Mormons are known for many irritating and negative things, but satanism has never been one of them. At least not in the wards I grew up in...

Your religion isn't real, you're going to hell.

No, YOUR religion isn't real, you're the one going to hell.

No, you're going to hell!

No, you are!

No, you are!

You are!

If Romney were to somehow get the nod in 2012, Obama's reelection is all but guaranteed. The fundies will either stay home or vote for a third-party Teabagger/Libertarian candidate. Conservative Christians play nice with the Mormons when nothing's at stake, but when it comes to something like the presidency all bets are off.

"I could care less what Beck chooses to believe"

That malapropism really is the hallmark phrase of the ignorant, isn't it.

Paul loses points for the phrase #4 pointed out, but he spelled 'schadenfreude' right (and even made an adjective out of it!) so it comes out even in my book.

I really should read the entire post before commenting.

@4, "I could care less" gets to me, too.

Check out this head-scratching usage by Mitch Albom in the Detroit Free Press:

"I no longer care less where LeBron James plays. "

@7: My head a sploded when I read that.

Hating Glenn Beck for being a Mormon is like hating Hitler for being a bad painter. Sure, it's a bit irksome, but it's nowhere near the worst thing he's done.
I have now Godwon this thread.

They remind me of the orcs in the book LOTR, where they are constantly arguing, fighting, killing amongst themselves, yet immediately unite when confronted w/ one of those people.

When I was just a little Catalina, growing up Catholic in a minority Catholic town in the middle of nowhere, there was no shortage of inter-Christian strife: Even the various sects of Lutherans had problems with each other, and everyone hated the Catholics (Luckily, we had a small synagogue and a Jehovah's Witness Temple to dilute things a bit)

Nowadays, they're all huggy: The last time I attended a service with Mother Vel-DuRay, most of the hymns were Protestant - and dreary Protestant at that.

We all need to do our best to divide the Christians. It's for everyone's own good.

@8,
WOO-HOO!!! Now I'm off to covet my neighbor's goods!

Wish I had that card earlier when I was coveting his wife.
13
seeing as how Dan and Queer,Inc credit the Mormons with single-handedly passing Prop 8 the Catholics and fundies may take a shine to Mitt....
14
My imaginary friends are better than your imaginary friends.

Seriously though, 8 is right. The fact people are attacking his religion is misguided. Attack the fact he's a total moron.

The most Christian people I know are Athiests/Agnostics...These people actually follow the principles of Christ, instead of just claiming that jesus-died-for-them-so-they-are-christian-and-can-choose-which-bible-verses-to- believe

Utah used to be invaded by the Southern Baptists every summer, as they tried to convince/convert the Mormon sheep into SB sheep. Some of the arguments I overheard were quite entertaining as each "religion" tried to prove they were more legitimate. Neither really had much traction.
Here they practically drool over everything Mitt Romney does/says, and the LDS church offers special travel fares to go see Glenn Beck* - and boy do they play up the fact that both Romney and Beck are mo's. No need to even offer ballots here - between the racist rednecks/tea baggers who hate the fact that a black man was elected and the perceived chance for the Mormon church to make themselves look semi-legitimate, Romney's pretty well got this state's vote locked up without even running. (The lone exception being in the almost-normal [relatively speaking] Salt Lake City area, where Obama bumper stickers are surprisingly prevalent, and the cars haven't even been vandalized....much....)

"A Message from Brian Mickelsen
President of LDS Travel:

LDS Travel.com invites you to join them on a Constitution and Promised Land tour where you will discover the historical places and events that surrounded the framing of the Constitution, and church history. LDS Travel ends this tour at the 8 /28 restoring honor rally with Glenn Beck at the Lincoln Memorial."

(um yeah, like Glenn Beck knows anything about honor)

i love it when religious nuts rip each other to shreds...if only they would fight to the death!

It's called sarcasm, you dolts.

Religionist's couldn't exist without enemies. People who think it's o.k. for them to attack one group are in for an ugly surprise when they find themselves next on the hit list.

Teapublicans and Fundagelicals have a fetish for mob rule. Let's follow their lead and put the question up for a vote: is Mormonism just Christianity by another name or not? Is the Book of Mormon as Mark Twain wrote--

The book is a curiosity to me. It is such a pretentious affair and yet so slow, so sleepy, such an insipid mess of inspiration. It is chloroform in print.

The book seems to be merely a prosey detail of imaginary history with the Old Testament for a model followed by a tedious plegiarism of the New Testament. The author labored to give his words and phrases the quaint old fashioned sound and structure of our King James translation of the scriptures. The result is a mongrel, half modern glibbness and half ancient simplicity and gravity.

Am I a friend to the Mormon religion? No. I would like to see it extirpated, but always by fair means, not these Congressional rascalities. If you can destroy it with a book, -- by arguments and facts, not brute force, -- you will do a good and wholesome work.


LDS are a cat's whisker away from pure cultism.

The Indian casinos have bigger parking lots than most churches and they're packed on Sunday.

@18 No, it isn't.

" the LDS church offers special travel fares to go see Glenn Beck* - "

Really?
Are you sure?
Did you read the fine print?
(can you read?...)

I grew in Arizona where my small town was Catholics and Mormons. The Mormon religion seemed no weirder to me than any other. So imagine my surprise when Mitt Romney runs and people are all freaked out. It seems that there aren't that many Mormons east of the Mississippi so it is just not a familiar religion.

He is so Ken-Doll perfect and I find it very funny that his religion will be his political undoing.
