Good riddance!!!

Mormonism is an evil cult whose aim is world domination. No one would trust a Mormon in the White House, which is why Romney is going nowhere. It's bad enough they infest Utah and large parts of surrounding states.

I object strongly to the media automatically labelling people who practice religion as "the faithful" or people of "values."

conservative newsday should be ashamed again.

The best website to learn about Mormons is actually from former Mormons - - read all about their sacred temple rituals and secret underwear!

Oh, and to go to the temple you need to pay 10% of your earnings. But for that you get a barcoded temple recommend! Oooh collect 'em all!

Religion is for Morons - oops sorry I mean Mormons.

Whatever religion you believe in, or if you choose to not believe in any organized religions, why not just follow what the founding fathers laid out for this nation. Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Religion are two of this nations greatests gifts to its citizens. If you feel the need to make remarks about someones religion, why do you feel the need to attempt to ridicule or debase people of beliefs other then your own? And no I am not Mormon, Jewish, Muslim or Christian. I believe in a persons right to believe in whatever brings them peace. So did this Nations founders.
If you do not agree with someone, thats fine. If you do not like the Freedoms that this Nation offers all peoples, then leave. Why not try to be a slightly better person and just relax a little. Maybe the Mormon faith has more then its fair share of quirkiness, but not that long ago the Catholic Church practiced torture during the Spanish Inquisition. You people need to all just start drinking decaf and relax.

I've been to Salt Lake City for the 2002 Winter Olympics. The people were very decent and hospitable, the city is clean, and the crime rate is low. Regardless of what you think of the Mormon religion, they run things pretty well there.

The Mormon False Prophet - Gordon B Hinckley - is DEAD! "Spend Eternity in Hell!"
Mutt Romney is a "PHONEY" who tells you what you want to hear and is "UN-ELECTABLE" to the majority of U.S. Voters. Make your vote count for a "REPUBLICAN" who is "ELECTABLE".
Do you want Mormon "Supreme Court Judges"? They are "On The Bench For Life" after being nominated and confirmed. Mutt, if elected, would have 4 years of opportunities to nominate these Supreme Court Judges, along with other Federal Judges? Don't think they could get confirmed, it only takes a little political "trade-offs".
Mutt & his (5) sons have "NEVER" served in the military. Could Mutt be "less qualified'' for Commander and Chief?
It is physically, fiancially, unrealistic, to send back 12 million illegal aliens. You may "wish for it", but it cannot be done.
Mutt was quoted:“Anyone earning $200,000 or less would have a new tax rate on their savings,” he said.“And that tax rate is zero.
Does anybody actually believe in this irrational, foolish, statement?
While Mormons share some beliefs, they fervently believe their "book of Mormon" is more "Holy & Reverent" than the "Holy Bible". This Cult Sect has perverted Christian teachings to create a false religion, with false prophecies and false teachings. In their beliefs, they have included (Jewish heritage in their ancestery, call all non-mormons Gentiles, perform the conversion and baptism of other religion's deceased(without their permission), and actually believe all other religions are false, and that all Non-Mormons will go to Hell.
If you want a "brain-washed", "mind-controlled", "puppet" President, then by all means, vote for Williard (Mitt) Romney.
