Despite his whole Mr. Nice routine, you may want to read this article. The scary part:
They held monthly “Fireside testimonies” — Sacrament meetings at which each member testified to his belief that he lived in Heaven before being born on Earth, that he became mortal in order to usher in the latter days, and that he recognized Joseph Smith as the prophet, the Book of Mormon as the word of God, and the Mormon church as the one true faith.
I do not want someone who believes we are in the latter days to be the President. Catholics and Christians are one thing, but Mormon is a bit too extreme for my tastes. They believe in some seriously screwball shit, like for instance believing they lived in Heaven and became mortal to usher in the latter days?? Yikes!
Another interesting block of text from the article:
“We were taught that America is the Promised Land,” he said in an interview.”The Mormons are the Chosen People. And the time is now for a Mormon leader to usher in the second coming of Christ and install the political Kingdom of God in Washington, D.C.”
The Chosen people eh? I believe there is another group who might have a point of contention with that.
And I do not believe there will be a second coming. The historical record really doesn’t make note of Jesus of Nazareth, or Yeshua Ben Joseph as he was probably known. The only real record is the Bible and we know how wrong that one can be.
So with all of this in mind, I do not want to see Romney as our President. It would be the downfall of the U.S.
And his first name is Willard? Does anyone else remember this:
And more interesting, in 1971 it was produced by Cox Business whose service I am using now to post this message.
