  • [LDS elder Harry] Reid: Dem ‘caucus totally supports’ Obama’s fight against Catholic Church

    The Daily Caller ^ | February 7, 2012 | Nicholas Ballasy
    Acknowledging that it is “not good for Democrats” to go “head-to-head” with “any church,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid told The Daily Caller that he and his Democratic caucus “totally” support President Barack Obama forcing religious institutions to cover contraception in employee health insurance plans or pay a federal fine. Catholic bishops across the country are speaking out against this provision of the health care law. TheDC asked Reid if he thinks it is a good idea, politically, for the president to go against the Catholic Church on the issue. “Of course it’s not good for the Democrats to go...

    By HELEN RADKEY Tuesday, February 21, 2012 SALT LAKE CITY - Annelies Marie "Anne" Frank, (June 12, 1929 – March 1945), one of the most renowned Jewish victims of the Holocaust, was posthumously baptized in a Mormon temple, on Saturday, February 18, 2012, under her full name, "Annelies Marie Frank." Mormons have submitted versions of Anne Frank's name at least a dozen times for proxy rites. She has been posthumously baptized in Mormon temples, at least nine times from 1989-1999, and now again in 2012. Anne Frank's latest baptism was performed in the Santo Domingo Dominican Republic (LDS) Temple. Frank...

    Franklin Graham, the son of prominent evangelist Billy Graham, questioned the Christianity of both President Obama and presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Tuesday. Asked in an interview with MSNBC's "Morning Joe" if he believed Mr. Obama was a Christian, Graham said he would "have to assume" he is because "he has said he's a Christian," but then added that he cannot answer the question himself. "You'll have to ask President Obama," Graham said, when asked directly what he believes about Mr. Obama's faith. "You can ask me 'Do I believe you're a Christian?' I think the best thing for a...

    The Rev. Franklin Graham says presidential candidate Mitt Romney is not a Christian. Appearing on MSNBC’s Morning Joe show, Graham was asked whether Romney is a Christian. Graham said he likes Romney, but added, “He’s a Mormon.” When one of the hosts suggested Romney still is part of the “Judeo-Christian faith,” Graham responded: “Most Christians would not recognize Mormons as part of the Christian faith.” “I’m just saying that most Christians would not recognize Mormonism. Of course they believe in Jesus Christ. They believe in a lot of other things, too, that we don't accept theologically.”(continued)

    First Things ^ | February 14, 2012 | Stephen H. Webb
    Mocking Mormonism is one of the last frontiers of verbal lawlessness to be untouched by the vigilante powers of political correctness. What other group is ridiculed equally by Christians and secularists—and not just any kind of Christian or secularist but the most fervent and hard core? Fervent Christians see in Mormonism a mirror distorting their own faith, reflecting an image strangely recognizable yet recognizably strange. Hard-core secularists think Mormonism is the best example of the strangeness and danger inherent in all religious belief. Deriding Mormonism pulls off the neat trick of making the devout and the godless feel as if...

    Religion News Service ^ | February 2, 2012 | Bruce Nolan
    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...

    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...

    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...
