According to the Drudge report Mrs Rick Perry is upset because her husband has been “brutalized” by the media because of his “faith”. Really? The Governor who’s pet attack pastor savaged 13,000,000 + Mormons just a few days ago. That husband (of course she’s not Mormon so she only has one, right? -sarcasm alert)? Let’s see what other savagery Mr Romney has been exposed to lately, shall we. We can then compare who’s more brutalized.
These are just a few of the hits one can find with just two words romney/mormon. Don’t be confused, the people who “reported” on this issue wouldn’t recognize actual doctrine from the Mormon ( or the true name of the church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints) church if it rose up and bit them on the nose.
So let us revisit some early church history. Members of the church were beaten, abused, humiliated, chased from their homes, robbed, cursed, chased from cities they built, their leaders jailed, their leader murdered in cold blood (no one out of the 200 or so members of the gang that shot leaders Joseph and Hyrum Smith were ever convicted) and an extermination order was still in effect until the middle 1970’s. Their property left behind, taking only what they could carry in a wagon load, Mormons were chased from the city of Navoo across the frozen Mississippi in Feb. 1846. Between 400-600 people died that winter into the next due to exposure, disease and malnourishment. The Latter day Saints then moved to Utah where they made the desert bloom but they were still harassed. Through all of this whenever the saints sought redress, guess what the local, state and federal answer was. So sad, too bad.
I’m so sorry your husbands had a hard time. I’m so sorry his Christian companions and coworkers have turned against him because of his religion-sarcasm again. While it is difficult when one’s enemies attack them, it is so much more painful when the very people who are supposed to be on your side, stick a dirk between your ribs.
Don’t worry Ms. Perry, I’m sure the governor will get over it. After all it’s not like one has to worry about their actions. Once they’ve accepted Jesus as their personal savior it doesn’t much matter what they do,right. Of course I might have that wrong. It’s just something I’ve read about evangelicals and of course I take as gospel things written about others by people who know little to nothing about them.
