1. The Mormon Church did

Whether Mitt personally did, I don't know.

4. Mormon Church did; also asked people for special large donations from out of state

Mittens is required to tithe 10% of whatever they know about so he already gives generously to his church to do whatever they want.

5. Oh leave Mitt alone.

I think I heard something about the building of his car elevator being stalled for some reason. Hasn't this man suffered enough?

7. If he truly wishes to be Christ-like

he's gonna have to suffer a hell of a lot more.

But how I do so hope Mr. Mitt can fix his problem with getting his hot rod up.

6. $10k.

Washington • A campaign group run by presidential candidate Mitt Romney donated $10,000 to an organization fighting to overturn legal same-sex marriage in California in 2008 at the same time Mormons were offering big financial support to the Proposition 8 effort.

<snip>

The Utah-based Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints joined with a group called the Coalition to Protect Marriage to push the constitutional amendment, and one critic claimed Mormons donated millions to the effort, funding a majority of it.

An earlier Salt Lake Tribune review revealed that Utahns donated $3.8 million to both sides of the Prop 8 campaign — more than 70 percent of it in support of the measure. Included in that total was at least $134,774 in in-kind contributions from the LDS Church for such things as air fare, lodging and audiovisual production services and equipment.

Romney’s donation came on Oct. 14, 2008, just weeks before Californians voted to pass the measure.
