Two Term Kenyan; No More Mittens

No Moar Mittens

Hit the road, Jack

Given the choice between the Islamofascist Muslim birth certificate forger-in-chief from Kenya, Barrack Hussein Osama bin Muslim and the Moroni worshiping magical underpants fetishist, flip-flopping plutocrat and grinning imbecile Mittens ‘Bane’ Romney, real Americans were left with little choice but to pray for the baby Jesus to fast track the Rapture and purify our shining city on the hill in the cleansing fire of Armageddon.

As it turns out our Lord hath a sardonic sense of humor and, all in all, America got off rather easy this time.  The election of 2012 would have turned out rather differently had God’s Own Party had anointed His chosen candidate, future President and True Christian Sam Brownback instead of empty suit and false Mormon prophet, Mitt the Deceiver.  But it could have been so much worse.

If, like the three little kittens we will have seen the last of our Mittens, providing four more years of entitlements, rent, food stamps, crack, bling and a warm crib for our New Black Panther pResident Barry O  to kick it old school aight, doesn’t seem so bad.

At least it keeps him off the streets and out of the slammer for now.   Four years is a long time in politics.  There’s plenty of time to begin impeachment proceedings before B. Hussein’s term is up.

Ha ha, defeatocrats!

Austerity, Anyone?

Karl Rove, Ralph Reed, Charles and David Koch, Ted Olson, Dick Cheney, Jeb Bush and other patriots know that the work doesn’t end on election day, it’s only just begun.

Enjoy your hollow victory Defeatocrats, Socialists, Anarchists, Slackers, Eurocrats, Trade Unionists and the rest of you Obot parasites.  Austerity is just around the corner, can you feel the chill in the air?  As you ride your magical unity pony over the fiscal cliff and “yes I can” becomes “aiiiiieeeeee!!!!” Red State Republicans will be laughing all the way to the bank.

Goodbye, Mittens, you lie-beral loser and good riddance.

Please don’t come back now y’hear?

Jeff Foli Update

Jeff FoliA few months ago, former mayor of Chillicothe, Missouri, Jeff Foli submitted a guest post, Political Power in the Pulpit, about his concerns regarding then candidate Mitt Romney based on his own experience with Mormon Church leaders while mayor.  I suggest you go back and read it.  It’s quite thought-provoking.

Since that time, Jeff has provided an update on his own situation, and I have decided to go ahead and put it here on the front page for the benefit of our readers.  Once again, here is Jeff Foli:

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

FORMER CITY MAYOR TO BE EXCOMMUNICATED FROM MORMON CHURCH FOR NOT FOLLOWING ORDERS IN POLITICAL MATTERS?

Probably because of the Romney controversy, on February 4, 2008, Thomas S. Monson said to Peggy Stack, reporter for the Salt Lake Tribune, that the church does not get involved in political matters. If this is true, then why, when I was Mayor of Chillicothe Missouri, was I was threatened with excommunication if I did not rescind a piece of Legislation that I sent to the Missouri State Legislature?

It is supposedly against Federal Law (Title 26, Section 501) for a church to influence legislation, but in 2003, the late Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley and his councilors thought it appropriate and acceptable to threaten my membership in the church when I was Mayor of Chillicothe in Northwest Missouri, regarding a political matter.

On Feb. 17, 2007, the Church will hold a disciplinary Council (church court) on me because I let the public know of these acts via the Internet, and I finally filed charges with the local Sheriff, the ACLU, the IRS, and others because of the continual manipulation and abuse of Mormon leaders. I tried for several years to quietly and internally settle these issues, but they would have none of it.

They view my exposure and revealing of their actions as my attempt to disparage and criticize leaders (evil speaking of the Lord’s anointed). They state, “those who reject Christ’s servants, reject him”. Why does leadership demand no accountability in Churches for inappropriate actions of leaders?

