Since my objective post about Mittens & Mormonism was so well received, it must be nearly time for another. B4B only reports on what the candidates say or what the media says about them. It’s not our fault if people get angry when we talk about religions (including those with magical underpants).
FoxNews recently posted an article, entitled Mitt Romney: I’m ‘Not Running To Talk About Mormonism’ that should get all sorts of Romney supporting underpants, magical or otherwise, in a twist. (I love it when B4B stays ahead of the curve.)
But first, let’s take time out for a Flipper break.
Romney, a Republican and former official in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, has said he supported abortion rights when he first became governor, but as he learned more about the practice, and embryonic stem cell research, he ended up opposing it.
Like another Massachusetts guy, he was for it before he was against it. And not talking about Mormonism, eh?
Mormon law is critical of abortion procedures as well as those who support it. Romney pointed out in the interview that the religion does not excommunicate those who openly support abortion rights.
It’s bad, but it’s okay. And don’t you dare talk about my religion, you bullies, meanies, bigots!
Growing visibly agitated at times both on-air and then off — as seen on a video clip of the interview — the former governor told Mickelson his faith is not the issue, his potential leadership as president is.
And you can see the video here:
Anyway, heeeeeeere’s Flipper!
“I’m not going to have a conversation about what my church views are because … that’s not the nature of the office I’m running for. And there are people in my church who are pro-choice.”
…including Mittens himself. But he’s so cute and so electable! He’s just like Reagan! NOT.
FoxNews sent me a memo saying that they report, you decide. So you’ll have to follow the link to make your decision. Think Brownback, forget Romney.
NOTE: This is Blogs 4 Brownback, and not Blogs of Brownback. So fire away at us, but vote for Sam Brownback.
