    I've heard people say he is un-electable because there are so many non-mormon christians in this country who won't vote for him.

    Anybody think that is true?

    I saw one survey where the biggest push against him was liberals. Conservatives where much more comfortable with Mormons. I think it is because while they don't share the same beliefs conservative Christians and Mormons are a hell of a lot closer to each other than liberals.

    I suspect those on the right who would not vote for him are probably people who refer to Catholics as Papists.

  3. The media will hold back on the anti-Mormon propaganda until after he is nominated.

    Personally, I don't care if he prays to the winter gods of Neptune; I just want to know his politics.

    As for the rest of the country: honestly, I don't think it's a big issue. It'll be made out to be a big issue, but I don't think people care. As a parallel, I think his Mormonism is similar to Obama's skin color, in that there will be a bunch of hoopla about it, but it will ultimately be a non-issue.

    I don't know that its cause he's mormon or any other cult.

    I just don't trust someone who doesn't drink coffee or whiskey.

    Something just…so….WRONG about that!

    I mean, what kind of pervert…never mind.

    I am a Mormon... Anyone that calls the church a cult, now that is plain messed up! I worship the same God as other Christian religions. We have our differences( what church doesn't?) of belief but any church by definition can be call a cult.

    Do what Jesus would do, thats my message!

    It's not funny to make fun of anyone's religion. Take your rude comments else where!

    I like most Mormons I've met. I think the world of John Moses Browning; being Mormon never hurt him any.

    Can't stand Romney the R.I.N.O. Wouldn't vote for him if somebody held a gun to my head. Why vote for the inventor of Obamacare? What exactly would be the point?

    There are ample reasons to not vote for Romney, being a Mormon isn't even in the top 100.
     
  12. I agree it will only be portrayed as a big issue by the support obama media. I don’t care about a person’s religious affiliations as long as they don’t try to restrict or influence mine. I believe that some of the best people in the world are Mormons compared to the lying gangster in the office now the choice would be clear. But then I have no love for criminal organizations so maybe I am just being unfair to the slimy bum in charge.

    What religion is obama? I am not sure but his minister preached hate I doubt that you can say the same about the Mormon Church.

    Mormons have a different take on the Bible than I do. But then again, it's not like he's a Methodist or something.

    It'll be a sizable issue for some, but it is not the reason he will wind up as McCain 2.0 if he gains the nomination. That reason would be he is a snake oil selling liberal in conservative clothing and enough people know it.

    For the life of me I don't know why people get so offended when their "organization" is called a cult. The bottom line, it is, look up cult.
     
  18. The Gallup poll that I referenced earlier certainly shows a gap between the willingness of Democrats and Republicans, but 18% of Republicans still indicated that they would not vote for a Mormon (vs 27% of Democrats).

    18% is still an awfully big chunk. I kind of think he would have a terrible time making up that many votes.
