With Mormonism being in the spotlight due to Romney's campaign, all the ugly secrets of Mormonism will become common knowledge.

It's been done several times. Try "Mormonism: Shadow or Reality" by the Tanners. Very good source.

There is no "ugly" secrets about mormonism. If you are referring to polygamy there were very precise reasons for it. Men were asked to marry widows with children so that they could have a roof over their heads and some rights as a married woman (it was during the civil war). So guys, let's stop being prejudiced against each other !

You need to study your Mormon history more. Polygamy started with Joseph Smith marrying a 14 yr old girl(hardly a widow with children) and went on to marry women who were already married. He would send their husbands on a mission overseas and then do the deed. It started with Joseph Smith filling his sexual needs.

The Obama Doctrine is more anti American than Anti Morman...and most Americans see right through the agenda driven tripe spewed against Mr. Romney. The voters are becoming more and more disgusted with the unvarnished HATE Speak which has come to define the Obama Presidency.

Please don't talk about people like how you talked about Joseph Smith. I can accept just about anything you say, but no disrespect to him please. I don't know where you got the info from, but it isn't true, Smith never married a 14 years old--check your websites. Besides, you would notice that Catholic priests did far worse than that : they were pedophiles, sexually harassing children, and do you they were excommunicated ? no, they weren't. So ahead, talk about mormonism when others did and continue to do FAR FAR worse !

Even the LDS church admits he did, look at his genealogy chart on the LDS genealogy site and check out Helen Mar Kimball: http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/AF/ind...

So hang the bastards, who is defending them? But Smith did have sex with a 14 yr old. One action does not OK the other.

Jon Steward laid it all out a couple of days ago:
"The Daily Show host Jon Stewart mocked the debate surrounding Mitt Romney’s faith in Mormonism.

Many conservative Christians — a major base of the Republican Party — see Mormonism as a heretical offshoot of their religion. According to a Pew Research Center survey from 2011, 53 percent of white
evangelical Protestants said Mormonism was not a Christian faith.
However, those same voters overwhelmingly support Romney in a hypothetical match up against President Barack Obama.“Simple math. I hate Barack Obama more than I love Jesus,” Stewart joked.

All sorts of cultures, colors and all backgrounds of the world people do some sort of polygamy, more than Mormons, with very huge numbers than Mormons.

MANY PEOPLE COMMIT POLYGAMY NOT BEING AS MORMONS.

Only a small percentage of Mormons do polygamy.

Should not group Mormons together, to say they all do polygamy, but on individual case for any cultures of people too.

Mormon numbers are not big around the world, like Muslims of 1.3 bilion.

I'd like to add that Mormons who still practice polygamy are mormons from the Reformed LDS church. :)

And really why do people even give a shit that Romney is Mormon? How does that matter? It's not like he's a pole smoker or anything that would be considered deviant.

Years of listening to Rev Wright God Damn America sermons led to Mrs. Obama pronouncement that "She had never been proud to be an American". Inspite of this we elected her Husband. So sad for our children. So sad for us all.
