    Did you get the secret underwear before you announced it was a joke?

    I think Christians need to know the differences between them and Mormons before they vote for Romney. Mormons are only Christians because they say they are christians. But they aren't following Jesus from 2000 years ago. They say he visited Joseph Smith in 1800 and they follow those teachings. Not the bible.

    They say that when Jesus' apostles died, so did his authority. It wasn't passed down from generation to generation to where it exists in, for example, the Catholic Church. They say other Christians are following a man made corrupt religion. A cult. They are just too nice to say it. But why else did Joseph Smith start his own religion? Because God told him the existing ones were corrupt! And I actually agree with him.

    So if I started a new religion and wrote a new bible with stuff Jesus told me, would any of you buy it? Would you consider me a Christian or a cult?

    In the Mormon Church the authority has been passed down. They have apostles that are alive today that have that authority from God. Does the Catholic Church have this? No they do not. Does Jerry Falwell? No. Jesus' apostles around 100 a.d. did not pass it on and the Catholic Church was corrupt for over 1000 years and even today is evil and lets priests molest children.

    This from wiki: Jesus leads the church through revelation and has chosen a single man, called "the Prophet" or President of the Church, as his spokesman on the earth. The current president is Thomas S. Monson. He and two counselors (who usually are ordained apostles) form the First Presidency, the presiding body of the church; twelve other apostles form the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. When a president dies, his successor is invariably the most senior member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles

    If you want to know everything you need to know about Mormons, watch this hilarious South Park episode.

    That sounds gay coming from a guy. :lol: Not that there is anything wrong with that.

    But I am wondering how evangelicals and catholics are going to vote for a Mormon if they have a problem voting for a Jew, Muslim or non believer. It truly is a cult that was started in 1800 by a cult leader Joseph Smith. Sure they say they are christians but thats because he visited Joseph Smith in 1800.

    They need to know what Mormons are all about. And I plan on educating them.

    Well, I'm an atheist, and don't care if Mormons are really Christian or not.

    My problem with them is that their religion is a lie, and that they seem to not understand that there is a clear line drawn between Church and State called the First Amendment.

    And they are all a bunch of creepy assholes.

    I think a lot of them will vote for Romney because they hate Obama so much they can't see straight. Romney could be up there in a leather jacket saying "Satan Rules" and they'd still vote for him.
