I don't care what his father did. He was a hypocrite, and probably used the civil rights movement to win over voters. There is no way that you can belong to a church that is racist and wouldn't let black people be priests, and that dark skin is a result of sin then claim your not racist and for civil rights.

And Mitt Romneys dad is not Mitt Romney.


So Mitt's religion, his past, comes into play but his father, his past, is irrelevant? Hate on all. I'm listening to my siggy.

Damn man, give that a rest. I know it's election season but what does that tripe aid?


No tripe here!

I was answering a question and I stand by what I said. He’s was a foreign exchange student at Harvard and his actions and statements back up my assertion about his religious preference.

President Obama always tries to pronounce things like they are said in their orginal language. Look at his speech when he was in Puerto Rico. Then you can post he is really Puerto Rican!!

I'd dearly love to see the evidence of this...

Incompetent? Oh, yes, he is. Not quite as smart as he thinks he is? That, too. Bigoted? His membership in that particular Chicago church lends a bit, but only a bit, of credence to that... His entire cabinet? Really? Not buyin' it, thanks.

But, as I said in my previous post...one can be a member of a church and not buy into the entire dogmatic slant.

Why make this thread about Obama? It isn't. It is about Romney being Mormon.

Little correction.

This thread is about using Mormonism to hate on Romney.

What does Mitts father have to do with Mitt belonging to a racist religion? His father belonged to a racist church as well.

And? People tend to dislike racist organizations. They should hate on Romney for it. You choose to ignore it, that's your problem, others aren't.

This thread is not about Obama. It is about Mitt Romneys Mormonism. Why would I go off topic?


It’s not off topic. You were expressing outrage about racism within Romney’s religion and I’m saying that Obama is a racist too. If you refuse to vote for Romney because of racism then please apply the same standard to Obama.



And no, I don't agree with Obamas church he went to. Rev Wright seems racist.


Neither do I! Rev Wright believes in black liberation theology and a world-class bigot. I hardly think Romney rises to the level of Obama’s racism. Can anyone point to a racist action or statement by Romney himself or are we just going to pin every Moron conviction we disagree with on him??

You can hardly discuss Romney without bringing in his chief opponent for the White House. In an election, aren't we supposed to compare and contrast the various candidates?

Discussing the religion of one brings forth comparisons, and contrasts between the two main rivals.

So we can condemn ANY organisation that had racism in it's past?

Or just the easy, convenient ones?

Probably, since he belongs to a racist organization, but no one can read his mind. He has a very elitist attitude, so I wouldn't doubt it.

They were openly discriminating against place people WHEN MITT ROMNEY WAS 30. Why are you saying the past? The church still wont refute their racist beliefs.

How about you not post heavily edited videos?

No actually this thread was started to get Christian opinion regarding Romney's religion. I dislike Romney but his religion has nothing to do with it.

I know religion is an important factor in a lot of people's life, Even you are not religious. I thought it was a discussion that was not being discussed. I am meeting a lot of under cover Obama supporters because of Romney's religion. I just think people are not talking about the elephant that is clearly in the room!

The church no longer does. If we are going to base everything that surrounded a candidate in their past, then the same approach should be allowed against Obama.

Fair is fair, right?

Nope!

I’m merely backing up my claim that Obama is a Muslim. The video were edited…so what?

I said this election will come down to a Marxist Muslim and a Free Market Mormon. Who do you think republicans will vote for?

How (George) Romney Championed Civil Rights and Challenged His Church


When Mitt Romney named Paul Ryan as his running mate this weekend, he not only underscored his commitment to Ryan's financial ideals -- he also sharpened the divide between his political outlook and that of his father. George Romney, the former governor of Michigan, was well known for supporting Civil Rights, not just through words but through financial policies. During his gubernatorial term, he expanded state social programs, including for programs for the poor and unemployed, and created an income tax levy.

In short, George Romney's programs resembled those of his son Mitt when he was governor of Massachusetts, but diverge nearly entirely from those advocated by his son, and his new running mate, during the current presidential campaign. A closer look at the arc leading from father to son illustrates the Republican Party's change in social outlook from the 1960s to the present.

In 1963, George Romney was able to forge a bond with Civil Rights leader Martin Luther King that seems virtually inconceivable across today's political divide. The year was a pivotal one for both men. In between launching his spring campaign in Birmingham and delivering his "I Have a Dream" speech in Washington at the end of August, King led a march in Detroit in June.

Romney had just become Governor of Michigan and declared the occasion "Freedom Day in Michigan." He sent an emissary to join the crowd of about 120,000 (had the march not been on a Sunday, he likely would have been there himself). The following year, in his State of the State address, the governor said that "Michigan's most urgent human rights problem is racial discrimination--in housing, public accommodations, education, administration of justice, and employment."

Romney was one of a number of moderate and liberal Republicans who strongly supported the Civil Rights Bill of 1964 and, at the Republican Party convention, worked on behalf of efforts to include an anti-discrimination plank in the party platform. When the party's presidential nominee, Barry Goldwater, opposed the bill, Romney refused to support Goldwater's candidacy for the presidency. When asked whether he would be campaigning on behalf of Goldwater, he said (with his characteristic directness), "You know darn well I'm not."
