America won’t elect a non-Christian, says Romney

Well, it will have if it elects Romney, no?

Why does everyone afford the Mormons the mantle of Christian “respectability” (cough cough)? MORMONS ARE NOT CHRISTIANS. (”Christians” aren’t really Christians, either, but the stick for beating that one is long broken.) What’s so hard to understand about this? All you have to do is look—just a little—into their beliefs and you can see that they’re not.

Mormonism is a cult that just happened to get lucky and survive this long…possibly by virtue of claiming connection with an older, more successful and far more virulent cult…Christianity itself.

Either way, all of this simply reveals how little the American people understand their own constitution: religious belief is not a valid criteria for determining eligibility for public office. Religion shouldn’t even be an issue in an election.

This ignorance is the REAL reason why we’re f*cked.

    Haven’t we been through this argument once before?
    I agree that it’s a cult…but I’d argue it’s a Christian cult.
    it’s funny that Romney doesn’t like to discuss the logistics of his religion, but he likes to remind people that he is religious. He knows the weirdness of Mormonism doesn’t set well with people, but, really if we look at Christianity with a critical eye, there is some pretty weird shit going on there.

    Mormonism is a cult that just happened to get lucky and survive this long…possibly by virtue of claiming connection with an older, more successful and far more virulent cult…Christianity itself. kinda like what Christianity did with Judism.

    Strangely, In politics, there is no separation of Church & State. Religion & politics just seems to feed off of each other.

    Yeah, we’ve been through it before. I agree that they are a cult which WANTS you to think that they are a form of Christianity (they believe that they are a “reformation” of that religion, a return to its roots), but again, when you look at some of their core beliefs (the “exaltation” of God, for example, whereby the deity progressed from being a corporeal entity just like us on another earth through a series of stages until it achieved godhood), you can easily see that they are totally incompatible with those of both Judaism and its heretic child Christianity.

    Of course there’s some “weird shit” going on in so-called Christianity as well. These religions are aberrations, the products of sick minds. What else can you expect?

    Yeah, Mormonism does start to sound like some weird aberration of Star Trek, if i think about it.

    If you say religion is a product of sick minds, then it follows that mankind is insane.
    That can not be so, unless you are religious & think you have been saved from the insanity of mankind.
    If on the other hand you believe in humankind, then you must think of Religion as a human construct,
    Religious insanity in this context, is just confusion, …just “weird shit” as you call it .

    I don’t mind taking responsibility for being human. What i don’t accept is a particular religion telling me what that is.
