Something political to think about.... My husband would be so proud I posted this!!
MITT ROMNEY: CAN A MORMON GET ELECTED
President Of The U.S.?
--By David Shurtleff (Not A Mormon)
Heliumites, Bloggers, Political Scientists ... lend me your eyes. I come to criticize Mitt Romney not to praise him. The evil that men do is highlighted by the media. The good is often buried under labels ... so let it be with Romney.
The Media has touted that Romney is a Mormon, if it is so, it is a grievous thing and may cost him the election. When the scandal laden Olympics was embarrassing our nation, Romney stepped in and turned it into a showcase-Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Romney won the governorship of Massachusetts as a REPUBLICAN, yes, in a state that gives us Sen. Kennedy. He showed the ability to work with all people, of all political backgrounds - yet Romney is a MORMON and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Romney saved a state government facing fiscal disaster, bringing economic expansion and staving off unemployment, something this nation could use - Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Unlike many politicians, Romney has remained faithful to his wedding vows, keeping his commitments to his wife and blessing his children - Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
The twelfth article of Romney's faith, one which he no doubt memorized as a child, affirms that it is his duty to honor, obey, and sustain the law- Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Romney's faith group is recognized and respected by governments throughout the world, it was so respected that it was miraculously allowed to build a temple in communist East Germany before the wall came down-Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Romney's church teaches that the constitution is a divinely inspired document and that this nation was established by the God of Heaven. Such respect for our nation and its founding document can make just another politician into a statesman-Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Romney's religious organization teaches love and compassion for all human beings and provides millions of dollars in aid to many countries. It also sent thousands of volunteers to aid Katrina victims in our own country. That aid is given freely, without regard to the religious preference of the recipients-Yet Romney is a MORMON, and surely a MORMON cannot be President.
Wait a minute. What is it about being Mormon that disqualifies Mitt Romney from being an effective president? It is true that there may be theological differences that exist between Romney and others, but he is not running for Bishop, Rabbi, Pope, Minister, Imam, or Pastor...
He is running for President.
