In todays society, it is not politically correct to defame, malign, discredit, denigrate, or hate any group….whether they be Jews, Muslims, Gays, Lesbians, Blacks, or the Australian Aborigines…….except Mormons. It is OK in our society to call Mormons liars, to discredit their leaders, to hold anti-Mormon rallies at General Conference in Salt Lake City and at Temple dedications.
Ask yourself why………..
But even Jesus Christ Himself was spit upon, called names, ridiculed, and finally crucified by others who thought that they knew better than He. We see the same type of people around us today that existed in the days of Christ. That much has not changed.
Now to the article………..
How Republicans ended up with Shamnesty McCain
More on religion in politics from The American Spectator.
Mike Huckabee stoked the fires of paranoia in a New York Times Magazine story when he asked, “Don’t Mormons believe that Jesus and the devil are brothers?” One-time presidential candidate the Reverend Al Sharpton spoke for many true believers when he said, “As for the one Mormon running for office, those who really believe in God will defeat him anyway.”
Bill Keller, host of the Florida-based Live Prayer TV warned his reported 2.4 million e-mail subscribers that a vote for Romney would mean a vote for — you guess it — Beelzebub. “The presidency is the most powerful position in the world,” Keller told American Spectator contributor Carrie Sheffield. “If Romney was elected president, it would give mainstream credibility and acceptance to the Mormon cult and lead millions of people into that cult.”
Slate magazine contributor Christopher Hitchens demanded that Romney answer for the racist past of his faith. “His church was officially racist until 1965, believing that black people were an inferior species,” Hitchens fumed, while Slate editor Jacob Weisberg said that the religion’s founder Joseph Smith was an obvious con man, and that “Romney has every right to believe in con men, but I want to know if he does, and if so, I don’t want him running the country.”
Republicans now have two liberal Baptists to choose from, neither one with a small government bone in his body. Is it possible that evangelical Republicans were so anti-Mormon that they cut a deal with the devil?
What does it say about the principles of the faith-based of this nation when The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints holds the unenviable distinction of being the last acceptable group to defame with impunity?
