    I've talked to a host of people that say Romney's Mormon beliefs hurt his chances of becoming President more than his ability to lead.

    So I delved into the background of the Mormon cult and found out that Romney indeed does have a racist belief system onset by his Mormon religion. And doubt many voters, outside of Mormonism, understand this. Maybe a little too late?



    "The Book of Mormon describes the Lamanites as descendants of Laman and Lemuel, two rebellious brothers of a family of Israelites who crossed the ocean in a boat around 600 BC. Their brother Nephi founded the Nephite nation. The Lamanites reputedly gained their dark skin as a sign of the curse for their rebelliousness (the curse was the withdrawal of the Spirit of God), and warred with the Nephites over a period of centuries. The book says that Jesus appeared and converted all the Lamanites to Christianity; however, after about two centuries, the Lamanites fell away and eventually exterminated all the Nephites. By the end of the Book of Mormon, the Lamanites were defined less by their skin color than by their lack of Christianity. Many Mormons believe that the Polynesian people originated from the descendents of Hagoth who led his people off on a ship and was never heard from again. Although Hagoth was a Nephite, these Mormons regard Polynesians as Lamanites."

    Southern Baptists are really racist religious hacks anyway so I can see why you wouldn't mind voting for Romney.

    Romney will probably win more of the evangelical vote that Bush.


    Not really even a good try.

    Anything democrats can think of to hang their hat on will do for them. Romney's religion only matters to democrats and only because they think they can use it a a wedge issue. To republicans, especially to evangelicals, it doesn't matter at all.
