Romney vows Mormon church would not run White House
By Steve Holland
COLLEGE STATION, Texas (Reuters) - Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney vowed on Thursday the Mormon church would not run the White House if he is elected, as he sought to reassure Americans wary of his religion.
Attempting to halt a slide in the polls in Iowa, where former Arkansas Gov. and Baptist preacher Mike Huckabee has surged into the lead, Romney made an impassioned appeal to Americans to look beyond his religion.
"Let me assure you that no authorities of my church, or of any other church for that matter, will ever exert influence on presidential decisions. Their authority is theirs, within the province of church affairs, and it ends where the affairs of the nation begin," Romney said.
One has to wonder why, in theses modern times, does a candidate feel compelled to tell us such things?
Well, maybe it's because your religion is creepy as hell and more along the lines of a cult. . . oh wait, most religion is creepy as hell and more along the lines of a cult. . . but the mormons seem to have raised the bar on creepy cultish mainstreamism.
WTF?! Romney is a guy who wears magic underwear because he thinks the rapture is going to occur at any time and he's gotta be wearing magic underwear to participate. He is losing the front runner position to a guy who is a baptist "preacher" and believes that the story of creation in his bible is true and modern science and evolution are a hoax. Holy shit. IS that the best the republicans have to offer? Oh yea, there's "Rudy" whose long line of defects is incredible, but he too is being offered up to the right wing "family values" coalition as some sort of plausible candidate. I truly hope they nominate any one of these moronic buffoons. . . oh wait, they did that in 2000 and the moronic buffoon took the presidency.
Oh fuck. Is creationism, magic underwear or cross dressing in the future of presidential decrees?
