    Wright is getting very talkative these days. In a recent interview, he described Obama as being “steeped in Islam,” and said that he (Wright) personally had to introduce him to Christianity and answer the most basic questions. He added that neither of the Obamas subsequently became “church people,” and opined that Obama mainly attended the church for the political connections.

    Its not like we havn’t know about rev wright for years. Fox ran stories on him 24/7. You know who we DON’T know about? romneys pastor. Mormons are such a mysterious people. What do we know about what goes on in there. Or how his religion is influencing his unamerican beliefs? Maybe fox, after whining for years about Obama not being vetted (dispite all evidence to the countrary) should take the time to vet romney.

    Next time you see the boys on bikes in your area, stop them and invite them into your home. They will be happy to discuss the tenets of their faith with you, call a “bishop” for in depth discussion (one of them may BE a bishop) and provide you with a free book of Mormon.

    How much more open about the Mormon religion do you have to be?

    And why are they “mysterious” people to you? Because YOU haven’t taken the step to “get to know” your neighbor. They are not going to try and force you to listen, they respect YOUR right to privacy.

    But isn’t it true that we “fear” what we don’t understand and so it is easy for people to cast aspersion, call them a cult, say they are not “christian” (personally, I don’t know of any religion today that can make THAT claim. But that is just MY opinion.) when they do in fact believe that Jesus was and is the Christ.

    Care to exercise some of that tolerance and open mindedness liberals are so fond of claiming?

    Amen Brother Bruce!
    I am not Morman, but I have a high respect for those who are. All that I have met are good people willing to help others.
    I don’t know who to vote for this time. I’m not in favor of Obama’s socialism, nor Romney’s unbridled capitalism. They’re both not healthy or sustainable. I really don’t see a lesser evil in this one.

    The mormons stoped comming around ever since my neighbor married his boyfriend of 30 years. But that wasn’t what I was talking about. My point about them being “mysterious” is that, dispite what we know about them, they have a rule, that what goes on in their church is to stay in the church. Its like vegas, but most likely FAR more boring. We don’t know what goes on in there, for all we know, it could be JUST like rev. wright. And romney won’t want to use wright because it would invite investigation in to what HIS pastor tells him. And my point about mitt romney stands. We don’t know much about him outside of his days as a corprate vulture. We know less about romney then we do about Obama, and according to fox, Obama still hasn’t been vetted. So where does that leave mitt? Lets start with mitts pastor, What is his name?

    Well now your own words “they protect and preserve hatred, bigotry, misogyny, intolerance, disrespect of others outside their religion.” tells me that you have that area covered all by yourself.

    A fine example you have given of those concepts.

    Well, since Romney’s capitalism has been successful for him and his company, perhaps he can use that expertise to boost the economy. Seems to me that if you want to make money you would hire someone that can do that. But that’s just me I suppose.

    My question? Can we get someone that will work toward ending the wars? Can we get someone that will work to secure our borders and still have a immigration friendly policy? Is there anyone that can insure that whatever aid we give to other countries is used to improve the circumstances of the people in that country rather than lining their own pockets or preparing for armed conflict?

    I care NOTHING about a person’s religion.

    Southern Baptist Convention – lots of weirdness there. Adventists- lots of “strangeness” there that mimics LDS. Jehovahs at the door- lock it and ignore. LDS does have some very nice people, but you do NOT want to raise your kids in a community that is controlled by LDS if you aren’t.Roman Catholics and Anglicans eat the flesh and drink the blood of Christ- kinda’ like vampires and zombies??? Pentecostal “holy rollers” get loud, baby! At the same time, the Society of Friends, DOES tend to believe in treating others as friends, and not killing them because they’re “different”. Certainly not what the attacks on Wright, Obama, OR Romney represent!


    So many hundreds of denominations, all claiming to be the “only real” worshippers of Christ, yep, one religion indeed.


    The truly sad part is that with very, very, rare exceptions, the “church of hypocrisy” is what most, especially “fundamentalists” attend and promote.

    Sounds to me like your minister sold you a bill of goods.

    Overt persecution forced the church to leave New York, and they had to leave Missouri because Governor Boggs signed an executive order requiring the state militia to kill or expel anyone who was Mormon.

    Your bit about race relations is incorrect, evidence that you’re a few decades behind on the topic. In fact, not only is Gladys Knight a member of the church now, she’s made numerous public appearances with the leadership and has recorded a few new gospel albums.

    As far as the temple goes, it’s actually because the critics of the church make it a point to mock, degrade, and even physically defile what we hold dear. If they did it to anyone else it’d be a hate crime, but because they’re doing it to us no one seems to care.

    Mitt was a pastor.

    Mitt romney was always a pastor? There was never a time when he sat in front of a man, influencing his beliefs? The problem is the CONservative media is never going to properly vet romney. Just like they did with john mccain. Remember the controversy over pastor hagee? No you do not. If he had been the pastor to a democrat you would have, but because he was the republican john mccains pastor, it gets swept under the rug.
