2. Excellent Documentary!

Thank you for posting this! John Sweeney's BBC documentaries are often riveting. I encourage people to watch his one regarding Scientology.

BTW, I apologise for the thread drift!

6. Well thank you for your input!

I can tell by your thousands of posts, and all the deep insight you provided in rebutting the points you believe are false, that there is no chance you're just a Romney supporter dropping by to attempt some damage control.

Have a nice day!

7. The Video struck a chord very quickly and early by ones that don't like it so..........

Watch it..... its only the BBC.... I have other videos but they are much more radical
and not by the BBC.

So watch and repudiate it.... I found it tame, but DU knows me...LOL

35. how so?

The spokesman for the church denied and then recanted his denials when confronted with facts.
When questioned about certain practices of the church, he first denied them and then stated we don't do that anymore.
Which is it? Either they never shunned or spied, or when caught they given up doing those things.

10. Did you see, in the section where the young people

learning Mandarin are being interviewed, the part where the young lady mentions that the religion is huge on accepting others. What a bunch of BS. Romney comes across as being a bigot not a person who loves, respects and accepts others.

21. Did the young lady help translate Prop 8 into Mandarin, for respect and acceptance of others

or did she just work hard to remove civil rights from others with time and money? That young lady is a vicious liar.

19. This being Democratic Underground, hitting the opposition party is seen as good

This is your second comment in thread and on DU. I note you somehow can not manage more than a whine, no specifics, no cites, just a characterization of the piece. Worthless yammering from a stranger is not very persuasive. The BBC is perhaps the world's most respected broadcasting entity. And you are?

has actual journalism. What kind of Democrat says that anything is 'off limits' in defeating a threat to the future of the United States?

25. Nothing is off limits to the GOP. Even obstructing jobs legislation. Hurting the country just to

improve their chances in the election.

Exposing the peculiarities of Mormonism pales by comparison.

24. Baptism of the Dead

They baptised Anne Frank 10 time. I guess they think if at first you don't succeed try try again.

Now we know where Romney got his arrogance.

40. Perhaps they keep in contact by familiar spirits. Read the Book of Isaiah

from the Old Testament in the Bible. And where are the baptismal ceremonies held? Can contacts with demons/familiar spirits be made at the Bishop level? Or does it take an Apostle.

Mormons were legally killed in Missouri in the 1830s. Feel free to research. In the 1830s this cult referred to Christians as Paulites. According to the New Testament, Paul was the only Apostle chosen by the Risen Jesus Christ. Many Jews do not believe that Jesus Christ of the New Testament, is the Savior. Some think the Savior has yet to be born. Do Mormons believe baptism after death can move a spirit from the telestial kingdom to the celestial kingdom?

Christians have moved away from the teaching of Moses and Paul to keep Church or Faith and State or Law, separate.
The protestant Dallas pastor in the video, could possibly shed some light on this ceremony.

33. I think Mormonism

is a crazy brainwashing cult. I also believe consenting adults should have the right to commit to any configuration of family partnership those involved consent to. That includes gay marriage and polyamorous.

Sue me.

41. This was a very good documentary - Everyone should see it

I learned a lot about the mormon religion which gives me even greater concern that as a mormon, romeny would not be able to hold office of the presidency without inflicting his religion on the rest of Americans.

It brings up the important point that in America we don't questions someone's religion (unless you're Barack Obama...) and how the beliefs of the candidate might clash with their ability to hold office.

I'd like to hear more from Park Romney...who knew there was a likeable Romeny?
