Despite major gains in pop and political culture, many Evangelicals remain wary of Mormons. Just ask Latter Day Saints (LDS) church member Mitt Romney who is currently struggling to claim front-runner status as the Republican nominee. Political pundits believe the lack of Evangelical support is crippling his campaign.

Right. I learned about that last week. I was shocked but it sure explains Mitt being known as a liar. It's like air to him, it just is - he needs it to survive.
He takes death oaths to "avenge the blood of Joseph Smith" and to "consecrate all his time talents and possessions" to cult leadership in Salt Lake City.
You really think it's wise to allow a SECOND THIRD of government to be controlled by CULT MEMBERS sworn to allegiance with something other than the Constitution ?
Matthew 6:24, Jesus Christ
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
You pretty much hit the nail on the head.

My personal favorite is trying to co-opt the Inca’s culture as the “Nephites”...
While there is no doubt that some Evangelical Christians might oppose Romney soley because of his Mormon faith, I think the biggest cause of the lack of support for Romney among Evagelical Christians is the belief or conviction that Romney does not share the most core political concerns of Evangelical Christians.
RomneyCare-Obamacare was not just a political swipe at “right-to-life” Christians, it was a direct swipe at core beliefs about the limits of goverment power Conservatives of all stripes, Evagelicals as well, believe are foundational in our Constitution, in spite of the great abuse those foundations have received in our lifetimes from an errant judiciary.
Romney, outside of his crony-capitalist concerns, is a big-government Republican who will not repudiate the federal government’s intrusions on our Liberty but will only tinker at “improving” their application.
Evangelicals do not see Romney as one of them, in the political sense. That is not a limitation imposed by his Mormon faith. It is a limitation imposed by the political positions has taken, the ones he champions, the ones he gives mere lip service to and the ones he has ignored.
Romney being a Mormon has nothing to do with it as far as i am concerned, i know a lot of Mormons who hold freedom as dearly as any one else, i am just seeing too much Obama in his state health care system, Socialism.
So does this Catholic
So does anybody who believes in the living God (singular).
There are probably tons of anthropological evidence for this, right? (D.N.A. and such)
Didn't the mormon's pretend Jesus kill some of those Indian Jews?
Just came across this info regarding the book by Tricia Erickson CAN MITT ROMNEY SERVE TWO MASTERS? From what I read, it reveals the truth about the Bishop Mitt Romney and politics will be intertwined w/his cult religion.
Full Disclosure: I do not support Mr. Romney and hope he will not be the GOP candidate.
That said: to believe everything that Ms Erickson says, everything she “warns about”, we would have to believe that she (or anyone else) knows for certain that Mr Romney is as personally committed to those beliefs that she warns people about, (& LDS positions) as she THINKS Mr. Romney is - though who can be certain.
It’s somewhat like this nation’s protestants’ fears that Jack Kennedy would do what the Pope in Rome wanted him to do, more than his own consience, and his own understanding of the limitations of his position and authority, convinced him he could.
Personally, I do not need to oppose Romney for his religion, he has enough strikes against him in my opinion without that concern.
Romney did say in the debate after S Carolina that he would consult with his “prophets” on critical decisions.
“There once was a tribe called the Incas,
“Who got to be known as big drincas.
“They worshipped the sun,
“And had lots of fun.
“But the peasants all thought they were stincas!”
Anyway, any mention of “Jewish Indians” just leaves me laughing helplessly. The DNA evidence is clear that North & South American Indians are descended from Central Asia, and I just can’t get out of my mind Mel Brooks as the Apache chief in Blazing Saddles.
Then there are Mormons who believe that modern Navajos who convert to LDS have children who are more and more “white and delightsome” just like the “Nephites”.
And when it comes to the Word of Wisdom, “a man has to believe in something; believe I’ll have another drink”.
mormons are free to believe whatever they want, whether it be multiple gods or becoming gods of their own planes, or their founder being greater than The Biblical Jesus. I do not care.
I care that they claim to be Christians, when they teach that Jesus Christ is insufficient and they need Joseph Smith,
I do care that the Cross means little to them,
I do care that they teach that Mary had sex with God,
I do care that they each they will become god.
I guess I do care because what they beleive is blasphemy, plain and simple.
They can believe what they want, and I I can still care about the blasphemy against God Almighty.
(at Romney’s core he believes he will be god of his own planet)
I was saved by Christ from the cult AFTER being prepared here on FR during the 2008 election cycle.
Romney will go after first amendment activity on the internet and broadcast, juts like Reid is trying to right now with SOPA and the "Fairness Doctrine"....Just like Salt Lake told him to. The breakaway LDS sect of mormonism is hemorraging members right now because their secrets are getting back to the deceived members.
WOW! PRAISE GOD!
I have taken the death oaths personally.
The breakaway LDS sect of mormonism is hemorraging members right now because their secrets are getting back to the deceived members.
And to the not deceived. Just learned lying to any non mormon is standard practice! Mitt and Reid are pawns of satan who is the father of lies. There was a thread here how Mitt's cousin, a former mormom, warned about the result of mitt being president.
I've said before I knew all of this - the only ones who would support mitt as those who are attracted to evil. He reeks of evil.
His self proclaimed 'R' is a lie, also! His 'accomplishments' are parallel with socialism and he's void of any patriotism.
