  • They learned from the Prop 8 backlash a few years ago. Stay the fark out of politics as much as possible. Say what you want about them - they learn from their mistakes.

  • I would think this true of all the campaign members...
  • Glad to see religion did not become a big factor in this campaign, at least on the surface. Who knows what people think when they enter the voting booth? Maybe it's an issue then.
  • They are relieved that no one started trotting out crazy Mormon faith principles? I thought they were proud to be crazy?

    Billy Graham's son was on CNN a few minutes ago spewing "don't vote Obama or we'll all end up in hell because he's pro-gay marriage." He claims that he did not know that their website had listed Mormans and a cult and they he had it taken down because "we should not be calling names" to people that we want to convert. HE NEVER SAID that he no longer thinks Mormons are a cult though! My head aches.
  • Liberals.........the Mormon thing isn't really an issue.
    Conservatives.......Obama is a radical Christian when he isn't being Muslim.
  • I was nervous when Romney first started running, I knew it would mean a lot of media coverage (and by extent a lot of misinformation) for the church. I have fielded more questions about the church from friends and coworkers this year than any other, it has given me an opportunity to actually show them what being Mormon is about with good informative results. The Church stayed out of the politics, aside from their normal encouragement to vote in general. Most members that I know (including myself) are not voting based on either candidates religious background.

    Crazy magic underwear and golden plates.

    What else is to know?
  • The one or two people I know that are Latter Day Saints would be voting for Obama if their vote actually mattered in Kansas.
  • I assume the anonymnous checks to the Church of Scientology with the handwritten note reading, "Thanks for diverting attention towards us! Keep up the good work!" will be in the mail on time as usual.

    email me your address and I'll be happy to send two nice young men to your door to explain it. ;-) sadly they wont be delivering pizza. I think they'd get a lot more people to talk to them if they brought pizza.

  • Citrate1007: Liberals.........the Mormon thing isn't really an issue unless we think it will turn off religious Right voters and make them stay home.
    Conservatives.......Obama is an agnostic, possibly an atheist when he isn't pretending to "Jesus up" and appear to be a follower of Rev. Wright for a segment of his base and attended a Muslim school and was trained in their practices for a portion of his childhood.

  • FTFA: I think it is fair to say that in the very beginning of the previous election campaign, which was more short-lived, of course, many of us were kind of surprised by the degree of misunderstanding that was out there.

    It wasn't a misunderstanding. Those assholes decided to dabble in the politics of another state and everyone called them out or being assholes. Fark LDS.

    Cool Story Sis:

    In college, my fiends and I did what every drunk college kid has done at 2am and called for our free Book of Mormon. I didn't realize they would show up at our dorm. Two weeks later the whitest of white bread boys showed up at our door and asked if we had received the book and if I could go get it so we could discuss it. So I called out to my roommate asking where it was.

    "On the coffee table under the Good Vibrations catalog."

    One of them asked what Good Vibrations was and I told them it was a catalog of sex toys and videos aimed at women.

    After turning beet red, one of them said "If this is a bad time, we can come back later."

    They left and we never got another visit.
  • Lucky for the, Romney never released his tax returns. Whatever horrid, unethical business practices "God" is telling them to conduct will remain secret a little longer.

    You mean like giving 10% of all their income no matter what, making sure they have a stocked pantry in case financial hard times hit, and donating above and beyond to charity? Horrors.

    My grandfather was a dyed-in-the-wool SOB. Possibly a post-death conversion may be the old bugger's only hope for something other than eternal hellfire, and this is assuming there is an afterlife. Any religion that wants the old bastard is welcome to him.

    Donating to your cult's rainy day fund is NOT charity.
  • It would be silly to downplay the significance of a Romney win to Mormons.

    It would be the fulfillment of prophesy.
