Glad to see one of the non-Mormon candidates standing up for Mormons. I just
wish the non-Mormon GOP candidates would too, instead of dodging the issue.
For once I agree with something Biden says!
It astounds me how the GOP rips us Mormons, yet the "liberal"
Democrats and "liberal" media all call it a non-issue.Why
Utah Mormons keep trying to "fit in" with the rest of the GOP is
Take note conservatives, that is what the separation of church and state is for.
Being Mormon is a non issue. Now why did the republicans spend so
much time and money repassing the country's motto this week of " In God we
trust"? The founding fathers didn't make that motto. It was done in
1956.You know what elese was done in 1956? The SR-71 blackbird - the
fastest manned aircraft ever. The pentagon can't answer for 2 trillion dollars.
They better have made a interglatic space ship by now with that much money.
Mormons keep looking for admission to the tiny GOP tent and can't even find the
door, although the "donations" window is easy enough to locate. It's
true Democrats don't always agree, but the door is open to anyone, even the 1
Your nuts if you believe anything the Obama administration says. Dog bites once
shame on the dog, dod bites twice shame on you. Example, open debate on health
care legislation. Last time I checked open wasn't done behind closed doors.
These people cannot be trusted.
Its a non-issue with him now. But if Romney actually becomes the nominee against
Obama, it will sure become a raging issue then then.
It's funny that people are suggesting that devout Mormons would easily be
accepted in the liberal tent, while being reject from the conservative tent.
The one thing everyone knows about the liberal tent is that it isn't liberal.
The farther left one goes on the political spectrum, the closer one gets to
intolerance under the guise of tolerance. The reality is is this:
devout Mormons will have challenges in fitting in either tent, for different
reasons. No tent is perfect.
@Mayfair and IsthisforrealCome on, seriously? Are you so partisan as
to think that the Obama campaign would attack Romney for religion? Even when
Biden claimed that it being an issue is disgusting?Even if you think
Obama would be willing do something like that Obama's team still wouldn't. You
know why? Because Obama gets all sort of religious based nonsense thrown his
way. Obama and Romney would likely have an informal truce on the matter. You
know... "you don't say anything about mormonism and I won't say anything
about Rev. Wright".
Biden has always been a religious role model---believes in marriage and family
and prayer as much as anyone (and helping the poor). Romney will get a lot of
heat from the left---but it won't come from Messrs. Obama and Biden.
I still think that Biden isn't the brightest bulb on the tree, but I have to
admit that he gained a little respect.
@ LDS LiberalOkay so some religions don't think Mormons are
Christians. Here are several reasons that most Mormons cannot support
Democrats:1. D&C 42:42 The Idler shall not eat the bread nor
wear the garments of the laborer.2. Abortion.3. Capitol Punishment
(Alma 34:11-12)4. The church has counseled us for generations to be self
reliant. The left builds dependency.5. Some Republicans ( very small
minority) may not like Mormons. I get the impression that Liberals just hate
religious people in general. It is very funny to listen to them (try to) quote
scripture. They call John 3:16 John 16:3. Too funny. They are fooling nobody.6. The church has advised us to stay out of dept. I thought that the
Republicans spent too much money until I saw Obama. My oh my.7. There are
sins of omission and sins of commission. God punishes those who commit sin and
with holds the blessings for sins of commission. No so with libs. They ignore
sins of commission (OWS for example) and force us to donate to government
charities. That is not Gods plan.Besides liberal policies simply do
@The Rock,And then there is number 8. Democrats believe in science:
archeology, the study of ancient languages, DNA, etc.
@ ThinksIThink "And then there is number 8. Democrats believe
in science: archeology, the study of ancient languages, DNA, etc. "Just because Republicans have doubts about junk science with an obvious
political agenda is no reason to ridicule them. It is not uncommon for two well
educated people to view the same evidence and come to completely different
conclusions.I think for myself. I don't let Al Gore do my thinking
for me when it comes to Global Warming.
