His latest excuse for not showing his tax returns is that he doesn't want people talking about how much he tithes.

26. He is very powerful in the Mormon Church-- a Bishop/Stake President

So, whether or not he wears the traditional underwear, he is a "true believer" one would have to think.

Romney's decades as a lay church leader -- first as bishop and later as stake president, which gave him dominion over all the church congregations in and around Boston -- shaped a man as orthodox and committed to his faith as any presidential nominee in history. It is an experience that demonstrates Romney's mastery of the institution and confidence in his authority.

36. He has a fairly high rank within his church

^snip^


In the back office of his Weston, Mass., headquarters a quarter century ago, Mitt Romney, the chief Mormon authority in the Boston area, told the leader of his Spanish-speaking congregation that he would not directly pay for lawyers to help the growing number of illegal immigrants in his church. Then he carefully instructed his subordinate on how to circumvent the The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints’ new hard line against such assistance and subsidize their legal aide.

"In those issues I cannot help you financially to pay for lawyers," Romney said, according to Jose Francisco Anleu, a Guatemalan immigrant. "But what I can do is allow you to give them food assistance from the bishop's warehouse," a church welfare pantry. The money saved could be used to "pay lawyers." He reminded Anleu that he could use church funds to cover rent, utilities and health care for his needy members. The money came from Anleu's budget, but, as Anleu noted decades later, it was a budget sustained by Romney's office.

A close look at Romney's leadership in his church shows how his actions sometimes clashed with his political positions, which include advocating on the campaign trail for a policy of "self-deportation." Romney's decades as a lay church leader -- first as bishop and later as stake president, which gave him dominion over all the church congregations in and around Boston -- shaped a man as orthodox and committed to his faith as any presidential nominee in history. It is an experience that demonstrates Romney's mastery of the institution and confidence in his authority.

"Mitt's responsibilities in the church had either been teaching or supportive," said Gordon Williams, who as a Boston stake president acted as Romney's mentor and patron. "When you are a bishop, you are the lone person in the wilderness, all the responsibility is yours now." Spiritually, Williams added, "this then requires the expansion of a different element of your understanding about how to interact with people -- particularly in an ecclesiastical sense, rather than being a CEO of a company."

Nothing I have to say about any of them can make me or any of us "hypocrites". They have done me and those like me actual, measurable harm, they have done so gleefully and with malice of forethought, and they deserve every. single. word. of. scorn.

SHAME on you for even suggesting they deserve tenderness or mercy from us. We deserve to respond, as harshly as we wish.

If you can't handle that, delicate flower that you are, I suggest you sit down, shut up, and stay the fuck out of the way. Your advice will NEVER be good advice for so long as they can do me and those like me actual, lasting harm while expecting me, their victim, to remain silent and simply bear it.

Anyone who needs religion to tell them how to behave or to keep them in line lack the emotional maturity to hold an elected office.

You want to be religions, keep it to yourself, keep it out of schools, keep it out of government, keep it on private property. You put it out it public, I will mock you.

44. A religion is a thing kept sacred by those who believe it, when they make the choice to profane

 

their faith by using it as a tool of politics it is they who have removed the special status from 'faith' and placed in the public square as a device of their agenda. If it was 'holy' they would keep it apart from money and power games, they don't.
The LDS promoted and paid for Prop 8 as an expression of their 'faith'. They demanded control over the lives and rights of others because of their club rules. And that's what it is, a club with club rules, nothing more.

And btw, if you think religious people respect others, I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you.

67. Religious tolerance ends when the religious try to pass laws aimed at making others adhere

 

to their religious beliefs. For instance, I will eat pork on Friday if I want to, no matter what laws anyone passes. Abortion is no one's concern except the woman first and her doctor second. It's her life and her body! Another example is Sunday Closing. And if you stop and think about the list is long.

The minute a politician pushes his religious beliefs on non-believers, using his office, that should disqualify him from any elected government office.
The United States was founded as a Secular Nation, not in any way on anyone's religion!

The War On Women is biased on religion. We need to get those religious war mongers out of our government.

Do you really think it's your duty to 'wake people up' by using mockery? And if you really think you have any power whatsoever over what others believe you're seriously deluded. So what is worse? Belief in a higher entity or delusion?

48. Their 'faith' is a crutch they use to justify their hatred

I think you should mock them and the hatred in their hearts and tell them to stop using their 'faith' as a crutch for their own sub-human behavior. Don't mock their religion. Mock their individual interpretation of that religion. You'll never get anywhere by telling them they believe in a myth, unless you want their hatred to grow even more. And no matter how smart you are you have no idea if there is a God or not. You just 'believe' there isn't and you rely on your 'faith' too.

I assume you do want to win the argument right? Mocking people's religious crutches never won anything but enmity. Mocking their behavior, on the other hand, is using solid facts.

