Bigotry among Republicans Poised to guarantee a ZOT for me!
Poll Position ^ | 01-04-12 | Poll Position

Posted on 01/04/2012 9:58:37 PM PST by 47samurai

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.

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.

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 definitely is a weird out factor to more ANY conventional Christian. No doubt about it. Call it “TRUTH” or what you will.

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...

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?

I believe that every position or stand taken by conservatives, or Americans of faith is attacked as bigotry by the left.

You've been here since 1998. You've seen all the bigotted comments about Mormons, their beliefs, their "magic underwear", and the rest. Still you want to say you don't think there is massive anti-mormon bigotry here?

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.

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.

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.”

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.

If Mitt is nominated, expect stories about polygamy by the MSM to go up by about 100 times their usual rate between August and November. No, they won't mention Mitt. They'll just leave the viewer to make the 2 inch jump from the story to Romney. If Mitt is leading in October, then they'll bring out specials on the Mountain Meadows massacre and anything else they can bring up to separate Mormonism from the rest of society.

[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.

So, just who are the bigots?

The real bigots are the peddlers of articles like this. Yet again we are allowing the media, pollsters and pundits to define the issues. When anyone raises Obama's race, Romney's Mormonism, or Kennedy's Catholicism, they reveal themselves as the true bigots. The media, as does each one of us, have an obligation of self-censorship.

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.

I trust what I hear from ex-mormons about this cult, not the members within. Especially since I are one, an ex, that is.

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.
