Comments on: Romney’s religion still an issue for many Republicans http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/03/06/romneys-religion-still-an-issue-for-many-republicans/ Tracking U.S. politics Wed, 16 Nov 2016 03:39:51 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: MaryAnnDill http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/2012/03/06/romneys-religion-still-an-issue-for-many-republicans/comment-page-1/#comment-424141 Mon, 23 Apr 2012 18:32:33 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/talesfromthetrail/?p=39644#comment-424141 Mitt Romney’s religion is an interesting part of his life and nothing more. Our family was discussing this during our last family home evening. (We like to keep our kids interested in the political process, and since there is a candidate running who is a church member, FHE is a great time to talk about it. That beats an FHE on DVD lesson, I guess.)

Anyway, if he stands strong, and doesn’t shy away from his faith, I don’t think this will hurt him, once people come to realize that his religion is just giving him a strong, moral code and beliefs to live his life by.

I suppose, like race, it is not going to be P.C. for the media to pick it up.

In JFK’s case, the Catholic church is based in Rome, Italy. In Romney’s case, his church, which professes to be only true church on the face of the earth, is based in Salt Lake City, UT, USA.

In JFK’s case, Catholics don’t, as Mormons do, make sacred covenants to consecrate all that they have (time, talents, resources) to their church… and do so in the most sacred places, their temples.

If there is to be no religious test (or at least an ethical or moral test), then it would be interesting to see how the American electorate will react to a candidate for President, or the Supreme Court, who happens to be a devout Muslim… who just might happen to believe in, and support, Sharia Law.

It seems there should be some more public discussion over this matter. The reality is our domestic and international affaires are much different than they were over 200 years ago when Article VI of the Constitution was established. And they are even different since 1960.

28 And when all things shall be asubdued unto him, then shall the Son also himself be bsubject unto him that put all things under him, that God may be all in all.

29 Else what shall they do which are baptized for the dead, if the dead rise not at all? why are they then baptized for the dead?

For anyone who calls himself christian….Do not be light in your comments about spiritual things, the spiritual and eternal laws were perfectly created. Respect them.

Who would you rather have as a neighbor? A Mormon or a Catholic or a Baptist, They are all God fearing people, and just like everything in life, there are good and bad in all.

I don’t think I like these people.

I have evangelical friends and non-mormon relatives whose pastors have said such vile things about Mormons that they know are not true that they have left the congregations. Until this hatred preaching is stopped the problem will not go away. And since we all believe in free speech, we just have to keep seeking and teaching the truth.

Yes, that do that — baptism of the deceased — in the Mormon cult. Very odd.
