Now Santorum is finished. And has possibly ruined his chances for the VP position.

"hemophilia" Is that a misprint? Hemophilia is a blood-clotting disease. If the pastor really said that...oh my! He sounds like another kook on the loose.

None but God can say who is Christian and who is not.
I wish that people like Rev. Huey Mills would stop playing God.

Judge not...

Huey Mills just proved he is not a Christian.

Mr. Mills, what thinkest thou of Mr. Santorum's Catholic faith?

He actually said 'Homophilia' but just to be safe and make sure you are a 'REAL' Christian, you should probably hate hemophiliacs AND homophiliacs. I'm pretty sure it says so in Galatians or Deuteronomy or The Acts or something (in Huey's Bible.) At any rate, I'm sure Huey Mills is spot on. His brand of Christianity is a religion all its own and I'm thankful to not be associated with it in any way shape or form.

Of course, Rick Santorum won't have the courage to call this guy for what he is. Santorum, like Perry, like Huckabee, will go silent instead of taking a stand against him. Pathetic.

How strange it all is: it is like the pot calling the kettle black. The Mormons go bananas when others challenge their Christianity and refer to Mormons as a cult; but at the same time Mormons send thousands of missionaries around the world to declare that the Mormon church is the only true church and all the other churches are fales. Which is worse, a cult or a fake.

@skeptic Huh? How about which is worse, an apple or a banana? About as irrelevant as your comparison.

I can't believe a complete bigot like Santorum has been able to get this far.

for the record, Mormon missionaries aren't running around calling other churches a pejorative term such as "cult". They are, however, trying to teach others that, in their opinion, the others' religions are partly true, partly false, whatever. You can believe 'em or not, it doesn't matter. It's a completely different non-attacking mindset, which is why I disagree with your premise.

When I played sport, I was taught to always play the ball and not the man. It sickens me to see people either side of the political fence continue to play the man. Surely there is an intelligent person out there who can attack polices and direction. It isn't November yet and already this is getting tired. This is going to be a long long long year.

As someone who is active LDS, the best way I know how to respond to this is article is with a polite yawn.

@Go Big Blue, Santorum's not the bigot. He doesn't even belong to the same religion as Rev. Mills. Heck, Santorum even endorsed Romney in 2008.

I can't take evangelicals serious. First, how could any supposed evangelical consider voting for Gingrich after he espouses "family values" and spent time railing out President Clinton for his sexual indiscretions while engaged in his own. Cheating on your spouse and then marrying the person you cheated on is something that most evangelicals frown upon. Right?

Now it looks like Huntsman was really the best (R) candidate. He didn't invest in offshore investments, cheat on his wife, have strange views on contraception or say it was okay for Iran to build a nuke. He actually made sense, no wonder that he didn't stand a chance...

Can't help but notice that all this bigotry comes from Ministers and Pastors.

The LDS Church stands for high quality Christlike standards that does not include hate.

Jesus taught about the evils of hatred, but not to hate.

Why do Utah Mormons insist on belonging to a group who hates us so?!

Republican and/or these so-called Christians?

After taking LDS help after Katrina, we're called a non-Christian cult?

Listen, I have heard plenty of members, and seen people hear on these pages write or say things that were not flattering toward other religions. Things like leaders of other faiths are in it just for the money. Most rational people dismiss these comments as being driven by ignorance. Likewise, rational people also view these comments by anti-mormon people as being driven by ignorance.

So what, what some pastor said means nothing. We had the idiot pastor in Florida who got himself national headlines, and yet he represented a church of a handful of people. Or the whack job pastor in Kansas that has his followers picketing the funerals of service men who died in combat. There are enough idiots out there to have headlines everyday.

I wish the DN would stop feeding members paranoia. We have our fair share of nut jobs in our church too.