Do we think Brigham Young would have personally sought out those accountable for the senseless murder of 120 men, women, and children on SEPTEMBER 11, 1857, without pressure from the Federal Government? Who will protect us? Where are the checks and balances for questioning potential religious abuses?

Most of the Mormon people are good, honest individuals, but the people of Missouri will not put up with this type of stronghanded influence. So as the Mormon Migration to Missouri continues, I hope the Mormon people will open their minds and become more careful and considerate of the people they meet.

Most have no idea of what really happened in Missouri over 170 years ago, because the whole story was never fully told.

Sincerely,
Jeff Foli
Former Mayor of Chillicothe, Missouri

Florida Primary Open Thread [Updates]

FloridaIt’s nearly the Florida primary, so it’s time make those predictions once again. Unless Satan intervenes the results should be as follows:

  1. McCain
  2. Romney
  3. Huckabee

There have been several unconfirmed reports of animal sacrifice and blood rites being performed in the panhandle state. Sources tell me that Mitt Romney signs were found nearby a number of these sites where clandestine pagan ceremonies were held in the dark of night. So evidence suggests there are a lot of appeals to Satan to throw this race to Mittens. We shall see.

Interestingly, G-d has already retaliated by smiting the false prophet of the Mormon Church, one Gordon B. Hinckley, who Mormons believe is, or rather was, a living prophet of G-d here on earth. I have read that the chameleonic candidate plans to attend the mysterious funeral, since the Mormon Church is more important to him than even America. Mitt reveals where his loyalties truly lie by making a false idol of this now dead “prophet.”

Also the transvestite and gay voters may have been underpolled, so Giuliani just might pull a third place showing. The moonbat and tin foil hat vote has been over polled in the past. So I suspect that Ron Paul will be dead last. That would be a good thing.

Oh yeah, I nearly forgot about the detestable Demoncrats.

  1. Hilldog
  2. Osama
  3. Silky Pony

Predictions anyone?

Update: With less than 1% reporting (7:25pm EST):

  1. McCain 29%
  2. Romney 28%
  3. Giuliani 18%
  4. Huckabee 18%
  1. Hilldog 58%
  2. Osama 21%
  3. Breck Girl 17%

Update 19: Florida primary results:

With 62% reporting (9:27pm EST) (all polls have closed):

  1. McCain 36% [x]
  2. Romney 32%
  3. Giuliani 15%
  4. Huckabee 13%

With 62% reporting:

  1. Hilldog 51% [x]
  2. Osama 32%
  3. Breck Girl 15%

Update 20 (Final Update): Florida primary results:

With 69% reporting (9:41pm EST) (all polls have closed):

With 69% reporting:

  1. Hilldog 50% [x]
  2. Osama 32%

Barring any surprises, Florida has done the right thing by rejecting the Mittens. Thank you, Florida.

Mitt Romney: Anchor Baby?

ProhibidoI like irony. Tom Tancredo’s endorsement of Mitt Romney took many by surprise. But the surprise became astonishment when it was revealed that Mitt Romney’s father came to America across the Mexican border. For some reason The Tanc didn’t seem to mind. Hypocritical? You be the judge.

Tom Tancredo, the only candidate for president from either party to declare himself in opposition to legal immigration, and to have a specific aversion to Mexican immigration, dropped out of the presidential race last week. Then he did something quite odd – he endorsed Mitt Romney, the only candidate whose father was born in Mexico and whose family made use of the porous border to immigrate between Mexico and the United States.

PolygamyOuch. Most people probably don’t even know about this. And why was the Romney family kicking it in Mexico? Polygamy. Nice.

Mitt Romney’s father George was born in Chihuahua, Mexico in 1907, the son of Gaskell Romney and Anna Amelia Pratt. Three generations of Romneys lived in Mexico because Miles Park Romney, a polygamist, moved the family there in 1884 as it became increasingly clear that the U.S. government would not tolerate polygamy in the Utah Territory. The 1882 Edmunds Act stripped polygamists of the basic rights of U.S. citizenship, denying them the right to vote, serve on juries or hold office. Not dissimilar to current immigration raids, U.S. federal agents hunted and arrested polygamists. Polygamists were forced to leave the country or risk jail.

