Why would you belong to a religion that you don't agree with? Personally I don't trust anyone that I can't sit down and have a beer with, let alone a cup of coffee.
I belong to the catholic church and don't agree 100% with them on everything. Does every married couple agree 100%. If you live your life that restrictively, you'd be a lonely person. I am quite sure Gov Romney has sat for a beer.
'Catholics believe that the Pope is capable of communicating with God on a more spiritual level than the rest of the population. ' Then they do not understand their own denomination. Nowhere in Catholic dogma does it state that to be true.
I did not say it was in scripture. It is a generally accepted principal that the Pope is believed to be essentially perfect in ruling on matters of faith. Yet many catholics don't agree inclduing myself. That does not mean I wish to leave the faith
A Pope has not spoken anything new in the mode of infalibility for well over 100 years, though all have repeated past statements. And infalibility does not mean the the POPE is perfect.
I never they have spoken of much new. The belief is perfect in matters of "Faith". Not perfect as a person. The point is simply that this is an example of one of many beliefs that many practicing catholics do not hold. Yet they still belong to faith

Comparing Romney's record of charitable acts with that of Obama, one reaches a rather different conclusion about the characters of the two men.
I don't care that he has the pile of gold. What I care is how he got it, and it seems that Bain Capital in being investigating for tax evasion with other companies doing the same thing.
Are you talking about Democrat New York AG Eric Schneidermann's surprise claim that what has long been generally accepted as a fully legal method of reporting investor fees is suddenly an illegal tax dodge? Well. Isn't that politically convenient?
He even short changes his church that expects 20 percent. One of the hidden treasures in his tax return and in the Cayman Islands is money "owed" to the Mormon church.

I suggest the excellent book "Under the banner of heaven" which contains a very engrossing account of the origins of this cult.
Tolerance and stupidity are two different things.
I don't think I'd accuse the left of laying claim to stupidity, but, all right, if you say so.
I don't really think that the media is mounting and assault on Mormonism. Actually if they were to say something they would have said about Ryan's affiliation with the Catholic Church... For the past few years, Catholics had some sexual problems...
Isn't lying a sin in these religions? That's what bothers me the most. Also the lack of values. Any variant of Chrisitianity and other religions (cult and mainstream) for that matter puts value on taking care of the poor. Not so in today's GOP .
The Democratic Party's de facto abandonment of its principle of religious tolerance for the tactical purposes of the 2012 presidential campaign is a measure of how low it has fallen under the rule of the Obama political machine.

You're joking right? John F. Kennedy had to assure the American people that he would not blindly follow the pope.
If you are in public life, you should be prepared to answer ANY question....say....like....show us your TAX returns.
Or College records...and medical records

The questions should be asked. Amazing watching Ryan try to explain the reasoning behind Myth's flip flopping on social issues. Anything to justify their hatred of Obama.
I love those Omen movies but I wouldn't want to live thought them!

Part of Mormonism is believing that all other religions are the work of Satan.
And Islam says that nonbelievers should be killed...
No breaks. When you are in the public eye and serving the people, all is up for scrutiny. I do not take Obama at his 'Christian' word, I WATCH him; he has to prove it to me.
