your post.
We have another Romneybot to Zot.
It’s not about Romney’s religion just as my opposition to Obama is not about his race, religion, or preference for arugula and wagyu steaks. The problem with Romney is that he is not conservative, will say anything to get elected, and in general has no core beliefs. In addition, Romney is the guy that lost to the last pitiful Republican candidate. Why would he do any better against Obama this time around? Obama, on the other hand, has firm liberal beliefs. Romney would do nothing to right this country. It would be the same old politics.
That said, the whole field is disappointing.
As I understand it, citizens of the United States may vote (or not vote) for a candidate for any reason or no reason at all. That’s why we have secret ballots. Do you suggest changing that?
(fast fingers...slow mind, lol)
I believe that every position or stand taken by conservatives, or Americans of faith is attacked as bigotry by the left.
No wonder God ends up destroying us. Who wants lukewarm? He can understand Protestant against Catholic. But mormanism being ok? Pack your bags.
I won’t vote for a RINO or a Mormon.
I don’t care what anyone thinks about it, but I had to say it to piss you off.
Guess they call you Snuffies "jarheads" for a reason.
For the vast majority it’s not religious bigotry, it’s just knowing a d*mn*d lying liberal when we see one.
A lot of ‘rats have infiltrated Iowa to try to support Romney; if they are ultimately successful then they will have locked up the election, either a ‘rat or a ‘rat lite.
Well apparently if it comes down to Mittens and Messiah, you’ll be called racist if you vote one way and bigot if you vote the other.
Are you kidding? We don’t want Willard’s Romney Care to follow Obotion O’s Obamacare!
Agree. It’s his liberal agenda that mirrors Zero’s. Just easier for some to swallow.

So you are saying that if a Baptist had a known history of supporting gun control, abortion and socialized healthcare, that conservatives would be ok with him as a candidate???
With the current administration’s state department overtly promoting the homosexual agenda worldwide, I doubt Mormonism or non-Mormonism is a big concern with people worried about national morality. The problem with Mr. Romney isn’t his religion.
IATZ. FWIW, I’ve been called worse by better people.
Bigotry be damned, I don’t vote for liberals, not even ones running for Republican presidential nominee. Romney is a liberal. That is his problem. If Jim Demint or Paul Ryan or Rand Paul were Mormon and running for POTUS, I would vote for them twice.
It is not about religious affiliation. It is about conservatism, which Romney lacks.
But you can be damn sure that Obama is licking his chops at running against Romney. The Democrats are ace race-baiters and they can’t wait to at leasts make an attempt to drive a wedge between whatever is left of the Christian Coalition and a Romney candidacy.
I don’t think conservatives are so bigotted as to vote against a conservative Mormon for president, but I am sure the socialist Democrats fully believe that. They project their racism and bigotry on everybody else. You know “if we the Democrats are this racist and bigoted, then surely the conservatives must be double so.”
blah blah blah.
I don't like Romney and I'm a Catholic, but it can't be denied there is religious bigotry against Mormons, including Romney, and some has been displayed right here on FR. Bigotry is not required, however, to be against Romney.
Punks are coming out from everywhere.
I figured out what’s going on with all the MittTards!
The short bus broke down and all the passengers are getting off here on FR!
I think not....
[he is destined to lose due to good, old-fashioned religious bigotry. ]
As a free American I have a right to use religion as part of my selection process for candidates. I will not, for example, vote for a satan worshiper, a scientologist, a Rastafarian, Muslim, Wiccan and yes a Mormon for president. They can certainly run for president, I just will never vote for them because I will not validate their religious beliefs.
On the other hand, Mormons have every right to vote for Mitt based on their religious preference. I guess bigotry only works one way??
So all you high and mighty sorts throwing around the term bigot are yourselves some of the most intolerant and bigoted people around. Yes, bigoted against the exercise of rational choice in a free society. The bigot police can go to hell.
I don’t care about the Mormonism. I really don’t.
I have trouble with it as a religion, and it sure ain’t Christian, but that wouldn’t stop me voting for Mitt, if he had the right principles.
Mitt wouldn’t know a principle if it bit him in the butt.
Nope! It's because he is a "Moderate" just like John McLain - who just recently "endorsed" him - big surprise there. Romney is NOT a real Conservative and cannot beat Obama because of it. That he believes he will one day be a god inhabiting his own planet and solar system with multiple "wives" begetting "spiritual" children to people his planet doesn't help his cause, but it won't be why he will lose.
Any mormon I see on any ballot for any office will get my immediate vote for the opponent. I wear enough scars and paid enough pain to purchase that right.
Whatever you need to make yourself feel better. The reality is Romney will lose because he is not the man for the job.
He is not a conservative.. We are done with RINO’s and Dem- Lites
