Mitt Romney

Romney There No Help for the Millionaire's Son?...

steve benson Sep 2012

There are certainly a wide variety of factors at play in who ends up winning the presidential sweepstakes in just over 50 days (Many of those reasons are overtly and non-religiously political, so we won't address them in this forum, per Admin rules).

However, the Big and Legitimate Question here at RFM is:

Will Mitt's Mormonism end up doing him in?

Written by Cathy Walker-Gilman to Mrs. Romney - WOMEN

Dear Mrs. Romney:

I work very hard in my daily life to assume the best about people. So the only thing I am going to assume about you is that you are probably a pretty nice person with a good heart. I like to make this global assumption without the taint of the opinions of others.

And I would appreciate it if you would stop assuming things about me.

Media reports are taking note of the repeatedly demonstrated fact that Romney is a Mormon who apparently is internally lacking in essential core moral values . . .

Young Mormon Male Mitt Romney Gang-Assaults a Gay Classmate Violence-Justifying LDS Church Apostle Boyd K. Packer Burst with Pride

Mitt Romney donated $10,000 to Prop 8


This may not hurt him while he is still fighting for the Republican nomination, but once he goes head to head with Obama, it will be a different story.

Mitt Romney's Mormon Secrets

Another article about Mitt: Who in God's name is he?

by Stray Mutt Feb 2012

The article starts this way, and it reminds me of so many Mormon men I've known:

I asked a captain of American finance what he had made of Mitt Romney when they were young colleagues at Bain & Company. “Mitt was a nice guy, a smart businessman, and an excellent team player,” he ­responded without missing a beat. Then came the CEO’s one footnote, delivered with bemusement, not pique: “Still, whenever the rest of us would go out at the end of the day, we’d always find ourselves having the same conversation: None of us had any idea who this guy was.”

Washington Post Article on racist history of the Mormon Church

by caedmon Feb 2012

The LDS church has neither formally apologized for the black priesthood ban nor publicly repudiated many of the theories used to justify it for more than 125 years.