Mexican Border CrossingLawbreakers. It turns out that polygamy was not legal in Mexico either, so “Miles Romney then knowingly arrived in direct violation of Mexican immigration law.”

Aren’t these the kind of people Tancredo dislikes with intensity?

Relative Junius Romney negotiated with rebel leaders to get women and children out of the colony for their safety. Anna, with Mitt’s father George in tow, fled across the U.S. border by train (with no apparent delay or search at the border). A short time later Gaskell, like many Mexican immigrants before and since, covered hundreds of miles under a hot sun, crossing by land into New Mexico.

Hypocrisy knows no bounds. The more one finds out about Mitt Romney, the less there is to like.

Update: I should have noted that the source, Think Progress, is a left slanted smear site, and although it may be accurate on occasion, it’s best to be cautious taking articles there at their word.  A grain of salt is always good to include in the mix.  That’s precisely why I said “You be the judge.”  Commenter TLB pointed out this comment over at an alternet reprint of the original article:

Per this: It is the consensus of scholars, however, that foreign born children of Americans are natural born citizens. And that would mean that [George Romney] and McCain would certainly qualify.

Thus, calling George Romney an “immigrant” is false. And, for that reason and others, most of the post has nothing to do with Mitt Romney. He’s the one who’s running for president, not his late father.

B4B always strives for accuracy, and will continue to do so.  Constructive criticism is always welcome.

Mittens Set To Chat Up Mormonism

Filed under: Campaign 2008,Mitt Romney,Mormonism,RINOs — Psycheout @ 9:26 am
Tags: , ,

Mitt Romney, MuppetizedOn Thursday, Mitt Romney, the slick chameleon, will attempt to more channel JFK than Reagan by trying to calm concerned folk about his Mormon faith.  He will attempt to sound like Jesus while parroting Joseph Smith.  And, for anyone other than his cheering fan section, the speech will fail to propel him towards the once thought inevitable nomination.

There is only one reason that this speech is being made now.  Well two, really.  Mike Huckabee and Iowa.  Will Mitt Romney be able to convince Iowan evangelicals that Mormonism is Christian and that it’s not a cult?  Sadly, no.  Wait, what am I saying?  Happily, no!  Go-o-o-o, Mittster!  “The speech,” as it’s being called, may well spell the beginning of the end for the Romney campaign.  Good.

Political Power in the Pulpit

B4B is honored to present this guest post written by Jeffery Curtis Foli, the former mayor of Chillicothe, Missouri.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Mitt RomneyHow far should religious leaders be able to go before they cross the line and breach the legal separation between Church and State, and who will hold them accountable? Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, Gordon B. Hinckley, Oral Roberts, and some Catholic leaders are just a few who have challenged these issues.

I hope it is not the case, but if my story is any indication, Mormon religious leaders will take Mitt Romney aside as needed and help him remember just where his ultimate loyalties lie. I, as well as Mitt Romney, have made sacred agreements to support the interests of God’s future kingdom, as we see it within the Mormon perspective. But are individual religious interests and National interest always necessarily the same? In the case of a President Mitt Romney, is what is good for the Mormon people, equally good for all the citizens of the USA, and will the leaders press him?

I don’t know if Mitt ever had this issue before him in the past while serving as Governor of Massachusetts, but this possibility was twice made clear to me while I was serving as Mayor/CEO of the City of Chillicothe, Missouri. During one incident, I was taken into church offices and verbally threatened, by President and Prophet Gordon B. Hinckley via Stake President, and attorney, Detlif Lehnardt in a private meeting, with excommunication if I did not rescind my recently proposed legislation. I believe Federal Law (Tax Code Title 26 section 501) states that a Church cannot engage in such activity.

