Mitt Romney: “Not Electable”

Filed under: Election 2008,Mitt Romney,Mormonism,RINOs — Psycheout @ 7:06 am

Spooky MittensJohn Herbert sums it up in one sentence:

Presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is not electable.

You got that right.  But let’s delve a little deeper.

Romney’s challenge is that one out of three Americans gives Mormonism unfavorable marks, that’s worse than any other religion. Only atheism rates lower.

He may as well be an atheist.  Mormonism is a cult, after all.  And atheism is a sign of a sick mind.  We all know these things to be true.

It would seem that, although not entirely Mittens’ fault, Mormonism doesn’t recognize the simple fact that life begins at conception.

Christian fundamentalists, who control much of Florida’s conservative politics, may buy into a pro-life Romney. But they remain queasy, if not about the flip-flopping, putting our nation in the hands of someone they see as a heretic. Mormonism rejects the pro-life stance that life begins at conception.

Now, that’s just crazy!  And there’s more.

If you’ve read Jon Krakauer’s unnerving narrative, “Under the Banner of Heaven,” you could easily believe that murder and polygamy are firmly ingrained in Mormon history.

Now that’s what America needs more of!  And scofflaws galore reside in Mitt’s “church.”  And that’s just great!

A California taxpayer, a Mormon, lost a verdict over his refusal to pay Social Security taxes. His reasoning: “The Social Security system violates the teachings of my church. Mormons take care of their own.”

Wow, now that’s logical, eh, Mr. Spock?  Actually that last bit is positively spooky, so let’s end on a pleasant note:

There are only about 14 million Mormons worldwide.

Only?  That sure sounds like a lot of people who have reservations for a furnished room in hell.  The rooms may be a little warm, but at least there’s Romney TV.  Porn for the whole family!  Enjoy!

  1. There are not enough hotel rooms in all of Utah to host the sins that this man has committed. Not only is he unelectable, he is unsavory and unrepentant. I trust that when our Sam Brownback is elected President of this United States of God, and he will be, that he will organize a committee to investigate the misdeeds of Mr. Romney and ilk.

  4. Forgive me, but as an American, this sorta talk about committees set up to investigate sin really ticks me off, punk.

  5. That’s right, Alex! I’d forgotten about his comments about the snowman, and how he so obviously showed his disdain for the average American voter. Yes, that snowman was a bit silly, but the guy inside the suit is an American citizen and Mitt Romney is not one bit “above” having to answer ANY American citizen’s questions.

  6. Mormonism is a cult, after all. And atheism is a sign of a sick mind.

    Just as christianity is the indicator telling one that the person showing has an IQ below room temperature. Sorry, but if you make petty attacks, I´ll do, too.

    Only? That sure sounds like a lot of people who have reservations for a furnished room in hell.

    If all the people you believe to go down there would actually go to hell, Satan would by now have built a wall and would not let anybody in anymore due to overcrowding.

    Electing Romney is voting for a mandatory abortion for each and every woman in America. All a Romney administration will do is approve more and more drugs to murder little babies.

  8. Romney flip flops so much how could anyone know where he stands on a host of subjects. Came out today that he owns stock in a company that traffics in aborted embryonic stem sells as reported in the Boston Herald.

    But then he is the father of five sons that are doing the same thing as serving in the military by helping with his campaign so what more could we ask out of Mitt?

    Anyone see the blogs now talking about the rigged straw poll in Iowa? Someone said that Mitt was left with over 1,000 ballots they bought with no takers. Why doesn’t the MSM report on that? Is it because they want Mitt to insure a Ms. Clinton victory?

    Cannot believe that Huckabee came in second and still doubt it. Sounds like from reports the powers at be got together to determine where everyone is going to place.

    Except that even the most staunch pro-choice activists are only for an abortion, if the mother chooses it. That´s why it´s called pro-choice. No one wants mandatory abortions, dummy. That´d be a) total illegal and b) a politic position that would definitely cost one the election. And even if it´s against John Cox!

  10. I’m deleting this site from my bookmarks. I will never be visiting here again. I’m tired of bigotry. Tired of the hate.

    I should have done this a few weeks back.

    Good riddance!

  13. Could members of the Church of Jesus Christ (LDS) be more “Christian” than Evangelicals? . . Protestants and Catholics subscribe to the Nicene creed, which was initiated by the Emperor Constantine in the Fourth Century to rid Scriptures of the Apocrypha, some of which made reference to the oral traditions of Jewish and early Christian temple worship.

    First Century Christian churches, in fact, continued the Jewish temple worship traditions:
    1) Baptism of youth (not infants) by immersion by the father of the family
    2) Lay clergy
    3) Anointing with holy oil after baptism
    4) Then clothing in white clothing

    A First Century Christian Church has been re-constructed at the Israeli Museum, and the above can be verified. . And read Exodus Ch 29 for Aaron and his sons” ordinances. . Jewish Temple practices were continued by Christians prior to Constantine”s corruption [see St. Cyril of Jerusalem (315-386 A.D.) Lecture XXI]. . . Early Christians were persecuted for keeping their practices sacred, and not allowing non-Christians to witness them

    A literal reading of the New Testament points to God and Jesus Christ being separate beings, united in purpose. . To whom was Jesus praying in Gethsemane, and Who was speaking to Him and his apostles on the Mount of Transfiguration?

    The Nicene Creed”s definition of the Trinity was influenced by scribes translating the Greek manuscripts into Latin. The scribes embellished on a passage explaining the Trinity, which is the Catholic and Protestant belief that God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The oldest versions of the epistle of 1 John, read: “There are three that bear witness: the Spirit, the water and the blood and these three are one.”
    Scribes later added “the Father, the Word and the Spirit,” and it remained in the epistle when it was translated into English for the King James Version, according to Dr. Bart Ehrman, Chairman of the Religion Department at UNC- Chapel Hill. . . .He no longer believes in the Nicene Trinity.

    Members of the Church of Jesus Christ (LDS) have concern for their ancestors” spiritual welfare, so they practice proxy baptism. (1 Corinthians 15:29 & Malachi 4:5-6).

    Only members of the Church of Jesus Christ (LDS) continue these practices of First Century Christians. But Mormons don”t term Catholics and Protestants “non-Christian”. The dictionary definition of a Christian is “of, pertaining to, believing in, or belonging to a religion based on the teachings of Jesus Christ”:. All of the above denominations are followers of Christ, and consider him the Messiah foretold in the Old Testament.

    It”s important to understand the difference between Reformation and Restoration when we consider who might be the more authentic Christian. If members of the Church of Jesus Christ (LDS) embrace early Christian theology, they are likely more “Christian” than their detractors.

    * * *

    And the National Study of Youth and Religion done by UNC-Chapel Hill in 2005 found that Church of Jesus Christ (LDS) youth (ages 13 to 17) were more likely to exhibit these Christian characteristics than Evangelicals (the next most observant group):
