Is the U.S. Ready for a Mormon President?

Politics Staff Story

Many Mormons don't think so. Just 56% believe Americans are ready to elect a Mormon President, according to a new Pew Research Center survey.

The New York Daily News reports that

Some conservative Christians don't consider Mormons to be Christian at all, and there's plenty of often-unvoiced hostility toward Mormonism among some Christian sects.

GOP front-runner Mitt Romney may be a stricter Mormon than many of his co-religionists, The Huffington Post reports.

Romney...drinks neither coffee nor tea. And his wife, according to Mormon tradition, keeps months' worth of food storage for emergencies.

Weigh in: Is America ready for a Mormon president? Do you care about the president's religious beliefs?

I don't mind a Mormon being president but I would much rather have Donny Osmond than Romney.

We already have a Muslim, a Marxist one at that, so why not a Mormom?

Besides, we are cloes to having that now, since we have Obama and he is a Moron.

We will be able to easily control Romney and that is good enough for me.

What a stupid question. He isn't running to be a Bishop. He's running for the Presidency. Separation of church and state does not seem to have sunk in.

It is precisely THAT attitude that got him INTO office in the first place. "Anybody is better than Bush.."

I dont care what his religion is. Hes a clown, Obama is a clown. America needs somebody that will get shit done- not just tell america their big plans and not act of it. Is america so stupid that we have been electing either morons or phonys for the past several decades? I would love it if Ron Paul would become president, but that will never happen. Most people I talk to are misinformed about his views or his rationale.

What does ones religious affiliation have to do with being POTUS? I remember when one of our most beloved presidents (JFK) was running for office. Some people believed that we would be taking orders from the Pope. Keep religion out of it, I think our Constitution covers that quite well.

No, America is not ready for a Mormon President. We need a President that represents the values of most Americans: Christian Values. And no, contrary to popular beleif, Mormonism is not Christian.

Is the U.S. ready for a president who will actually defend his country without resorting to war and has promised to stay out of foreign affairs? One who abides by the constitution and actually serves his people?
We all know who that is...

You are very very correct i really don't know what you know about The mormon faith, but my brother's family just joined a mormon chruch and they used to come over all the time cook out everything it was great, but since joining this church, they run like vampires when they see a cross, preach from any book except the Bible, and we never see them any more actually were not ever talking, all those family times are now spent at other mormon home's with their families. it a little weird and quite frankly upsetting to his family members. what goes on in that church, sounds like a scam or cult of some sort?