And of course it is their actions that we mock. They are the ones who degrade and mock their faith when they take that which they claim is holy to them and use it as a tool of worldly agenda. It is not my job to keep their religion sacred, that is their job, and it is the LDS who dragged their faith into politics in the most hateful of ways. They use their faith like Rove uses a list of contacts, and that converts the 'faith' into just another political organization.
They use the 'faith' as an excuse for their behavior, and you say that excuse is theirs to use with impunity. I do not agree with you. I do not agree that if a person calls their weapons 'religion' others must not defend themselves from attacks using that weapon.
And you know, you do not know nor did you ask what I believe. I am speaking of human behavior, not of the existence or non existence of God. I never said I'm smart, I never said myth, I never said there is no God. Those are words you put into my mouth. I said they altered that which they claimed was sacred to them into a profane thing by their behavior they used their 'faith' in ways which degrade it to the level of any other political tool. If they want the 'faith' to be respected, they need to keep it out of politics. This is a faith, LDS that does not allow others to see their rituals at all. Yet they use those dogmas openly to attack others.
I do not agree that if a person calls their weapons 'religion' others must not defend themselves from attacks using that weapon.

56. Well see now, I agree with you

So why use mockery? Your argument is quite compelling, and some of it, like the part about them using their faith to act out their personal hatred is a great way to fight them with their own actions instead of attacking their religion.

and I do apologize for assuming you're an atheist.

Mockery, on the other hand is cruel and vicious. I think they're very different things. Comedy is meant to bring laughter to something taken way too seriously. Mockery isn't.

123. Well the target of a good spoof or satire is not likely to find laughter in it.

 

Mel Brooks again: "Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die."
The point being no humor about vicious bigots is going to amuse the vicious bigots. They will cry 'mockery, liars, how dare you'. Because they do not like being the punchline. The truth of the humor will offend them, which is sort of the point.

In a speech to the students of Brigham Young University, Reid said, "I also say that my faith and political beliefs are deeply intertwined. I am a Democrat because I am a Mormon, not in spite of it."

I can't wait for that one....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eucharist#Catholic

The Catholic Church teaches that when the bread and wine are consecrated in the Eucharist, they cease to be bread and wine, and become the body and blood of Christ,[39] each of which is accompanied by the other and by Christ's soul and divinity.[40] The empirical appearance and physical properties are not changed, but for Catholics, the reality is.





I mean, really. Shouldn't any politician, hell any human being be considered a little nuts for believing they are eating human flesh, and drinking blood? Ok, granted, divine flesh and blood, but really?

I thought it would be under so the bra actually works as support. Then again, I guess you wouldn't get whatever benefits you're supposed to get from the garments if they cover other garments that touch your skin instead of directly touching the skin.

I guess one positive is that she wouldn't have to worry about whether she should wear a slip with a light colored or light weight material dress. She could wear a white cotton dress on a sunny day and nothing would shine through.

me about mocking 'the faith'. My first post said :
'So if I mock anti gay bigots for bigoted actions, that is me being cruel?"
All about their actions, not the beliefs, and your reply was 'I assume you do want to win the argument right? Mocking people's religious crutches never won anything but enmity. Mocking their behavior, on the other hand, is using solid facts."
I never once said 'mock their faith' I said mock their behaviors.
So who was not reading what was written? Re read the thread, I said 'if I mock them for bigoted actions'
You simply went off on me for things I did not say. I said 'behavior' and I said 'actions' and I listed a few of those actions. In response you said 'don't mock their faith'. Which is not related to what I said. At all. Additionally, you failed to address what I actually said.

Sadly, they spend more on PR, shopping malls, condos, supporting conservative legislation, and dunking the dead than on helping the poor. They have actively disappeared big chunks of their history to look more acceptable. They practice "lying for the lord" to keep the truth about their less savory beliefs from non-believers.

They are a corporate cult.

87. I didn't see the OP as mockery

I saw it as confirmation that Romney is devout in his faith and because he wears the symbols of his faith (the underwear), he would bring the tenants of his religion to the way he would govern. That means that we MUST investigate the Mormon beliefs, beginning with the one that says a Mormon will be elected to the White House and will take orders from the LDS elders. This and other Mormon dogma is very serious information we need in order to base a voting decision.

John F. Kennedy was also feared in the beginning because of his Catholic faith. He was asked about where his loyalties would be if he became President. He gave an answer to sufficiently allayed the fears and convinced the voters that his loyalties were with the United States and the Constitution and laws of the US. Romney has not made such a statement which leaves the question open.

So, examination of his demonstrations of faith has a real place in the investigation of his worthiness, goals and plans for the Presidency. For me, based on what I've read about the faith and what I know from my own experience, I would never vote for him. But then, I would never vote Republican anyway.

113. Looks as though that's from an old Buzz Feed Article

A Brief Guide To “Mormon Underwear”

Your awkward Mitt Romney questions answered.
McKay Coppins BuzzFeed Staff
Posted Jan 25, 2012 1:19pm EST

It's perhaps the most awkward question of the 2012 cycle: What's with Mitt Romney's underwear?

The subject of long-running public curiosity, the subject occasionally pops back into the foreground, as with a widely-retweeted image earlier this year (top), and footage of the candidate in Florida this week.

From the start of Romney's career as a public figure--and, in many ways, well before then--the special undergarment worn by many observant Mormon men and women has been a point of political curiosity, debate, and derision. While provocateurs and bloggers make jokes about "magic Mormon undies," anti-Mormons try to cast the garment as something more sinister--a bizarre symbol of its wearers' fealty to a scary, secretive cult. The reality is far less exciting.
