Mormons ARE GREAT TO BE PRESIDENT.

You many different people out there still do not understand your imminent sake is at hand, that you need to give a full evaluation of the next course with no more Obama.

After almost four years of troubling many of you, Obama is impossible to do any good in the economics, including security and other policy matters.

In economics, Obama has just done what you don't want--by making more people poorer while making super-wealthy more wealthy, to entice the off-balancing of vast disproportional rate of wealth among the population. His appetites for growing large levels of debts are the craving and sprees to dispose your money away.

He cannot do any security by talking about getting bin laden, because the Libya and Egypt crisis was created by him to make the violences by his intrusion way of acts in the regions.

What is he going to do about Libya, as he has done much harms under international attention, which shows US on world stage is being dragged down by him? And that makes more global people no longer respects US stand.

What else can you do now?

Why do you need to ask too many questions when you have been doomed by Obama already and since you want to do the recovery which Obama has failed in four years?

How can Obama just do other things of Iraq, and health care, without the focusing on the economy as the economy is the basic priority before anything else--by doing just Iraq? And now he is to do what, to get into the economy he has ruined after four years?
If you think that way, you are out of your minds.

Do you want to ask Romney how to do the economy and foreign policy and so on?

He already told you about the overall ballpark numbers for cutting costs and the basic concepts of how the economy will work.
He had been to the world, to France, Afghanistan, Middle east, Iraq and beyond places, with high exposure of experience on world state of outlook.

At this late time of your stake, you still want to make your direction confused by asking what if Romney gives your numbers and specifics without your providing files and details of what have been done that need to move on, to be . Obama has to turn al these things to Romney without omission so that Romney will have a good work on them for you.
all people.

You can do better than that by knowing your stand of getting your new man Romney precedes anything, that Obama is to be rid of, so that, that is the best thing for time allotment and all your needs to get done with.

IT IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH OBAMA --NO MATTER WHAT HE SAYS,AS ALL HAVE BEEN PROVEN that Obama is a big failure and the biggest trouble maker for all of you in modern times.

Why do you need to ask too much, as Obama as been proven unworkable, to be fired, but only that you know all his failed matters and the economy are as important and essential as your concrete basic steps to move on for now?

But continuance with Obama makes you act like psychotics and will make your future gloomy, and do you know that?

this isn't the 1800s where your grand daddies got hopped up on liquor and chanted/danced themselves into a frenzy and just went out and murdered and raped and molested anybody they found be they American Indians or Mormons or whomever
You've been in the company of a man who said he approved murder: repeatedly; of ascetic Christians who had more than one wife fundie style.
That's religious bigotry against anyone who practices bible fundie style polygamy: the quiet out of the limelight kind practiced by Amish, the polygamous Mormon fundies, and actually even American Indians. Several of the larger tribes were, before the white man wiped out their right to a culture, polygamous.
So be aware HICK: people know what Evangel/AtheBillies are like when you gang up to exterminate people's cultures.
We Are All Part of God’s Family
When we call a fellow Church member "Brother" Lee or "Sister" Brown, we really mean it. We believe that each of us—including those who aren’t members of our Church—is a literal son or daughter of our Heavenly Father ( Hebrews 12:9 ) and therefore, our heavenly siblings. We were loved and taught by our Heavenly Father as part of an eternal family before coming to earth. So we share a bond that transcends this life. Think about it, if you truly thought of your neighbor or coworker as your brother or sister, would you treat them any differently? In the same vein, knowing that your earthly family has eternal significance might help you treat them better as well.

LoL the real nice guy says what he says about please don't talk about my faith,

and right below it I mention having to protect ourselves with machine gun technology lest you evangel/athebillies wipe us out.

IT's a TRUE FACT the PROTESTANTS WIPED OUT the E.N.T.I.R.E. north american American Indian cultural system(s) and A LARGE PART OF THAT which WAS USED to JUSTIFY IT
was VIRULENT, MURDEROUS BIGOTRY toward polygamists among the AMERICAN INDIANS who practiced it.

NOW the think they're going to turn and tear mormons who USED to practice it: not even really reserving their venom for the mormon offshoot fundies who DO practice it.

We'll see how that works out.

I'm betting we're going to see a lot of pagans shot from helicopters if you try to start treating mormons and polygamous fundie Amish and American Indians like muslims treat people.

There's going to be rule of law in the United States if we have to put on youtube that we flew over you with the above mentioned neat technologies we gave you

which you seem to wish you could turn and abuse us with.
Not gonna be happening PAGAN HICKS.

Damn you are slooooooow. Let me say this once more. PAYING A 10 % TITHE IS A BIBLE COMMANDMENT NOT A MORMON ONE!! whew, I hate to yell but hopefully you heard it this time. Not only do most churches take 10 % of your earnings in tithes but they also pass around an offering plate to help support the pastor, reverand, minister, ect..... atleast when you bring up temple ceremonies you are speaking about something that is unique to mormonism in comparison to other christian religions. But tithing? really?

Keep the Law of Tithing
Giving back a part of what the Lord blesses us with lets us contribute to His work on earth.
Giving back a part of what the Lord blesses us with lets us contribute to His work on earth. Paying tithing means giving a tenth of our income to the Church to be used for the work of God here on earth. Some people think it sounds like a hardship but it’s not—it’s a blessing. Since ancient times, God has asked his people to keep the law of tithing.

Ten percent of our income may sound like a lot, especially to many of us who already feel like we're living on the edge of our budgets. But if we keep the law of tithing God promises to "open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it" ( Malachi 3:10 ).

A blessing can take on many forms. Sometimes we are simply blessed to be able to do more with less, to find ways to save money that don't detract from our happiness. Often the simple act of taking ten percent out of our paycheck causes us to budget out the remaining ninety percent more carefully, and living by a budget always makes money go further. Whatever form the blessing takes, paying tithing reminds us that the things of God last longer than the things of the world. It helps to remember, also, that everything we have comes from God and we can show our gratitude to Him by giving a small part back.

Tithing funds are used to do the following:

-Construct temples, chapels, and other buildings
-Provide operating funds for the Church
-Assist in funding the missionary program
-Prepare materials used in Church classes and organizations
-Perform temple and family history work
-Tithing funds are not used for anyone's personal gain. The Church has a lay ministry (voluntary) worldwide.