In another incident, Mormon leaders confronted me and told me to support the Mormon party line on a specific issue instead of what I knew was legal, honest, and in the best interest of those in my City. Since my oath of office was to represent the citizens of my City, and not the interests of the Mormon Church, I pressed each issue as far as I could in an appropriate way. I believe we can serve in both capacities in an open, honest, and honorable way, if the leaders will just keep their noses out of places they don’t belong.

Charges and complaints have recently been filed with the Sheriff of Livingston County Missouri, the ACLU, and the IRS. At each and every turn, these charges have been stonewalled, with no one wanting to challenge the accountability. The Mormon Church is enormously popular as well as powerful.

Just to reiterate, I ask, will Mitt Romney be his own man if elected, or would he be controlled by Religious Leaders? The multi-million man re-migration of Mormons to Missouri could be triggered in a small way just by the election of Romney. These issues are not at all isolated to the Mormons, I am sure.

Richard Land Gets It Right

Richard LandThe GOP had better not take evangelicals for granted. Many of us will throw the Republican party overboard if they dare to demand that we vote for Rudy Giuliani. Don’t believe me? Well, Richard Land, president of The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), a very influential voice of religious conservatives, makes it absolutely clear. And I applaud him for speaking out. Hot Air provides some key snippets from an interview with Newsweek. The entire interview is worthy of a read, so be sure to check it out.

NEWSWEEK: So we wanted to ask you, first of all, about the third party idea and whether it’s serious. A number of people are suggesting it is just a threat.

Land: My intuition [is that] this is not a bluff. If Giuliani is the nominee, there will be a third party. There are things that Giuliani could do to help mitigate the damage. But I have been in too many discussions over the last 15 years where evangelical leaders have said, “The one thing we will never allow to happen is for the Republican Party to take us for granted the way the Democrat Party too often takes the African-American community for granted.”
This is not a bluff…

NEWSWEEK: When Rudy says “I will appoint strict constructionist judges,” you are not hearing that?

Land: I hear it. I hear it.

NEWSWEEK: Well, you don’t hear Hillary saying that.

Land [turns to question a Newsweek reporter]: Could you vote for a Klansman?

[Reporter responds] No.

Land: You’ve answered my question. I cannot vote for someone who believes that it’s all right to stop a beating heart.

That’s absolutely right. The pro-life issue is simply non-negotiable. Hasn’t the Republican party learned this lesson yet? Will the GOP throw the 2008 Presidential election and all that social conservatives have worked for during the last several decades? They will do so at their peril. As Land says, “this is not a bluff.”  And evangelicals and socons cannot be blamed if this happens.  It’s up to the party to make the right choice.  We will not obediently submit if an intolerable candidate is selected.

Land also had some interesting things to say about Mitt Romney. If Mittens were nominated, it would not necessarily be a deal-breaker; it wouldn’t necessarily result in Richard Land and other evangelicals voting third party, but there are a number of concerns that potential voters would have. Mitt hasn’t done much, if anything, to qualm their fears.

What are the three or four things that he absolutely needs to say more vigorously?

For starters, he needs to quit trying to convince evangelicals that Mormonism is an orthodox, with a small “o,” Trinitarian, with a capital “T,” Apostolic, with a capital “A,” faith. He is not going to win that argument [and] he doesn’t need to try. That’s not the issue. Kennedy didn’t try to defend Catholicism. He defended the right of a Catholic to run for President. What I think Romney has to do is he has to give a speech in which he defends the right of a Mormon to run for president and appeals to Americans’ basic sense of fair play. I would encourage him to say that “there was no higher percentage of Mormons in my administration than there were Mormons in the percentage of the population in Massachusetts.”

That is a concern that has been expressed to me by my constituents–that he would have a disproportionate number of Mormons in his administration.

What did Romney say [when you suggested that]?

