  • [Canadian conservative advice to GOP] Faith, family and free enterprise [and Latinos]

    National Post ^ | Nov 8, 2012 | Tasha Kheiriddin
    Republicans need to make Hispanics identify with their party based on common values. [...] And there is common ground on the issue of family and several social conservative values. According to the Pew Research Center, while more Hispanic voters describe their values as “liberal” than the general public, they are more socially conservative on abortion and religious observance than the overall population. For even greater self-identification, a high-profile Hispanic candidate on the presidential ticket next time around wouldn’t hurt either. As columnist George Will put it, the real winner in 2012 may be the Republican senator from Florida, Cuban-American Marco...
  • Wagon Train Descendants tell tale of 1857 massacre in Utah

    1857 Massacre.com Truth Outreach ^ | August 8, 2007 | Deborah Gertz Husar
    Wagon Train Descendants tell tale of 1857 massacre in Utah Taping an episode of WTJR's "Truth Outreach" with host Rocky Hulse, the four men forgot about the cameras. They didn't forget their story. A massacre in 1857 in southwest Utah claimed the lives of some of their ancestors. What came to be called the Mountain Meadows Massacre shadows each generation, but Scott Fancher said the public knows little of "one of the single most important historical incidents" in the nation's history. "Apart from the Oklahoma City bombing, this was the single largest act of domestic white-on-white violence in the history...
  • Joseph Smith and Kabbalah: The Occult Connection

    09/09/2012 8:00:06 PM PDT · by NorthernCrunchyCon · 105 replies
    This work was originally published in Dialogue: A Journal of Mormon Thought, Vol. 27, No. 3, Fall 1994, pp. 117-194. The paper received considerable notice, and in 1995 the Mormon History Association recognized Joseph Smith and Kabbalah: The Occult Connection with its annual award for the best article in Mormon studies. [snip] The one thing about which we might all agree concerning Joseph Smith is that he was not the usual sort of person. He did not approach life itself--or his religious commitment--in a usual way. Yet the character of our historical investigation of Joseph Smith and his times has...

    Belief.net ^ | Ellen Leventry interviews Ron Moor
    Glen Larson, creator and producer of the first show, is a member of the Church of Latter-day Saints. He based much of the first series on Mormon cosmology. Was there a concerted effort to move away from that in this version? Not specifically, no. I looked at the original series as mythos and the way it dealt with religion as sort of a global sense. I was aware that Glen had used Mormon influences and how he had created the cosmology, but I'm not that familiar with Mormon belief or practice. To me there were things that were sort of...
  • Romney vs. Obama: Ontario's deja pue (Vanity)

    Free Republic - Vanity | April 12, 2012 | NorthernCrunchyCon
    As noted on another thread, political pundits often compare presidential elections to previous ones. In the case of Romney vs. Obama, conservatives should look north to the Dominion of Celine Dion and Maple Syrup. This is a repeat of John Tory vs. Dalton McGuinty, the 2007 election in Ontario during which the two candidates contested governance of Canada's largest province. The only difference, other than citizenship, is that John Tory was not Mormon. He was a nominal Protestant, for the most part indistinguishable from the Kennedy Catholic he was challenging. Nevertheless, religion would cost him the election. As Ontario Liberal...

    5. It would shore up Romney's popularity with women voters. 4. A Romney/Hillary ticket would increase GOP appeal among moderates and independents in blue states and swing states, as well as minority voters concerned with Romney's Mormonism. 3. A Romney/Hillary ticket would distance the GOP from GW Bush, the Tea Party and the religious right in the minds of voters. 2. Hillary was born into and raised in an Republican establishment family. 1. The most important thing this election is to stop Obama before he can do four more years of damage.
  • Was C.S. Lewis a Crypto-Mormon

    MormonInfo.org ^ | R. M. Sivulka
    Was C. S. Lewis a Crypto-Mormon? If you would like for us to consider adding your comments here, please send an e-mail to Rob@MormonInfo.org. Many LDS writers have been fascinated with C. S. Lewis to the point of making him an "honorary member" of the LDS Church. A recent article stated, "Lewis wrote about the nature of God and how man's ultimate potential is to become like deity, something that seems to resonate with LDS audiences." To LDS, this means that we can become gods like our God is a God for us. In his book, The Mormon Faith: A...

    LDS.org ^ | April 1971 | Kent Nielsen
    Long before our God began his creations, he dwelt on a mortal world like ours, one of the creations that his Father had created for him and his brethren. He, with many of his brethren, was obedient to the principles of the eternal gospel. One among these, it is presumed, was a savior for them, and through him they obtained a resurrection and an exaltation on an eternal, celestial world. 8 Then they gained the power and godhood of their Father and were made heirs of all that he had, continuing his works and creating worlds of their own for...
  • The on-coming Romney onslaught against Christian conservatives [VANITY]

    04/08/2012 8:37:38 PM PDT · by NorthernCrunchyCon · 70 replies
    You watch, Romney's campaign is going to throw allegations of religious bigotry at Christian conservatives like you can't believe. Let me tell you something. The Romney people have some of the best political consultants in the country and they don't get there because they're always wonderful people. The RINO/GOPe are tough. They're very tough. We saw how they undermined Governor Palin during the last election, and the scorched earth policy they carried out against Romney's primary opponents who were conservative or Christian. I've worked with some of them on other campaigns, they're the best there is in the business. And...
  • MSNBC's O'Donnell on Romney's "Mormon Problem": How Moronism Was "Invented"

    MSNBC via YouTube ^ | April 4, 2012 | Lawrence O'Donnell
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_5hww4HNDQ And so begins the MSM turn on the Republican nominee. And as much as I hate to credit the MSM, and particularly O'Donnell, I cannot find anything in his rant that is inaccurate, other than the number of wives Joseph Smith claimed. O'Donnell says 48, but I believe the most consistent number put forward by historians is 27. On the other hand, Brigham Young claimed 56 wives, so O'Donnell is certainly within range.

    Facebook Utah Lighthouse Ministry ^ | Thursday, April 15, 2010 | Helen Radkey
    Mary sealed to Heavenly Father by LDS proxy temple rites The Mormon Baptism of Mary, Mother of God By Helen Radkey Hail Holy Queen Mary (the mother of Jesus) was a Jewish woman of Nazareth in Galilee, identified in the New Testament as the wife of Joseph and the mother of Jesus of Nazareth. Christians believe Mary conceived Jesus miraculously by the agency of the Holy Spirit. For twenty centuries, Christians have cherished Mary and given her titles that reflect their love and admiration—such as the Blessed Virgin Mary, Theotokos (Mother of God), Our Lady, and Queen of Heaven. As...
  • Megadeth's Dave Mustaine endorses Santorum

    Politico ^ | 2/15/12 | CAITLIN MCDEVITT
    Dave Mustaine, leader of the heavy metal band Megadeth, is ready to rock out for Rick Santorum. "Earlier in the election, I was completely oblivious as to who Rick Santorum was, but when the dude went home to be with his daughter when she was sick, that was very commendable,” Mustaine recently told MusicRadar.com. “... You know, I think Santorum has some presidential qualities, and I'm hoping that if it does come down to it, we'll see a Republican in the White House... and that it's Rick Santorum." Weighing in on the rest of the field, Mustaine called Newt Gingrich...
