I AM FURIOUS at the anti-Mormon posts of some members of the DP

This is getting out of hand. I am all for free speech and open discussion, but I am livid at some people who are spouting ignorant hatred. Carpavel had a post earlier today entitled, "Romney and Huntsman skip Frank Luntz debate because it was in christian church." The post was filled with lies and innuendo. The original poster suggested that Mormons think the cross is a "satanic symbol" (not even remotely true). He made fun of some of our most sacred beliefs (such as the wearing of symbolic garments) and posted links to content that is grossly inaccurate smearings of the LDS faith that have been documented to be entirely false and nothing more that hatred and distortions. Now I know that Romney is a terrible candidate for President, but it has NOTHING to do with his faith. There are a lot of Mormons who are Ron Paul supporters. They support him because his beliefs about government are the most closely in line with Church teachings. There are far more Mormons who support Romney because of CRAP LIKE THE POST I MENTIONED. They feel attacked and that the only way to stop the attacks is to vote for a Mormon president. This ignorant hate-mongering has NO PLACE in the Daily Paul. It ought to be immediately taken down by the original poster and he/she ought to be ashamed of themselves. This is junk and really pisses me off.

I'm a former Mormon

There a lot of misconceptions about the church. I won't get into why I disagree with the Church here, but I will never support any Mormon for a high ranking public position like the presidency. Simply because they take allegiance to the prophet, not the people. You may disagree with this, but if you are a practicing Mormon you believe the prophet talks to God, and if the prophet says God told him to do something, then everyone has to do it. That is just crazy in my opinion. One of the things I really do like about the church is that Ezra Taft Benson was big on the constitution and it is talked about quite often in the church. Ron Paul should be a no brainer for Mormons, but of course they would support a Mormon first.



It can happen anywhere..

Everyone just hates..naturally. There are misconceptions and distortions of every religion for every person. People try to talk down on Muslims, Jews, Mormans etc because of what a few people are doing who claim they "follow" the faith and what the mainstream media depicts (ironic happening over here). I'm not even religious but i know that all religions have the same meaning if you brush off the different ceremonial traditions and the specific name of said god; there all about love. Relax and don't let a few people make you angry, we are not all like that. Focus on the campaign bro

"you're a funny dude, but who gives a fuck about that? I don't care about someone's wit, I care about the courage of their heart and the honesty of their mind."

I Agree!

Seems like the anti-mormon message is spreading throughout the Daily Paul. For supporters of a candidate that promotes the Golden Rule and respect for others, I find it insane that they would want to spread these lies and hate. We, as ron paul supporters, complain about the ignorance and distortion from the media but yet some supporters find no problem with sharing ignorance and distortions in regards to my religion. I hope one day they can realize that Mormons are good people and that a lot of us are also Ron Paul supporters. www.mormon.org