He said he would consider it. [But] he has not given that speech. I’ve seen him go to South Carolina and say things like, you know, “Jesus Christ is my Lord and Savior.” Well, you know what, that ain’t going to work in South Carolina. The most generous description [evangelicals] will give [Mormonism] is the one that I give it, which is that it is the fourth Abrahamic religion, you know, Judaism being the first, Christianity being the second, and Islam being the third. And Joseph Smith plays the Mohammed figure in a fourth Abrahamic faith, but it is not a Trinitarian Christian faith.

Need I remind you that Mormonism isn’t Christian?

Brownbackers instinctively know that neither Giuliani nor Romney are acceptable; neither deserve their vote. If either choice is presented as the only one, they will look elsewhere: either third party or a write-in. You can count on it. This is no bluff.

A Word About the RINO Rumors

Sam BrownbackRight now, RINOs, Helioleftists, and various other atheist moonbat treefrog America-haters are spreading rumors that Brownback is withdrawing from the GOP race today. I have one thing to say to these people- So what?

The GOP in its current form has become infected with people like Giuliani, who’d rather talk to his latest harlot on the telephone than talk to a roomful of veterans; McCain, whose only contribution to this campaign has been sucking airtime away from valid candidates; Romney, who wears magical underpants and worships a phony deity masqueraded as Our Lord; and Huckabee, who talks the talk but doesn’t walk the walk. Brownback is better off as a write-in candidate, if it comes to that, than he is competing for the nomination with this assortment of closeted Democrats and flagrant heathens.

It is saddening, of course, that many patriotic Americans may sin by voting for the GOP nominee over Senator Brownback in a write-in campaign. One may still hold out a glimmer of hope that it doesn’t come down to that. However, one must also abide by the Edicts of God. If God decides to test America’s faith by having Brownback win a write-in campaign rather than as a regular Republican nominee, let us praise the Will of God.

A write-in campaign victory would be unheard-of in the annals of American politics. It would be nothing short of miraculous. 50% of America’s atheists would convert upon receipt of the news, saving their souls; the other 50% would commit suicide or flee to New Zealand, thereby damning themselves and everyone foolish enough to listen to them in future.

Yes, the more I think about it, the more it seems to me that having Brownback drop out of the Republican race for President is the greatest victory God could give the man, and the nation. It will make us all savor the sweetness of his 2008 write-in victory that much more.

We here at Blogs 4 Brownback will, of course, stand behind the Senator, no matter what happens today or in future. If the GOP rejects Brownback, they shall cast themselves into the Lake of Fire right alongside the Democrats. Brownback is for all true Americans, not RINOs or liberals or secularists of any stripe or persuasion.

God bless America. Let us all continue to pray for Brownback’s eventual victory, and let us all work hand in hand to see that the blessed work of God comes to pass.

UPDATE: The Book of Judges, Chapter 7:

“1THEN JERUBBAAL, that is, Gideon, and all the people who were with him rose early and encamped beside the spring of Harod; and the camp of Midian was north of them by the hill of Moreh in the valley.

2The Lord said to Gideon, The people who are with you are too many for Me to give the Midianites into their hands, lest Israel boast about themselves against Me, saying, My own hand has delivered me.

3So now proclaim in the ears of the men, saying, Whoever is fearful and trembling, let him turn back and depart from Mount Gilead. And 22,000 of the men returned, but 10,000 remained.

4And the Lord said to Gideon, The men are still too many; bring them down to the water, and I will test them for you there. And he of whom I say to you, This man shall go with you, shall go with you; and he of whom I say to you, This man shall not go with you, shall not go.

5So he brought the men down to the water, and the Lord said to Gideon, Everyone who laps up the water with his tongue as a dog laps it, you shall set by himself, likewise everyone who bows down on his knees to drink.

6And the number of those who lapped, putting their hand to their mouth, was 300 men, but all the rest of the people bowed down upon their knees to drink water.

7And the Lord said to Gideon, With the 300 men who lapped I will deliver you, and give the Midianites into your hand. Let all the others return every man to his home.

8So the people took provisions and their trumpets in their hands, and he sent all the rest of Israel every man to his home and retained those 300 men. And the host of Midian was below him in the valley.

