Mormon vs Moonie: Religious Cults and American Politics http://mys.tc/2g6
Sun Myung Moon’s death and Romney’s nomination as the first non-Christian US presidential candidate have focused attention on religious cults in American Politics.
Was there ever a time when Cults didn’t sway American Politics?
Joseph Smith and the Book of Mormon Fraud/Miracle http://mys.tc/2en
Tom Cruise will never talk in public about Xenu, Mitt Romney will never talk in public about Planet Kolob.
What is weirder: Believing in the Planet Kolob or the intergalactic warlord Xenu?
To outsiders there is little more fascinating about the Mormon religion than the secret underwear that Mormon temple initiates are expected to wear day and night.
Do you think Joseph Smith would have been spared from the cuckold mob had he not neglected to put on… his magic mormon underwear?
‘By Jennifer Schuessler – For a century and a half, Mormonism has been something of a paradox in the history of the American West: passionately argued about by the church’s adherents and detractors, but largely ignored by professional scholars unsure of what to make of the religion Joseph Smith founded in 1830 or the communities created by what Mormon scripture itself described as a “peculiar people.”’
Do you think that Mormonism can become as ubiquitous as canonical Christianity?
How does Mitt Romney fit into Joseph Smith’s White Horse Prophecy and Presidential campaign to start a “Theo-Democracy”?
What do you know about Joseph Smiths Prophecy of a Mormon becoming POTUS, making America a Theocratic Democracy, and replacing Jesus Christ? lol
‘In 1848, Young famously declared, “There shall be no private ownership of the streams that come out of the canyons, nor the timber that grows on the hills. These belong to the people: all the people.”’
‘In other words, Romney will most likely be the first LDS presidential candidate with the support of a major political party behind him, this coming almost 200 years after the birth of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. But for a member of a young, minority religion whose founder was murdered, whose way of life was outlawed, whose members destroyed printing presses and formed their own militias (all within the United States), for Romney to rise to a place where he could reasonably become the leader of the most powerful country in the world is literally unheard of either in recent history or perhaps even in the history of all world religions.’
‘We know that Mitt Romney is running for President, but he’s by no means the first Mormon to do so. In fact, the tradition extends all the way to 1844, when Mormon founder Joseph Smith ran. This morning at Columbia University’s conference on Mormonism and American politics, historian Richard Bushman said that far from having a fully fleshed out platform, Smith ran primarily as a protest candidate.’
