Ultimate Loyalty of Public Servants

If Muslim extremists were to pressure American politicians of the Muslim faith, would that concern the citizens of the USA. The Mayor of Chillicothe Missouri, Jeff Foli, had Mormon authorities threaten him with his church membership if he did not do what they demanded politically in 2003. He was ultimately excommunicated because he exposed these acts and would not cow-tow to their demands.

There are over 100 Mormon men in leadership positions with self interests that Mitt Romney would give ear to without question, above any other person including Billionaire Sheldon Aidelson, or even his Vice-Presidential nominee Paul Ryan. This might be of concern to any voter, and if untrue, Mitt could personally put this to rest.

Both Mayor Foli and Former Governor Romney have raised their arms to the square in the Mormon temple and made covenants to the Mormon Church, which loyalty is far superior to any oath of office taken to serve the public.

Missouri is especially important to the Mormons, who have strong desires to control the message of their history and future intents, and will not blink twice to discredit anything that stands in their way. Mormon influence is felt nationwide, as Mormon members have filtered into almost every facet of American society. Loyalty to the church reigns supreme and could prove to create great unbalance in society.

I believe it! The intentions of the Mormons church has always been to control and make the US a Mormon nation. We can kiss separation of church and state good-bye.

A book to read about the Mormons is "Under the Banner of Heaven". It's a non-fiction book and it's disturbing information about the Mormon cult.

If NBC had even hinted at doing this type of disturbing direction of discourse concerning religion against John F. Kennedy, an intelligent American people would not have listened. There were those trying to make Kennedy's Catholicism an issue, but it wasn't the media in bed with a political party run amok.

Pro-Romney Evangelical leaders underestimate the effect that their decades long denigration of Mormonism will have on their voting base. The fact that even their leaders have had to consult each other to justify their new-found support for Romney should indicate that the lay members will, most likely, apathetically not show up at the polls on election day. Carl Rove's secret Evangelical weapon of the past might just be a negative this time around. To think that they can now so quickly support a Mormon, goes so strongly against the grain of the decade old disdain for Mormons, and is hard to imagine. Romney's non-transparency and flip flopping will make it difficult for Protestant Christians to support. 

On a different note. Romney would definitely not release his tax returns if he did not pay an unvarnished 10% of his gross income in tithing to the Mormon Church. If something like that were true and exposed, it would greatly effect the balance sheets and income of Salt Lake City.
