We hear from Harry Reid that Mitt Romney should not be the face of Mormonism. First off most members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints don’t usually refer to themselves as Mormons. It is a term that is tinged with unpleasant and unflattering associations and it is confusing for the general public. “Mormons” don’t worship the prophet Mormon from the book of the same name, nor do we elevate the Book of Mormon over the Bible. The actual name of the church more closely expresses the beliefs and doctrines of the church and it’s 14,000,000 plus adherents throughout the world. We believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, in His Father (our eternal father) and in the Holy Spirit. We believe in the commandments and doctrine contained in both the Old an New Testaments and those in the Book of Mormon (another testament of Jesus Christ) and the other books of scripture.
That said, which of the members of the “Mormon” church is more deeply aligned with the scriptures, commandments and doctrines contained within the Christian Scriptures? Would that be the one who belongs to a political party that favors the murder of innocents who have yet to be born ( or if Pres. Obama had his wish even those who were born after their mothers had consented to have them assassinated)? Would it be the party of same sex marriage in complete disregard of the doctrine contained in the scriptures forbidding such practices? Would that be the party of tax and spend -stealing from those who have to give to those who refuse to work? Would that be the party of dimmitude that seeks to suppress the rights of followers of Christ while they advance the rights of atheist, agnostics and followers of Allah over everyone else? Would it be the party who sees nothing wrong with the adoption of Sharia law, a law like unto the one fulfilled by the death of Jesus Christ, which occurred so that we could live a higher law (maybe that wasn’t such a good idea, seems a lot of people need to be told how many steps to walk and what to do every minute of the day)? Maybe it’s the party of it’s OK to lie about someone as long as you’re doing it for the good of the country? Or perhaps it’s the party of “we can’t even find integrity in the dictionary” because we’ve been publicly educated and can’t spell, read or think in a logical fashion, but we an tell you how we “feel”?
I for one am tired of Harry Reid pretending he knows something about being a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and then standing on the floor of the Senate and lying about another member of the Church for political gain. And then when he’s been proven wrong (as with Gov. Romney’s tax return which Reid agitated for month for) he doubles down, tries to distract attention by thinking up new lies and innuendos, and refusing to apologize or even acknowledge he was wrong.
So while I agree Mitt Romney should not be the “face” of Mormonism, neither should Harry Reid. Reid should also stop throwing the Church under the bus every time it’s convenient for him. He has done and does today a really good job of pretending he’s not even a member most of the time. He should go back to doing that because as an example of what “Mormons” believe and how they act he’s pretty pitiful and I feel truly sorrow for him. May God have mercy on his soul.
