    When Republican presidential hopeful Mitt Romney released his federal tax returns for the past two years, he disclosed that he and his wife, Ann, gave about 10 percent of their income to their church, a well-known religious practice called tithing. In that way, the Romneys are typical Mormons, members of a church that is exceptionally serious about the Old Testament mandate to give away one-tenth of one's income. But compared to other religious Americans, the Romneys and other Mormons are fairly atypical when it comes to passing the plate. Across the rest of the religious landscape, tithing is often preached...

    Very, very good e-mail lists — and an internal debate over whether to use them. “I'm getting really tired of the ads for Romney campaign trips coming from this list serve,” writes one young Mormon. LAS VEGAS, Nevada -- At Mitt Romney’s first rally here earlier this week, there were plenty of hints that the enthusiastic crowd of 1,000 was stacked with Mormons. Kids walked around in BYU sweatshirts, moms chatted about LDS youth groups, and at least one supporter was overheard talking about making phone calls for the candidate as part of "family home evening" -- a weekly family...

    Park Romney says some pretty wild things. Mormonism, he writes on the Web site parkromney.com, “is an insidious contemporary fraud.” The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is “an American cult,” he professes. Mitt Romney, he claims, would be conflicted in office because “obedience to the leadership of the Mormon Church is part of the covenant of the temple ordinances to which Mitt Romney is absolutely a party.” Were you to come across a man articulating such views on a street corner, you probably would give him a wide berth and look over your shoulder to make sure he...

    ...A religious studies class late last year at Utah State University...was unusual for two reasons. The small group of students, faculty and faithful there to hear Mormon Elder Marlin Jensen were openly troubled about the future...asking hard questions. And Jensen was uncharacteristically frank... Did the leaders...know that members are "leaving in droves?" a woman asked. "We are aware," said Jensen, according to a tape recording of his unscripted remarks. "And I'm speaking of the 15 men that are above me in the hierarchy of the church."... "My own daughter," he then added, "has come to me and said, 'Dad, why...

    In the editorial below, Archbishop Dolan makes an excellent point.  The gov't respects the religious consciences of a number of Christian groups in the US by exempting them from otherwise obligatory laws.  Why is it so difficult for B.O. to respect our 2,000 year old tradition of calling abortion murder and refusing to pay for it?   ObamaCare and Religious Freedom How about some respect for Catholics and others who object to treating pregnancy as a disease?

    The Holy Synod of the Œcumenical Canonical Orthodox Church Worldwide (ŒCOCW) joins the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in opposing the Obama administration’s decision to force all health care providers irrespective of religious beliefs to provide mandatory abortions. Cardinal-designate Timothy Dolan, President of the U.S. Bishops’ Conference described the Obama administration’s position on this matter “literally unconscionable,” and the ŒCOCW shares these sentiments. The Catholic-Orthodox position on abortion and the protection of human life is well known and has remained unchanged; making the Obama administration’s publicized position a deliberate and unequivocal affront to Catholic teaching.The ŒCOCW recognizes the Obama...

    A new Russian nuclear submarine has been named after Saint Aleksandr Nevsky of Russia, and will be fitted with its own Orthodox chapel after the vessel finishes its sea trials. It has become the second nuke-carrying sub equipped with a sanctuary in addition to ballistic missiles. Veneration of Saint Alexander Nevsky as a saint began soon after his death. The remains of the prince were uncovered in response to a vision, before the Battle of Kulikovo in the year 1380, and found to be incorrupt. He was glorified (canonized) by the Russian Orthodox Church in 1547. His principal feast day...

    The Palm Beach Post ^ | January 22nd, 2012 | Andrew Abramson
    Rev. O’Neal Dozier, the conservative pastor of Pompano Beach’s Worldwide Christian Center, told the Palm Beach Post Sunday that Mitt Romney cannot win the presidency because Americans won’t vote for a Mormon president. Following his third place finish in South Carolina, Rick Santorum made his first Florida campaign stop at Dozier’s church, where he gave a faith-based sermon. Dozier has been an outspoken critic of homosexuality and radical Islam. In November, former presidential candidate Herman Cain decided minutes before a speech not to have Dozier deliver his invocation, as was originally planned. “You can look at the June Gallup poll...

    Many GOP voters -- including some well-meaning Freepers -- keep attempting to lecture voters that Mitt Romney's Mormonism "doesn't matter." Well, tell that to three of every five South Carolina primary voters who, according to CNN exit polls, said a candidate's religion mattered either "a great deal" or "somewhat." Click EXIT POLLS: South Carolina for polling data. Only 40 percent of South Carolina GOP voters said that the "Religious Beliefs of Candidates Matter...

    Apart from the newly-crowned national football champions (Go SEC!), there's been another tide of crimson on the horizon in the news: Earlier this week, Pope Benedict announced a consistory in which he will raise 22 prelates to the Sacred College of Cardinals. Among the newly named cardinals are two Americans: Timothy Dolan, the current archbishop of New York and Archbishop Edwin O’Brien, the former archbishop of Baltimore and the current Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. I was gonna post that news and leave it at that. But it occurred to me that for...

    The Washington Post's On Faith ^ | January 11, 2012 | Joanna Brooks
    Every Mormon I know has been watching Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign with close interest because of the kinship we feel with him. And, for his part, Romney has used Mormon social and business networks to enlist bundlers, donors, and volunteers. Those networks may play a role in key campaign states like Nevada. But it would be a mistake to believe that all Mormons plan to vote for Romney this fall. Some Mormon conservatives feel strongly about Ron Paul’s economic message, and a substantial minority of us-about 15 to 20 percent--are Democrats and will vote for Barack Obama this November. However...

    Mormon Research Ministry ^ | Jan 5, 2012 | Sharon Lindbloom
    A crusade (of sorts) is moving across Facebook. It is targeting pages that are critical of Mormonism. Who the crusaders are is unknown, but it seems reasonable to suggest that they may be Latter-day Saints. The crusade is aimed at silencing those who disagree with Mormonism. In a broad sense (and from the perspective of many Mormons), this has some biblical support: “For this is the will of God, that by doing good you should put to silence the ignorance of foolish people.” (1 Peter 2:15) The Facebook crusader’s strategy, however, does not involve “doing good,” nor does it seek...

    Christian Quarterback's Stats Evoke Bible Verse DENVER - Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has accidentally, but perhaps providentially, made John 3:16 the most searched item on Google. Not only did Tebow -- the outspoken son of Christian missionaries -- produce an upset victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers with his touchdown pass in overtime, but that pass left him with 316 yards. He averaged 31.6 yards per toss, and CBS's TV rating peaked at 31.6 during the game. All those 3-16s had flocks of fans searching the Internet, where they found the Bible verse where Jesus says: "For God so loved...
