thanks for sharing.
Way too harsh, man. I don't think anyone here said they despise him. Some felt that they would not vote for him based on his religion. I disagree with that but it is their choice in our system. Calling people that you really don't know "so-called" Christians over such a minor thing is really disrespectful.
I agree.Out of all the main candidates,I felt he was the least sincere in his covictions.Also,as a person who was involved with a girl of the Mormon faith,I can tell you those people have a very strange view on matters of morality.
I'm curious, what makes you think anyone here "despises" Romney. I haven't even seen anything that would be considered disrespect.
Not true I voted for Huckabee and would have voted for Mccain if Huck wasnt there. No one knew for sure what Romney stood for and if he wasnt in the race Huckabee would have won S Carolina and killed mccains momentum from the beginning.
What was harsh about it? There were several comments that Romney's religion was a perversion of Christianity. Isn't that harsh?
wayward or cantankerous.
persistent or obstinate in what is wrong.
turned away from or rejecting what is right, good, or proper; wicked or corrupt.
I stand by my statement these people are judgmental hypocrites if they are in fact Christians.
Maybe if people like George Bush (and Huckabee now) didn't blatantly exploit religion to further their political interests, people wouldn't have to worry about Romney's evil mormonism indoctrinating the American people if he became president.
Thanks for sharing.
I actually believe Huck, he does seem to care about people, in a very Christian way.
Now W, is a hack. I bet I could count up the number of times he has: worked in a soup kitchen, donated to a charity (without writing it off in his taxes), or volunteered at a hospital, on one hand!
Who said they or we "despise" him. Heck I respect the heck out of the guys accomplishments. I think most of the posters where being honest about their feelings regarding his religion. To many it is turely a stumbling block in voting for him. That's just people being honest about their opinion, and that's ALWAYS a good thing regarless how you feel about that opinion. Of course most of us in that boat don't want Hilliary or Obama either, difference being that we have a laundry list of issues with them and not JUST their religion.
nouna person who professes beliefs and opinions that he or she does not hold in order to conceal his or her real feelings or motives
As far as I can tell, I've not been duplicitous at all. I haven't pretended to believe anything I don't believe.
As far as judgmental, I think even a cursory look at the Scriptures would show that what Mormons believe is not Christianity. That's all I've said.
Why try to hijack a perfectly civil conversation by being a jerk?
