    BARACK Obama wears David Beckham’s tight-fitting boxers, The Sun can reveal. Becks sent the US president a box of around 50 pairs after learning Obama AND wife Michelle were big fans of his underwear range. The footie ace — who models the pants he designed himself — found out the Obamas were fans after meeting them in Washington earlier this year. A source close to the White House said yesterday: “David promised to send a box of his undies to the President — and Michelle has insisted that her husband wears them!” Becks, 37 — whose briefs are part of...

    “Being a Mormon isn't an easy path.” Heather Beeseck, a sophomore secondary education major at Potomac State College, would know. She has been involved with the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints for two years and was baptized into the faith on August 6, 2011. The Church, according to the National Review, is the fourth largest religious organization in the United States. Its numbers expand at 2.5 percent higher rates than the Roman Catholic Church and may soon pass the United Methodist Church in size. Matt Slick of the Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry published estimates that 800...

    It's looking more and more like the RINO, country club, elitist attacks on Newt Gingrich are having their intended effect and that Mitt Romney will win in Florida and possibly take the Republican nomination. I don't know about you, but I'm up to **here** with the "lesser of two evils" nonsense and I very much doubt that Mitt will choose Sarah Palin or someone like her as his VP. What to do, then? I'm open to any and all suggestions.

    Shawnie Cannon is tired of hearing people spit out misinformation and believe rumors about her religion. "We are not barefoot and pregnant," said Cannon, who was born into an inactive Mormon family and found the religion herself at age 12. Cannon and four other Southern Oregon mothers — Kitti Chandler, Kirsten Savage, Heidi Jarvis and Lisa Anderson — have dubbed themselves the "Mysterious Mormon Moms" and banded together to produce a podcast about their religion. The podcast debuted early last month, and aims to dismiss what Cannon believes are common misconceptions about being a Mormon, a member of The Church...

    Washington Examiner ^ | October 7, 2011 | Byron York
    In the days before the Values Voter Summit in Washington, aides to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney grew concerned about a speaker scheduled to appear shortly after Romney's speech on Saturday morning. Before such events, campaign aides routinely check who will be speaking before and after Romney; it's normal due diligence to know if there are any speakers who might be sources of controversy. [snip] That's when what had begun as an issue of concern over a variety of intolerant remarks turned into a Mormon issue. Seeing Jeffress' words, Bennett decided to include a passage in his speech addressing the...

    With Governor Chris Christie confirming today that he won't seek the presidency, some big-name donors are finally ready to commit themselves to Mitt Romney. "A lot of us who normally would have been in this presidential race a long time ago, have been waiting for Christie to make a decision," said Georgette Mosbacher, a Republican uber-fund-raiser and finance co-chair of the Republican National Committee who was among a group of Republican bundlers hoping to convince Christie to enter the race. "I think tomorrow, we’ll be contacting one another and probably put something together with Romney." [...] At a meeting with...

    FRUIT HEIGHTS — Utah's Chad Hawkins is well known for his paintings of Latter-day Saint temples. But he recently won a major commission to create a scene from Afghanistan. In 2007, Hawkins traveled to Afghanistan to work on a project. "When I got there it was horrible," he said. "To me, it wasn't third-world conditions. It was Stone Age." Chad Hawkins Despite those conditions, little did Hawkins know that visit would eventually turn into one of the most significant works of his career. With that experience, along with his extensive background, Hawkins won the commission from the U.S. Army War...

    As we enter the GOP primary season, I'm starting to notice more and more an annoying trend here in FR. It seems as though everytime there's an article, or someone posts a comment about Romney, either pro or con, it nearly always devolves into an extended, and acrimonious discussion about the Mormon faith. Those who defend it, and those who, for whatever reasons, can't abide it, both sides seem determined to wage an "end of times" batte on all the FR threads. Frankly, I'm tired of it, and just wish it would stop. I think that probably 99% of others...

    At CPAC, Mitt Romney underscored President Obama's shortcomings, describing him as a "weak president." Romney hasn't announced candidacy for the presidency of the U.S. but his CPAC speech last week officially signaled it was open season. Amid largely insincere calls for "civil discourse" in politics, 2012 promises to be just the opposite. The Internet, a double-edged sword often wielded anonymously, carries dark messages which sometimes bubble to the media surface. The same internet that bristles with the "news" that President Obama is a Muslim tells us that Mitt Romney wears "magic underwear." If there were such a thing, I would...

    Watching the videos, including the tours of the ranch, listening to the interviews and news reports it became clear that the women and children are living in a prison inside the gates of the FLDS YFZ Ranch Compound in Eldorado, Texas. It's run like a state prison anywhere in the US. Anyone else notice that? Nobody can leave, they are locked in, they have practically no contact with the outside world, they have work duties, they wear uniforms. The children have a restricted outside play area. There is a code like in a gang of deception. Initially the men told...

It includes a quote from CBS this morning in which Romney, who has invested a lot of time defending George W. Bush, appeared to argue that while voters want change in Washington, they don't necessarily want it in the White House – but in any event, they want change, and he is the candidate of change: "Well, you know, I think the race in Iowa was really a very...

