Sheik, how is it that you're "dumb enough" to spread falsehoods, such as claiming that Joseph Smith was a "convicted criminal". I advise you to stop spewing your worthless BS on this forum. What you are stating are nothing less than bald faced lies.

Better then a religion started by a disgruntled camel driver. Mohammad was lazy, and decided hawking prophets, and pushing pedophilia was way more fun.

There is plenty enough to attack Mitt on. Religion is way down on the list of ridiculous things to criticize Mitt for.
He strapped the family dog to the roof of the car for 1000 miles.
He invented Obamacare
He has no moral convictions
He has used his financial power to ruin American businesses.
Romney will be a bigger puppet then W.
He cannot sing AT ALL

That should be all the ammo needed to keep him out of the WH.

Your list is 100% BS. The most absurd one is "no moral convictions"... Mitt is a pinnacle of integrity, recognized by all who know him. Yes, the left will use class warfare, because they have nothing to run on. Anyone who attacks capitalism is a spineless Marxist, and that includes YOU. And who cares about a stupid mutt strapped to the car 20 years ago? "Invented Obamacare"? You must be drinking petulant Ricky's koolaid.

It ain't gonna be the Democrats who ridicule Omeny's Cult. It'll be the Reich-wing evangelical fundis and other cult leaders.

"The American Family Association's Bryan Fischer, like others on the Religious Right, has continually attacked Mormons, even going so far as to say their faith shouldn't be protected by the First Amendment and claiming that a Mormon president would threaten the "spiritual health" of the nation. But Fischer warned in a column yesterday that the "the out-of-the-mainstream media" will attack "every unusual thing Mormons have ever believed or done" -- helpfully listing a litany of things he deems "unusual" about Mormonism.

The Southern Baptist Convention's Richard Land has likewise claimed that progressives will make Romney's faith a campaign issue -- while he himself insists that Mormonism is "technically... a cult."

The Christian Broadcasting Network's David Brody used the same tactic this week when he posted a video of a Ron Paul supporter grilling Romney on quotes from Mormon scripture -- and then claiming that Democrats and liberals will be the ones to attack Romney's faith.

The Values Voter Summit, the Religious Right's marquee event, fell apart last year after the pastor who introduced Gov. Rick Perry repeated his claims that Mormonism is a "cult" that worships a "false god." Live links to all those examples: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/michael-b-keega...

Actually, this Gallup poll shows that Democrats are more likely to vote against a Mormon candidate than Republicans: http://www.gallup.com/poll/148100/hesitant-su...

Then go tell the theologian expert and spiritual adviser who spent now a second hour bringing us to the light -O'Donnel on MSNBC

You guys are so low to use religion -slimy and not acceptable by most Americans- and your little quotes saying the other side started it won't save your hateful little butts

But religion is not the issue

The DEBT is the issue

Paying off the debt has caused devaluation of the dollar due to creating money for it

The devalued dollar is causing inflation

The devalued dollar is causing high gas prices

What is the President's plan to deal with debt. Squat-just make fun any suggestions to cut back the budget with stupid comments like -Trojan Horse, social Darwinism

GET IT TOGETHER
And so it goes

Why does this not surprise me. BUT a BIG lie. Reid is Mormon and they swarm around him. OH, that's right he thinks like them

Mormonism is not the ISSUE

The DEBT is the issue

What is the President's plan to cut the budget and stop the devaluing of the dollar.

Absolutely SQUAT!!!

His plan is to attack any plan offered to address it with stupid comments like Trojan Horse, social Darwinism and paving over National Parks

When you need to choose between a Muslim, or a Mormon the Mormon wins every time. In 2008 Obama got 57% of the female vote. In 2004 Kerry go 53% of the female vote, and lost. In 2000 Gore got 52% of the female vote, and he lost. Right now, with all the hoopla about free birth control, our favorite Muslim has 49% of the female vote. Doesn't look good for the hime team!!!

Dunce, Obama has taken the lead over Romney in the swing states due to the women voters. Their concerns for healthcare, which the cons want to take from them or require backroom tranvaginal examinations or video on demand fluoroscopes of the womb before receiving them, is leading the exodus from the radical right. Thank sanatorium for a job well done, losing so much vote for the cons and limbot for playing lead trumpeting elephant that has caused his own problems.

Dunce, the number one issue with women is the economy

Don't count your eggs to soon

The Debt is the issue

Where is your plan to lower the debt -Mr. President

It is always the economy. The Democrats want us to believe the Unemployment number is down to 8.2% even though there are 88 million workers unemployed, and they only created 120,000 new jobs. They think, because their supporters are stupid, we are too. Huh uh!!!
