One can't help but to be amsued.Since when do Southern Baptist's consider
Catholics Christians?That's why they're called "Protestants"!Newt is a converted Catholic. Three marriages, two of them to former
mistress', and all is forgiven?His current Wife was in her twenties
and a staffer of Newt's, while Newt was in his fifties with yet another sick
Wife, when they got together?Romney is Ward Cleaver, and yet his LDS
Faith is a disqualifier? Who could have imagined that the South has
ever had problems with Bigotry? They've just found a new boogeyman. The Mormons!
Carry on Deep South, we've all seen this play before.
@ John KateelCan I just share something with you? All polls show Dems 10%
LESS inclined to vote for a Mormon than Republicans.
What makes Rev Brad Atkins an expert on Christianity? Pep rally sermons doesn't
A bigger concern than Romney's Mormonism is that he is almost a repeat of W.
Bush. The GOP needs to dig deeper in their ranks and present a different choice
to the American voters.
@ Ranchhand -- We live in a capitalistic country. Mitt's job was to take
woefully inefficient companies which were bankrupt or headed there, figure out
what they were doing wrong, and make them profitable again. This beats having
the company fold and having all the employees lose their jobs. You're buying
into the anti-capitalist propaganda. I liked It's a Wonderful Life too, but Mitt
is not a Mr. Potter.
And now we hear again from Rev Brad Atkins as he declares and judges 'Mormons'
to be non Christian regrdless if they live a Christian life based on their
belief in and worship of God and the Son of God, Jesus Christ. His entire raison
d'etre, or in other words, reason for being, seems in exculpating those who
indulge in sins as serious as serial adultery or other serial sins, as more
acceptable than those members of the Mormon faith who strive to keep the
commandments of God. The good Rev might peruse the New Testament, applying, if
he will, the Beatitudes/Sermon on the Mount, into his own life before judging
and casting rocks at others.
Then Again "Baptist Christians" in the Palmetto State might want to
consider "not Judging Others", based on lack of facts? Personally as a
Convert to "Mormonism", which is called the Church of Jesus Christ of
Latter-day Saints I have found most Christian Antisentiment comes from rumor
rather than fact! Ignorance is what kept early southern whites suppressing
blacks into slavery, not knowledge of their full capabilities! Ignorance is what
keeps white supremisists hating other races and Jews yet Loving Jesus Christ,
yet Jesus Christ Himself was/is a "JEW", go figure that one out? Yet
Christians I really talk too have so many False misconceptions about Mormons
it's laughable! Then "Mormons" don't want to talk about because of
their own lack of knowledge in their own faith, or they are afraid to help
people UNDERSTAND the TRUTH! Fact, LEARN THE DOCTRINE simply by learning the
ARTICLES OF FAITH! It's that simple, then study them in the scriptures ONE BY
ONE, and you will soon lose fear, and become a great member missionary, it is
that simple! Study, Pray, READ, Learn! There is no better gift members have than
the Holy Ghost, so USE HIM! We Have Nothing To Fear!
Paganism means no Christmas. Amazing how a pagan would support a president
claiming to be Christian. Something doesn't add up here.Hope three
million direct and indirect auto jobs aren't lost.
It hurts. There will be pain. But anyone who has had a growing tumor knows that
you have to cut some of it away before the meds can do their job. If you are one
who wants America to be repaired without doing any cutting then you best prepare
for unpleasantries. But the hope is, that although there will be incisions
made, this will promote a more healthy and targeted growth in other sectors.
It is not as much about layoffs as it is about restructuring for sustained
growth, and future prosperity. I am fine with that, and I became unemployed six
years ago. I just press ahead doing whatever I can until things stabilize. I
am hoping for getting the repairs made and this great country moving forward.
Why do LDS folks so want to be accepted by these evangelical Christian bigots?
Why not stand proud and say, fine...so we are not Christians like
you! So what! God does not just merely love Christians, he loves all his
creations, whether they are Christian, Mormon, Jewish, Hindu, Sikh, Buddhist,
Shinto, animist, pagan, Muslim, or whatever. It is about time the
LDS faithful join the Democratic Party and pay no heed to these conservative
bigots who do not respect your religion. The Democratic Party is an open tent,
we accept all.
Ironically, during the civil rights period of the early 60s, George Romney never
faced this kind of blatent bigotry. I think we are sinking into the Dark Ages
And yet Utahns vote just like the people in the south. Go figure!
Ignorance is still alive and well in the Old South!
I am sorry, but this is just plain stupid in my opinion.How many YEARS
have LDS people had to vote for someone of another faith and we didn't have a
problem with it. Now there is LDS in the mix and others are so bigoted that they
cannot see beyond one word "Mormon"
@Mc;You know, I just can't trust Mitt with the head of the country
either. He's kind of fond of taking businesses and breaking them up, firing the
employees and such to make a buck. I can't bear the thought of what he'd do the
country.As for serial infidelity, you never know.We all
ASSUME that the Mittster is faithful to Ann. Just like we once ASSUMED that
Edwards was faithful, or that Cain was faithful, or that Sanborn was faithful,
... He may very well be, but you never know what is hiding in the cupboard do
you? Until I hear otherwise, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt, but I
won't rule out any possibility and so I won't worry about Newties infidelity
Yes, I guess it's true--you can believe that Jesus of Nazareth, born of Mary at
Bethlehem near Jerusalem, is the Christ, the only begotten Son of God, the
Savior and Redeemer of the world and the only name and means whereby salvation
from sin is possible, and thus be a dedicated disciple and follower of His
teachings--and you can still be considered not a Christian.
Mc--"Evangelicals who open their minds and hearts soon find that mormons
are not the evil beings they thought."Recently I found there
are some who HAVE opened their minds. There is a website sponsored and
written by some,called Evangelicals for Mitt. So very
refreshing!!Because usually the evangelicals I know and listen to
are so opposed to Romney.Newt and his questionable personal life
preferable. Obama and his policies are preferable.Those I know
seriously believe (and are taught) that they are not supposed to investigate
anything about Romney's beliefs or religion, and are opening themselves up to
spiritual peril and danger if they learn and consider for themselves.
Apparently the reverend is wrong about people being more worried about Romney's
mormonism than Newt's infideliy. There is a straw poll at the end of the
original article. When I checked the results so far 88% said Newt's infideity
is a bigger issue.If Evangelicals can dismiss Newt's immorality and
forgive him that's fine. I can forgive him, but I can't trust him with the
future of our country.Evangelicals don't want to trust a mormon with
the future of our country because they don't understand the lDS faith.
They are steeped in anti-mormon teachings that are misinterpretations or
outright lies. Their distrust is so set that they refuse to look at LDS.org for
information about the church because they are sure that church leaders are
hiding their true motives from rank and file members and will say anything to
deceive. Evangelicals who open their minds and hearts soon find
that mormons are not the evil beings they thought. Sadly, leaders like the
reverend in the article are convincing many that evangelicals are more to be
feared than mormons. If a poll asked who is more bigotted, a mormon or an
evangelical, the evangelicals would win.
I listen to people whine about the "Christians" being picked on, cause
non-believers don't want to say Christmas, then those same people turn around
and put down the Mormon's. Wow, that is rich.
serial infidelity? i suspect more women will start to show up on the scene.
just keep voting for the empty suit, obama my paganette friends.