9That same night the Lord said to Gideon, Arise, go down against their camp, for I have given it into your hand.

10But if you fear to go down, go with Purah your servant down to the camp

11And you shall hear what they say, and afterward your hands shall be strengthened to go down against the camp. Then he went down with Purah his servant to the outposts of the camp of the armed men.

12And the Midianites and the Amalekites and all the sons of the east lay along the valley like locusts for multitude; and their camels were without number, as the sand on the seashore for multitude.

13When Gideon arrived, behold, a man was telling a dream to his comrade. And he said, Behold, I dreamed a dream, and behold, a cake of [a]barley bread tumbled into the camp of Midian and came to the tent and struck it so that it fell, and turned it upside down so that the tent lay flat.

14And his comrade replied, This is nothing else but the sword of Gideon son of Joash, a man of Israel. Into his hand God has given Midian and all the host.

15When Gideon heard the telling of the dream and its interpretation, he worshiped and returned to the camp of Israel and said, Arise, for the Lord has given into your hand the host of Midian.

16And he divided the 300 men into three companies, and he put into the hands of all of them trumpets and empty pitchers, with torches inside the pitchers.

17And he said to them, Look at me, then do likewise. When I come to the edge of their camp, do as I do.

18When I blow the trumpet, I and all who are with me, then you blow the trumpets also on every side of all the camp and shout, For the Lord and for Gideon!

19So Gideon and the 100 men who were with him came to the outskirts of the camp at the beginning of the middle watch, when the guards had just been changed, and they blew the trumpets and smashed the pitchers that were in their hands.

20And the three companies blew the trumpets and shattered the pitchers, holding the torches in their left hands, and in their right hands the trumpets to blow [leaving no chance to use swords], and they cried, The sword for the Lord and Gideon!

21They stood every man in his place round about the camp, and all the [Midianite] army ran–they cried out and fled.

22When [Gideon’s men] blew the 300 trumpets, the Lord set every [Midianite’s] sword against his comrade and against all the army, and the army fled as far as Beth-shittah toward Zererah, as far as the border of Abel-meholah by Tabbath.

23And the men of Israel were called together out of Naphtali and Asher and all Manasseh, and they pursued Midian.

24And Gideon sent messengers throughout all the hill country of Ephraim, saying, Come down against the Midianites and take all the intervening fords as far as Beth-barah and also the Jordan. So all the men of Ephraim were gathered together and took all the fords as far as Beth-barah and also the Jordan.

25And [the men of Ephraim] took the two princes of Midian, Oreb and Zeeb, and they slew Oreb at the rock of Oreb, and Zeeb they slew at the winepress of Zeeb, and pursued Midian; and they brought the heads of Oreb and Zeeb to Gideon beyond the Jordan.”

So shall the victory of Brownback confirm God’s Infinite Love for These United States.

Making the Wrong Choice

EvangelicalsIn life it’s often easy to look back at times when one was presented with two or more choices and the wrong one was selected. Hindsight, as they say, is 20/20. But foresight can be too. A number of evangelicals have threatened, somewhat wisely, that if, in the worst case scenario, RINO Rudy Giuliani, a crossdressing pro-abortion pro-gay anti-gun liberal, were to get the GOP nomination, that they would vote third party rather than support the Republican party’s nominee. I do agree that, for conservatives with a conscience, Rudy is no choice at all. A Giuliani victory would destroy the Republican party and set back social conservatism for decades. It would likely set the pro-life movement, which has been gaining momentum for decades, back as well. That would be disastrous.

My reaction to the third party threat was, why don’t evangelicals and right thinking social conservatives throw themselves behind a good old fashioned honest to goodness conservative now, rather than wait until it’s too late and then go fishing in the third party dregs for a candidate with legs? It seems to me there are three decent choices: Duncan Hunter, who deserves the Secretary of Defense nod from whoever wins, Mike Huckabee, a decent Baptist Pastor who may not be as strong when it comes to fiscal and economic issues, and Sam Brownback, who is simply the best principled, conservative Republican in the race. Why, I ask, why? Rather than complain about the perceived top tier, why not get behind one of the other candidates and boost him up to frontrunner status? And still I wonder.

