The Problematic Presidential Campaign of Mitt Romney, currently Governor of Massachusetts.
by James R. Spencer
I have never made a political candidate's religion the number one priority when trying to figure out who to vote for. I tend to be conservative politically. So, I would probably vote for Joe Lieberman, a Jew, before I would vote for Jimmy Carter, who claims to be a born again Christian. I am not anti-Mormon, but I am anti-Mormonism. I hope you have the ability to discern between those two positions.
But there is at least one thing that bothers me about Mitt Romney, and that is his apparent inability to keep his thoughts straight on important matters. You can get a good idea of by reading the sidebar article by Bryan Fischer.
The second thing that bothers me are his statements on polygamy. (Quoted from an artcle at Examiner.com):
"The practice of polygamy is abhorrent, it's awful, and it drives me nuts that people who are polygamists keep pretending to use the umbrella of my church," he adds in his ornate office at the State House. "My church abhors it, it excommunicates people who practice it, and it's got nothing to do with my faith."
Wow! Governor Romney thinks polygamy is abhorrent, awful, and the worst sort of violation of marriage he can think of! So, does he think that the polygamy of his great-grandfather, Miles Park Romney, was abhorrent? Miles Romney had five wives. Every prominent Mormon from 1850 until the end of the Nineteenth Century had plural wives. They believed they could not "become Gods" unless the practiced polygamy.According to their beloved Brigham Young, the Mormon Church would never give up polygamy. And Mormon Apostle and scholar Bruce R. McConckie said Mormon Polygamy will be reinstated immediately after Christ returns to the earth in the Second Coming.
Romney thinks polygamy has nothing to do with his church?????
The Mormon Church has never Renounced Polygamy!
It is a fantastic deception when Mitt Romney says publicly that polygamy is abhorrent and has nothing to do with his church.
