2. Actually, it is his 2011 tax return

2012 tax return is filed in 2013. Get it together, liberal blogs need to do better than the regular media.

4. He is a republican and they won't care much. It's sad really but it is his money and he can donate

 

to whatever he wants and I will make sure seeing his donation will vote against him for it. But again it is his money. It is just like me giving a large amount of money for pro-choice issues. Some won't like and will vote against me. In the end it is my money.

5. I think Southern fundamentalists

will NOT like the fact that Romney gave more to the Mormon church than to the IRS.

As I recall, Southern Baptists are not growing as much as they used to. They see the Mormons as a competitor.

They also see the Mormon religion as a cult.

6. DUH

The Mormon religion I believe were the top backers of Prop 8 here in California. They have multiple wives and probably consensual sex with all of them at one time which is a private matter, but NOOOOOOOOO, they want to invade my bed room, my sex life and whats in my underwear.

9. Of course he did = the price of planet Romney upon Mitt's ascension = Religion+Politics.

Looks as though the Republican convention is going to be between two competing church cartels.

10. No surprise there!

He's a fuckin' MORMON! The Catholics run the anti-same-sex-marriage front groups, and the Mormons fund them.

12. DAMN I'm glad I didnt follow my employer to Utah.

 

Those fascists tried to blackball all the protestors of war criminal Cheney's speech. Never again should they get employed around here, said the Mormons at Salt Lake City.

How FUCKING dare they discriminate, and then kvetch about our considering their cult in our analysis's.

That fool aint speaking for God. He is a Jehovah's MITTness.