    FOXNews.com compiled a list of 21 questions representing some widely-held beliefs and misconceptions about Mormonism, and posed them to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Church objected to answering some of the questions on the grounds that they misrepresent the basic tenets of the Mormon religion. "Many of these questions are typically found on anti-Mormon blogs or Web sites which aim to misrepresent or distort Mormon doctrines," the Church said in a statement. "Several of these questions do not represent ... any serious attempt to depict the core values and beliefs of its members." Here are the...

    WASHINGTON -- Voters may not know any more about Mormonism than they did before Mitt Romney's faith speech on Thursday, but they surely know more about what it means to be an American. Romney's much-anticipated address from the George H.W. Bush library at Texas A&M reminded Americans of some fundamental truths that often get lost in the guerrilla warfare of presidential politics. He made two important points clear: Freedom and religious liberty are inextricably linked. And, though Romney's religion informs his life, leaders of his church will not inform his decisions as president. That second statement is essentially a reiteration...

    The Baptists, Methodists, Catholics, Lutherans, Pentecostals, Mormons and a few other faiths have three things in common – they believe in Jesus Christ, that He is the Son of God and that He died and was resurrected for our sins. So what’s the problem? The political pundits continue to try and make Mitt Romney’s religious beliefs a big issue as he runs for the Republican presidential nomination. Different denominations of Christianity are just that – different denominations – which means different worship practices of the same fundamental Christian beliefs. Some people have commented that they cannot support Mitt Romney because...

    Coray says a glass wall isn't enough to ensure diners aren't offended. Liquor control commissioner Bobbie Coray asked her colleagues on Wednesday to consider a rule to cover up bottles of booze displayed at restaurants because some diners may be offended at the sight of alcohol. A glass partition between bartenders and customers required under current regulations may not be enough, Coray told her fellow liquor control commissioners at their monthly meeting. Coray, a lone holdout opposing liquor licenses for strip bars, now wants the commission to place more restrictions on glass partitions in restaurants. She called the partitions "a...

    On paper, Mitt Romney seems the most attractive G.O.P. contender. He has business and executive experience, a fine family and no connection to the “Washington mess.” Yet his chance to win the nomination is slipping away. His national poll numbers barely hit double digits, his New Hampshire lead is vanishing, and he’s spending millions of dollars just to keep afloat. As he stood next to Fred Thompson at the Dearborn debate looking puzzled, one was reminded of the Saturday Night Live skit in which the Michael Dukakis character looked at the George H. W. Bush figure and said incredulously, “I...

    SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A conservative think tank is distributing a lengthy essay on the history of education in Utah that implies that if Mormons don't vote in favor of the state's school voucher law that they could face cultural extinction. The Mormon-oriented Sutherland Institute bought advertisements in Utah's two largest newspapers to publish its essay, which says public schools were introduced in Utah by federal officials who wanted to end The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' control of the state. "The object was to provide a broader context, not just for the voucher debate but for...

    WASHINGTON - One in four people in the U.S. said in a recent poll that they would be less likely to support a presidential candidate who is Mormon, an ominous sign for Republican contender Mitt Romney. Yet the survey found two groups, atheists and Muslims, were even less likely to win votes. Sixty-one percent of those questioned said they would be less likely to support a presidential candidate who did not believe in God. Forty-five percent said the same for a Muslim contender. Only 5 percent or fewer said they would be likelier to support candidates who were atheists, Muslims...

    JERUSALEM – Republican presidential candidate Gov. Mitt Romney has cited the social welfare network of the Lebanese Hezbollah terror group as a role model the U.S. should copy to help promote "goodness" and "freedom" around the world. Sections of Hezbollah's social welfare network, including schools and camps, are routinely used by the terror group to indoctrinate students in anti-Israel propaganda, instruct in military tactics and promote Shiite Islamic beliefs, including the waging of a final, apocalyptic world battle against "evil."

    Mitt Romney is a picture perfect Republican candidate for President. Some on the left have suggested that Romney carries extra baggage: He is a member of the LDS (Mormon) Church. Will traditional Christians vote for a Mormon? Traditional Christians believe their faith can inform politics. Other faiths can reach similar conclusions and become allies. Americans are electing the President of the United States not the Patriarch of Antioch, the Bishop of Rome, or the President of the Southern Baptist Convention. Any labeling of Mormons as too “weird” to serve the public sets a risky precedent that will come back to...

    How much of a ''Mormon question'' does former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney face in his presidential campaign? According to recent polls, a quarter of Americans say they wouldn't vote for a Mormon as president. That compares with only 5 percent who say they wouldn't vote for a Catholic or a Jew. Romney's biggest problem is with evangelicals, who constitute nearly half of all Republican primary voters in the South and more than one-third in the Midwest. A Rasmussen poll shows that 53 percent of evangelicals wouldn't vote for a Mormon as president. If that is anything close to right, Romney...
