Fr Dwight Longenecker Asks, Does Mitt's Mormonism Matter? Comments

Most Americans are unaware of just how peculiar the beliefs of Mormons are. Do they know about Mormonism's exclusivity? It's secretive rituals? It's strange doctrines? Probably not. Even if they do know all the shady and weird stuff about Mormonism, do most Americans care? Should they care? With the possibility that their next president is a Mormon, does it matter?

    We are not Voting Religion this election. We are voting Life or Death! Of the Unborn. Euthanasia. Our Country. Simple as that. Blessings...

    "...shady and weird stuff about Mormonism," Wow. I'd like the author to break down Catholicism. I am a Roman Catholic - and we have plenty shady and weird stuff ... like the Bone Church in Italy. (Just one Example) Let's not re-hash "shady" stuff that our Church has done. Obviously, we have been around for 2,000+ years - so we must be doing something right. :) However, let's be careful about throwing around terms like shady and weird unless we are going to apply those terms to our faith too.

    HuH - this world will perish, you're right. Eventually, it's bound to happen. I can think of two causes of global destruction: some natural phenomenon we can't help, like a meteor, or we mess up our world beyond repair. God wants us to think of the next life, yes, but do you really think he wants us to ignore the situation in this life? What do you mean Christianity is not about making the world a better place??? It's 100% about that. Didn't Jesus try and make the world a better place? Didn't Dr. King? Didn't the anti-Nazi resistance?

    HuH? To which "book" are you referring? The Holy Bible or The Book of Mormon. If you are speaking of the Book of Mormon, you are right, Catholics probably don't read it. If you are referring to the Holy Bible, it is the Catholic Faith you have to thank for its existence. We wrote it and we know what we meant when we wrote it. God bless.

    This article assumes that the beliefs of Mormons are a lot weirder than my experience as a member.

    For those who wonder if Mormons are polygamists or that they will be Gods with their own planet(s), you might want to read this easy to read FAQ titled Mormonism 101.

    Christianity is not about making this world a better place. If you read the book, which Catholics have a hard time doing, you will realize that this earth will perish.

    JoAnn: Well Said. And to this TRUTH, Rob and Bulbajer, their should be no division among the people. Always Blessings...

    Here's the reality folks. What do you want in the WH the next 4 years? Mormonism or COMMUNISM? Ummm gee, let me think about it - MORMONISM. No contest. Wise up. God bless.

    Bulbajer, we are simply doing what we do best. Finding more ways to divide and seperate people. Can't have the mormons because they aren't christian enough. He's going to be the nominee. Little too late to be concerned about mormonism.
