Romney: The Religious Mitt Of The Right

Filed under: News & Politics — Bill @ 11:53 pm

(In light of recent events about our friend the Lion Of The Left I feel obligated to speak because he cannot.)

Isn’t it ironic the Mitt Romney must defend his religion to the religious right? Today in a speech Mitt in essence apologized for his religion by trying to appease the Moral Majority stating that his particular “branch of Christianity” (Mormonism) will not have undo influence on his job should he become President.

What is particularly ironic is that the conservative religious right is concerned that a Mormon might have an influence on our nation’s path.

May I remind you of a similar speech from 47 years ago…

It was October 1960 when a young John F. Kennedy spoke in Houston to a group of ministers stating that, “I’m not the Catholic’s representative for the presidency, I am the Democratic representative for the oval office.”

The difference is that back in 1960 J.F.K. stated clearly that he was a firm believer in the separation of church and state. Today Mitt, while backpedaling his Mormonism yet trying to appease the religious right, pushed their religious agenda stating that “our nation was founded under God” and that “the cross and the menorah should be displayed in our public buildings.”

Typical politics and doubletalk.

  1. “What is particularly ironic is that the conservative religious right is concerned that a Mormon might have an influence on our nation’s path.”
    The “conservative religious right” is concerned because Mormonians are part of the “radical religious right.”
    We’re all concerned. They are the fastest growing religion in the world, they have more money than the Catholic Church and [as advertised] they’re all inbred…
    Yes, Virginia, not only is there no Santa Claus, but Christianity is a malignancy.
    Strong message to follow.
    Happy holidays.