MemeIt seems a new meme is being put forth in the media which traditional conservatives should find quite alarming, myself included. Race 4 2008 has brought this to our attention with a post up this evening and I think the issue deserves consideration. The chilling title is The Dawning Realization of the Social Right. If the assertions are true, if the conclusions being made are accurate, it will not be a new dawn or morning in America, rather it will be the emboldening of the social wrong: midnight in America.

Simply stated, some in the media are suggesting that evangelicals and social conservatives are actually seriously considering getting behind Willard “Mittens” Romney. I know you’re laughing or shaking your head at this. And I hope you’re right. Evangelicals backing Mitt, flip-flopper extraordinaire? The Republican John F. Kerry?

It seems like they’d be much more comfortable with one of their own: a social conservative, someone who supported the Reagan revolution, and a Christian rather than a Mormon. So I’m not sure if these whisperings are true or not or if it’s just a liberal media trick to try and convince evangelicals to back their dream candidate. It wouldn’t surprise me a bit if this is just a hamhanded attempt at manipulation, propagenda (propaganda with an agenda) if you will.

Is Mormonism Christian?

Filed under: Christianity,Faith,Idiocy,Mormonism — Psycheout @ 8:05 pm

The Book of MormonEarlier today I noticed a post on Hot Air that linked to an Olbermann Watch post in which the author seemed all hot under the collar that someone would be allowed to state the very obvious fact that Mitt Romney is not a Christian.

Wednesday night, leftist Ana Marie Cox was his guest, and she proceeded to pass judgment on the Christianity of Mitt Romney.

Hmmm. Mitt Romney is not a Christian. He’s a Mormon. So what’s the big deal? Whether one is Mormon or not or Christian or not isn’t really that important in this case. Mormonism isn’t Christian. Romney is a Mormon. Therefore Romney is not a Christian. So what?

I suggest that confused readers see Is Mormonism Christian? to gain an understanding of the underlying truth.

The reason Mormonism is not Christian is because it denies one or more of the essential doctrines of Christianity. Of the essential doctrines (that there is only one God, Jesus is God in flesh, forgiveness of sins is by grace alone, and Jesus rose from the dead physically, the gospel being the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus), Mormonism denies three of them: how many gods there are, the person of Jesus, and His work of salvation.

And how else does Mormonism differ from Christianity?

Mormon theology teaches that god is only one of countless gods, that he used to be a man on another planet, that he became a god by following the laws and ordinances of that god on that world, and that he brought one of his wives to this world with whom he produces spirit children who then inhabit human bodies at birth. The first spirit child to be born was Jesus. Second was Satan, and then we all followed.

Aside: this sounds suspiciously like Scientology.

But, the Bible says that there is only one God (Isaiah 43:10; 44:6,8; 45:5), that God has eternally been God (Psalm 90:2) — which means he was never a man on another planet. Since the Bible denies the existence of other gods (and goddesses), the idea that Jesus is the product of a god and goddess couple is rejected. The Bible tells us that Jesus The Jesus of Mormonism is definitely not the same Jesus of the Bible. Therefore, faith in the Mormon Jesus, is faith misplaced because the Mormon Jesus doesn’t exist.

And frankly, this would be blasphemous for a Christian:

Mormonism teaches that the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross itself (and receiving it by faith) is not sufficient to bring forgiveness of sins. It teaches that the forgiveness of sins is obtained though a cooperative effort with God; that is, we must be good and follow the laws and ordinances of the Mormon church in order to obtain forgiveness.

I am saved because I have accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior. He died on the cross so that I could be forgiven of my sins. My personal relationship with G-d is all I need. The idea that I have to belong to a church that is less than 200 years old to obtain forgiveness from Him is an idea that’s out of this world. Literally.

