Cher refuses to back down from anti-Mormon slur

Cher is refusing to back down from a Twitter comment she posted on Friday that is considered a slur against members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The pop singer and passionate Democrat sent out the tweet urging President Barack Obama and his aides to get organized or risk losing November's election to Republican Romney, who is a Mormon.

Cher's tweet said: "I Feel if he (Obama) doesn't get all his DUCKS IN A ROW we'll b forced 2 listen 2Uncaring Richy Rich! The whitest man in MAGIC UNDERWEAR in the WH (White House)."

Some news agencies reported that LDS leaders were upset over the reference to the garment won by faithful adult members of the church to remind them of sacred temple ordinances.

ABC 4 called a representative for the Church who said no LDS leaders ever issued a response to the tweet, nor would they be expected to.

Several people claiming to be Mormons were upset with Cher for making the remark, and responded directly to Cher via Twitter. One person called her an "anti-Mormon bigot."

Referring to the garment as "magic" is considered a derogatory slur by many faithful members of the church.

Cher is not the first prominent figure to catch heat over a tweet about the garments.

In February during a GOP primary debate, New York Times columnist Charles Blow tweeted: "Let me just tell you this Mitt "Muddle Mouth": I'm a single parent and my kids are *amazing*! Stick that in your magic underwear."

Blow later apologized, saying, "Btw, the comment I made about Mormonism during Wed.'s debate was inappropriate, and I regret it. I'm willing to admit that with no caveats."

A Buzzfeed.com article described Mormon garments as "...a rough equivalent of Jews' yarmulkes or tzitzit."

Buzzfeed's article also noted:

"It's difficult to imagine a Times writer making a similar joke about a Jewish politician."

Cher has the mindset of a dirty old man and I wouldn’t be surprised if she is dealing with dementia. Her relentless allegiance to zero is embarrassing.

Cher, a woman who came into the spotlight when she starred in a movie with Olympia Dukakis the same year Michael Dukakis was the presidential nominee.

What ever became of Olympia after her Oscar anyway?

One bad thing about having dementia - is forgetting we have it.

I guess throwing unwashed, streaky underwear at her when she appears in public might be appropriate.

Having dementia really gets me down.

But hey, at least I don't have dementia.

Yea, just who the H is Cher? Another faux Indian squaw, teeny bopper attached to much older man (”Sonny”). She’s a maven of Gay set, who “think” she’s in drag. Maybe she is. Who cares?

Poor Cher.
Her daughter must’ve gotten her self-loathing for being a woman from mommy and jumped to the other team.
How does it feel to be a failure at motherhood AND marriage, Cher?

So what?

There are a few (only a handful, thank God) of Freepers here (more than likely, bitter, "Paul Bots") who ALMOST DAILY (due to their IRRATIONAL hatred of Mormons, though NOT ONE can verbalize their reasons therefore, other than some massacre which happened 155 years ago) demonize, insult, disrespect and otherwise, attack Mormonism.

Of course these same delusional (oh, but "Principled" dontcha know?) Freeps NEVER, EVER, attack the "Religion of Pieces" (or Dear Leader's continued defense or even support thereof as well as having recruited several members of the Muslim Brotherhood) and how it is a REAL threat to our Security and Survival.

BEAM ME UP SCOTTY!!!

Why is everyone jumping on Cher? I’ve heard much worse about Mormons, Mormonism, and Mitt Romney on this very board.

Cher is nothing more than a washed, has-been fag hag.
No one in their right mind will be ‘’jumping on Cher’’, unless it’s the gang of hoodie bro’s grafalo hangs out with.

"Why is everyone jumping on Cher?"

Because she's easy?

With all due respect, Cher came into the spotlight somewhere around 1965 when she teamed up with Sonny Bono. They had a weekly network TV show that was a big deal in pre-cable days. Their then-daughter/now-son was prominently featured in every show. Cher may be an imbecile but her fame has nothing whatsoever to do with Olympia Dukakis.

Did you expect anything different from the queen of plastic magic?
