You are obviously not very well versed in mormon theology. I suggest you read up on it.

Besides that, the morals that the bible teaches do not belong to the bible. Jesus did not invent morality. The same morals that you get from your christianity exist outside of christianity. Many atheists and people of other religions share the same morals, because they are universally humanistic. If you need the bible to tell you what's moral and what's not, that speaks volumes about your character.

Never in my life did I think I would witness christians in the south defending Mormons. Ironically it is not because they have became open minded but only because the churches say vote Romney. They have no clue how different the religions are.

I agree, 100%. It's either vote Romney because he's "more godly," or because he's "anyone but Obama, the Anti-christ."

So many people are uneducated, and have neither the desire, nor the will, to change that.

We will not be going to church with Romney .We want someone who can run the country.JFK was hated for his religion.Oh and he was very rich to.Somehow if a epublician is rich he had to do something wrong to get his money but if a democrat is rich then hes a selfmade man. can't have it both ways.

You said it perfectly. Anyone but Obama,which is not the best way to elect our next leader . I thought the elections would have been separated by racial lines not religious themes. Given the condition we were in, I think Obama has done as well as anyone could have.

Separation of Church and State is about keeping the Government out of religion not the other way around.
In the Garden of Gethsemane, Jesus prayed,“Not my will but Thy will be done.” What do we ask God every time we pray the Lord’s Prayer?“Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”
So what is it that will help to realize God’s rule here on earth?
Electing the candidate that is more closely operating by God’s values and priorities!
The candidate that can best be trusted to keep their word and act in the best interests of all Americans!
Yes! Romney is a Mormon but he is pro-life and he is against Homosexual Marriage.

The Mormon religion requires high moral standards that Romney espouses to follow.
Compare that to Obama who appears to have little or no moral values what-so-ever.
You decide!
Romney is neither pro-life nor anti-gay marriage. Look at his ACTUAL record as governor in Massachusetts. More liberal than Ted Kennedy.

Look at the companies Romney invested in: Stericycle (disposes of aborted fetuses) NOT pro-life--PRO-PROFIT--even if it is from the murder of innocent children.

Obama sat in the situation room and watched 4 Americans Die in Benghazi.
E-mails prove the marines, C-130s and the fighter aircraft were told explicitly by the White House to stand down and do nothing. This is not a terrorist action.

Considering Obama’s record over the last 4 years it’s an excellent way to vote! It’s the same thing Democrats used in 2008 anybody but McCain. Of course when Democrats us it, it’s a great strategy. LOL

Of course the Ten Commandments don’t belong to the Bible!
And all the parables Jesus taught in the Bible must have been thought up by someone else.
You people are ridiculous.

Separation of church and state is about keeping religion out of government.
If "god's rule" belongs in politics, then which god?

Only christians believe that their god is the right one, just like every other religion.

And what evidence do you have that Obama has no morals?

If simply being mormon means that Romney lives up to it's high moral standards, what does that say about christianity?

Obama is a christian, and, according to you, he has no morals.
If religion has no part in politics then why does every Politician claim to be a Christian? Why do politicians visit Billy Graham? Why does ever president have a religious advisor? Why was the Reverend Wright an election issue? Noooo! There’s no religion in Government.

There is only one GOD the GOD of the Bible (Father Son and Holy Spirit) the GOD of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

Anyone who thinks it’s ok to kill a child before it is born has no moral compass. When a President says that a child born alive during a partial birth abortion cannot be saved he has no morals. Obama is not a Christian, claiming you are does not make you one it’s how you live your life.

The simple fact that so many christians and churches are becoming involved in politics is disturbing and needs to be stopped with force if need be. The fact that so many of them support Romney shows chrstianities hipocrisy. They support someone that just as well be a devil worshiper because mormanism is a false religion or at least by chrsitians on teaching it is.

Before anyone says well Obama is a muslim which is false. At least islam is a real religion represented by a true prophet unlike some made up bullshit by a man that just wanted to screw multiple wives.

I don't care! I don’t have to agree with everything Mitt Romney does or believes!
The question is which Candidate is closest to / or matches what I believe to be right!
That is all that matters, and in this election that Candidate is Romney!

Easy question to answer, politicians play the christian card because that is what the voters want. Claiming to be christian and living it is two totally separate issues. If any politician claimed to be atheist or even agnostic, regardless how good of a man he was, it would be political suicide.

This alone is reason enough for any true American citizen to vote for Romney.