Mormons are free to believe what they wish, but conflating Mormonism and Christianity is wrong. Is Buddhism Christian? Is Wicca? No. And neither is polytheistic Mormonism.

Let’s cut to the conclusion:

Why is Mormonism a non Christian religion? It is not Christian because it denies that there is only one God, denies the true Gospel, adds works to salvation, denies that Jesus is the uncreated creator, distorts the biblical teaching of the atonement, and undermines the authority and reliability of the Bible.

And furthermore:

Becoming a Christian does not mean belonging to a church, doing good things, or simply believing in God. Being a Christian means that you have trusted in the true God for salvation, in the True Jesus — not the brother of the devil, not the god of Mormonism, not the gospel of Mormonism. Mormonism is false and cannot save anyone.

NOTE: This is not an attack on Mormons, just a simple clarification of the facts. Mormons can be very nice people. They are simply not Christians. And neither is Mitt Romney. And this has little bearing on his fitness for the Presidency anyway. There are many reasons not to support Mittens that have nothing to do with his faith.

Olbermann Watch is free to attack Keith Olbermann all they want. Let’s face it: he deserves it. But the linked post was a ridiculous stretch.

Update: A quick overview of Mormon theology. This may surprise you.

Update 2: If you have an hour and would like to delve in deeper, watch this documentary: The Bible vs. The Book of Mormon. It’s very interesting for those who don’t know much about the Mormon faith. The documentary demonstrates that there is ample evidence for The Holy Bible and none for The Book of Mormon. None until Joseph Smith read the golden plates which nobody has ever seen.

I really do pray for my Mormon bretheren, for their false prophet and even they are accursed.

8 But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.

9 As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

And in John 14:6 the message of Jesus is clear:

Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.

Not surprisingly, Christ says nothing about Joseph Smith, who is obviously a pretender and a false prophet.

Update 3: If you’re in the mood for debunking false religions, you might want to check out a 30 minute documentary on Scientology. It’s a cult, no doubt about it. See Scientology and Me. It’s amazing what some people will believe: really bad science fiction as religion.

Update 4: The Independent Conservative is a little more blunt about it than me: Does Mitt Romney Wear Magic Mormon Underpants?

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!

A Powerful Prayer Against Witchcraft

Be gone!This will stop any witches you encounter dead in their tracks:

Father,
In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I plead the precious uncorruptable blood of Jesus over myself and my family and everything that belongs to us. I ask for giant warrior Angels to be loosed from Heaven to surround and protect us. As your war club and weapons of war I break down, undamn, and blow up all walls of protection around all witches, warlocks, wizards, satanists, and the like, and I break the power of all curses, hexes, vexes, spells, charms, fetishes, physic prayers, physic thought, all witchcraft, sorcery, magic, voodoo, all mind control, jinxes, potions, bewitchments, death, destruction, sickness, pain, torment, physic power, physic warfare, prayer chains, and everything else being sent my way or my family members way, and I return it and the demons to the senders right now!, SEVENFOLD, and I BIND it to them by the blood of Jesus!

Father, I pray that these lost souls will find the light of your son Jesus.. Their own snares and traps have been set against themselves.. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth I now loose them from all mindcontrol of Satan!.. Father I also ask that you Bind the Holy Spirit to there hearts as a guide to your son Jesus.. So they may be set free from the bondages of Satan.

In Jesus name I pray..
Amen

This prayer should protect you against the magicians of Satan. Wiccans will stop in their tracks if they hear this prayer uttered against them. If you say it with enough spirit in your heart and with the imperishable faith that the Lord God Almighty is on your side, you may even cast out their demons with this prayer.

Don’t use it in the same room as La Mona or her familiar La Pato, though. They’ll burst into flames.

Mitt Romney: Don’t Talk About My Religion (I Will)

Filed under: Mitt Romney,Mormonism,RINOs — Psycheout @ 2:03 am

Ask Mitt NothingSince 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.
