Is Romney's Mormonism an issue -- for the 'liberal' media?

I've written a lot about how I think that if Mitt Romney is the GOP candidate for President next year, the "hard" evangelical Christian wing of the party won't be able to vote for him, because Mormonism is not just another religion, it's heretical Christianity. Well, some pundits are thinking that the liberal media that's in President Obama's pocket (as if that might actually be true) will exploit the issue to keep reminding the evangelical Christians in the GOP that they can't possibly vote for him.

You gotta admit, it's a good idea. Whereas some evangelical Christians are entirely alright with electing a heretic cult member, because their social goals (criminalizing homosexuality, criminalizing abortion, making women 2nd class citizens, jailing teenagers for having sex, things like that) are the same.

We'll see. I rather think that the idea of making the main issue about Romney, if he is the candidate, his outrageous amount of money rather than his religion. I'm OK with that. However, it's still my theory that the Great White Dope, Rick Perry, will make a "surprising" comeback and become the GOP Prez candidate. Herman Cain's peccadilloes just make me feel more comfortable with my fear that the Most Dangerous Man in America will indeed be running against Obama next summer.

"The major networks are heavily invested in Barack Obama's reelection," said Richard Land, a leader with the Southern Baptist Convention who heads its ethics and religious liberty commission.

"And they're all going to run detailed specials, now that we have the first Mormon nominee for president: 'What does the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints believe?' And they're going to go into all the beliefs of Mormonism, hoping to scare the 40 percent of independents who make up the decisive vote in the electorate to not vote for someone who believes such things."

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, agreed.

"I think the media, and the American public via the media, will know all they want to know about Mormonism," Perkins said. "I think the left-leaning media that is sympathetic to the president will try to drive a wedge deeper between him and social conservatives."


Chuck Colson, a former Nixon White House official who went to prison for his role in the Watergate scandal and is now head of Prison Fellowship Ministries, wrote on Oct. 17: "Is the Mormon faith Christian? No. It is not. There are significant and un-reconciled doctrinal differences between Mormonism and Christianity, like the sole sufficiency of Christ and the exclusivity of the Bible."

"Having said that, there may be no other group of people I appreciate more as co-belligerents than the Mormons," Colson said. "They are stalwarts on life, traditional marriage, and religious liberty issues."

So -- did you think I was kidding about that stuff highlighted in yellow up above? No, I wasn't.

Both Mormon and non-Mormon scholars are aware of a hard-core pornographic drawing in the "Book of Abraham" which is Mormon-approved scripture.
The same Book is part of the "Pearl of Great Price" which, along with the "Book of Mormon" and the "Doctrine and Covenants," make up the LDS church's "triple combination" in one volume.
The porn is found in Fig. 7 of Facsimile 2 in the "Book of Abraham" which shows two beings facing each other, which were described by Joseph Smith as representing the Holy Ghost and God the Father, the latter clearly showing an aroused male sex organ.
After Smith published this sketch in his newspaper in 1842, which offended Mormon sensibilities, the phallic portion was whited out for more than a century until the "restored" LDS church decided in 1981 to restore what had long been censored!
Equally shocking was the discovery that the "Book of Abraham" had nothing to do with Abraham or his God but was actually based on ancient Egyptian funeral documents depicting occultic obscene practices - and the original sketches showed an erotic phallus on both beings including the one Smith blasphemously claimed was the Holy Ghost!
For further information see "Book of Abraham" (Wikipedia). Also see Jerald and Sandra Tanner's "Mormonism - Shadow or Reality?" which on 76 pages reproduces the original Egyptian X-rated drawings and shows how Smith altered them and created one of his many frauds. Highlights of the classic Tanner work can be seen by typing "Facts From Mormons" and "What LDS Leaders Say" on Yahoo.
